Can the V6 smoke em?

I have never tried. I have the V6 A6 and wondered if someone has tried it or if it can even be done? (The tires)

Not on mine - I have the 19 wheels with pzero Nero tires; I can burn em from a dead start with no break. they have about 19,000 miles on them and have plenty of tread above the wear indicator.

In the winter I can get rubber throug part of second....

I thought that this was gonna be another thread about whether or not the V6 had enough power to smoke "x" car

By the looks of it it's possible. I also have a V6 A6, but haven't tried at all. Trying to conserve tires over here

Mikes right, The idea is NOT to smoke them!!! Tires cost far to much and if you spin there goes your run/race.

But is doesn't count unless it's an 8!

Come on, I know someone wanted to say it!

And yes my 6 will light them up in 1st and good part of 2nd. A little clutch dump helps!

Is anyone able to burnout in a V6 A6?

I do not seem to be able to...even riding the brake, the clutch stalls at around 2K, and takeoffs in general are slow.

Does anyone have the ability to do a burnout in their automatics? If so, what are you doing to accomplish this?

Have you disabled the Stabilitrak and TC? You have to hold down the button for a few seconds or else only one of the two will be disabled.
