Yeah ...a 110 trap usually means a 12.4-12.5 1/4. That's quite impressive if the 1LE can do that.

I just saw you were on drag radials....because I was launching much lower to prevent wheel spin.

Good luck and let us know how it goes..

Tire spin usually leads to a higher trap speed and an obviously lower ET. With that being said you can rarely use a trap speed to calculate ET due to how each is measured at the track. On that note how does Motor Trend run all kinds of 13's in SS's but 12.7 in a 1LE? Or should I say does all the 1LE stuff help or hinder like a few people think it does?

Well this partially works. I can't see his posts but I can see he posted.

I am sure it was something very useful and objective.

Troll away troll!

I know the ZL1 has it for sure, even the old Cobalt SS had it and the Solstice GXP etc. Many GM cars have this feature because it is no that hard to calibrate and you will not kill synchros is my understanding since it cuts spark but allows the RPM to stay higher for better power ONCE YOUR SHIFTING IS COMPLETE, meaning no synchro work.

I personally haven't tried it on mine but I did do launch control in it once.

I have checked a few places... pretty sure we do not have the no lift shift programing on the 1LE equipped SS.

I promise you I have driven cars with a no lift shift, easily done on the 1LE shifting at regular RPMs no issue but WOT like at the track, not a chance. Plus one of the fun parts of taking a manual to the track is perfecting that shift and being consistent.

Again, not promoting it as an everyday driving technique, but unless C5 Corvettes and Gen 4 Camaros and Firebirds had this "no lift feature", which I do not believe they did, occasional use of no lift will not hurt. The WS6 we just sold had about 180k miles on here, and no tranny issues....for what it is worth.
I do agree with your comments about making the perfect, consistent shift being rewarding, and if the car is going to be drag raced a bunch, I am sure I would not want to "no lift" all the time. I was more thinking a max bonsai type run to see what you could get out of the car. If you are using drag radials, and bogging the car a bit, a higher RPM launch would seem to help, but I am sure you knew that. My fear is the car hooking and going, and something breaking at that point. Best of luck, and I am looking forward to seeing how you do.

What I'm trying to say is that I've tried...off track...just to see how it did and it rejected every time under wide open throttle. Someone trying at the track would not be a good time

i guess i'm just ignorant of the 1/4, but what is "no lift shifting?" and the programming being mentioned?

Leaving you foot on the gas while shifting. Essentially saving you a little bit of time on the 1/4mile

The ECM basically knows when you shift and reduces timing for a split second allowing you to remain WOT.
