GM has added this same fix to 3 or 4 different areas of the wiring on our cars. Anytime the car is brought to the dealer, they are supposed to add the conduit and protective tape to any of these...

From everything I've read, valet and teen mode do not reduce power. Would be cool if they did.

Were you running front runners too or the stock wheels and tires. I've been told that skinnies up front will help, so I'm curious.

I agree. For some reason it multiplies significantly with my 17" drag radials. Their super soft and taller sidewalls adds to it, I'm sure. Would solid bushings or the lockouts cure it? I'd...

2400 will not work with the stock tires. You'll likely want around 1200 and 12% slip, but you just have to play with it, because it will vary with the amount of grip you are getting.

I have Race Star 17x10.5 with a 7 inch backspace for my ZL1, everything stock, and I'm pretty sure the SS has smaller brakes. Hope that helps.

The 40% is how much the diff is locked. The green/red bar is percent of wheel slip. It is partly based on the rotation of the front tires in relation to the rears.
