man i dont own a TDI but i know theres no way they are offering TCS in your TDI ... the vRS doesnt have TCS either .. so burn your tire as much as you want

hyundai tuscon has one. not sure of vRS. maybe the new vRS will have it.

and since we are talking about TCS, does FrontWD cars or just RearWD cars have those? or is it just for FOUR Wheel Drive vehicles?

@jk- any car can have a traction control system; no limitations with respect to the drivetrain layout.

Automatic tyre burn is possible. Put in drive. Sqeeze the brake hard and floor the gas pedal. After that all you need to do is lift of the brake and watch your tyres smoke

Like a few have said, there is no Traction Control System (TCS) on the vRS... Hope you don't mean Cruise Control??

Another way some ppl suggest of gettin a wheelspin in an automatic car is to put it in neutral, rev hard and suddenly shift into D. But then this should be very hard on the gearbox.

Guys, its easier to get a burn-out done in an automatic car than in a manual rite??? Any info on that

Now i present the simplest way to burn tyres...

Kerosene oil.. Rs. 20

Matchstick.. Rs. 2

Tyre Burn.. PRICELESS..

Not tyre burn, wheelspin or a burn-out would be the right word..
