From the factory, the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 comes equipped with a line lock feature, which makes burnouts a whole lot easier by locking the front wheels with the brakes while the rears are free to rotate. Yet for whatever reason, in this video, Vengeance Racing (VR) decided to do a burnout the old fashioned way, and the Camaro ZL1’s rear brakes end up catching fire as a result.
We’ll assume that the factory line lock has been disabled due to modifications made to the 1,000-horsepower Camaro ZL1, which uses an F1 ProCharger in place of its factory blower. With an extra 350 horsepower under the hood, there’s no doubt this ZL1 is a monster at the strip. After all, VR is the same group that built this 1,100-hp Camaro ZL1, which blasted through the quarter-mile quicker than the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon can manage.
In any case, we enjoyed the smoke show, but our favorite part of this entire bit comes at about 1:17, when we hear: “Oh, that was Ron. Okay, that makes sense now.”
Go ahead an hit play to see Ron’s shenanigans in the VR ZL1.
