The Z/28 knows when it's airborne.

Quotes from the Edmunds review:

-"When you jump the car, ride height sensors on the suspension tell the Z/28 to dial back the throttle so it doesn't overpower the tires when it touches back down," explains GM's Mark Stielow, engineer and in-house hotshoe.

Who' wants to try it?

-''The 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28's potency is heavily rooted in its R-compound tires. These ultra-sticky Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires sized 305/30ZR19 all around are optimized for dry track conditions, and that's about it. They're street-legal in the same way that wearing banana-sling underwear in public is legal. You can do it, but it's probably not a good idea.''

That's funny.

Here's all I got. Never could get more than two off at once -- but, when it happens, it sure feels like you're airborne...

...like a speed boat jumping over the crest of a wave....reeling it back in by itself is awesome. I'm in for that, not that we will ever see it on the street, or on most road courses, but that is a cool feature.
