    [VIDEO] Does the C8 Corvette Actually Have a Official Burnout-Mode?

    Motor Trend had the first shot at indepentantly testing the 2020 Corvette Stingray and they didn’t disappoint fans after releasing several videos on the same day showing the testing of the C8 Corvette’s launch control.

    The editorial team has also followed up on a series of great articles on the car that include a look from inside the C8 while on an autocross circuit as well as discussions on all the interior buttons and controls.

    But one certain point definitely caught our eye and that was the discussion on Launch Control and the unofficial “burnout mode”. It’s going to be a bit different now with a dual-clutch 8-speed transmission and electronic paddle shifters, but the process will be somewhat similar to current Corvette owners.

    For launch control, put the car into DRIVE and select TRACK MODE and then double-tap the ESC OFF button to bring up the Performance Traction Management (PTM) menu to select the mode: Wet, Dry, Sport I, Sport II, and Race. Once you’ve selected your PTM, stand on the brake with your left foot while flooring the accelerator with your right. Lift off the brake when the revs settle at 3500 RPMs and down the street you go!

    So you’re at the track and you want to warm your tires before making your run. Motor Trend says Chevy has an official “Burnout Mode” which is even easier to use. Put the car in DRIVE, stand on the brake and pull both paddle shifters to temporarilty open the clutches. Once you floor the throttle and release the paddles, the computer will do a controlled clutch dump and will let the tires spin. When you’re finished you lift off the throttle.

    With the C7, PTM was not available in the base Stingray. I guess that has changed with the C8?

    It sounds like the computer will control both engine RPM and "line lock" the brakes - very different to what I'm used to, but I look forward to trying it out.

      Yes, but you need both Z51 and FE4 Mag Ride added to the car (any trim level). Performance Traction Management comes as part of FE4. From the latest online Order Guide:

      B4Z Performance Traction Management
      1 - Included and only available with (FE4) Z51 performance suspension with Magnetic Selective Ride Control.

        In the video he says release the brake, then release the paddles, the car spins the tires a little and takes off. Nothing about line lock action. That would be a cool feature, if it has it. Power braking with those big rear calipers gripping may not work very well!
