Chevrolet Performance Offers Exclusive Drag Race Calibration for Camaro ZL1

Continuous drag strip development combined with the pursuit of perfection have pushed our Camaro engineers to develop an eLSD calibration for 2017+ Camaro ZL1 models that enables more consistent burnout performance for improved drag strip launches. This exclusive calibration doubles the differential coupling torque during burnout and drag launch scenarios by increasing the pressure applied to the clutch pack in order to prevent relative slip between the clutch plates. As a result, burnouts warm both tires evenly which is essential for a straight launch. Dealer install only. Will not void the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
