The models which have the 6 speed auto should have traction control as standard I'd imagine.

Haggis you'll find better tyres and wider tyres will make a difference.
Don't forget that the 6 speed is only being fitted to performance and luxury model cars - that means that most of them will have 17/18" wheels and probably a decent set of tyres from the factory.

An update on the ZF 6-speeder auto for our Falcon and Territory's.
Testing still continues on home grown Falcons in Germany.
Ford expects them to be in our sedans in October, to counter Holden's plan's for a Hydro 6 speed auto in all Commodore sedans starting with the VE variant *
Adding to that, Ford has been told that it's current 4.0L I6 must meet the new Euro III emission standards by the end of the year. Which it currently does not. Therefore there is a 90% chance that there will be an updated version of the current I6 to go with the new ZF 6 speed in October. Stay tuned 8-)

* denotes that GM America has just pulled the plug on GMH's Zeta rear drive, world car platform project. And may spell the end to American GM rear wheel drive cars in the near future. GMH have stated that the current VE Commodore is too advanced to be affected by this, but as GMH is driven by GM America, if they decide there will be no further rear wheel drivers. The VE could be the second last rear wheel drive Commodore ever.
Adding to GM's financial difficulties. The final tally of GM's FIAT fiasco is now known. GM have lost a total of 4.4 BILLION dollars in the acquisition, and then the subsequent failure of Fiat. Money that has according to them. Gone straight down the drown.
