  • Will C8 have Launch Control

    I haven't read anything yet regarding the new C8 having, or not having Launch Control. I have to admit I only used it a couple of times on my C7 but it was an interesting option.

    'There will also be launch control and an electronic limited-slip differential.' I think that quote might be confusing, since I've read similar without mention of the electronic differential.

      Z51 gets the electronic diff, base C8 does not so another good reason to go with the Z51

      Launch control exists for C8 as GM marketing :

      Each mode may change these settings:

      • Gauge cluster
      • Electronic Throttle Control
      • Transmission Shift Mode
      • Active Fuel Management
      • Exhaust (variable mode exhaust)
      • eLSD
      • Steering
      • Magnetic Selective Ride Control
      • Launch Control
      • Active Handling
      • Traction Control
      • Performance Traction Management

        I talked with a chassis engineer at the reveal about the two C8 diffs. The entry car has a traditional differential whereas the Z51 has an electronic LSD, that latter having a clutch to progressively adjust the forces applied to each wheel.

        https://www.chevrolet.com/upcoming-v...2020-corvette#. One of the videos is just about the eLSD.

            According to one of the videos put out by Chevy the launch control is automatically engaged when track mode is selected.
