Alright so I got a M3 with a 5 speed manual in it. When i drop the clutch from 5000 or 6000 or whatever and spin the tires it throws me back in my seat. But as soon as the wheels quit spinnin the engine kinda kills off, like it's got traction contol or something. But i've done it with the ASC on and the ASC off and it still does the same thing. Any Ideas what it might be?

That bog down is your transmission goin "FUUUUUUCK OWWWWWW STOP THAT" and the engine goes "Damn dawg sorry..." You shouldn't be doing that, so nobody knows.

You do NOT want to have the tranny pulled out and repaired. Expensive.

Tires arn't cheep dude, I had to spring 400$ when 3 of my tires were slashed. For the cheepest kind too! I shouldn't be speaking since I autocross all the time..... on public roads.

BE NICE TO YOUR TRANSMISSION. You will wish you listened to us when it starts slipping... or goes out with a bang in the middle of nowhere or on a highway.

Nothing wrong with dropping the clutch from 5000 or 6000 when you want to make a fast start.

But I would be answering your question, ASC is Stability Control and not Traction Control. Only traction control regulates the rear wheelspin when it's set!

Traction Control is a part of ASC. With out TC there is no ASC. In newer cars, there is DSC which is just more complex ASC.

You are an idiot if you drop the clutch from that high. That is gonna give you a horrible start, you will just light up the tires and bog down. For a fast start you wanta a point where you get a little chirp and you are in the powerband quickly.

You're confused.. TC doesn't give you a better launch when you spin the wheels. It actually slows the car down and makes you even slower. Instead of putting more power to the wheels, it reduces power, also reducing wheel spin. If you launch the car with the TC on, you won't even be able to spin the wheels.

What you are probably thinking of is called "launch control" you hit a certain RPM flip the switch and drop the clutch. What launch control does is keeps the RPM's constant and never lets it drop below the RPM that you set. When you feel the tires hook, you turn off launch control and you have yourself a perfect launch. It's not good for the car, but no way in hell does TC or DSC make you launch better.

Again, another perfect example of misinformation...

Launch control is very very rare. Not many cars have them, factory or non factory. Usually people use high stall torque convertor to keep the RPM's high. In manual cars, you really don't need that bullshit. LEARN to drive as I say.
