What are the main differences? I assume R mode allows for a little bit of slip, then it takes over. VDC Off just means no traction control at all correct?

Yea, that's pretty much

Normal - very little (if any) slip
R - a bit more
Off - guess :D

Yup, what they said.

Newer GTRs have different stability control programming which allows more slip.

R mode on older cars is almost useless.

Where are we talking about? Street? Drag strip? Road course? Is there a way to reprogram the older cars?

All 3, but mostly drag and road course.

No way to reprogram it

Not even close... NO ONE on record has broken any part on Lc4 -LC5 with 600whp.

IF you want a real Launch VDC off. Lc4 4100 rpms is smooth as glass on take off.

Its a shame it can not be reprogrammed on the older cars to reduce/increase its thresh holds in R mode. Its useless on a road coarse if you are being agressive at all.

Say what? I track my car 4-5 times a year, and drive it plenty fast on a road course, in R-R-R mode.

Launching it is part of that fast experience I'm talkin about.

I know what you're talking about, but I disagree. I get sub-3s 0-60 times launching in R-R-R mode in my stock '13. Whatever marginal benefit R-R-off gives (if any) isn't worth the trouble.

When you start pushing over 580+ Whp and 580+ wheel torque that little Red "R" on the VDC panel becomes very very annoying. Stock or semi-stock not much difference

+1 It becomes a serious hinderance when you are actually making real power. If your car is a stock 13' you don't need VDC off but beyond that, especially with upgraded turbos the extra slip will make the difference especially when the power you make overpowers your tires.
