How can you heat up the rear tires? The car automatically goes into launch mode when depressing the brake pedal and the accelerator and won't allow the rear wheels to spin.

Why do I have a feeling this thread doesn't end well.

Just a s quick FYI.


Pressing the center button once, turns the traction control off. You can now do a burn out.

If you want traction control and stabilitrack off completely, the only way to do that is hold that same button down till both traction control and stabilitrack light illuminate(roughly 5 seconds). Pressing the center button twice does not accomplish the same thing. If you press it twice, you won't be able to do a burnout.


Hope this help.

You donít need to push the brakes that hard, if youíre entering launch mode, youíve gone too far.
Put it in sport
Hold the center console button till you see TC and Stabilitrak off
Pull the shifter back into manual mode
I have the car at a stop, lift the brakes slightly so the car lurches getting the weight off, and apply the gas to about 5k RPMSs as you reapply just enough to stop the car and hold 2-3s for street tires, 4-5 for radials
Let off the brakes and the gas as you roll out of it a little
You should now be ready
