2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: Airing it Out
June 01, 2010
I took our Camaro up to Willow Springs Raceway this weekend to get some go-kart seat time. Rather than take the boring highway route, I decided to see if the silver Chevy could change my mind on its handling in the tight twisty backroads. It didn't. But here's what I did discover - the pedals are just about perfect for heel-toe downshifts. It had just enough brake pedal travel to get close to the throttle for a quick blip between gears, and the stout engine is responsive enough to get the revs peaked at the right spot. It was a pleasant surprise, I must say.
Not so pleasant on this drive was a recurring warning that alerted me that the airbag is in need of service. The warning chime was a bit distracting when it would trigger in the middle of a turn. On the way back though, it apparently fixed itself.
