traction control?

I lifted this from the porsche thread:

"I have more info on the new Z/28 Camaro direct from a GM source, you read it here first (on the Porsche forum !)
Coilovers
Suspension roughly twice as stiff as the 1LE
7 mode traction management. Full on, full off, 5 progressive settings. System will manage wheelspin on apex exit, just nail the throttle.
No detailed build sheet yet"

I'm amazed I missed this...or maybe current camaros have this traction control already? Can anyone elaborate on it?

The SS has StabiliTrak, and competition mode. Don't know about the ZL1

ZL1 as well:

"Performance Traction Management influenced by the Corvette ZR1 with five performance settings adjusts for ambient and track conditions, driver experience and vehicle familiarity. "

thanks for the responses and link. Should I be lucky enough to get this car I look forward to using it. Hopefully the parameters can be changed while driving easily.

If it's anything like the zl1, it's very easy to change on the fly

It is probably my favorite feature of the car beyond the actual motor :-) I was a skeptic but it does work well. Want to know how well? Turn it off and release the beast. It is not just a marketing feature. It is a performance feature.

..this is what I figured and I was fishing for information on for some time now, since the car is a track and street platform, logically there is some driver input that would be able to be placed into the DSSV and the earlier stabiltrak system. Unconfirmed, but...predictable.
