SS 1LE - no lift shift?

I noticed this in the Motor Trend story. It mentions no lift shift. I kinda doubt that they would straight up power shift, do we think the PTM in this car also has no lift shift on certain drive modes at WOT?

i noticed that as well... my assumption would be the no lift shift feature is activated through one of the PTM modes

If you watch the lightning lap on the 1LE you can see him no lift shift a couple times.

It looks like he's lifting up on the accelerator pedal while shifting to me. Maybe I missed the specific instances you're talking about.

First shift in the video is a no lift @ 0:24

1:45 questionable but sounds like it
same with the shift at 2:10

Then he does a couple more no lift shits at 3:10 and 3:20

He doesn't do it every time but more often than not.

I'm not a huge fan of no lift shift, it just seems like an accident waiting to happen.

How do you figure? I've used it on other cars, on track it's great.

I guess I am just used to lifting slightly when shifting. Especially when I drive a lot of different cars, its easy insurance for me. I rather not accidentally tac out a clients vehicle.

With this being my own personal car, I may give it a go again.

Same with Launch control, I'd rather just do it myself.

Well the car does cut timing when you press the clutch, it's not like straight up power shifting or anything like that.

So no lift shift is part of the active rev match correct? The car puts the RPMs at the correct speed for the gear you are going in to?

Thats worth a couple seconds alone. I suck at heel toe...

I assumed as much. Good to get confirmation though.

Active rev match is for downshifting...throttle blipping.

No lift shift means at WOT you keep the throttle pinned, no lifting when you shift. The car senses the clutch engagement and kills a little timing to keep the revs in check.

Sort of. I haven't used it on the 6th gens, yet. I wouldn't doubt if it's evolved to that level...

On the 5th gen ZL1, it just held the throttle plate closed enough to avoid hitting redline while you engaged the clutch to shift. You were able to hold the accelerator to the floor and bang through the gears
