Post Best video yet

This is hands down the best high overview videos produced yet. I like they simplistic yet informative dialog style that is being used. I gives you just enough information to pique your interest and then refers you to the owners manual.

GOOD JOB GM

I didn't get videos with my SS.

I'm gonna start a thread and complain.





Joking of course BUT every time I read up on the ZL1 I get a little less excited about keeping my car.

Not really.

Yes really.

lol

No not really.

maybe a little.

Not really.

Anybody else notice the front left tire was pretty low (PSI) compared to the other three?

The ZL1 videos affectionately remind me of this (the similarities are downright eery!):



Seriously guys, good luck with your ZL1's.

It is one freaking awesome machine.

I wasn't posting it as a "yet unseen" video, so it's not an actual "repost".

I was just pointing out amusing similarities of concept between it and Chevy's new ZL1 vids.

Thanks for keeping an eye out though!

Are there ZL1 specific manuals that should have come with my car? My Ford Raptor came with 2 that were written just for the Raptor. I was a bit surprised when I got home and just had the standard Camaro manuals.

Yes I agree with you on the fully deepressed throttle and shifting. It's second nature to lift off the gas for a "second" when shifting, it will be Interesting getting used to after the break in time.

I find those videos very informative ... I drive a 2011 SS, the tap shift modes in the ZL1 are similar to the SS, I learned about them through these videos though!

Skip shift eliminator

Does anyone know if a skip shift eliminator will work on a 2013 ZL1?

It worked great on my 2011 2SS Camaro, but I have a different beast.

Not really a problem--just curious! Manual tranny on both cars.

Did you get some info, yet? I've seen it mentioned a few times on here. The typical vendors have them.

My 11 SS did, I haven't had the chance to try it on the 13 ZL1 Vert yet, but I would assume it does.

Why 1st VIDEO has been redacted to PRIVATE??

Was it due to possible references to racing activities being covered under warranty that they did not want floating around?

I am only guessing, for sure, but does anyone know what happened and why?
