Competition Mode, Traction Control Off, or All Nannies OFF?

M6 guys only, how do you get your best 60ft? I know the norm is having all the nannies off. Has anyone had better results on a different mode?

I've ran in Competitive Mode and my 60ft wasnt anything to brag about. With TC on, it bogged down to much, but i only tried it once. Next time I go I plan on running nannies off. If I can ever get back out to the track between rain and work.

In my A6 I run all nannies off if that helps any. I know it is not a M6, but might help.

I got my best time slipping the clutch at about 5k rpm on bolt ons with drag radials. I had all the nannies off. I'll be at high hp level so I always wondered if the stabilitrac would help with the wheel spin at all

I've tried and tested this. The less help you have the better off you are when attempting a straight line shot at a TRACK with proper tires. Otherwise, Comp mode would probably be best for street.

Nannies off at strip, M6, bolt-ons = 1.6 60'
Comp mode at strip, M6, bolt-ons = 1.9 60'

Although Comp mode is less severe than full nannies, it does still have TC and will not allow burnouts and strong launches. I have videos of my learning of the TC system on the car and it's a whole other animal with good tires and nannies off.

I bought all the ZL1 stuff as a set, so I have no idea what the axles cost. I am M6.

That's a nice 60'. Was that on 20's? Can you post a link to the video?

This may be a dumb question but how do you do "nannies off"? I've run in competitive mode and when I shift to second it's almost as if the car hesitates and then goes. I ran with TC off and didn't get much better. My best time so far, STOCK everything, is a 13.7 at 107 mph. Tire pressure has not been touched since I picked it up brand new so I'm sure it's very high. Thought about lowering the pressure a bit to see if that helps. The factory F1's are definitely sticky.

Hold the TC button for a 10 count. Now you are in control of the car.
