In my searching for a '99-04 I have noticed some have traction control. Is this a viable option to have? I'm assuming one with the traction control option adds money to the purchase price.

It can be a nice feature for most "common" people to have, but as car enthusiasts, we don't like traction control. I have mine permanently disabled in the tune.

Ain't nobody got time for abs and traction control.

Unless you're driving in white shit, no need for traction control

Is it really that poor of a traction control system found on some new edges?

Like does it not function well say in the rain or adverse weather? Or are all yall just disabling it because you enjoy spirited driving?

I've driven a c5 corvette with their active handling system and it worked really well and was a nice "safety net". I recently test drove a HCI CTSV I was looking at buying, and the active handling was disabled in the tune which I would have liked to have for bad weather days. The active handling system gm uses will give you some freedom to kick the back end out even, but still activate the brakes to help the front stay pointed forward.

traction control is BS. Stupid button has to be pressed so I can light em up and bark gears.

Ha I was thinking the exact same thing. I need to have it turned off in my tune. Ideally I'd like to have it still turned on, but default to turned off when I start the car. Not sure if that's doable though in the tune.
