Ok ive check around and read alot thoughtout the forum but i still not sure how to go about doing this. Some say turn off the TC via the button hit the ebrake and floor it but this only causes the car to start in 2nd and pull the car. Ive herd if you pull the abs fuse it turns off the TC and gives you 1st but only on cars without OBD-2 cars. Im tired of my friends with there lil ricers burnin out and sayin my caddy dont have enough balls to do it. Id like to pull it off once and soon before my powertrain warrenty expires on the car in the event the car drops the tranny. I kno this is stupid i kno its a caddy and not designed to do this so please dont rub it in just help PLEASE!!!

Doing burnouts in a Caddy is awesome, i do them in my '92 Sedan deVille, just hope nothing in the drivetrain goes after your warranty ends. I've done several good ones, and my tranny is still good

umm i am not sure, i have never driven an ETC before, on your original post, it says that you "turned the T/C on" i dont know if you meant to turn it off, but if you didnt, it would probably work if it was off. I dont know if its the same type of setup on an ETC and a Mark VIII, but when i drove a Mark VIII, you could turn the traction control off and get smoke.

What happens if you turn the T/C off and just floor it without holding the E-Brake?

Yeah, i just figured that might be triggered by holding the e-brake though.

Naw the way the car compinsates when the traction is disabled is by disallowing the use of 1st gear

Try shifting into 1 instead of D. I have to doublecheck this on mine, but I think that picking first gear manually takes priority over the ecu.
It should be able to spin the wheels if you bring the rpms a bit by power braking even in secend, but that's really hard on the brakes. I hope someone can clear up wheter pulling the abs fuse while it's running gives you 1st with no traction contro, I'll have to try it sometime.

By the way there's few thing I hate more then ricers. I always make fun of them whenever I can. Like this one time I stopped next to an old ass civic with a giant wing, so I stick myself out the window and point at his wing laughing so everyone can hear it. :lildevil: You should have seen how pissed he was. I'm ready to go, but this guy drives off on a red light trying to avoid getting his ass handed to him. I wouldn't take shit from any ricer even if I find one that is actually fast (sti or evo comes to mind), I'll just come back on my yamaha and make him look like hes standing still.

I'm suprised they can even go burnouts in a civic (or whatever economy car theyre trying to hop up.) I bet they have to let go with some nitrous to get them spinning. lol But seriously just call them out for a race.

With the shifter in First, it will still only give you second. The only real way to do it, that I have seen is a method devoloped by one of the members here and his friend. It involves usings 4 1k Ohm resistors in place of the four ABS sensors to trick the computer into not turning on ABS or T/C. They built a a circuit board with some parts that would go inbetween the four sensor wires and the PCM and had a switch wired to it. He hasn't posted the plans for it yet, but there isn't much involved in building it. If you want, you can just go and get 4 1k ohm resistors and plug them into the connectors for each ABS sensor. Then just tie them back so they don't get caught on anything. As long as you reconnect the sensors before you go out driving anywhere, you should be fine.
