Is this even possible. I know my truck only has 2000 miles on it and is bone stock, but I cant for the life of me figure out how to get a good burnout going from a dead stand still. I know this seems a little childish maybe..... but its something Id like to be able to pull off. :)

:rof rev the motor.....dump the clutch.....stand on the brake...... I used to do second gear burnouts in my 5 speed stang, 1st sucked. Second gear you could really stretch it out for some killer marks. But dont know if that works the same with a big truck....:peelout

Boosted launches work the best to instantly break them loose, but can be hard on a completely stock truck... Especially the clutch.

Yea you should be able to do it. Ive done it a couple times in 3rd gear with my 315's but i also have a dual disk clutch and a Smarty. I didnt want to do it for a long time since i just spend over $1000 on tires. Never tired it when i was completly stock though. The only thing i can think of is what morris said, rev motor, dump clutch and stand on brake but make sure your tires are spinning before you stand on the brake. If not say Bye Bye to your clutch. If you get a programmer and have stock tires still you wont need the brake, they just sit there and roast.

The ECM has a thing called torque management which basically controls how much power you're really putting to the wheels, so if you're flooring it but not going anywhere the computer won't let you break em lose.. You'll need a programmer or something that can change the stock ECM..

Im not 100% on how it works, but thats the jist of it.

Ha, Ha! Yea, you can do it. My best friend has an all stock 06 5.9 QC 4X4 and he does it all the time. 3rd gear, 3000 rpms. Let out the clutch until it just barely starts to grab, then just dump it. Watch your revs as you do it. If they start to drop then give it a little more gas. Once the tires start spinning you can either ride it out or ease on to the brakes and really lay down some rubber:peelout

You can put it 1st gear and stand on the brake and let the clutch out slow and it will sit there and bark the tires with no gas just idle although that is not much of a burnout but it si cool to see the look on peoples faces when they see you are not giving it any throttle.

if your good you can actually put your heal on the break and the front of your foot on the gas then use your left foot for your clutch. If you go to you tube and look up banner burnouts or something you can see a guy doing it. Its hard but once you get it down its easy.

This is where my size 15's come in handy:woot:

I just put the left side of my right foot on the brake while the left side of my right foot controls the fuel.....slowly let out the clutch and voila....smoke show.

Personally, I like breakin' the 35's loose in 4th gear.....a little more dramatic then just sitting there.
