The thing is, you may need to update your flash player to the latest version if you're already using Firefox. Updating the whole thing will take care of that.

There is also an excellent free media player called VLC. Plays lots of stuff that Windows Media Player chokes on.


Hope that helps.

Thanks for the videos you posted ShnOmac - they work for me.


Scarrzz - I was using IE and downloaded Firefox which also didn't work. I'm calling it a work related PC issue.

This wasn’t the right car for the Z28 name. In the opinion of most, Z28 should be a lighter weight (probably naturally aspirated) car focused on track performance - for example, a car with more horsepower than SS but equal or lighter in weight with superior suspension at a cost between SS and what ZL1 will be. ZL1 is heavier and supercharged and not really in line with the Z28 name. The Z28 should also be cheaper than what the ZL1 will cost. ZL1 – competitor to GT500; Z28 – competitor to Boss 302. The ZL1 name just fit this car.

IMO if GM had released the Z28 first, everyone would automatically compare it to the GT500 anyway and call it a failure asking if that was the best GM could do to compete with the GT500. GM had to release the ‘big dog’ first to end all speculation. Now if they release Z28 it will be icing on the cake.

The in-car vid is the best. I've watched them both at least half a dozen times each, and I'm still getting chill bumps.

Daddee wants to drive ZL1 ... NAO !

If you really want one soon, better commit now. They will in ALL likelihood have the first allocation sold before it gets there & you'll have to wait until all the sold orders are filled before a test drive.

Totally up to you, but fair warning.

I'm in a hurry to get behind this wheel.

Thanks for all of the Birthday wishes from everyone. It has been a good day. Tons of new ZL1 information and videos. Booked a flight to LA to see the ZL1 at the OC Auto Show and get to spend some time with my youngest daughter. Waiting for Fbodfather to deliver my ZL1. Going to dinner with my wife and catch a 7:00am flight tomorrow morning. Great Birthday so far.

It wasn't the transporter that they were hiding in the previous video, it was the new cadillac ATS sedan they were testing instead.

Umm. This car does things that just aren't humanly possible!!!

My Jaw muscles hurt, I have cold chills, and my arm hair is standing up all within 3mins.

If just a video affects me this much I think I might die from sensory overload before the odometer hits 100.

I'm more into brute force acceleration than handling, so the first vid I watched was the launch development, but honestly, I thought the handling one was even more impressive.

When I saw what the G-meter was reading I was just ........Pretty unbelievable numbers for a car which will more than likely weigh in at 4,000lbs or more.

My reaction to those videos was similar to when I saw the concept "unveiling" on the internet and again when I finally saw it in person at the Kansas City Car Show...........the hair on the back of my neck stood up, I felt goosebumps on my arms and my eyes "misted" a bit.

Exactly! I'm no professional race car driver, but I've been "around the block" a few times as the saying goes. The in car footage was astounding. I could actually "feel" the car being pushed through it's paces as if I was there controlling it, from a litteral hands on perspective. It handles all the forces of physics amazingly well. One can't fully appreciate whats going on there if you haven't done some competition racing or high speed driving. I am still all worked up from viewing the footage and my thoughts are pre-occupied with this car!.

Yeah, I'm wondering what kind of skidpad numbers we'll be "grabbing."

The way this beasty sticks to the road is phenomenal, and those vids include a passenger & a couple of hundred pounds of test equipment. Just think about that.

I think the third gen Magnetorheologicalwhaddayamacallit is going to make this Camaro insanely quick around curves.
