    Stability Control System
    Name Second-Generation Active Handing
    Function Works with Corvette’s ABS and Traction Control systems to assist the driver in keeping the car stable and balanced in emergency or spirited driving conditions - on wet or dry surfaces.(2) Carefully calibrated to avoid unwanted intrusion into thedriving experience.
    Special Componentry Brake pressure modulator, steering wheel angle sensor, lateral accelerometer, and unique core software algorithms.
    2001 Improvements
    -Active Handling is now standard on all Corvette models
      -New lighter-weight Bosch 5.3 pressure modulator provides better overall response and improved pressure apply times in cold weather.
      -Electronic rear proportioning algorithm eliminates rear brake proportioning valve.
      -New algorithms for more precise, less intrusive control of sideslip angle rate, rear brake stability and wheelspin.
      -The unique-to-Corvette Competitive Mode may now be activated without bringing the car to a stop
    (2) A Note of Caution: The overall effectiveness of the Corvette Active handling System is directly related to available tire traction and the aggressiveness of a given maneuver. Active Handling is designed to use existing traction to assist the driver - but it cannot overcome the laws of physics. Please drive responsibly.
