I asked this question on the "Drag Strip" thread but did not get an answer so maybe someone here knows. When all the nannies are off, which of the three ZL 1 suspension modes is activated? I have been launching in PTM 5 with "track" suspension mode but want to try launch without nannies. Does suspension mode matter? Can you select suspension mode when nannies are off? Any advice would be appreciated. 2014 ZL1 M6

My best results were with everything turned off. You can only select either Sport or Tour mode with the "nannies" turned completely off. Use Sport because it has higher effort steering.

My updated time on the car is 12.46 @116mph. I run the same time with my tires deflated to 17psi and not deflating them at all. I keep my car in mode 2 with traction control and stability control off.

Looks like you might have hit a 1.9X 60' and getting better. Mode 2 still has traction and stability on just not as much of it.

No I haven't been able to run my car because I got some new rims. To make a long story short I'm waiting for my extended studs before I run my car again.

Well getting better but my fastest 60 ft is now 2.1. I need to figure out how everyone is hitting those 1.9 stock. I did get some all season tires so it will be interesting how those work. I have been using all the modes and mode 2 does work the best. My mph fastest mph is 117. I still need more practice feathering. I wish I could see somes rpms while there driving. Also I'm pretty sure the problem was me not heating the tires enough. Are you guys doing long burnouts to heat the tires? I'm just doing a quick one.

I shift pretty fast and I'm able to finally use the no lift shift. Car now has 8000 miles on it.

PTM 2 is keeping you from spinning with traction control so that's probably why you did better. My best 60' was 1.9 on stock tires using launch control in PTM 5. I'm probably not going back until I get DR's on and just turn it all off. The 18" ZL1 replica wheels coming next month are on my list.
