I think the next step is getting this question to appear on the next poll. Then we vote and hopefully this question will be presented to Al and his team.

I'm really hoping that the Camaro team sees how many different people are experiencing this problem, and they take an interest in fixing it.

The unfortunate truth is we aren't going to get anywhere with the dealers on this, and we all know it. We're all at the mercy of Al and his team, and right now this thread is just about our only hope.

My car ran 11.00@126.5. That’s a 1.71 60 foot that on my log launched at 80 percent throttle then at 12 mph closed it down to 30 percent all nanny’s off killed my 60 foot and mph on the other end as it slowly gave throttle back in and never went full as was cool out so was already restricting power. I have multiple logs on the car and see it in the tune at 30 mph it takes a dump on power too so not just the launch either.

If the car didn’t feel lazy I don’t think any one would be complaining. But it doesn’t drive right m6 cars and a10 you can feel it pulling power so car never has a linear feel when excellerating. Which is again GM too conservative on this car as seen plenty of z06 cut 1.50 60 foots on Tires and when I cut my 1.71 it didn’t spin and I was on the floor that’s all it had at that moment. The car will mph better in the quarter when it is spinning the tires slightly as it’s not chopping the throttle and slowing giving it back. 11.40 in the heat on a slick track 1.89 spinning 60 foot but 129 mph. 11.00 cool weather would expect a better mph but 1.71 and power chop killed it.

Drivertraim is a beast so let it use it. I am to the point if offered a hot tune but took off 3 years of powertrain warranty I would be all over it. So there is my rant being an avid drag racer that WILL also road race the car and why I got this car and not one more decicated to straight line performance only.
+100

Its also insulting that now;

1) GM is FULLY supporting AND IMPROVING the ZL1 A10-Based Drag Race Performance Program and;

2) GM took the same LT4, installed a 25% larger Blower, CHANGED THE TUNE ETC and uses it touting the Fastest 2019 ZR1 Corvette.

And GM wonders why Class-Action lawsuits arise.

ALL THE ZL1-1LE M6 OWNERS WANT IS EXTREME TRACK PERFORMANCE AS REPRESENTED BY THE ZL1 1LE GM MEDIA.

Hey Bueller,............can you help?

Here's our chance guys.. PLEASE VOTE!

Don't assume that this topic will be selected. This poll has a few popular questions.

Surely the M6 Z06 would have similar warranty/drivetrain protection concerns, and that car clearly does not have the same problem.

The fact that the A10 runs the 1/4 mile almost a second faster is also a pretty good indication of a problem. Wouldn't GM want to protect the A10's drivetrain too?

Obviously the A10 is expected to perform much better on the strip, but come on. The difference between these two configurations is excessive. A good driver with an A8 SS will consistently beat an excellent driver with the M6 ZL1 on the strip. And that's with nearly 200 less horsepower!!

Also, in order for this to truly be a beneficial drivetrain protection mechanism at work, it'd need to somehow reduce the shock on the drivetrain when the clutch is released. However, this isn't what happens. The clutch is released, the surge of power passes from the engine to the wheels and THEN the engine boggs. At this point the damage is done.

IMO, the "bogging" happens when the car is trying to help the driver maintain control. Unfortunately, it's tuned poorly. I believe the fact that GM is using a PERCENTAGE for their wheel slip metric is working against them at very low speeds...AKA when launch control is needed most. Also, the car seems quick to remove power. When it removes power, it removes too much... And then, it's very slow to give the power back.

Sorry for the rant, but I don't believe for a minute this was intentional. If it were intentional GM's advertised 1/4 mile time for the car would be calculated accordingly. In its current configuration, it's nearly impossible to achieve the advertised 11.8 in the M6 ZL1.
Questions:

Can a tuner eliminate the bog?

Does it bog if NOT using launch control, with stabilitrak off? This is supposed to turn off all of the nannies.

Yes and no... The torque management coefficients aren't easy to tune. It can be done, but there aren't many tuners who can do it correctly.

Yes. Torque management is always active.

I have a 2018 with 2,100mi on it that has bogged since day one so the rumor that it was fixed for the 2018 is completely false.

Hmmm...I think we’d need find out what tuners out there know how to get around torque management. Anyone know a tuner who can handle this? While I would love to sit and wait for GM to create a fix, I would not hold our collective breaths. Not gonna happen and I do (respectfully) challenge Al to prove me wrong. Love everything about the car except this issue.
