I remember the day the first numbers were posted up. Lot's of people crying foul and OMG 12.1 ahhhh. I do recall stating that a good driver getting it to hook up from a dead stop (rather than the roll)would be sub 12. This video proves that it will do sub 12 1/4 right off the delivery truck. ENJOY , RINSE & REPEAT.

Yessir, ZL1 comes with no-lift shift...awesome feature as I something similar on my trackbike (2006 R6) and it makes up shifting way quicker; no clutch needed on the bike Just keep it pinned and shift away I just watched the video again and he definitely uses the "NO LIFT SHIFT" feature in the 2nd run as you hear the tires chirp when he shifts to 2nd gear...that sound signifies he's powershifting (fortunately GM designed the feature to be used under warranty) & it basically keeps the torque built up in between shifts so you don't lose power. So in the ZL1 you will floor the gas pedal and use the clutch and upshift like normal but keep your right foot down, don't lift! (Hence "NO LIFT" shift)

Google the feature or read some of the ZL1 reviews on this site again in case you missed it!

i love the fact that the word warranty comes up so often in a performance car= beat the pee out of it and it still covered. GM finally got it right between the technology, power, and warranty this thing is a beast.

I can chirp 2nd and 3rd in my car and I don't have "no lift shift", or the power of the ZL1. I don't think that him chirping 2nd gear in a 580hp car necessarily means he used that feature.

Good find! The times are really good considering this track is at 3,000 feet elevation.

SUB 12.'s easy. Tires = 11.5 knock knock knocking on the door! Maybe 11.4?? Good tree, good air pressure. The ZL1 deserves a "real" track day... with the AUTO and FLUFFY TIRES; Please don't take out the rear seat or install a roll cage. Not needed til it hits 10.5. :respect:

OK my forecast : 2012 ZL1 Auto = 11.5 (w/drag tires on each) Otherwise... all stock components.

Yes we haven't seen a good vid of the ZL1 on a VHT prepped track with a good 60 foot time which is all important to a good ET. The horsepower is good for mid 11's based on the 118 mph speeds. It all depends on how it gets going off the line to post an 11's run. It will need a 1.65 ish 60 foot to run mid 11's. It seems the all important 60 foot time is never mentioned. A small correction to your post is that the cut off time for a roll bar is 11.49 and cage is 9.99 in NHRA rules.

Great video. I projected an 11.78 several months ago. Based on the advertised HP & weight. Looks like that maybe close. Now mod it, and we should see some 10s.

I believe that runs at mode 4 and with PTM turned completely off were performed. It was stated the mode 5 is designed for a VHT prepped track, which Inde did not have.

This video gave me a sigh of relief, but anyone who owns a Camaro SS knew mid to high 12s were wrong and very slow for a car with these credentials. Most of us guessed about right earlier when we believed sub 12 second runs would be easy. What I don't understand in this thread is why anyone including Ford guys would criticize the video using words like false (post 12)! I would think everyone would celebrate, if only because you're a car guy or gal regardless of the logo on the hood!!

What 'Bear said.

I'm trying to find if there is an "OFF" function for PTM. I believe the Reviewer said that he ran without it, and that he launched just over 2000 RPMs for a faster, but not as consistant time. Maybe he just meant Mode 4...

That was a good review. I think the numbers are pretty dang good!

Anyone else notice that it was very quiet in the cabin? I wonder if the in cabin volume edited down.

are you saying that we can't speed shift or "no-lift shift" with the 2010 cars? There is a rev limiter so i assumed it was no problem. I have only had mine a couple weeks and have not been very hard on it yet. Thanks for any help.

If you read the review in Road & Track, you'll see CAMARO is quieter than Godzilla Quieter than a supercar? Nice

I think there is something in NLS that is more "gentle" and doesn't completely limit acceleration, like the limiter. That's a question I have, too, though, because I can't find real information from GM on it yet...
