The owners manual does not mention the transmission in the StabiliTrac or Traction Control sections so it should be the same but… there is a video out there where a guy demonstrates “launch control”. It looks just like traction control to me. He said there is a zero load rpm setting in the ECM and it sounds to me that is what you are seeing when you cannot rev above 4400 or so. You cannot over ride this. My opinion this is to prevent damage to the drive train by drunken idiots.
I have an auto and I hit the button once and Traction control is off. I hit it again and traction control is on and StabiliTrac is off. I hold it for 7 or 8 sec and both are off. Hang on. Like LS3Power said,you can be sideways before you can say holy Schmidt. Competetive Mode just means that StabiliTrac is off.
When we get snow I turn them off and do the most perfect donuts ever. You need snow tires for that.
