I understand that the top of 2nd won't hook up, but that doesn't mean you can't brake boost in 3rd.

Step 1: Floor the accelerator in 3rd
Step 1.5: hold your speed steady with your left foot riding the brake while boost builds
Step 2: lift your left foot off the brake on the 3rd honk and take off at full boost...
