Does ls3 reduce timing at wot shifts?

Car seems soft? After banging the next gear. My imagination? All stock

Sure does, it cuts throttle electronically. Torque management. You have to tune it out.

So is it faster to lift throttle shift or is it induced by pushing in the clutch. ?

It's the same either way. Clutch pedal retards timing and TPS in the stock tune.

My experience has been that going to 3/4 to 1/2 throttle while shifting has made the most pleasant chirping of gears and nice acceleration. I guess the trick is to keep the computer from intervening until you get a tune in her.

Why are ya'll shufting at WOT? You wanna kill the rearend and tranny? Geeze learn how to shift better and get a short throw shifter. They are not ment to be slammed into gear at full power.

I'm not sure I know how to finesse the car down the quarter. I guess an old dog will need to learn a new trick.

No wonder why people have problems with manual transmissions. They really aren't built for that type of abuse. I guess that's the reason GM has the no lift shift feature on the ZL1.

Traction controll was disabled I think.
two taps and the lights come on in the dash. Also my last run I came out off the
line too hard and was fish tailing all over
Them ran it into rev limiter. A real piece of driving.

Jimz...two taps will only activate competition mode which still have traction control and stabilitrac set more loose but if you want to get rid of the torque management , TC and Stabilitrac you need to hold down the buttom for 8 seconds.

Ok , last fishtailing run was holding the button down for a long time instead of two taps. So if I thought the two taps was off but with stability still on.
So for the quickest time everything off and slip clutch out of the hole and lift shift, correct ?
