Yes, there is nothing more to shut off. Traction, however, will still be assisted by your mechanical limited slip differential.

Yes - the hold and press will turn stability control completely off.

Here's an older thread with a post from the owner's manual (SRT) that explains the various modes of On / Sport / Track with respect to traction control and the stability control.

And, just in case people are wondering what exactly all these great features are, and how do they work in concert with each other, Jalopnik has this great article with videos.

"A spinoff of ABS (pun fully intended), electronic stability control (ESC) is a computerized control system that applies brakes to individual wheels and reduces engine power to ensure that drivers maintain control of their vehicles. Introduced in the mid 1990’s by Mercedes, this now-mandatory system (in the US as of 2012) has been shown to drastically reduce the risk of automobile accidents. In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety claims that one third of all fatal accidents could have been prevented had this technology existed sooner."

ok, I did some testing, once I hit srt button, i pick custom, once I do that it only shuts off traction control, I have to hit the traction control button and wait for it to chime, once I do that it shows traction "off" on my custom page.

So I laid into the throttle and weeee, away I went just fishing tailing thru the gears, the tires just kept spinning and spinning. That's what I was looking for. Of course laying black marks is not the goal here. Just wanted to make sure I was free from the nanny controls so there is no braking or power reduction once I get to the race track.

I did run a 1/4 mile for kicks, 4.9 0-60 mph run with 12.9 1/4 mile, man there is just no traction in this car. Specially with my sumitomo 275 40 20 tires.

Thanks to all who replied.
