You can go about 30-40 degrees rotated out of line it happens so fast, before the traction control catches you. What you also get with the ZL1 is a properly functioning traction control system as well that is more suited to the power.
Great point. At big power levels death can come quickly. With big power even going straight is a challenge for the novice. I have seen that and kissing the wall without injury is a good life lesson.

But wouldn't you agree that going centrifugal or single turbo the HP rush is not so abrupt at low rpms if the HP numbers are sane? This kind of power is more manageable and also is much easier on the drive train.

Just my opinion

Would one of those shift lights help?

Yes! I love mine and it's a 15 minute install. Works best at night. But without it shift with the tach, not the hud. It's seems more accurate, but not as good as a light. A loud beep would be nice. My ETs are much more consistent now. I wish the light could help my 60'.

Have you considered the AGP setup?

Weight is low where the frame basically is, and near the firewall, as opposed to a blower adding the weight up front and high(not good at all for CG).
