Thumbs down

Sounds like a missed shift in the Z06 right pass the starting line and it doesn't sound like either did the no lift shift. Could have been done much better.

Someone needs to Man up and take their Manual Gen6 ZL1 down the track for some shakedown runs. The air is great right now across the country. I'm sure break-in period is over for most. Trap speed will tell us everything. I'm thinking 123-125 bone stock.

Is it just me, or did the ZL1 look better than the C7Z at almost every angle in this Vid??
It's not just you. I think it looks better too. Especially from the front at the angle they were filming. It really shows how the fenders have been widened on the Camaro for the ZL1.

Missed shift, traction control, or maybe a lift from John's comments about how the Vette kept spinning on take off.

To me what kills the C7 is those stupid Alice Cooper tailights.

LOL Yeah you have completely lost your mind Man. Can't wait to see your track times.

Very excited about this new ZL1 from what I've been seeing the last couple of weeks. The A10 will be an absolute Monster modded if the new tranny can take it.

This!! I was just comparing the both of them while facing the camera. I think the ZL1 looks more menacing. Just overall better.

In that video the z06 clearly missed a shift. This is a false representation of what will actually happe. Its nothing more then a tool used for him to sell parts. Now the auto may shakes things up but we'll have to wait and see....

The driver of the Z06 missed that gear shift. Having said that. With both drivers being equal. Same race. The Z06 pulls by 2 cars. Other than that, super impressed with the Zl1. That race comes down to weight and maybe some gearing differences. For the price of the Zl1, to me, the best bargain of the decade. $63k? Insane price point for what you get.

Lol! That's a good way to describe them. I was really hoping they would make them like the concept car we saw in one of the Transformer movies. I like the vent idea but not crazy about the plastic used for them.

Just look at the ZL1 vs Z06! Man both are great machines but the ZL1 just takes the cake and eats it too!

Love it!
