Being the tire burning street demon that I am.(3 sets of tires @ 36k miles.)
All the above is true. Just turning off TractionControl doesnt completely disarm StabilTrack. This combined PCM/ECM/TCM complex system pulls timing/starves fuel as well as directs power from side to side. Pulling one front wheel speed sensor will help further disable this. The tranny will shift itself if you reach a certain point, regardless of your gear choice. I like to find a "sweet spot" not quite at a WOT to get really nice display.
At least You SSEi members can get a PCM with all this control flashed out of it.
