As others have said, 2nd is better than first, this is because you have more room to play in. Not only that, make sure you disable TC by stopping with your foot on the brake and holding the tc button for 5 seconds until the screen says that it is off.

Guys I wanted to resurrect this thread as I have been having major issues with trying to burnout in second gear. I can get them going in first no problem, but when i try in second the car just seems to bog down and almost stall.

The Traction control and Advance track are OFF. I tried revving in second to about 4k and dropping the clutch and the car just lurches forward and I tried starting a bit higher and the engine just revs way up and the clutch smells to high heaven.

Have I roasted the clutch?

Have it in third, take rev the engine up to about 6500 RPM's and side step the clutch...
Have all of that sissy traction control stuff turned off as well...
When you twist the rear end or break something... Be sure and ***** about Ford's quality of parts on your Mustang and be sure to tell them about it when you want it covered under warranty for defective parts...
And if Ford says anything back, just start screaming lemon law and safety hazards...

That should work…

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

What do you mean side step? Also I think I am just a bad driver I went out and tried again and got a good one going in second with a nice cloud behind, and it was the tires this time not the clutch.

I just don't think I am dumping the clutch fast enough or all the way and revving the engine to burnout and partially having clutch in = bad I assume

Side-step means to let your foot slide off the side of the clutch pedal.

Pro-tip: You do this enough times and you'll glaze your clutch enough that you'll have trouble just getting off the line never mind having it grab at high rpm...

Not that I'm trying to rain on your parade...but if you want to do burnouts all the time, get skinnier tires. The whole point of wide tires is to grip the road.

Mods don't matter.

This is what I have done to give myself great burnouts, with a nice cloud, limited stress on the drivetrain and no worres about needing to rev too high.

I disconnected the hoses that connect to my spray nozzles to clean my windshield. I added a couple couplers onto them and ran each one to the rear of the car, jsut above the tire. The fluid in the winshield washer resevoir was taken out and a mixture of bleach and water is all it takes.

Pull up to a light, push the wiper button in for about 10 seconds, or as long as you want, really - bleach is cheap. You can burn out in 1, 2, 3 very easily and not worry about added stress or throwing rubber on your paint.

Dueces.

I agree completely, it is just so damn tempting sometimes. I wonder if I have have glazed my clutch a bit at all as I have got that yum clutch burning smell a few times as I got used to the car.

What's the average cost to replace the clutch? is it the whole clutch or clutch pads?

An added plus for Performance White owners is that the bleach will help return the rear bumper cover to match the fenders.

You can do an extended John Force type burn out by applying the brake slightly with your left foot after you have dumped the clutch. Left foot controls speed, right foot controls smoke!
