So in the ZL1 you will floor the gas pedal and use the clutch and upshift like normal but keep your right foot down, don't lift! (Hence "NO LIFT" shift)
I can chirp 2nd and 3rd in my car and I don't have "no lift shift", or the power of the ZL1. I don't think that him chirping 2nd gear in a 580hp car necessarily means he used that feature.
