    Very true but remember in the eyes of the "expert road safety dickheads" everyone drives their 250km/h car at 250km/h all the time just because it can do it so there if there is a burnout capability then drivers with do a burn out every single time thy start.

    Whats wrong with doing burnouts the old fashioned way?

    Chances are its just been disabled in ECU firmware and switch blanks put over the switch, I'm sure the brains trust at SCT will figure out a way to enable it again.

    like how scruby thought their would be multitudes of 'hoons' all making their way to the NT to test their cars when the speed limit was removed. like some people have nothing better do than drive 1000's of km just to go a bit faster legally!!

    You will note that neither scrooby nor any of the other usual suspects have made the slightest noise about the open zone as it contradicts everything they stand for.

    Seems people even need gizmos and help doing burnouts...

    Just like reverse parking a car by yourself heal and toe is a thing of the past..

    It's only got 300 kws. It needs all the help it can get.
