It’s hard to find the muscle car lover out there that isn’t the fan of the Ford Mustang’s Line Lock feature.

That is because the system allows any newbie with the happy throttle and some tire money to blow the chance to formulate some clouds courtesy of vaporized rear wheels and the engine’s labor.

The problem is that Mustang makes it too easy, even with the manual that requires dumping the clutch prior to roasting, which denies its drivers the chance to do the burnout the old fashioned way.

Thanks to Engineering Explained, there is no need to stay in the dark. Jason Fenske once again uses his sacrificial Honda, its rear tires to show us how to properly pull off the burnout in the rear-wheel drive manual vehicle. Unlike in the automatic car, you can’t press the brake and mash the throttle to achieve a desired effect.

The crucial difference is that in the manual, keeping engine RPM too low or pressing the brakes too hard is the recipe for either a burnt clutch, the stalled engine, or both.

The key, after disabling traction control of course, is brake modulation and the high engine RPMs. With the clutch in and throttle pressed, dump a clutch and immediately press the brake.

From here, a trick is to not press the brake too hard as to stall the engine or burn the clutch and also to press firmly enough to keep the vehicle from accelerating forward.

Next is modulating the throttle, and which can usually be left high in the rev range. So ,we wish you happy burnouts and apologize in advance to your rear tires.
