Don't even have to push the brake that hard. ETC off, press brake, press gas, tires will start spinning slowly, then erupt into smoke. Pretty easy.

I was practicing lauching the car last night. If you STAND on the brakes, the car won't let you rev past 1500rpm. Car still takes off okay, but it won't smoke the tires on launch. Slight hop, slight spin, and off you go. Damn TQ management.

What the hell is a Park burnout? Do you put the car in park and hope it will burnout??? Just playing around last weekend before the car had hit 500 miles even with the ESP turned off it didn't want to spin the tires when you punched the throttle too bad. This thing needs a tune bad!!! Waste of a perfectly good V8 by detuning the crap out of it!

I know...I told the wife about your intake and tune package and she didn't think I should spend the money since we have a baby on the way and other things that we need right now! Maybe next year!

I haven't been able to get the tires to spin either, except once on wet pavement and it was only a slight slip. The car will perch up really nice but the brakes hold tight.

this is what i have found also, the car grips so damn good. which is a good thing racing, but bad thing if you wanna have a little fun and eat up some tires.

Our son turned two months yesterday. What did we do? Go out and buy a 30 thousand dollar car. LOL Don't let a kid hold you down. Tristen enjoys riding in the G8 with his Mommy, don't be fooled!

There's some torque management in my SS but this is REALLY bad.

I can easliy burn rubber in my G8. Turning of the traction button and slammin the throttle always leaves to nice burnout marks. The other night I also test it's 1/4 mile time with my tazzo computer. Leaving it in drive with TC off I got a [email protected] with a 2.2 60' time.

Next week I'm going to the track to get the real numbers. My G8 is as fast as my 04 GTO 6 speed. I was able to burn down the 1/4 mile in [email protected] in my GTO. I'm pretty sure I can get a 13.5-6 easy in this car.
