Depends on tires. Slicks/drag radials I go through the water box. Street tires I go around. No point in doing a burnout on street tires though.

You have everything coded out? What kind of tires are you on. My burnouts aren't great either but definately need ebrake up to stay still long enough to heat up the slicks decently.

Short press on the TC button, or are you holding it?

I find it all depends how good the track prep is.

I also had a hard time doing a burnout because the track was really sticky. Basically, the handbrake wasn’t holding the car back.

I have everything coded off (ESC fully off)

I've already figured that out with some clients. You unplug the Ebrake sensor under the center console and you can do burnouts no problem.

Can if be unplugged for long term? Will it pop up a dash light or mess with daytime running lights?
