My baby really took off. Scared the crap out of me. For all you street racers, make sure you do this before taking on any1.
PS Not condoning racing or anything, but if you're gunna do it, do it right I guess:thumbsup

Dea. R&E said:My dealer told me to turn it off when not needed. And by the way, does everybody have a low rumble until about 5 m.p.h. whenever you take off? It's kind of like I have snow tires for the first 6 feet. I only have 220 miles on the G.T.
nbk13nw said:From what I understand, as soon as the tires start slipping, the ECU (TCS) will start retarding the fuel and timing in order to bring the power down until the tires can get some traction.
brandobama said:I have noticed the rumble when just starting out. To me it sounds more like a deep whine. It is more noticable, happens more frequently, when the AC is on. I am assuming this happens only with the manual tranny, which I have.
