As far as I know, the No-Lift-Shift is independant of the PTMs. It should work no matter what mode you're in.

I can't verify that just yet because I'm still in the break in period on my Vert.

BTW The Verts dont have the PTM modes the coupes do, just normal and competition mode.

Why not just try it in each mode and find out?

I no lift shifted today outside of PTM.

I've also been practicing launching with traction control completely off and I'm getting good at taking off fast with little/no wheel spin

So when you no lift shift in normal PTM modes does it bounce off the rev limiter or does it keep the rpm tame for the next gear?

It holds the RPM it doesnt hit the red line

Oh it will hit the red line if the shift isn't quick enough. Done that already. In fact I don't see it trying to hold any specific rpm between shifts, just boost.

its tough on the brain not lifting off the gas. out of a dozen trys i had 1 perfect launch and shift but its so hard to hit those shift lights perfectly so the car doesnt buck or hit the limiter. i think i prefer old school launching where i lift to shift.

Does it work only if you start having used launch control? I tried once while on the track from 3rd to 4th and it seemed like I revved about 6500 RPM's (YIKES). Tried it again today up to just over 6000 and it didn't seem like the rev's were going to slow. The track try was in PTM mode 3 and the road try was out of PTM all together. I am dubious.

My TC'd 2009 Cobalt NLS works in any mode as long as you're @ WOT. The TC'd Cobalts have traction control, launch control and competitive modes and it works in all 3. Know it doesn't directly help you here but just throwin out some knowledge

Keep in mind that as with launch mode (At least in my 2011Vert) to have to slam the gas pedal to the floor. If you just push it, it'll rev as high as you want. Slam it, and it'll go to around 4000 (with my '11 at least) and hold there.

In the old days we always speed shifted, we never lifted. The only bad thing is back then no rev limiter and if you missed a shift you could over rev it floating the valves. Valve springs back then where not that good. We are talking 1968 1970.

Sounds right to me. For drag racing the suspention needs to be soft.

Doesn't the no-lift shift only work on the 2014 ZL1's?

If so can you tune a 2013 ZL1 to get the no-lift shift?

Edit: Oh wow I just realized this thread was from 2012 sorry I just googled no lift shift. So I guess the 2012-2014 camaro's all have the no lift shift mode? I was reading somewhere online and someone said only the 2014 ZL1 had the no lift shift.

Okay thanks just curious because I'm buying a 2013 ZL1, what mode do you have to be in in order for the no-lift shift to work.

Sorry for the questions I'm just curious, thanks by the way!

LOL... yes this is an old one. My 2012 has it and it works independent of everything. Super easy to use and get used to.

Convertibles have it, just not the ptm modes from my understanding.

So let me get this straight cause I didn't know this. No lift shift works in every mode and pretty much whenever you go WOT you can do it?
I have used it a few times now and like it but haven't played around with it enough to know my above questions
