Curious, since I'm jealous of older Volvo's being able to smoke their tires, what mods would our R's need to create some smoke screens in the parking lot? I've turned off the DSTC and never get more than a chirp out of the tires.

Re: Smoke 'em if you got 'em boys (vLGrok)

It's an AWD vehicle so unless you disconnect the Haldex (or burn it up), no smoking in an R. Losing traction doesn't make a lot of sense in an AWD vehicle......does it?

Or if it's an auto, can you hold the car with the brake while building sufficient revs to let loose? The again, just put on bald tires and have at it.

Re: (JRL)

Well damn, unplug AWD and its FWD? Sucky, not what I wanted at all. Kills that idea. Thanks for reply though.

Re: Smoke 'em if you got 'em boys (vLGrok)

To smoke the front tires, you could pull the emergency brake up one click. It won't engage but it will disable haldex and put you in FWD only.
