2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with Launch Control
While attending a press preview of the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at Virginia
International Raceway, Vehix's Contributing Editor, Thom Blackett, grabbed
this short clip demonstrating the car's launch control feature.
The idea is to maximize off-the-line grip, something that can go up in
smoke with a 580-horsepower muscle car. To
activate the system, tap the traction control button (located forward of
the gear shift) twice. At that point, plant the throttle and the engine rpm
will be limited to about 4,000 (varies slightly depending on weather
conditions). Drop the clutch, and you're off.
Even under wet conditions, the 580-hp ZL1 was able to hook up and get
moving, rather than sit and spin the rear rubber. And, thanks to a driver
who had a little trouble activating the launch control system, we get to
hear the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 sing at nearly full throttle.
Camaro Scosche Dash Kit Review
A quick overview of my install of the new Scosche Dash Kit for the 2010 -
2012 Camaro. I
replaced my Metra kit with this and overall, I like it better so I'll be
* The install was MUCH easier than the Metra kit - basically plug and play
(just follow the directions - not many wires to splice and there isn't
another box you need to tuck under there.
* Most importantly: the kit looks better than the Metra in my opinion, a
little more like how a stock setup should have been for a 2010 Camaro (that old radio is UGLY
and the metra was plain)
* The touch screen controls work nice (although there's a little glare) and
the steering wheel controls work like stock
* Most of the car settings are supported and controlled within the touch
screen (that's a separate unit for the Metra kit).
* The two pieces of the unit (face and bottom piece) are glued together and
not all that well. It separated on me just a little.
* Getting the head unit to fit right was a chore - had to screw the kit
back in an out a few times and bend the brackets a bit to make it fit
right. Even then, the gap at the top is a little more obvious than it
* The directions could have included some actual diagrams on how to get the
center console / dash apart (instead of just text descriptions with part
* The speaker that produces the door chimes, blinkers, and back-up sensors
is mounted somewhere inside the kit and sounds a little cheap
* Doesn't come with Onstar support built in (probably to keep the cost
down). As I write this, it's not available yet but should be shortly
(CAMOSM is the model # I believe).
Overall: 3.5 stars out of 5
