I am quite certain I could burn the V6 easily.....but am quite certain I never will. Even when my V8 gets here, I won't burn them either. I get on my V6 on the time but I don't won't to burn them. Man, I never realized how high these tires were. Heck I thought my Yukon tires were expensive lol

Ah. They way you presented it, one would not expect stock tires on a 108hp Hyundai.

No, actually I think most of the difference comes from the fact that I have a stick - and being able to control the clutch makes spinning the tires a LOT easier.
That would definitely make a big difference. The V6 manual Camaro can probably lay 100 yards of stripe...

My 170hp manual VW can probably burn off tires all day long. If traction control is off I don't even have to take off hard to burn rubber.

!LOL! I could manage to get mine to do it as well, a nice clutch pop and that little 3 cylinder sewing machine could spin the tires for a little bit.

My brother had an auto swift (pretty much the same as a metro).

He once spun (chirped, really) the tires trying to take off on a hill, and was ecstatic (this was during the time that I was driving the IROC). I told him it didn't count.

So people are saying its possible but they apparently aren't talking about an auto. Ok I guess you can't do it in the auto v6.

Would you guys recommend leaving traction control off everytime I drive it or should I keep it on sometimes.

Depends how ofter you want to replace your tires ...... Don't forget if you have the RS package you can't rotate front to rear.

It also seems just the younger crew are concerned about lighting up the rear, it looks cool but a waste of time and speed . The object is not to spin the back tires. If you really are bent on smoking the rears, put it in M and brake torque it to get them spinning.

Turn it off at the track...use it all the time on roads. If you're doing anything that works better with traction control off then it's probably something that shouldn't be done on public roads.
