    I'm trying to do power brake burnouts with my automatic trans at the drag strip to warm the tires and it's not wanting to spin much. I don't know if I'm not holding the gas long enough, pushing on the brake to hard or something else.
    Traction control is off and I have tried in drive and in manual. It will spin some but bogs down and wont get the rpms up. I have seen the videos of what this car can do, so what am I doing wrong?

    Are you sure you don't have stability control on?

    Traction and Stability control are two different things.
    If stability control is still on and your back end starts to swing early during your burnout, stability control will kick in and put a stop to it.

    He's totally right! You need to lose all control

    Yes, thanks. I re-read the manual. I had it in track mode and didnt turn it off completely. The icon confused me.
    What is the best launch? Track, sport or off? Best i have done is 3.5sec 0-60 and 11.5 quarter in track.

    You didn't mention what mode you're in. The sport traction mode will allow you to do a big smokey a block long if you want. Track mode is for the road course and still applies some forward traction control so you don't want that. You can also turn esp completely off by holding the SRT button for several seconds. Also, how much are you pushing on the brake? Too much brake pressure can keep the wheels from turning.

    You only want to warm the tires up if you're running drag tires. They are made of a compound that gets stickier when hot. Street tires are a different compound and will actually lose grip if too hot. You should only do a short peel out to clean debris from off the tires.

    ^^^^^^^^ I was just about to say the same. Track is for road, actually has more traction control built into it, Sport is for burnout, drag racing etc.

    MoparPhil I think you got a typo there as you have SUSPENSION typed and you mean TRACTION set to sport

    Thanks, Good catch! Yes, I meant traction. I edited the post. Suspension should be on street for drag racing to allow for more weight transfer to the rear.

    Back to the original question, what is the best way to get a nice burn w/ a M6...just for fun not at the track. Learned from a bunch of people on the forum not to use the water box or heat the street tires at the track. Great advice.

    If your talking about a rolling burnout simply put it in Sport traction mode and pop the clutch. Power shift into 2nd and keep on frying the tires down the block. If you're talking about a standing burnout you have to use a right foot heel and toe on the brake and throttle pedals. However, you'll need a line lock or you'll kill your rear brake pads and warp the rotors if you sit there too long or do it too frequently.

    OK I see. TC and SC are EVERYTHING. With TC off, I did a 0 mph stomp and smoked the tires almost through the whole 0 to 60. Hard to keep under control without computer help. But What Fun!! No more problems doing burnouts, except for keeping control.

    Thanks. I got the rolling down it was the standing. Not good at the heel/toe thing.

    Does any vendor make a line lock for the HC?

    i had no idea what i was doing for the track burnout either...i had mine in track thinking it had less TC....i had no issues getting them spinning, but it wouldnt do a big smokey burnout....i couldnt figure it out at the time....i had my foot stomped down on the brake all the way and floored it....i got it to spin decent each time, just not a crazy burnout.....i thought 0 TC on track and sport......my dash says its off
