ZL1 needs to learn how to drive.

Can be the biggest fanboy in the world but it's clear the ZL1 is a shitty driver. I hate ZL1s but man some ******* really give it a bad name.

Id have to disagree. GM gave the ZL1 a bad name. The car is flat out pathetic man. Not a single bone stock 11 sec pass yet. Hell can probably count on one hand how man sub 12.50 passes there are. The rest are usually between 12.50-13.00. So much for the "GT500 slayer"

There was also a 13 GT500 out there equipped with a GoPro ready to whoop some ZL1 *** but the ZL1 guy refused to run...

Was it even a 6 speed? If it was a Auto thats even less reason to blame the driver.

Sad. It should have more than enough power to pull around a 5.0. How come it seems the ZL's are'nt as quick as the CTS V's?

Lots of variables on those car though, which setting for the ZL, did he do the fuse pull mod? Probably not.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

The V's came out and people were kicking some *** in them. Then the ZL1 came out with 24 more horsepower and, at worst, the same weight as the V's, but they are losing to kids on Huffy White Heat bikes and old ladies falling down spiral staircases.

Yeah? But the ZL1 is the better overall package...you know, like in the twisties and stuff. And creature comforts. And driving nannies. And stuff like that.

Am I right?

I'm right.

Didnt even watch the videos but the ZL1 wasnt not made for the straight line guys. It was made for a road course which i'm certain it would demolish the mustang. Both are nice cars.

If it wasn't made for straight line performance, why does it have launch control? A road course certainly wouldn't require something like that.

Please tell me youre being sarcastic.

Just incase youre not. Tell me why did GM equip the car with LAUNCH CONTROL if it wasnt made to go in a straight line? Dont see much use for that on a road course.

Just found out the ZL1 was an Auto. No excuses for sloppy shifting and it damn sure didnt look like he smoked the tires.

I agree... that was sad! I think the zl1 is a hell of a package and makes a great road racer... but as far as 1/4 mile performance its just crap! Regular SS with headers and a tune will run door to door with them in most cases. Personally I think the new 1LE SS is the way to go, you get a SS with upgraded axles, suspension, better tires and better 3.91 gears. Now add a cam and boltons to that car like I did mine, and its gonna be that much better, without the ZL1 price tage or the 4100lbs.
