yeah, the foor brake, the e-brake only operates the rear wheels.

You have to modulate the brakes, so that you have enough engine power to break the rear wheels loose, and still have enough brake pressure to hold the fronts.

If you've done powerbraking for a run, you know at around 2000-2500 RPM, the rears will start to break loose, so you hold the rpms to around 1750 when racing. To do a burnout, you just floor it.

Im not sure what would happen if you put the e-brake on and hit the gas in an auto stang...probably just wouldn't move at all. You would have a much greater possibility of breaking something important - like your driveshaft or transmission

Well i got the car back from good ol' dealership. They found absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission! They said they couldn't replicate what I was describing to them when they test drove it.

So basically ive narrowed it down to the worn out clutch, right?

Anyone have any other ideas for what might cause bucking / jolting when I let off the gas?

UPDATE:

There is now a solution to the bucking problem!

In the stock intake, there is a small screen shaped like a disc. Without this disc in place in the intake, bucking results from the air rushing in. I am not sure to which aftermarket (or stock for that matter) intakes this applies to (I am now sure Ford put it there for a reason), but if anyone has acquired a nice bucking when they take their foot off the gas with their aftermarkey intake, make sure this metal screen is in place somewhere before the MAF in your intake. With the K&N FIPK2, the MAF is just inches after the air filter, which is why the air had no time to stabilize before hitting the MAF
The screen somehow controls the incoming rush of air - and there is no more bucking!!
Never would have thought that the little screen would make such a difference

I've got news for ya!

The screen doesn't do anything, except act as a failsafe if teh aircleaner isn't installed properly.

Your MAF was probably not perfectly level, which can give you incorrect readings . ..

A lot of shops incorrectly give the screen some sort of credit to airflow, but it's not the screen, it's the MAF positioning.

Im not saying you're wrong..but I didn't change the position of the MAF.
I just put the screen in before it, and now I have no problems.
