Competitive Driving Mode for me..... :cool:

Pushing the button is a habit like clicking my seatbelt.... I do it without thinking. :D

Comp Mode

Only if I am getting serious.................
Otherwise, I leave AH/TC on for street driving...........
But, usually I am in a serious frame of mind when wheeling the ZEEMONSTER:lol: :lol:

Anyone who drives there Z without AH or CM on is asking for a totalled car. Its saved my ass numerous time already :D. If this car did not have these features, there would be totaled Zs all over the place!

I drive with AH/TC on most of the time. I always tune them off when drag raceing. Competion mode when I know in advance that I will be trying to drive over my head. Ric

I leave mine on 60% of the time. When I want to play,then I switch to Competitive Mode. As you know when you are in this mode, there is a constant reminder on the dash( that you can't turn off). If you aren't"up on the wheel", you could be off in the grass in a big hurry :eek:. What fun :lol:

Baron,

You _can_ turn off the "Competition Mode" display in the DIC. Just hit the RESET button. You're still in Comp Mode, but now you can see your other gauges.

I do not like TC...period. If its wet or something, fine. Otherwise, its a hinderance when accelerating if it kicks in hard. The delay there is when it kicks in isn't good.

Trust me...0-60 in 4.0 sec times that these guys run is done with TC off. AH may still be on. I do like that b/c I'm not a good enough driver to get the most out of this car around the twisties anyway.

Since I am not Mario Andretti I leave AH on all the time except when I go to the track in which it is on Comp. mode.

So with CM on, AH is still on correct? then what's the key difference? when CM is off.

Maybe I should read my owners manual again. Thanks. I thought that strange that I could not monitor oil pressure/temp :-? And I leave mine on, cause I like going around "twisties" as fast as I can. Amazing how this(these) cars "Hang ON".Just like being on rails.

The only time the system is full up (everything ON) is in rain or snow. Normal daily driving is in CM. I don't race on the public streets, but you never know when the challenge will be irresistable (therein lies a "kill" story). ;) ;) ;)

Always use competitive mode. Not really sure when it kicks in though.

Went around a corner that was slick from salt dust, the rear started moving out of line but I didn't see any notice in the dic.

I instinctively let off the gas, maybe it didn't get out of line enough for the cm to engage.

Both on unless I am on the course. If it kicks in and you hate the delay and you think you are too good of a driver, then you are not. I can always get into trafic or pull into a small gap at a good pace and keep the tires from busting lose. If you think that the ah/tc is slowing you down, then learn to push to the limit without going over.

Whenever the system kicks in on me, I know I just drove it wrong and better learn to drive.

I use Competitive Mode about 90% of the time. TC is on in the rain and snow.

The only time I turn it all off is if I wanna pull a Rockford Files 180 degree turn.:D

AH has saved my ass more than once.
