Hopefully, you all realize this is a 5 year old thread. Thinking the original poster is long gone.

If you want a well thought out answer, ask a well thought out question. GIGO!
Um, around here we try to avoid busting peoples chops. Just saying, ya know? :cheers:

1. Open the hood.
2. Remove the cover for the lid that covers the Master Brake Cylinder
3. Disconnect the ABS pump (which also controls TCS/VDC)
4. Do a burnout
5. ?
6. Profit (by $200, apparently)


On the cars with TCS there's only one giant connecter to disconnect. For the cars with VDC, it's a little more complex but the theory still holds. I'm not sure which one to disconnect in that instance.

Curious as to how ABS affects burnouts to begin with??????

Basically this is my understanding of the burnout ins and outs in the Touring 350Zs. The track model Z's are a different thing, and something I know nothing about so wont go there...
No I do not condone burnouts on the street, but on the track etc I say go for it if you can afford the tyres.

If you turn off the TRC, you will still not be able to do a static burnout due to the EBC - electronic brake control, which has something to do with your ABS also.

To enable my car to be able to do this, I simply wired a switch in before my ABS fuse, so that when the switch is off, the fuse isn't getting power, therefore the ABS (and EBC) will not work. NOTE - you will also loose your brake lights if you pull the fuse/turn the switch off.

Now to do said burnout, I flick my switch, ensure TRC is off, select 2nd gear, bring rpms to around 4500 - 5000, side step clutch and quickly move left foot to the brake pedal. Modulating the brake pedal will allow you to creep the car forward or sit on the spot. Very handy for tyre warming burnouts before your 1/4 mile run.

I have used this method a couple of times, and never had any dramas. after the burnout is completed, I flick the switch back and hey presto, everything works as it should.

It's not the ABS specifically, but the EBC that works in conjunction with the ABS. I'm not sure exactly on the witchcraft behind it all, so will let someone for more knowledgable chime in on that on. But the same thing also plays havoc with trail braking on the track apparently, as it basically cuts power to the motor. (Or so I understand from my limited research into the subject.)

Rear wheels spinning at a million miles an hour , front wheels practically stationary, or just crawling along. The ABS computer thinks you've locked the fronts up and reduces the front caliper pressure.

It makes it difficult, if not impossible, to do a static/sitting burnout (or a brake job, depending on what you call it) since you can't control the front brakes.

Aside from monk's suggestion, if you want to do some hardware mods specifically for doing burnouts I think you'd be better off installing a line locker.
