For those who are whinning/complaining about the ZL-1 times, STOP .

Now that certain companies got their hands on the ZL-1. Those companies have began dynoing. I see people complaining/whinning about the low #'s.

Did GM want this car to have straight line performance or have all around performance. When you get your answer then ask yourself, what other vehicle out there can you get with the pricing of the ZL-1 with that same type of performance.

Yeah, I would have to agree. If GM didn't build an all around car, they would have left one group out.

If guys want the strait line performnace, get the COPO car.

Once more seat time and more people have the car the times will come down. People are just freaking out all the waiting has made people crazy.

It's quick and powerful enough for me. To me it's just a thing of beauty and the rest is just icing on the cake.. Will probably never be ran to its full potential as long as I have it...I have a 9 year old son, my only child and when he is responsible enough to have it, It will be his..I'll put 6 or7 thousand miles on it a year til it's paid for then cover it and store it for him...but will occasionally start and drive it for obvious reasons....that was my intension for my 2ss til my wife got t-boned in it..yes it's been fixed but will never be the same to me...so I'm starting over, hopefully it don't happen again...

Use common damn sense. Stop bitching. There is way too much jackassery going around.

People can complain all they want. That's ok. Those who are doing the complaining are not in the market to purchase one. I did. This car is over the top in so many ways. It's a multi dimentional street legal race car with a warranty unlike any other in my opinion. If you want to mod it the sky's the limit. It's a mean go getter and a bad motor scooter. Just get your hands on one and drive it. Nay sayers will become believers. I am thrilled beyond words.

I was reading the manual today. This is truely a road course car. Wait until we get race track feedback from the guys getting automatic transmissions. The computer with the automatic version under race conditions takes all parameters into consideration at any given time, and will keep the car in the correct gear to allow maximum acceleration in that particular situation. The technology is second to none in my mind by what the manual doctrine says. Pretty amazing stuff...!

I would not take any track times seriously until the car has been properly broken in -- (see my post about that....)
