Does ZL1 use an 8-rib or 10-rib belt?

that's a good one.

Disappointing about the manual shift speeds, but what can you do.

That didn't phase me a bit as I would never use it anyway unless it's just for fun to hold a gear. But yes, a great review.

Hell you don't need to use the paddles to hold a gear, this thing will do it for you once it knows what your doing. Pretty impressive and I can't wait to drive it. Just hope we don't have any issues with it as I hate to take my cars to dealers as they seem to screw more things up than fix in my past experience. I still would like to know what's up with the slight pause after launch in some of the videos at about 3000 rpm.

Great Review, Great car ! It just needs to be 1 inch lower... front looks too high with all those aero treatments.. Since I am already used to going sideways up all the driveways, I would like to see a lower Zl1... I know I am probably in the minority, but, I love a more slammed look.

Updated the OP.

Great to read such impressive comparisons...."Z06 with four seats"....."GT350 with 130 more hp"
