  • Sport mode and cylinder deactivation

    Wondering for those that have been to a dealer tour, if the question has been asked as to whether cylinder deactivation takes place in sport mode with or without using paddles?
    Thanks

      Ron, your post answer is about 95% confirmed at this point, that when one is exclusively using paddles, there is no cylinder deactivation, but when one is in D, the computer will put the motor in and out of cylinder deactivation. Or to answer your question another way, if you chose tour mode and also selected M, exclusively using your paddles, you will not have cylinder de-act.

        You are quite adventurous with your C8 specs. I do like that yellow.
        I am looking at the rapid blue or elkhart lake blue. I am going to wait for the 2021 model year. I would like to see reviews from the various car magazines as well as consumers. My allocation is under 50, so hopefully will not be a long wait.

          Fun; fun. I was just trying to create the most unusual combo I could think off. Did I succeed, or should I change my signature box?

          For real, today’s winner for me would be Elkhart Lake Blue.

            John, why am I not believing that you would really order the yellow with blue interior, red seat belts and perter wheels???

                And when he gets behind the wheel, John will be wearing tan shoes, with pink shoelaces, a polka dot vest and, man oh man, tan shoes with pink shoelaces, and a big Panama with a purple hat band.

                  I think you should go with orange seat belts and red calipers.

                    I feel like it's time to dredge this one up again:

                    PINK!

                    Maybe add a custom black canopy mash-up to it?

                      Oh, that is one ugly combo. Maybe I should choose it — again achieving a hideous car, but it would be a 1-of-1.

                        I think the world would be a better place if it remained a 0-of-1.

                            You all are joking, but just wait and see what someone will put together. Never underestimate the color blind.
