    Burnouts/ traction control

    Does everyone else have an issue with getting the car to sit still for a smokey burnout? I turned off traction control and stabilitrac and shortly after it started to really spin it shut down. I know hitting the gas then brake shuts it down. But from what I read hitting the brake first then the gas should work. Either the rear brakes over power the engine or there is something else shutting it down but I'm not sure what. Anyone have a fix for it? Other than letting off the brake for a rolling burnout. Once it started to spin I let off the break and it was almost instant redline so I shifted and did a descent second gear burnout. But I was looking for a stationary smokey burnout for a video.

    Ive spun in the snow for hundred of feet trying to rock the car, bouncing the tach off the rev limiter with no issues. You're holding the TC off button for 5 seconds right?

    Yes till stabilitrac is off too. In the rain with no issues I've slid all over the road 1st,2nd 3rd gear no problem. Even dry roads around corners slide ways. But trying to power break the car for a burnout not moving forward it wouldn't do it. Couldn't find anything in the HpTuner that would shut that off. So I'm just wondering if it's really strong back breaks which I doubt or another safety feature that I'm missing

    +1. Has anyone shopped for new tires for their ATS? There is no way I would be talking burn out at the price of these tires.

    Just got 2 new ones because I kissed a curb with one (ugly, but structurally sound) and one had a bubble in part of the sidewall and tread. The tire shop was surprised how much tread was still left on everything with 20k.

    I found the car has a brake torque limit from the factory set at about 2250 rpm. So when it was spinning with the brake on and hit 2250rpm the computer shut it down. Once I raised that it's good to go. Big smokey Burnouts now. I know it will go sideways around corners with no problem but haven't tried donuts yet

    Re: Burnouts/ traction control

    I hope you are not driving an automatic and thinking you can do a mad burn out.

    If it's a manual, you should have no problems spinning those tires.

    Some of the opinions on this forum are just funny. You are right my automatic didn't do a first and second gear burn out with no problem. I should probably get a manual

    Re: Burnouts/ traction control

    lol Automatics are a pain for burnouts (unless you have a high Tq V8), I had a manual and could roast the tires all day (in theory) just rev the bish up to like 3.5-4K, dump the clutch and modulate the brakes

    Also, you better have the limited slip diff or it'll just be sad
