+ - Muscle Car Tech: New Ford Mustang May Have "Burnout" Button->

Submitted by cartechboy
cartechboy (2660665) writes "Rev the engine, side step the clutch, and watch the tires smoke. That's how car burnouts have been done for decades--the better part of a century, really--but Ford has decided to take the burnout into the 21st century for the new 2015 Mustang. The Mustang's new 'electronic' burnout system is intended to enable perfect burnouts every time, much like launch control has made it easier to accelerate quickly from a stop. So think of every new Mustang with a bright red "burnout" button. While the details on how the burnout control system will work remain secret, it's possible that a combination of the features used in a typical launch control system, including traction and rev-limiting controls, together with a front brake locking system, could enable Ford to pull together existing technology in a completely new way. So far Ford has no comment."
