TC/ESC comparisons

did a quick search to answer below question.....no luck ( I think)

I get the PTM/MR/TC differences the ZL-1 comes with (and off the 'Vette); does that mean you cannot tune the SS TC/ESC (M6) to be more 'aware' of increased HP/TQ when you add blower, etc, to the SS? Or there is no way to get a ZL-1 like capability?

Traction Control and Stability Control are different features. Traction Control modulates torque/power to rear to allow for max acceleration out of a corner. Stability control modulates brakes (primarily) to keep the car inline.

tracking...(no pun intended..)
aside from killing tq mgmt; are either wise (doable) adjustments to accommodate blowers on SS models

or more specifically....how far off is SS from the ZL1 settings?

I haven't heard of people being able to tune in power to the TC/Stabilitrac systems...I have read they've turned the torque-management down quite a bit....

The magic of the ZL1's chassis control is the PTM software; which is a separate system that makes use of the TC, Stabilitrac, and MR systems in harmony to keep the driver in complete control. Since PTM is not available on an SS, I don't think there is any way to get that same level of computer control.

kinda as I feared....

may just have to kidnap...er..I mean...borrow...a GM Engineer and 'accommodate' him in my garage with some 'high quality' bread and water to sort it out!!

Thx for the feedback...I guess re-training the foot will be my best bet...

last thought.....is TC and/or ESC able to compensate for blower TQ/HP increases?
