competition mode in automatic

I am still waiting on my Camaro to come in. It will be an L99 auto. Will it have competition mode, and if so, what would it actually do? I know what it does for a manual.

How is that different than traction control (which it also has, right?)?

After reading through the manual (yikes), it appears this is only for manual transmissions...

Competition mode I believe is a part of the Stabilitrack system. To activate it you hit the TC button twice which turns off traction control and lowers the constraints set by stabilitrack by allowing the rear tires to slide out a bit more. Hold the TC button for 7-8 seconds and everything is off, ie. stabilitrack of and TC off.

The only thing the TC button will effect at the track is the launch, it is recomended to press the TC button twice at the track to turn off TC and keep the car in competition mode so the rear tires to don't break loose forcing you into the wall....which has already been done (see youtube).

I think you may have gotten your TC and ST mixed up there at the end... pressing twice turns off ST leaving TC on... This is Competition Mode and will show as such in the DIC. Pressing and holding will turn both off. (Yes L99s have this mode too)

One point about competion mode is since ST (Stabilitrack) is off and if you hit a wet patch down track you could end up in the wall ... ST is there to help save that slippery situation. If you are sure the track is clean then go for comp mode... this will leave TC on so you don't spin your tires on launch
