IMHO, lot of bs flying around. I get a chirp with traction control on and that's it. I agree if you are spinning tires with traction control on then your traction control is not working. Makes sense. You may get some spin on wet pavement for a second if you have an open diff but then traction control will kick in and stop it.

Maybe someone can post their truck doing a burnout with traction control on. Nah, even then I wouldn't believe it.

This is what happens when you leave traction control on you can sit and spin but let go of break and it grips

when I turn off the traction control on dry pavement it doesn,t peel, however the slightest bit of moisture or sand it drives sideways better than straight with 3.92 rear. Now if I find this fuse for t/c, abs and pull it out, is it going to set off a bunch of dummy lights and buzzers?

Default spinning tires

At the price of tires why would anyone want to burn them off. unless you are a tire salesmen. I want them to grip, I'm not going any where when the tires are spinning.

well I`ve got a friend who gets me pretty reasonable prices from a tire warehouse and these stock goodyear tires are junk anywhere but pavement and I didn`t buy a 4x4 to stay on paved roads so they need to be upgraded before fall so I may as well enjoy burning them off, plus it pisses the ford guys off

What a TOTAL waste of tires, transmission, engine longetivy.... and display of what??? Thiis ought to be on a dragstrip video clip. It's really not the sort of thing we expect out of our new RAM 1500's.....if it is, you're in the wrong forum. Sorry, but I don't see the nexus between this video clip and what we're trying to display and project for the Ram 1500. Christ, if I wanted this in my truck I would have gotten a lot bigger engine and a much beefier tranny and posting in a drag forum....and I wouldn't be pulling a boat with it. This is a freakin; UTILITY truck....the sort of truck guys buy to pull a boat, put their work tools in, or just use to go to and from work, maybe a weekend in the boonies, or just to look slick with some basic mods like a miuffler or some body alterations.

What's the purpose behind a burnout except on the dragstrip? 99.9% of the forum members will never see a drag strip with their trucks, and certainly wouldn't go thru a burnout like that one. That's strictly show and tell...try that on the street and look for red and blue lights in your rear view miirror.. There's no data on what mods were on there, what gas you were burning, what rear end you had etc...and lastly, the reason? Lots of smoke............and mirrors....where's the beef? Right church, wrong pew.

best regards,

Grumpy old fart.
