Won't Burn Out

Anyone try a burn out with their G6? I tried 6 or 7 times today and it won't do it! Just as it starts to do it, the ABS system keeps the front wheels from moving.

are you hitting the brakes and the gas at the same time? try using the ebrake and hitting the gas...that will prevent the ABS from ever kicking in.

That's interesting. ABS isn't designed to work that way - it can't tell the difference between wheel spin and normal forward motion - it only recognizes when the wheels stop moving when they shouldn't.

With my TCS off (light glows on the dash), I can turn the vehicle 90 by lighting up the tires and easing the steering wheel to the right. Of course, since I did that with my wife sitting next to me, I've been "forbidden" from ever doing it again. (the quicker I kill these crappy Conti tires, the quicker I can get some real ones)

I would guess the traction control is kicking in to compensate for the potential loss of traction...........no??

If it's hot out, I think it would be easier to get them to cut loose, but I may be wrong. After break-in, I'll have to see if I turn off TC and Stabilitrac and see if I can get them going in 1st...

It's pretty simple to do.

1. Turn off TC.
2. Yank the hand brke.
3. Foot to the floor.
4. Light them SOBs up!

This worked, as did pulling the fuse for the ABS system, but when I did that I made the dash light and DIC display very mad.
