Not sure. You should be able to spin em relatively easy in my opinion. Maybe its the Torque management.

Try this:

Turn off all the nannies as you have done....put the car in manual mode/1st gear (if you are an auto). Take off at a very slow speed (so the transmission is engaged). Stomp on it. Yes I know this isn't like spining the tires from a dig, but its just a test.

I can do it either way....and even rolling in first I'm pretty sure I can break em loose at around 10 - 15 mph or so just be stabbing the throttle.

Mine has auto trans and with the upgrades I threw in it, it still won't break the tires loose on bare tar. But if I start from where there is a little sand it will get them turning but it is short lived. It digs in and goes.

I've got the 2013 V6 stock in manual and I dont seem to have any trouble getting the tires lose or the back end for that matter...

Make sure you hold that traction control button down until the stability control pops off as well.

I find it hard to believe that with trac control and stability assist off you can't just put the break down a tab and the gas to the floor and watch em smoke...
Someone check me on that but my tundra (5.7L V8 auto) does it with ease...

Sticks have no issue, but us Auto guys do...Even with all my mods its a rare deal. However after this week i dont think it will be a problem as 3.73 gears are going in.

Myself, I have never tried a power/brake burnout yet. It just would look cool because the autos doesn't come with limited slip. Water isn't a problem to get them going. Even more fun in snow/ice when the nannies are off.
