What G's have you seen on your Z?

There is a short twisty road by my house that I've blast through and hit 1.03 g's according to the HUD display. I wasn't even going that fast, but man did it feel good. What impressed me the most was how planted the and connected the car felt even through the bumpy part of the road. I also like how the HUD holds the number for a second as you exit the turn. Anyone else?

I love that meter... but it sure pisses my wife off.

Don't think I've hit one yet but I'll get there soon.

When I remember to look the highest that I have seen is .89 but there could have been higher. I wish there was a way to recall it or a series of turns.

The meter in the CTS-V remembers the highest level achieved and it can be called up until it is manually reset.
I know the ZL1 will have no trouble topping these readings!



Best regards,

Elie

I wish there was a way to see the highest.

On an off ramp, I pulled 1.11 G's in a left hander

I was impressed with it to say the least. It wasn't even close to letting loose. I need to get on the road and do it again.

1.34 on an on ramp. It was amazing. The car stuck to the road like crazy. It got a little loose at the bottom but stabilitrak kept her in line and she cranked that corner nicely. I'm still smiling from it. I absolutely love this car.

Took a twisty Cty Highway today in Northern Wis., I didn't realize there was a meter for G's (will review the manual tonight), or I may of pushed harder. I did have PTM on at level 3 and could literally feel the rear end of the car lower and grab the road a number of times. Love this car, never did driving feel so exciting. Great news is, Wis., is full of twisty - rustic roads that are well paved and maintained.
