Competition mode?

Just was playing with buttons and Competitive Mode came on. Was playing with traction control button. What does this mean and do all them have it? And what does this do? Was so shocked to see that on dash. Sorry it's 2007 Pontiac Solstice GXP. Thank you.

Press the traction button once and you turn off traction control, press twice and you enter 'Competition' mode. Press and hold the button seconds if I recall, to turn off traction control and stability control.

Competition mode turns off traction control and changes how stabilitrack functions if I remember right. Should all be in the owner's manual, which is outside in the car, and I am watching the stove while I make dinner.

Driving and working on a Sly 2008 Solstice GXP 5spd 260/260, and the worst-built 2012 LS3 Camaro 1SS to escape from Oshawa.

Gone but not forgotten:
2007 Solstice GXP 5 speed 290/340

Stored and needing to part ways with a 1970 Skylark Custom convertible I have owned since 1989 and turned into a GS455 clone. 462 with 7/8 primary headers, adjustable roller rockers, TA Performance Stage 1 aluminum heads, auto, Chevy 12 bolt, 3.31:1. Sadly a project car now but a driver from '89 to '06.

For future reference, there is a search area in the upper right corner. This has been discussed many times before and answers to this can be easily found in that search area.

Use the Google Search, it works better that the forum search.

Have fun!

Actually, the best search is "Advanced Search" in the "Tools" drop-down.

All the GXP have it and some of the N/A do. Comp mode what it does if the tire slip it WONT cut engine power down some and apply the brakes some. Its advantage for a drag race the launch with a stick. You have to spin the tires some to launch a stick strong and would be a learned skill. With an auto not that important as the torque converter will let it rev a little if you happen to hook to good.

If you happen to mod your car too much,in Comp mode it may try to brake the tires loose before you hit redline in 1st gear while your rolling. Stability left on would probly help in that condition. As far as turning farther off that would be for a road coarse and you would really really know how to drive
