if someone wants to da a burnout and their having trouble (at the drags of course) it was just a suggestion.
I don't have to do it - I've got a big six under the bonnet!
Probably should only have to wipe grease on tyres with a Daewoo Matiz Auto.
I just thought peeps were having a lot of troubles doing burnouts - I was just trying to help o.k

minux,
peeps are havin trouble doin' burnouts at the drags.
I DO NOT INVOLVE MYSELF IN ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES SUCH AS "HOONING" I.E BURNOUTS ON PUBLIC ROADS, DOING A BURNOUT AT A BURNOUT COMP OR DRAGWAY IS PEFECTLY LEGAL.

as long a people don't start talking about doing burnouts on public roads, posting pictures of such etc, theres absolutly nothing wrong with it...

don't ask me why people like doing burnouts. my wife doesn't understand either.

Garth explained to me when I first joined forum about JC policies when it comes to condoning, talking about, or posting pics of illegal activities....

What happened to the days when you would drive down any back road and see big twin tracks of rubber snaking up the road for hundreds of meters where the local bush boys had been having a test and tune day in their GT's : ), you don't see that much anymore

Why would you want remove IRS alright maybe causes trye problems but with work it can be fixxed as far as your burnouts go ive seen non IRS late model coms that cant do them. Get one car with out IRS one with both with same modified suspension and see which one wins every time

VY Berlina 3.8L
i have taken my dads vy acclaim out on a few occassions, its got an lsd, obviously abs, and irs, it spins up easy as on the standstill, just gotta remember to take traction off otherwise she stops after like .5 of a sec of spinning... i dunno why ppl have problems doing a burnout/line lockie, cause its only a v6 and does it so easy, i reckon it could just be the drivers, no offence, you just gotta leanr how much brake and how much accelerator... thats my input for the day fella's

VY Exec 3.8L Sedan 9C1 Pack
late model commies without IRS? pretty sure this is standard on ALL post 1999 commodores now (except wagons I think)

I have only been able to arc up my VY once... and that is with 8" wide 245's... Standard 6 banger, ABS, IRS etc... dual lines all the way down the street, errr, drag strip... I have yet to repeat the performance, don't think the girl wants to do it agian, I'm flat out now getting anything round a corner, very happy with the handling in that respect, makes it easier to go hard when you know traction is going to hold. :)

Traction control has to be off obviously, and I didn't think ABS would make a difference. But there's people saying here "Red-line it" .. I can't, don't know about anyone else. But when any brake is applied at all, the maximum revs sits at 2,500. I've tried all different combinations of brake and accelerator, and it either squats and won't move, or launches. Have to be on very uneven ground for it to spin even a little.

i still dont know why people have troubles doing a stand still, i dont do anything special in my dads acclaim, all i have to do is take off the traction control and she spins up doing a line lockie at the strips... just too easy

To the comment about VXs not spinning past 2500 said:
My VS wont spin past 2500 either, when I did take the abs fuse out and got it spinning, it sat on 2500 for about 3-5 secs then bango up to redline and had to feather it... Mine wont spin on the spot all the time either, Iv only tryed it once WITHOUT the abs and seemed to work good... with the abs on.. she's a no go... :S
