Are you turning traction control off? Auto or manual?

Hold the traction button down for 8 seconds.

At least this is what I do with a manual.

gotta hold down the traction button for 8-10 seconds until you see 2 red lights on the dash.. This turns off both traction and stability controls. Then you can powerbreak.

You only need to tap the traction control button once, holding it for 8 sec also works but is mainly if you want to drift. tap it twice and the rev limiter is still set at 1k rpm.

If you want to burn out w/o holding the brake in the auto, you need to tune out some of the torque management, or wait till the tires and air temp are closer to 40 degrees.
