Cometitive Mode

So I tried the competitive mode today and i cant get it to work.
The RPM keep going over 4500. The only thing i can think of is How fast do you have to put the pedlae to the floor???

Garage
Try holding down the button on the console for 7 seconds and both lights will come on then look out, your in charge and no computer to cover your backside. No traction control and no stability control .....called the seven second mode from hell.

I just tap the button twice (quickly) from normal on position and then the DIC tells me I'm in competitive mode, don't they all work the same????

At last--Dream HAS BECOME Reality....

Tap the traction button twice
Step on the clutch and put it in to first gear
Holding the clutch down with the car engaged in first gear step on the accelerator all the way down and the engine will rev all the way to 4400 rpm

And then uncle tom to ground control here we go

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.
