I'm pretty curious also. Everytime I take a turn and peel out the traction control kicks in and stops my nonsense:tisk:

so we never did get a reply. How did your car do that burnout? Especially with Traction Control. Can you disable traction control? Any mods to your Catera and what year is it?

If thats what you like to call it, actually the way the catera intake is designed, it heats the air up before entering the upper intake plenum. Hotter air =less oxygeg atoms=better emmisions ....at the cost of lower power thats why the intake runs down then back up so the hot air from the radiator has a chance to heat the air up sooo....the catera comes with a hot air intake ehhh
By the way im a mechanic

thats right im doin the burn out on ice you can tell if you listen to the video the tires are squeeling and theres smoke coming off of them but yep that ice?????? i did put the tires on the wet surface for the innitial brake burn to get thing moving though. but i think you just jelous that your car probably wont do that or you dont know how to hahaha..........ICE come on man you coulda thought of something better than that go back and watch the video!
