I don't think that you can disable the traction control in the six cylinder cars... Because the six cylinder engine IS the traction control!

Not every Mustang was equipped with traction control and anti-lock brakes Superdrift. Not even the V8 cars. It was an option. If your car has it there will be a button by the rear window defrost button that says "traction off".
Consider yourself lucky if your car is not equipped with TC/ABS because the system is troublesome.

If you don't have the button for it then I don't think you even have it.

You should be able to do burnouts just fine if you don't have traction control

In the rain it's easy to slide cars with traction control. The challenge is doing it on dry ground.

Little break, lota gas.. you will feel it out
hold the break down start giving it gas let pressure off the break and your smoking your tires.. let go of the break and burn out down the road.
Or just put the pedal into the floor.
Tires are expensive. Burnouts are meant to be done before a race to get the tires sticky.

Shut it off when driving in snow. It's just for rain. Don't think you'll get better traction, You won't. I drive in the snow all the time in the winter.

I've done this method lol with my 6 banger works pretty good a specially if u don't have sticky/grippy tires. If u have a hard compound tire works better. Also yes if u don't got the traction button u don't got traction control
