Competitive Mode

Does anyone know if the V6 has competitive mode or something similar? If it does I assume is it only on the manual? I guess the automatic has the paddle shifters but I was wondering if there is the same thing as the V8 where you disable stabillitrak?

Thanks. Any chance you could explain the difference between stabilitrak and traction control and what turning one or both off would do?

The thread explains it.

Traction control allows for a better launch and controls tire spin.

stabilitrack prevents the car from going out of control sideways. ( most helpful in rain, snow, or aggressive driving).

If in a V8. Competitive mode will allow for more lateral movement without stabilitrack being engaged.

So basically the SS cars have three settings ie, on/competitivemode/off, where the V6 cars have two, ie, on/off?

Competitive mode (V8 only): Performance driving (ex;track driving)
more "forgiving" stabilitrak setting, allows for more lateral load on vehicle before stabilitrak kicks in.

Both traction control and stability control off: In other words crazy out of control demon driving (Best part was watching Al try not to smile when saying this)
this should explain it better

ss have 4, ls/lt have 3

the ones above.
i really wish the V6 had a competitive mode, i like how it downshifts to aid braking and turning.

Looks like someone hasn't been paying much attention to what the V6's can do!

At this point, the only thing that makes me want the SS, is because the V8 exhaust note is the best in the world.

And I'd miss hearing it idle at the stop light, then mashing the gas and listen to it roar.

V8s are great, but, the V6 is a much more efficient motor. not only in terms of gas mileage, but in power per liter. its the V6 for me. it wont bother that i wont have the fastest car, because even had i gotten the V8 there would always be a faster car

ok so the v6 has smaller balls that means hook it up so when you cruise the whores will flock. Besides, mod the engine and it can be faster then v8...

you would be better off to just buy a v8 first but yes you can make the v6 better but it would take a hell of alot to make it that much better

Actually, you'd be suprized. Read the Thread about the LPE Supercharger. They expect to get 425 RWHP out of the V6. A stock SS is only around 365 RWHP. So yes. With some mods, a v6 could out perform a stock SS V8.
