Powerbraking a 6M???

Just wondering if it was possible to powerbrake a 6M, and if so.. how? I've never powerbraked a manual before.

put the car into reverse, while rolling back put car in first, come up to about 2500 to 3000 rpm, pop the clutch and stomp on the brake. You can do the same thing in a wet box without going into reverse. But for the best result install a line lock.

Yes, and keep in mind not to press too hard on the pedal. Use the least amount of pressure required to keep the car from moving, lest you put a hurtin on your rear brakes. Also, you are going to have to modulate the accelerator. The LS2 has more than enough power to spin the tires until you start bouncing off the rev limiter. Also, for the best show, use some bleach or motor oil on the ground and you will achieve clouds of white smoke only to be rivaled by mother nature herself.
