Cool video.
yes. If I remeber correctly the ZL1 was the first GM product to actually generate Downforce.

The corvettes have areo package than minimize lift but do not generate downforce. My Z06 felt fairly stable even at 180 or so the fastest I even had the car but that design still generated lift and I was going strait line only. My 2001 mustang GT felt real floaty 150+ so I never drove it there much. the fastest I had the SS on the test drive was 120 but it was less inspiring than my Z06.

The SS just does not have much in the way of aero package. No car out there generates downforce without some kind of aero package installed.
