So many questions, lol. I think you're right, though. I would like to see if everything can be turned off, though, because I've read and heard that Mr. Link's 'Ring run was with everything "OFF", so that leads me to believe that is something we're going to see, too...


I wonder then what setting they designed for road course? I thought it was setting 5 but if it softens the suspension for weight transfer then this would not be ideal.

If they do this it would only be during launch mode. Mode 5 would still be the most advanced mode for the road course.

I don't think anything will happen. I think they're stance would likely be that you can't expect the maximum benefit from that mode without VHT or DRs. If you're thinking that you shouldn't run in Mode 5 without either of those, I'm only suggesting that those are just not the conditions that mode was designed for and you wouldn't get the maximum benefit from it without those details We didn't see any videos with ZL1 on DRs from the track tests, so, once again - I have more questions than answers.

All in due time
That sounds right from what I have gathered, running mode 5 on the streets would probably yield a slower time.

I did read in the manual -thanks! - that it will DAMAGE the transmission if you try to change PTM while you are moving and it would not be covered by warranty. Just saying... gotta gets your ducks together before you decide to ..... MASH IT! LOL.. (some of us are taking longer these days to make decisions )


OH, and if any of you thought you'd get the automatic to make it easier for HER to drive...........

I will have to read up on this why on earth would they let you do that wile in motion if it damages things. that would be a simple software update.

How would changing PTM settings while moving damage the transmission? From what i can tell all its doing is changing the computer settings for the Traction Control and limiting or un limiting power?
