I'm hoping this was my issue may help someone else.I did pull the fuses went from 123 to 128 mph so it helped ,but the major hold back was torque management. If I get the throttle fixed it should fly!

Yes even when the switch is off mine still activated, so pulling these it can't use the brakes when you are spinning.

My last race of last year when I went to do my burn out it bogged bad and stalled like I had it in 4th gear it was in second like I have always started them but traction control was off. Was this abs the problem that made me look like a idiot! Lol

Don't mean to highjack thread but my issue might be related. Just bought a l99 with 600+whp a month ago and I've tried to power brake a couple of times but the car won't do it. It just wants to go. I also tried launching with it and it just stays spinning so the car is fine. Could pulling the fuses fix my issue. I tried this with the tc off by the way

Yes sir it was off. That's what I'm asking if I need to pull the fuses. It's like the brakes can't hold the car on the spot. It just takes off. Wondering if its a abs issue

Don't get me wrong it spins them hard when I try to launch. But I can't seem to be able to warm up my tires

-At the track I back into the water box, then pull forward. I don't do dry burnouts it's hard on a stock differential.
-I put the trans in sport mode, and start in M2 and go into M3.
-I put it back in regular mode for the pass.
-If you let it shift itself, and you make 600rwhp, it's not a problem really to burn out but if you were only making 380rwhp the trans will buzz throug the gears and lug in 4th or 5th gear.

Me doing burnout. You can hear the ABS pulse a bit towards the end of the burnout in my car:
