This is a discussion on V6 Burnout? within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; Do you have a rocker switch above the radio that says "TCS"? If so then you have to turn it ...

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Do you have a rocker switch above the radio that says "TCS"? If so then you have to turn it off (it's automatically in the ON position) after you start the car in order for the computer to not fight you when you attempt a burnout. TCS (Traction Control System) will attempt to keep the rear wheels from spinning when it's on. It was an option so your car may or may not have it. If it does you'll not be able to spin the tires with it in the ON position. You'll feel it pushing back against the throttle.

    On a Camaro it's called ASR (Automatic Slip Regulation) but it's the same thing. My 98 has it while my 02 doesn't.

    Our cars are pretty lite in the ass end (always have been from day 1) and even a 6 should have no trouble spinning the wheels.

    2000 and up "fly by wire" (f-body) 3800II ASR, also controls the throttle (or fuel delivery), all 4 brakes, and tranny.. This is just to point out also that there will be no "feedback" from the throttle in fly by wire systems..

    I have a 02 Y87 and I have no problems doing burnout's on dry pavement. You may want to look at your car or give it a tuneup or something because it should be able to do one no prob.

    my old boss had a red 99 firebird he swore along with all the employees that it was a formua V6 also..and i can not find anything that proves either side..i was curious to what the hell this was aboot.


    hold brake pedal, give some gas, ease off brake so the car jerks forward, mash gas, mash brake pedal.
