So if you're patient enough to wait for the tires towarm up, at least you won't lose traction in third.... If you go about 2000 rpm and accelerate strongly to 4000rpm in second gear, you will lose traction for about 2-3 seconds. It is extremely powerful. I love it. Remember, this is in mode 2, going below 4000rpm. I can't imagine what it does in mode 5 at full throttle.

I am impressed with how good the ride is in a car like this. It absorbs the road imperfections pretty good and once the tires are warmer(it's still in the 50's here), it glues to the road very well. You can easily drive it with one hand which is great. It inspiresalotof confidence . You just need to be patient and learn more about its character before you push it.

I guess it is true the delay was that they flashed a new tune to make it more GT500 like so people won`t be complaining it doesn`t feel fast enough
congrats Mr.R

Don't worry about 11mpg! Anyone buying a ZL1 isn't thinking about fuel economy but power and road racing.

Only 40 miles, didn't get a chance to wash it but you managed to install the Radar Detector.

Number 391 is home! Wow what a ride! I just happened to be at the dealers when the transport truck arrived this morning.

I/we put 140 miles on it today. In "tour" the ride is much smoother than a SS ride. I went to register for a class at the community college 25 miles away and averaged 20.8 mpg there and back on the interstate.

Is it my imagination or does the top 1/4" of the carbon metallic panel on each door have a faint "glow in the dark"? The intensity went up and down with the dash lights by turning the knob.

The exposed carbon fiber insert on the hood is fantastic. Now i just need time for a good wax job.
