Traction Control for LS3?

Is the traction control feature able to be turned off and on? Does it only function in 1st gear? I was reading a drive test and they wrote about going down the street spinning the tires.

Traction control is only on the L99/aka A6 automatic Camaro.
The Manual (M6) LS3 has launch control instead if im not mistaking.
Keep in mind both Cars have an LS3 but one the Automatic is called
a L99 because of the AFM that is in the car.
Manual Car puts out 426hp and the Auto puts out 400hp

Both versions (actually, ALL versions -- the V6 with either transmission & both of the V8s (which also means with either transmission)) have traction control. Traction control has several settings of "nannyishness", including the option to turn it off. In addition to traction control (which is intended to minimize wheel-spin under acceleration), they all also have "Stabilitrak" (which is intended to address dimensional stability beyond just wheelspin under acceleration), which can also be dialed down or turned off.

Additionally, all have anti-lock brakes (which cannot be turned off.) In addition, the LS3 version (the LS3 and L99 share some components but are substantially different), which is mated to the manual transmission, has "launch control" to minimize wheel-slip in full-out standing starts and no-lift shift feature to help with redline shifting. The L99 needs neither of these, really, because both functionalities are basically part of the design of the automatic transmission itself.

Thanks for the info. What's the deal on "no lift shifting"?

There's a thread on it, titled "no lift shifting".


Ignore all the junk in that thread...
