    01 WS6 no TCS?

    Everyone has told me I have to have a TCS button my my shifter, but I dont, while tranny was out I noticed I had 1 connector that didnt go to anything when I took my console apart...every trans am or WS6,SS camaro,Z28 I have seen has one of them TCS buttons...my 2001 WS6 is all black,black leather, 6SPEED,3:42 gears,alum driveshaft,ram air hood,raised ram air box to fit with the hood,and when I took tranny out it had the Z06 clutch like the 01-02 WS6 had.....why dont I have a TCS button?....why dont I have traction control....I know its hard to do a brakestand, I cant even do it at the track I just roll through the water and dump it at 5000 and it spins and quits...but in stock form it ran 13.08 with just a slp air lid I put on and msd plug wires and hooker muffler...thats was my first run and it was a 2.0 60ft...I never had that good in a stick...you think maybe I had TCS at one point and a previous owner broke the original console, then got one from a F body that didnt have a TCS button and installed it?...would the TCS just be stuck on?...maybe thats why I hook so good?

    no............ tcs was an option...dont worry about it...you dont have tcs....check in your fuses for the tcs...even better why dont you look at the rpo numbers and look them up.

    My 98 has no traction control. Factory option? My traction control is my right foot.

    If its not under the hood, then you don't have it. Consider yourself lucky, as I have it and HATE it. Not to mention its a pain in the ass to remove...

    if you dont have it, consider yourself lucky---- it's annoying to have to turn it off every time you start your car

    Yes. Your RPO codes on the door will tell. I dont have tcs but I have the performance axle option. I think it is gu5 for automatics only.

    thats the anwser I was lookin for, I bet thats it then my car just doesnt have it, and my pedal doesnt push back, I guess that old worn out Z06 clutch was slippin a bit is why I never spun and always hooked up and had 2.0-2.2 60ft's....I got my built tranny in,headers,catless y pipe and spec clutch and I only got 40 miles on it all but I had to try it so I hit it in 1st going about 10mph and my ass end just went straight right...definately a lot more power now and clutch grabs harder
