PTM and racing the ZL1 vert

Hey guys,

Gonna take my new Z to the street legals this weekend. What PTM mode are you vert guys running in for the best traction?

I realize we don't have all the PTM options as the coupe, so I assume it will be some sort of nannies on/off in sport mode.

Are we paddle shifting or letting the car do the shifting?

My Z is an automatic.

My last SS was a 6 spd manual, so this will be a totally different experience.

Thanks !!

The vert does not have PTM.

I think he knows that.

It'll may depend on your weather which mode you use. If your tires are sticking you may get away with nannies off.

Get out on those backroads and practice!!!

I double punch trac control and stab control off. I put shifter in manual (Sport) mode. Then I paddle shift down to first gear once at a stop. You then must figure out how much gas to give it and how to feather the throttle while making your paddle shift into second gear. Watch the dots on the HUD on your windshield and it will be advisable to shift up into the next gear before they touch.

He said we don't have all the PTM options. It does not have PTM, it has TCS and stabiltrack. People get confused, PTM integrates TCS, Stabiltrack and selective ride control together to function together. It is on pg. 9-37 of the owners manual.

I wouldn't race a convertible and even if I did I sure wouldn't turn the nannies off. That's just me though. Good luck. Be safe!

Dude.....I read the owners manual....also read many threads and watched several vids regarding this matter. Some say that sport mode with competition mode is equal to PTM 5 on the coupe...maybe or maybe not....don't really care. I was looking for advice from peeps that have raced the ZL1 vert.

Raced my last vert and going to race this one....best of both worlds.

Ok, a lot of people do not understand the difference. They assume that is the same set up as the Coupe. A better way to ask is where do you set your TCS and stabiltrack. This type of thread has happened many times and usually leads to confusion.

So all convertibles don't have PTM?

I have a M6 but I use sport and turn off the traction control. Most say turn everything off but I want a little protection if I get Squirrely!
