I daily drove my ZL1 for 3 years. It was great but a few things to consider.

I don't own a Camaro anymore but if I was to buy a gen 5 again it would be a 2012-2013 ZL1. By far the best looking Gen 5. A buddy has a Yellow 2012 ZL1 and it looks so good. The 2014+ rear end never...

Anyone run a 10 second ET on any Gen6 ZL1 yet? How about a mid 10?

Not for at least 30 years and that is not guaranteed a classic.

True story. I tried to save my 2010 (bought in 2009) SS2 Camaro. The car had crazy low miles when I traded it in for my 2013 ZL1....

On your Z06 have you tried Tour for 1/4 mile runs? Lot of the fastest stock runs are in tour. The thought is the softer shock setting allows more weight transfer.

Wonder why GM was so aggressive...

This was the point of the LT4 supercharger. It amazes me that the LT4 has a 10:1 AF ratio but that is important to the choices made included the smaller blower.

Little read about the motor.

I made the jump from a 2013 ZL1 to a 2016 Z06 a few months back.

Z06 is 3550 / 650 hp = 5.46 lb per HP

ZL1 is 4150 / 580 hp = 7.16 lb per HP

To get a ZL1 to the same power to weight = 760 HP...

Stock C7 w/ LT1 = 3347

Z06 w/LT4 = 3523

So a difference of 176 lbs

The ZL1 has all the features of the SS2.

SS1 = 3672
