Love at First Launch

I've had a hard time getting traction with all the power of my 2013 ZL1 Convertible. The Good Year F1 Eagles bite pretty good in 80 to 90 degree temperatures but they break loose like crazy at 50 degrees. I've been practicing my hole shots and they have been to inconsistent for me to be comfortable with. Last night the temperature was 60 degrees and I tried the Launch Control feature for the first time. It was Love at First Launch. The car came out straight and fast like a rocket with minimal wheel spin. I hope I get the same results as the temperatures get colder. It's really nice to race in the Fall.

Regards,

Be very carefull with the stock tires in colder weather. they are SUMMER tires, and are not meant to be driven on when temps drop below 40 degrees F.
You're not supposed to even STORE them in temps below 20 degrees F.
I take mine off and store them in my basement for th ewinter months after I put on a set of aftermarket wheels and tires I kept for just this purpose.
