Street - For when you just wanna drive somewhere, works well in below average weather.
Sport - For when you wanna do a rolling burnout but don't want to spin sideways. I think it engages stability control and will cut power if the car gets sideways in a measure of G, but it'll let the wheels break loose as long as you want if you keep the car somewhat straight.
Track - For the track really, engages rear brakes and limits power by blipping it off and then back on. Causes wheels to stop spinning and then will regain momentum quickly. but really is only good for street racing when its super cold and you don't want to spin horribly, but limits power by a lot. Most good drivers at the track will have track suspension on but TC off because they'll have good warm tires.
I run sport on the default because It's the best for my style of driving. Everyone is different.
From my understanding SPORT traction is best used for straight line racing and the computer doesn’t allow it to pull power in any straight pulls but it will keep you a little safer incase if the car goes sideways?
Also is it better to use SPORT traction when you have better stickier tires since sport can get the car a little loose with tires that are not so sticky potentially going sideways?
If I remember correctly TRACK traction is less protective when the car goes sideways but pulls power when slipping during straight line pulls?
I have tried all three traction modes at times and they all seemed to slip while STREET traction still slipped but seemed to be the most stable. SPORT traction seems to be unstable while the car can get sideways unless you let off the throttle then things will calm down and bring you back straight. I do believe running a sticky tire during sport and track traction modes is safer as you will grip better with those modes as it can be dangerous with a regular tire if I’m correct?
Driver involvement plays a role obviously but curious if all this sounds right.
The default maximum-safety settings are what I use for traction and stability control.Just like the title says, I'm curious to know which of the three TRACTION modes (Track, Sport, Street) you folks favor the most and why?
You must be really babying it. Not much more my friend. Matter of fact if you have been that easy, stay in 500 hp mode because it is violent, especially with all season tires.So at what point do the factory Pirellis (All Season) REALLY start to let go? I'm babying the car for now, so I haven't completely gotten into the throttle, but I've only had it get a little squirrely. Just wondering when lane changes and merging into traffic will be really eventful.
We are not bullshizzing. You punch it appropriately and it will completely bust loose at about any sane speed, legal speeds for sure. Hold that traction control button to a chime for a few seconds first, then go and rip one.I think I'm just being extra cautious because
A) I've seen what all the idiots can do in these cars, and because
2) I'm sure I'll get addicted - waking up in the middle of the night and fumbling for the red key as I head to the garage.
Honestly, I have to say, the dumbest part of these cars is that they're even sold with a 275 tire on them. It's practically criminal in my opinion.I just put some 305 nitto 555rII on the rears, I comfortably drive in sport all the time now. With the pirellis I would rarely took it off street, it would spin without me even trying. It got to the point where it was plain scary to drive it sometimes lol. In sport with the new nittos I can floor it from a slow roll with minimal spinning, if I did that with the pirellis it wanted to go sideways. As most hellcat owners say, better rear tires make the world of difference.
