I suspect that there may be different levels of suspension, one geared for a more race-like handling.
I would think it would feel similar to the G8, and the G8 seems to handle nicely based on reviews.

On snow, there will be traction control (probably optional equipment), so it should be fine. :)

Stability control has to be standard by that time. Doesn't that give it traction control or are they 2 seperate things.

edit: I was wrong. It does not have to be standard until 2012

As long as you can totally turn it off, without having to pull a fuse, I want it. But when I autocross my car, I don't want any nanny messing with me.

I also hope you can disable all of it.

I also wish there was a way to adjust it to suit your needs.

First of all, I don't want to know how my Camaro will handle snow, 'cuz it will NEVER SEE any...that's what my Silverado 4WD is for.;) As far as traction control, as long as I can defeat it with the push of a button, (my 94 Vette) then that's okay with me.

Pff, too lazy to pull a fuse? No wonder you're having issues with weight!

*run* :D
Stomach...too...big...to...bend...over.... :D

I'm just afraid the fuse will also control the brake lights.

Kinda like how my useless DRLs are on the same fuse as the not-as-useless fog lights? :(

And geeze, even when I weighed 280 I could reach the fuse panel on the bottom of my old 1988 Olds's dash. :p
You never figured out how to kill them?

I can, but that also kills the fogs.

And I can't read an electrical diagram so I don't want to start poking around to disable them that way.
This might be worth a try, but I am not sure how its wired.

Your DRL's are on your brights I think.
If there are 3 wires running to your bright lights and your brights are seperate from your dims(if your DRL's are hooked to your brights) (If there are only 2 wires then your SOL) ok if there are 3 get a tester light (only $2-4 or borrow one) unplug the bright light, hook the tester's clip to a ground. turn on your DRL, there will be 3 connectors inside the plug, touch one of them with the tip of the tester, find the one that lights up the tester, take note of it, turn your DRL's off and turn on your brights, find the one that works the brights, make sure its not the same one, If its not follow the wire back a few inches and clip it, plug it back up and turn on your DRL's again, that side should not light up, repeat for the other side.

alternative:

98 and up DRL

Remove the cover on the fuse box under the hood. Locate the DRL relay. Locate pin 87A and 30 on the relay. DO NOT MODIFY PINS 87A OR 30. Bend or cut the other pins off the relay. ( I recommend bending the pin incase you bend the wrong one, you can always straighten it). Then plug the realy back in and check to make sure the DRLs are off and you still have high beams.

94-97 S10 with fog lights

First, disconnect the battery so you don't shock yourself (trust me, I learned the F-ing hard way)
Second, you need to pull of the front of the dash (take out the two screws in the cluster area, then just pull it off.
Then unscrew the fuse box. Locate the #15 fuse on the back of the fuse box. You will notice, there is one orange wire in, and two orange wires out. the two going out is what you focus on. One is for the fog lights, and the other is for the DRL's. Cut one, connect the battery and turn the ignition on. Pull the e-brake. If the DRL's are off, GOOD GUESS!! If you cut the wrong wire, connect the wire you just cut, and cut the other one. Your done and enjoy.


If it were me I would use a tester light to find the correct orange wire instead of just cutting it, if that failled to work then I would just cut it.

I bet if I tried that..some how I would find a way to catch my truck on fire.
