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
