Cool Dept. 180 - Camaro ZL1 Track Testing (24 hours of Testing on Milford Proving Grounds)


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE.


Not sure if this has been posted, but saw a sweet video of the ZL1 going through track testing. Video goes over the different suspension modes that come on the car. Check it out!

From ZL1 Official Details Thread:

Five PTM performance levels or modes are available to accommodate the given ambient and track conditions, driver experience/vehicle familiarity and driver comfort levels. They include:
Mode 1 – Traction control set for wet conditions, with stability control on and Magnetic Ride Control set on Tour.
Mode 2 – Traction control set for dry conditions, with stability control on and Magnetic Ride Control set on Tour.
Mode 3 – Traction control set on Sport 1, with stability control on and Magnetic Ride Control set on Sport.
Mode 4 – Traction control set on Sport 2, with stability control off and Magnetic Ride Control set on Sport.
Mode 5 – Traction control set on Race, with stability control off and Magnetic Ride Control set on Track. Launch control tuned for VHT-prepped drag strips.

I'm loving the new colors they are showing, I wasn't a fan of the SIM until now. That IBM looks pretty sick too. I might have to change my mind about dropping all my extra cash into my SS.

Chevrolet is very serious about being track ready and it shows in the expanded testing in the video. I did notice a very aggressive almost slick like tread pattern. Could these be ZL1 Camaro specific tires????
