Available Adjustments and How to Make them:

All adjustments for burnout mode must be done in the Accesstuner Pro software.  They can be found under the "Burnout" folder in the "RPM Features" section of the "COBB custom features" folder.

  • Burnout Mode Exit Speed
    • This is the maximum amount of speed the vehicle is allowed before exiting burnout mode.  Once the undriven wheel speed reaches the exit speed OR the burnout button is no longer held burnout mode will deactivate and standard limiters will be active.
  • Burnout Mode Rev Limit
    • Once the RPM in this setting is reached the engine will be limited via fuel or throttle cut.
  • Configure Burnout Mode (Base)
    • This setting activates the use of Burnout Mode. 0=Disabled, 1=Enabled
  • Configure Burnout Mode (Strategy)
    • This selects between the type of RPM limiting used in burnout mode.  Throttle cut is less abusive than fuel cut and cause less wear and tear.  Fuel cut allows for boost and puts more power into the tires in the event that you have problems getting the tires to spin.


Things To Look Out For:
