    my car has lsd and it can do burnouts and it being a bt1 i spose it has lsd aswell my guess is to take the abs fuse out and use the brake accelerate method but i still dont kno why it doesnt spin from just accelerating off the line

    left, that way the more powerful right hand wheel will have more pressure, gun it no brakes and feather the accelerator, after a couple of spins it'll step out :)

    yeh m8 i have the same probs. if i boot it of the line...no spin. if i use the brake/accelerate method no spin. the only way if done it is to go on loose land/gravel then ease her onto the road or get spray on cooking oil and grease those tyres :) works a treat but DONT get it on your brakes and make sure you wash it of as soon as ur finished having fun becuase it is highly dnagerous to drive around with greased tyres.

    Most V6 Vs's wont do standies with the simple brake accelerate method, mine wont. from what im told the full lock to the left works, and i know that the old oil on the road trick works as well.....I think it has alot to do with the Electronic box. If you had a s1 Vn you would have no probs, i used to have one and you could spin em with ease. Another method....Although its highly not recomended is you stick it in N and bring the revs up, then slam it back into D without letting go of the revs, as soon as it starts spinning add in a little bit of break, will screw your gear box up fair quick if you do it too often, but if your desperate it will work.......
