No, except the Supercar tires don't squeal like some have in the past and you
are moving quicker than you think. Never found it very hard to keep it under
control during a burnout or just hard acceleration. Look at your tread depth and
you will see that they are slipping more than you realize.
Oops, never figured in the temperature, don't know where you are. Mine now has
the winter tires on it which don't grip as well with 1" less tread width. They
don't squeal much either but they do run better in the rain which is their
'During moderate to hard acceleration in 2nd and 3rd gear the back end
gets squirrelly. Windows are up so I can not hear any tires squealing.
When I let off the pedal the car tracks straight . Its a stock 2005 Z51
with 30 psi in the stock tires.
Any thoughts guys?'
REPLY: Sounds like what a Corvette is supposed to do ! You dont have
a problem .
Someone mentioned that I should see "traction system active" on the DIC when
I cant say if that message appeared because I didn't look down, and I let
off the pedal just at it starts to get squirrelly. Will get on a stretch of
empty road and see if this message appears.
Will post back soon.
One wheel must exceed the speed of the other by a given amount to activate the
message and yes it will appear. Let it out to much and you get this -
A fellow working near us tried to pass a car and his Vette got all
squirrelly..he tried to correct it at the same time as the traction control
thing did it's job..result ...spun on a dry road at about 50mph hit a tree
and was killed...?? So watch your a** you could end up like he did...some
reports think the air bag deployment broke his neck...????
