Post ZL1 Owner Welcome Videos and Owners Manual Videos

Per fbodfather:

Quote:
Good morning, Camaro Comrades and Firebird Friends!

Much has been written about what is, without question, the best Camaro ever - the new ZL1.

The new ZL1 delivers supercar levels of performance while providing the best handling - most advanced - best riding and most refined Camaro ever.

However, you don't have to take our word for it - simply ask any owner of a new ZL1 what they think!

Below, you'll find links to 'ZL1 Owner Welcome Videos' - -in the next two weeks, these will be available to customers on the "My Chevy App" and at "Chevy.com" under 'Owner Manuals and Video.'

Cool stuff, I guess the top speed, best lap, avg speed, avg lap, and lap time history features will help dispell any doubts people still might have about Chevy having issues with this beast being on a track.

How many times will I view these before mine arrives? Numerous. I think I already have the owners manual memorized.

glad they made these videos cuz I hate reading

I also confirmed today that the "no lift" upshift on manual transmission are independent of PTM modes...meaning you DO NOT need to be in PTM mode 1-5 in order to utilize the "no lift" shifts...you just need to be shifting at full throttle (past 5,500RPM)

I was wondering is the 2013 ZL1 going to have more or the same horsepower? What do you think the ZL1 will be worth down the road?
