Ashley, you actually have the advantage of brake boosting. Try this.

Stage the car (in gear, not in neutral).
Press and hold brakes.
Apply throttle (this will help the car start to build boost).
When the second light hits, floor it while letting the brakes out.

Practice until you get it right.


This will cause extra stress on powertrain/drivetrain components and you are responsible for any damage resulting from doing this. ;)
