Had a great drive up and down Tantalus this afternoon in competition mode...Tantalus is a mountain road full of real hairpin turns, figured it's about as close to a road course as I'm gonna get out here. The drifters love it, I managed to break loose a few times but (thankfully) not really go sideways lol. I'll post pics in a few minutes...getting a BBQ going here this afternoon

Shawn and Ozzy, your pics look great. I like the red stripes shawn. I too went out today on some wild rides. Broke traction making a left turn when I got in to it, and 2nd gear really came to life. Oh, Went into a convenience store for lottery tickets, and somebody shouted who owns that Camaro out there. Anyway the young cashier ran out and was gasping over my car..lol..well, I'm glad she found it exciting!

Just talked to the dealer and my baby is awaiting my return. After waiting all this time, it arrives while I have to be away. I will pick it up Monday. I should be getting some pics shortly.

See my Ride Control System thread. Pressing and holding does not put the car into competitive mode; it puts the car into StabilTrak system OFF mode. I'm assuming that for track days we want StabilTrak OFF mode and not competitive mode. Competitive Mode does have computer control for straight line acceleration.

Remove the bow tie from the front and rear. Remove the SS from the front and read. Add the 1LE to the cowl. Done. Stripes are hot.

Careful. If you know what you're doing, great. I rode with one of the Racing Pros from Hooked on Driving today. His recommendation was to leave it on, even on the track, until you feel hampered by the car. THEN turn it off to push a bit more.

Are you saying not to use competition mode? Or just not to turn everything off?

I would put black for sure. It will really look good against the CRT. I wanted to do red against my car since it was a dark color.

Yep you are right. Launch control is used by alot at dragstrips. I have used them all on my old 11' SS and I got my best times leaving everything on. I never tried to launch "real hard" I was just having fun , but with the other modes you get alot of wheel spin on the factory pirelli's. I haven't tried the 1LE yet , but probably will go to Zmax dragway in Charlotte , NC this summer sometime and see what happens..

Ozzy, we have to set up a play date! Lol. I pick her up Monday @1 and will be out most of the day. Somehow I plan to get 150 miles the first day... I might not sleep.

Only use it (turn the computer override stuff off) if you know how to correct out of a dire situation. The book says to only use this on track. And the race driver I talked to today said leave it all ON (don't turn it off) till you're on the track and feeling like the computer is controlling too much.

^^^^ Agree 100% ...Turning everything off can get a little hairy if you aren't careful. On the track though...........

Here's is an example of traction control OFF and a resulting accident. The YouTube comments suggest he should have braked and he would have been safe.

My understanding of a car with little understeer like the 1LE is that if you start spinning out w/o traction control you need to drive out of it. This guy didn't drive out of it nor did he brake as per the comments.

What is the truth here?

EDIT: at 0:42/0:43 you can see his hands going to 12:00 o'clock and 2 o'clock so it seems he /was/ trying to drive out of it therefore the YouTube comments seem accurate. Should he (a) have accelerated more and reverse his steering into the direction of his circle since turning away wasn't working, (b) braked HARD, (c) other?

To me it looked like inexperience played more of role than anything...Simply to much gas in the wrong part of that curve. The way it snapped around there wasn't alot he could have done..imo.. At .40 sec. you can here him accelertate hard comin through those S curves and it snaps around.......I don't have much experience on auto cross myself. I have been on and around drag racing a little more. ...Hope the guy is ok..

Here's a summary matrix of all the nanny controls on the car. MG helped explain the settings a bit more so I made a matrix:
