    OK...so this may sound like a dummy question.

    Mine will not let me do a burnout. I click her in full track mode and ppunch it and the engine will roast the wheels, then TC interfears and cuts engine power. What gives?! No problem lighing them up, but keeping them spinning is another matter. Seems no matter what I do, the TC wants to come on at some point....

    Hold the TC button down for 5 sec. This will disable the TC. (It's in the owners manual

    Not too tough. There's just a lot of out-of-work comedians with nothing else to do!!

    You can also put in Sport, that should allow you to do good burnouts, but save if you you get too squirly

    In one video, a fellow from SRT said the car actually has less traction control intrusion in Sport mode than it does in Track mode. But, if you take traction control off completely, then you maximize the amount of 'black carpet' that rolls out behind your hides as you depart!

    Track actually reduces rear wheel spin, and is set up not for drag strip, but race track (with turns).

    So if you are hitting the mountain twisties, and are feeling froggy, my assumption is track is the way to go (annoying as a daily driver in auto mode).

    If you are on the street and want to be in "the zone" "sport" is the way to go as it is comfortable but holds shifts back a little, and will thump you on a shift now and again. Also allows more tire slippage before electronic salvation. I believe this is the best dragstrip setup, with maybe the trans set to "track" for fastest shifts?

    I like "sport" with "street" suspension or full "street" for just cruising.

    Track traction seems to work best now until the streets heat up a little up north here, we still need computer help. 45 degrees last evening I was able to get a 4 second 0-60. Took the ESP totally off as well as trying street traction this past week.... Too much wheel spin both times. I could tell the computer does amazing things for us however!

    I find that the trans in street mode is downright annoying. I keep engine in 700/trans in sport/susp in street. I LOVE the rev matching and the fact it always keeps you hovering around 2K RPM.

    My 0-60 timer in the above setup was 4.2 yesterday. 45 degrees or so outside, two 200 lb dudes in car, summer tires with no burnout prior. Definite ESP intervention at launch.

    This cars power & intelligence is utterly amazing, I will do a driveshaft probably if troubles keep coming up, and maybe some drag radials but im on the fence about tunes sofar. I do VERY much like having a warranty.............maybe a driveshaft is even out of the question.......

    Totally undecided at this point, I know how the fever goes....once you start modding.......:-O
