I dont know if you can burn out in the titan, that vdc (traction controlle thing) or what ever it is called might not allow it.?.?.?

Just shut the VDC off and let her rip........ :cheers: I've been able to get both to spin but usually it's just one. It depends a lot on how the weight of the truck is, like uphill is your best bet for getting both to spin. If your tilted downhill than one is the norm.....

no, it's shut-off when you turn off the VDC. I'm not familiar with how the limited slip works with trucks without VDC. I think with the big tow package they have the active brake limited slip but don't know if it can be shut-off.

I couldn't burn rubber. Is it because I have 18" wheels or is it because I'm not "power braking" it.

You could try putting a little brake to it but I'm surprised you can't without it. Ummmmm, don't know what to tell you if yours won't boil the tires off it. Wait a little longer until the engine loosens up a bit, I'm sure it will then.

I'm suprised at not being able to do it with the 18's. maybe your doing it and not knowing it. Cause i've done it quite a few times not on purpose with my 22's and they were making a zipping sound instead of what im used to from my max which was cherping. I gotta be carefull on the 22's,shorter tread life so if i do it to many times and i'll be needing new tires again.

I Cant believe my ears, there is actually people saying they can't, or the titan can't burn rubber, well I beg to differ, mine will straight up light them up, there are a few f-150's, hemi's and some silverado's that got to witness it from seeing the rear of the titan. This thing is just awesome, and hell it is a automatic !!!!!!!!!!

VDC is Vehicle Dynamic Control

It, along with the ABLS, is computer 'corrections' to help a driver in loss of traction scenarios etc etc.

There is a button to turn off the VDC on the middle of the console toward the bottom.

The VDC in general is outstanding. If you want to light'em up, turn it off. Otherwise I leave it on. I came to work today thru a 1/2" of slush/ice and thru Flashflood standing water (Philly) - IN TWO wheel drive. I may never tow a thing, but bought the package for VDC. I would not go without it.

see the thing is if you dont get the tow package you have no way of turning off the active brake limited slip, right?

I'm not even sure if that turns off - if you disengage the VDC?

Owners Manual - page 5-29

"The ABLS (active brake limited slip) system and ABS will still operate with the VDC system OFF"

and so, the ABLS (standard on 4X4's) is ON period. :rolleyes:

Last night I went out and played. When I turn off the VDC I could not get the "Slip" light to come on while getting on it.

there might be a fuse you can pull for the ABLS

things are more complex these days I know but I just
used to pull the ABS fuse on my '92 SE-R when I took it auto-crossing
