    Neither of my Camaro SS's have had traction control. I see a lot of upper end fbodies without it.

    Is there a panel with a logo on it, or is there a switch for something else mounted in place of the TCS? Just curious.

    Just a little black plastic piece that fits into place instead of the switch. I have moved mine around, but this should give you the idea, it used to be right next to the fog switch, but I centered the dash plaque and moved the other piece to the far right.

    I was thinking the area where you have a little storage cubby. That's where our TCS is mounted in a plate. It's neat to see the differences as I have had essentially no F-body experience since the late '80s until we bought our car last August.

    -----------------------------------------

    I assume it's just your pic -- your center console trim ring isn't "sparkly" is it?

    You are correct on the differences. On the Camaro's, the vert top switch is located where the TA's have their TCS switch.

    My console is color matched in pewter metallic, I have 3 other interior pieces that are color matched as well. If you want a pic, I have one somewhere of the entire interior that shows all 4 pieces.

    My guess was the traction control too.

    Mine is a 02 WS6 and it does not have it either. I have not seen many low mileage well taken care of Fbods with it.

    Absolutely -- your car is essentially a work of art. I couldn't decide if it was the camera/lighting or paint when I looked at the pic.

    My '02 WS6 A4 is traction controlled, I believe that the Manual cars don't have the traction control. One click on the E-brake handle = Daytime lights off.

    wow its been a while since this thread. my cars come a ways since then. ive never had another code come up since, and iv just learned that the cars just wasnt as fast as i was hopeing nthing wrong with it just not what i was hopeing i guess. i also have a second gen with a big block so maybe i was just used to the tourqe being lower.

    either way alots changed since this post from stripes wheels and a ful rainbow/zapco car pc install. power wise i have a brand new d1sc kit in the garage along with some minor bolt ons that will be going on this winter. should pep it up a little bit

    what some one should have said was have it run the dyno. That's what i did when i bought mine. Told me everything was working fine. 324 hp 338 ft lbs. And yes it has plenty of power to smoke both the tires, and the factory clutch. Both replaced. Hell, mine would roast the tires at 55 and put it sideways on the street.
