That's my understanding, reading the info in the GSM thread.jconnolly1119 said:......am I to assume that the GSM mod only affects the torque control and leaves the ABS as is?? If so it would certainly be worth the 200 bucks.
here's another one for NR.......you said mild wheelspin with the fuse out, but what I'm wondering is how you think it might affect the launch. I know in my 6.1 the rears break loose even with the ESP on. Turn it off and I can sit and spin for a little longer......long enough where it would negatively affect 1/4 mile times. Getting the rears to hook up properly takes some practice even with the ESP on. I guess I'll try pulling #17 to see what I get.....and then it's just practice,practice,practice
As to wheelspin - I definitely don't want it under any conditions. With some vehicles it is necessary because the engine will bog on hook up. Our torque curve is so low that has never been a problem. My 5.7 would spin the rears in 1st without power braking when I had the Contis. The BFG's grip much better, and only spun for a few feet with the fuse out.
With your 6.1, I think the fuse out will degrade your launch. It might improve the crispness of shifts, though. It seems to eliminate that deliberate torque drop between shifts.
