Yep , It is actually 7 seconds if it is like my 11' was. When you do that Be Careful! LoL there is no controls at all on the car except sterring wheel, gas and brake pedals! Its definitely fun though!!

Thanks for the heads up shawn. At least now when I activate the setting, I won't be surprised from the lack of controls!

No problem , It's like "unleashing" the power the car has stored. Its dangerous to play around with it when you discover this mode , but its so tempting to just " turn it loose" every now and then.

haha...i've been putting it into Competition Mode lately...after seeing it displayed on the DIC, I'd love it if the car would actually announce to me something like "Competition Mode, enabled." Maybe "Strap in and shut up" when all the nannies are off

Looks great man! Did you actually drop the cash for the GM stripes or did you find those somewhere else? I haven't been able to find that particular style at a reasonable price :(

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

http://goo.gl/maps/QaU6P

and here's a few pics i took at one of the scenic points overlooking Waikiki and Diamond Head Crater. also met a retired Air Force guy up there while we were stopped, and got started talking...as we left he was shooting pics of the car "to calibrate the color in his camera" lol

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!
