You don't need to turn it off fully, Just push the ESP button(traction control off) and you got enough power, mash the pedal. Do you know how to do a burnout that's the question?

If that's not enough for you, you could try Dyno mode; turns off traction 100%. Use search to find out how, idk exactly how to do it. Friend with a w203 used to go dyno mode all the time and just peel out everywhere! But be wary, you don't get ABS either, along with some other things...

edit: here's a quick youtube vid i found, from this thread lol

If you read my question carfully I wrote Traction control 100% off! My Operator's Manual says "If one or more wheels are spinning, the ESP Traction control brakes a spinning wheel even when ESP is deactivated".

First, you're new here. Take it easy with the attitude.
Second, a burnout is fully possible even with the ESP partially deactivated (i.e. pressing the button once)
Third, to fully deactivate it, you have to use dyno mode. However, when in dyno mode, you will lose ESP, ABS, BAS, and power steering.

There's no need for dyno mode because you can generate the same results burn out with ESP button. The post earlier shows how to do it. Just be careful driving with it.

You hold the Brakes and push the throttle and let the tires spin then once they begin spinning you can let off the brakes or keep holding it and mash the throttle and you'll continue to do a burnout . ETC or some variation you can search on the forums plenty of guides. But you got enough power on the 55 to just mash it and it will spin the tires from standstill forget about the brake lol.

Even with the ESP off the car will still have a rough time breaking them loose. Pushing the brake and the gas together cuts the engine torque. I know this because I forgot to plug in the ABS cable, erroring out the BAS, ABS and ESP.The car had full power. Flooring the car off the line resulted in sideways action. Doing a brake stand was just crazy. I just barley tried and the tires would break loose very easy. I didn't smoke them out or anything (Really don't want trans trouble or bald 255's). Even with ESP off, it's still limits tirespin somewhat.

I disagree. With ESP off, from a stop, pedal to the metal in an S550 made the tires spin and spin until I took my foot off (at least 5 seconds, also with no brakes being used). I'm sure it'll be even easier in an S55.
