Interesting how he ends the article with the term happy ending, which is also the term for an "extra service" that supposedly goes on in massage rooms and spas.

At the beginning he mentions the photos shoot like a 'massage'.

in the video on the first page, he says "[the camaro has] magnetic dampers taken from the ZR1 corvette" .. followed by "improved electrical steering"

what does he mean by the magnetic dampers and can the handling really be that much better?

Door locks are now on the door? What's the button below the flashers where the door lock used to be?

The Magnetic Ride Control features shocks that have what are essentially metal filings (I'm over-simplifying...) suspended in the shock fluid. When an electric current is applied to the fluid in the shock, the filings move at a certain speed (so-to-speak). Changing the amount of current applied to the shocks changes the speed the filings move, thereby changing the effective thickness of the shock fluid. These changes in viscocity will allow the shock to move at different rates (i.e. faster and slower). A computer actually measures the speed the suspension moves at each tire, and can change the viscocity (thickness) of the fluid in each shock to make them harder or softer and keep the tires planted on the road more effectively. Keeping the tires planted will allow more friction which will create more traction which makes the car handle better. In addition, different settings can be computed into the computer, so you can make the front shocks "looser" in the front and "harder" in the rear for drag racing and weight transfer, or tune them for general comfort for the street, and more aggressive for track driving.

It is a lot more complicated than that, but I'm simplified it to as much as I understand it. MRC WILL make ZL1 handle better Look at what it did in Z07 package for Z06 (along with the other improvements it adds on top of a "standard" Z'oh).

I don't know if you've riden in a car with adjustable struts, springs, sway bars and the like, but if you haven't, I'd encourage you to; then I think you'll have a better answer to your last question

so are they gonna make it with an auto or what? why make a great car like this & only make it in manual? it doesnt make sense to me GM if you wanna sell a shitload of ZL1s make a lot of autos & manuals,let the customers decide on what trans they want dont just offer one transmission & be done with it give us the option to choose
