    Heating tires up with a M-6

    I've only drag raced my other car which is an auto and was just wondering how you guys go about heating up your tires with a M-6 at the track. Do you just rev it up and dump the cluth or do you heel and toe the brake and gas and let out the clutch slowly so you don't put as much strain on your clutch.

    Kinda of a dumb question but i had to ask.

    Basicly.
    Go about doing a burnout like normal...but with the linelock engaged.
    No wear on the rear brakes.

    There isn't any 'dancing' involved with a linelock really.
    Firmly press brake, flip linelock switch, let off brake.
    Rev, dump clutch.

    ohhhh i thought with a linelock u still held the brakes and it just stopped the back brakes from being applied.

    I have to do the Heel/Toe. It is pretty easy, but does wear the rear brakes.

    Easy, use left foot on Clutch like normal.
    put Right heel on brake and press, then use toes to press on accelerator to desired RPM's and release clutch.

    1st time is a bit nerve racking, but much easier after that.

    i would have been happy with rear drums but call me old fashioned.

    what brand line lock does everyone run? i really dont want to have to actually buy an slp product.

    I have the SLP one.
    Just buy it from someone else that sells SLP crap.
    There is a Hurst linelock as well, but I don't believe it has the pre-bent lines like the SLP kit.

    Haha, or you could just get rid of your rear brakes. When I had my Chevelle, I found out they aren't necessary.

    I did burnouts every once in a while with the brake, then about a year later got line lock just for fun, and realized the burnouts didn't get any easier. When I took the drums apart, there was zero pad left and the drums themselves were all gouged to hell, so I figure I probably never had rear brakes on the car at all.

    I drive through the waterbox, rev to about 3000, dump the clutch, ease back onto the brakes and the ls1 takes care of the rest, I feather it up to about 4500, and let the nittos cook for about 10 seconds. If you are worried about wear to your rear brakes, youve got MUCH bigger topics to fret over-among them are ring gear, axles, clutch, u-joints, pinion seal, valve springs, throwout bearing, slave cyl., should I continue?

    What i do on the street is... rev to about 3000 and then find where your clutch engages... and go a little before that... then pop the clutch right when it turn the magic color!
