Cool CAMARO ZL1 ADDED TO CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE DRAG DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. Runs 10.00 1/4 mi

CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE DRAG DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM ADDS CAMARO ZL1
TARGETED ENHANCEMENTS ENABLE 10-SECOND QUARTER-MILE ELAPSED TIMES


2017-10-30

The Chevrolet Performance Camaro Drag Race Development Program takes another step forward with the addition of the Camaro ZL1, which has run a best 10.000-second quarter-mile ET at 137.78 mph during official testing, along with a 1.415-second 60-foot time.

Launched in the spring of 2016 with Camaro SS and announced at last year’s SEMA Show, the Drag Development program explores the capability of the sixth-generation Camaro on the drag strip through targeted performance, chassis and safety enhancements, including concept high-performance parts designed to improve launch and traction attributes. Building on lessons learned from the Camaro SS drag development program, the team is evaluating several "bolt-on" features and calibrations for the Camaro ZL1, with plans to continue testing in 2018 and evaluate a portfolio of products to be released through Chevrolet Performance.

For the Camaro ZL1 development vehicle, achieving the 10-second quarter-mile ET was driven by power-enhancing components that helped push its supercharged LT4 engine past the 700-horsepower threshold, while drag-focused calibrations for the electronic limited-slip differential and magnetic ride control systems helped the car launch more effectively. A rear small brake package and solid rear cradle mounts are among the additional components used in testing that are now available for sale.

CAMARO ZL1 PRODUCTION-BASED FEATURES
  • LT4 supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine
  • Available 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Dual-mode exhaust system
  • Electronic limited-slip rear differential (eLSD)
  • 2.85 final drive ratio
  • Performance Traction Management
  • Drive Mode Selector
  • Available Performance Data Recorder

DRAG DEVELOPMENT CONCEPT FEATURES
  • Cold air intake system
  • Larger throttle body
  • Smaller-diameter supercharger pulley
  • 110-octane calibration
  • Magnetic ride control calibration
  • Transmission calibration
  • eLSD calibration
  • Racing tires
  • Racing driver’s seat with five-point harness
  • Roll cage

CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE DRAG DEVELOPMENT COMPONENTS
  • Solid cradle bushings (ZL1 1LE-spec), part number 84341929
  • Rear small brake system, part number 84396515

CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE OFFICIALLY LICENSED PARTS
  • American Racing Headers long-tube headers, part number CAV8-16178300LSNC
  • WELD Racing 16 x 10-inch rear wheels, part number 88B-61058-GM

A complete list of Camaro SS Drag Development now available from Chevrolet Performance is available at ChevySEMA.com.

The Camaro ZL1 Drag Development concept joins approximately 20 additional Chevrolet models this week at the SEMA Show, Oct. 31-Nov. 3.

I wonder if these components could be put on by a GM dealer and still maintain warranty.....

According to them you will keep your warranty.

It would be nice if the drag specific MR cal would be available for the regular SS. I am sure they could control the launch better if they tried.

I may have missed it somewhere, but when is this supposed to be available? I'd be all over it

Ugh, I know I'm a pessimist, but now I can't help but think it is even more intentional in the '17s with a pay to play unlock.

The site doesn't recognize the mobile version of youtube, just the regular old browser version.

Links should look like this:
youtube.com/watch?v=random gibberish video ID

Just post a link like that and it will auto-embed.

The other way that I think still works involves using 'u2b' tags. In your post, type [u2b]random gibberish video ID[/ u2b] but you have to take out the space between the '/' and the 'u2b' (if I left the space in, the site would tried to embed that rather than displaying it)

skip to 7:40 for the "keep your warranty" statement.

27:00 to see the A10 ZL1 with the new performance mods launch.

Really GM? You couldn’t squeeze out that extra .001?
I’m sure it was for NHRA compliance or something so this thing will probably actually do 9’s. It’s like hp ratings of the late 60’s early 70’s

Did GM ever release the SS parts from Drag Development? It's been forever since they were announced.
