Technically the original systems worked only based on the ABS, but the newer systems also integrate throttle control now that the car is drive by wire and can reduce the engine performance/ throttle response as well to prevent wheel spin after it catches it.

I've still been able to get it to chirp the tires before it catches them at times on wet pavement or going around a corner at low speeds.
