          I will not be using burn-out mode but maybe L/C a few times.

            Launch Control with a DCT is fun

              I think the tester has to look back at Hellcat videos to see what a REAL smoky burnout looks like. lol

                Sorry but that isn't a burnout. Have to get the CTS-V Caddy for a burnout.

                  I might use burnout mode when it's time to buy new tires anyway. Otherwise, not interested in wearing out my tires prematurely.

                    Whenever I feel the need to do a burnout I will just flip on YouTube and that will save me thousands of dollars.

                    Burnouts are cool when someone else is doing them.

                      I like a little forward/sideways motion with my burnouts. Sitting in one spot burning money is not my thing.

                        Cheaper and better to just take a lap or two to heat the tires.

                          Yes, but hard to "take a lap" on a drag strip, which is what I think this is intended for.

                            meyerweb that's the whole point. This car is not capable of doing a burnout. The engine placement and under 500hp simply won't allow it. Not that there is anything wrong with that. It's still a spectacular vehicle. It also has the platform for some obnoxious enhancements for sure.

                              I'm impressed by the certainty. "not capable"? Or did the programmers also set limits on this mode? Sure sounds like it.
