    Looking at a couple WS6's

    Hey guys still looking at a few dif cars to buy and while they both have the right RPO codes saying that they are factory WS6 transams one of them has NW9 and U1S as additonale codes on the car. Just wondering what those ones mean if anyone knows. Both are 2002.
    Thanks

    Thanks Knight, though I thought all of them came with electronic traction control so shouldn't they all have that code? Still havn't decided if I want my dad to pick the car up for me or just wait till I am back in the states. 02Ragtop thanks for the offer but I am more of a T-tops guy

    My 2002 WS-6 (6M) also doesn't have traction control. I haven't decided if its a good or bad thing.

    Not true. I have it on my 9". Most aftermarket fabricators offer it as an option.

    I'd need to be putting a lot more power down than what I currently am before I'll need to do that. And that would be after upgrading to the newly upgraded T-56's that are out there.

    My question is more related to how quirky the T/C is on these cars.

    Traction control is worthless in these cars imo. I wish I didn't order it on mine. Should not need to upgrade your T56 either unless it's damaged. Mines all stock and pretty tough, still shifts good.

    TC is good in the rain, when your right foot is heavy, when those turns look nice, when your flying onto an on ramp beating traffic.................
