In my opinion, the supercharger in the ZL1 needs to be bumped up to what the 2013 Mustang GT carries or simular size!

The Camaro ZL1 and 1LE vehicles come standard equipped with 285/35ZR20 & 305/35ZR20 Goodyear F1 Supercar G2 D.O.T. approved ultra high performance summer tires with track capability.

Goodyear F1 Supercar Performance tires are a summer season tire and are not intended to be driven on snow, ice, or road surfaces below -7° C (20° F).

If the ambient temperature in your location is at or below -7° C (20° F), DO NOT MOVE THIS VEHICLE. The rubber used in these tires loses flexibility and may develop surface cracks in the tire tread/shoulder area at colder temperatures. Tire movement, when the temperature is below -7° C (20° F), may result in surface crack in the tread area of the tire. A surface crack on a tire is cosmetic and will not result in a loss of air

Example of a tire with a surface crack.
Attachment 465943




Special tread and compound used on these performance tires will cause a decrease in performance in cold climates, heavy rain, and standing water.

Driving on wet roads, in heavy rain, or through standing water with Summer Season Performance tires may result in hydroplaning and loss of vehicle control.

Driving with Summer Season Performance Tires on snow, ice, or cold road surfaces can cause loss of control or an accident

Refer to service bulletin 04-03-10-013G: Driving Characteristics of Rear Wheel Drive Vehicles and Available Winter Tires for further information on available winter tires.

Tire Storage

It is recommended for these tires to be stored indoors at temperatures above 20 deg F (-7 deg C) when not in use. If the tires have been subject to 20 deg F (-7 deg C) or less, let them warm up in a heated space to at least 40 deg F for 24 hours or more before installation or driving the vehicle. Inflate the tires only after they have been warmed above 40 deg F (5 deg C). Do not place tires near heaters or heating devices used to warm the room where the tires are stored. Do not apply heat or blow heated air directly on the tires. Always inspect tires before use after storage periods.
Where would I find a copy of this bulletin? 04-03-10-013G. Thanks.

Thank you very much for this thread! I just went out to the garage and noticed my ZL1 still has the spacers in the springs and the outer valance panels are missing. Hopefully there's no damage from the spacers being in the car for a few hundred miles.

I plan on taking it back to the dealer in the morning to get this stuff corrected.

The parts guy was looking at the wrong diagram. They were able to find it (with my help and the pic from this thread) and got a set ordered.

The stance looks sooooo much better with the spacers removed.

Good deal. Work those parts guys.

Weight transfer for drag racing will suffer from spacer removal.

My Dealer also left the spacers in and did not put on the front valances for the splitter. I showed the service dept this (Service Information 2012 Chevrolet Camaro | Camaro (VIN F) Service Manual | Document ID: 2756086). He said that it came on the 2012 not the 2013. Talked to GM customer serv., they say 2013 ZL1 did not come with them. Been a week and a half with no results, still taking not no for an answer!

Mine has them on my 2013 ZL1 Vert, if you're referring to the small 'winglets' that mount underneath the front splitter at each front corner.
As a matter of fact, they are Part # 22757643 according to my invoice when I had them replaced.

Missing outer valance panels 22757643

Just bought a new ZL1 last Friday and thanks to this forum found that they left the front spacers in and also forgot the outer valance panels. I took the spacers out but am having a hard time getting the dealership to order the outer valance panels (in front of the wheels) they claim to be clueless. I have called chevy customer service and verified that the car comes with the panels and have communicated this to the dealership and met with the parts department manager, but they are just overwhelmed. Its a small dealership with a very small staff and does not do a lot of volume.

Any ideas before I just order them online and give up? I have given them the parts number and they still claim that the ZL1 does not come with them and can not find the part.

Thanks

They are looking at the wrong diagram. Tell the parts counter to pull up the diagram that shows the front fender liners. You can clearly see the outer valance with two screws. My dealer tried to tell me the same thing. BTW, the part number is for both valances and 4 screws. It's a kit.

Don't let them push it back on you and don't pay for them yourself. They should have been installed on the car and someone along the way messed up. The dealer should be held accountable.

Thank you so much for the input. The dealership has been really good but has just dug their heels in on this. I am waiting on a call back from chevy customer service as I have told them I want a field rep or someone who is in this region to call me back and help the dealer order these or show them how to order. Thanks for the diagram.

Been away for a while, glad to see the dealer finally made good on this for you.

Just wanted to confirm, to any new ZL1 owners as we recently had our first 2014 ZL1 arrive, they are still shipped with spring spacers installed, and the valance panels were packaged in the trunk along with the floor mats.

A few pictures, along with the notice to remove the spacers, and the warning tag advising against the use of an automatic car wash, as wheel damage can occur.

Valance panel package...

This label is placed on the drivers window, to remind the carrier of low ground clearance, and to remind the PDI tech to remove the spring spacers.

These were never installed on my car and I just spoke with the dealership today. They are going to look into it and order me a new set if they can't find them. I should know something the first part of next week. Thanks for the information as I would have never known / paid attention to it.

Dealers should inform buyers about initial speeds.

Great information, to bad the dealers don't inform the buyers of the limited speed and rpm's; or could it be THEY (the salesmen) are uniformed. When I test drove mine on I-95 he told me it was okay to nail it, I did up to 120. Hope I haven't FUBAR'd the engine. I was going to take it to Homestead for a track day on the 28th, now that will be unfortunately placed on hold. As for the spring spacers I only have one in my trunk. Go figure.

Gunny,

I wouldn't worry about it. I exceeded the 80 mph mark several times always unintentional with no ill effect. I would use the track day to actually break the car in.

Many thanks to the OP for this thread. I wondered why the front end of my 2014 seemed so high, and why I had to adjust the headlights immediately after buying a new car. The dealer I bought from (one of the largest dealers in Houston) failed to remove the spacers, but at least they did install the valances. I had actually seen the spacers when washing the car a few days ago, but figured they must have been there for a reason or they wouldn't be there.

Thanks again
