    E-brake pulled all the way up, car in 6th gear, hold gas pedal to floor and slowly let the clutch pedal all the way out and hold it there. Not really but I always thought it'd be cool to watch someone smoke a clutch trying it.

    Be gentle for a while. 200 miles or so.

    Then do what you will.
