lets talk about burn outs ...?

Ok... just consider me burn out stupid for this conversation. Because i know its hard to believe but i have not smoked the tires on my ZL1 yet... i did say yet.
What is a line lock ? I here people talk about them wile talking about smoking the tires but i have no idea what one is . When you smock the tires do you put your foot on the break ? and will you go side ways if you don't ? ... When you wont to heat up your tires before a race . Is it best to put your foot on the break ? lets talk ...

Line lock locks the breaks on the front so you can spin your tires in place without destroying your rear breaks/rotors/bearings(through heat)

What's the best mode to smoke your tires in? Or just turn all the nannies off?

Turn them all off. A line lock as said above locks front brakes on so you can easily so a burnout. If it's auto lots of people just do brake stands, which is hold brakes on and over power it with accelerator. Then just let off the brake and you peel ahead

Why do you need to hold the TC button for 15 seconds?

The owners manual explains all about traction control and such. Trust me, it's NOT hard to spin the tires with 580 on tap

Be careful if you turn all the nannies off. If you decide to do a full three gear burnout, stability control can save your ass. Ask me how I know.
I am leaving stability control on from now on.

Yes, one tap to turn off the traction control is all you need.

If you want to be able to do some good burnouts without wearing out brake components you need to invest in a line lock kit. I have the Hurst line lock which is specific for 5th gen camaros. In addition to the LL kit I have a something called a switchlink which let's you use one of the steering wheel switch to activate line lock. I really like the switchlink, it works great and is very stealth. Otherwise if you don't have the switchlink The LL kit comes with a switch that you have to mount which IMO looks cheap. Switchlink is well worth it and not expensive and fairly easy to install.

line locks are cheap enough - just buy one and install it (or have it installed).
turn off the traction control

and use just a little water for added smoke and ease to get the tires going

No need to beat on the car any harder than you have too

Id also do it in 2nd gear


If you dont want to buy the line lock - rev it up, dump the clutch, keep right foot on the gas and quickly move your left foot over on the brake. Now you are like an auto
