It won’t be, “Here’s what we did at the Nurburgring, go figure it out.” The intent would be, you set it up in your garage and save time and money on tune-in day so that you’re close and can just make minor tweaks once you get to the track, and you’re on your way. Hopefully that translates into saving time adjusting your car.

So straight telling you what those settings were would be irrelevant. Teaching you how to set it up makes more sense.
^^THIS makes sense. Where is this interview? Link?

I read that, too.

Sounds eerily similar to what they wanted to share with us as an answer to this question. But we have to wait for the pesky launch/bog and A8 questions to go through........................................... ......

What’s been the take rate on the ZL1 and ZL1 1LE?


We’re exceeding build schedules for both the ZL1 and especially the ZL1 1LE. We thought we’d be at about 1000 units (of the ZL1 1LE), so we have a weekly schedule at the plant that that translates back to. We were going to build a lot early to get them out there. Well, we talked to all of our suppliers and we built a lot early and we’re continuing to build a lot.


I think our communications team did a great job with the way we launched it. Blowing out 13 seconds from the ZL1 to the ZL1 1LE’s Nurburgring time caused a lot of attention. If you dive down to find out why it’s a success, it’s because in the fifth-gen Z/28 we talked about the DSSV (Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve) dampers and how we did a million iterations, and we tuned it perfectly for the best use for you as a customer, and you should just accept that. They told us, “OK, I understand that, but I still want to play with my car at the track,” and we didn’t give them any adjustability.


The difference now, in the DSSV system that’s on the ZL1 1LE we give you the camber adjustment, we give you the ride height adjustment, we give you the understeer/oversteer adjustment on the rear stabilizer bar. We give you that adjustability. We’re about to put out some communication free to our customers on how you set it up, depending on what type of track you’re driving on. We want to help you. If your track is heavy braking or a lot of understeer is required, we’ll help dial it in. It won’t be, “Here’s what we did at the Nurburgring, go figure it out.” The intent would be, you set it up in your garage and save time and money on tune-in day so that you’re close and can just make minor tweaks once you get to the track, and you’re on your way. Hopefully that translates into saving time adjusting your car.

I'm perpetually curious about this one.

Its definitely one of those thats in the 'like to know' category but not a 'need to know'
