Camaro SS Burnout Questions

Iíve had my SS almost a full year next month, Iíve never done a full out burnout sorry if itís a common dumb question. Iíve done a burnout from accelerating with TC off from a red light, my issue is when I try to power brake burnout the car just jerks forward violently, idk if Iím doing something wrong or the brakes can not handle the power? I know burnouts are childish but Iíve always had audiĒs as my cars and their AWD so Iíve never had the chance for a burnout so Iím just itching to do a real one! Thank you!

Dude, don't feel bad. I have had my car 5 years, am full bolt on and cammed, and still haven't done a stationary smokey burnout.

I just can't bring myself to do it. Between the cost of tires and the guilt of 'abusing' my baby, I am not sure I will ever grow a real pair. Shit, I pat my car and apologize when I bring her over 6k rpm.



BTW, has anyone seen my man card? I think I lost it somewhere.

Guess weíre on the same page. I just find no reason to do something that has been done a kajillion times by somebody else and serves no other purpose than to say you can do it. Plus, with my luck, Iíd probably throw an axle or some other costly mishap.
Takes just as much balls to be smart as it does to throw caution to the wind.

I don't do stationary burnouts, but I like to do donuts when I'm going to replace the rear tires. Hooligan without guilt.

I also haven't done a burnout...
I accelerate pretty strong when I can, sometimes spinning the tires a little, but have not really tried making any smoke in 7 years! Just can't bring myself to abuse my pride and joy like that!
I told that to a co-worker that once, and he said "Oh, so it's all cartooned up then?"
I don't think it's quite that bad, but I'm happy with what I have and want to keep it perfect as long as possible.

Have you tried holding the traction control button for 7-10 seconds until all of the "nannies" turn off then so a burnout? Also, if you're stock and in an automatic GM is kind of lame about their restrictions to keep you from a burnout. You're best to get the car slightly rolling then hit both pedals so you get a screen shot and start smoking the tires. (BTW, the screen shot thing is a joke. Don't take me too literally. )

Hold the button down in front of the shifter for about 7 seconds. Both yellow lights will illuminate. This turns off TC and stabilitrac. Perhaps you just turned off TC and stabilitrac is activating. Manual or auto?

I ease into stomping the pedal so as to not shock the drivetrain and break axles/driveshaft/rear end, etc.
I learned real quick NOT to take T/C off, either partially or fully off, when nailing the throttle WHEN ANY OTHER CARS OR PEOPLE ARE AROUND. Just watch some Mustang videos of assorted idiots.
Scarier yet is power shifting under boost (6sp trans) - you can get sideways or swap ends in a hurry. Been there, and loaded my shorts a few times

At the track I stopped doing burn outs. I noticed that my ETs were the same with or without a burn out. This is the same for the GN and the 2SS. I did learn when I did the burn out with the GN that Buick had not installed the posi=traction rear. My friend pointed out that I was burning only one tire. So I installed a new rear end but stopped burn outs anyway.

Like said above, turn off both traction control and stabilitrac (hold traction control button down).

All the nannies off is the trick, my SS is mostly stock and automatic... he’s a causal smoker from time to time. Mine will power brake with out any real effort at all honestly.
