2017 ZL1 Camaro Line Lock Test

In the video above check out youtuber ZL1Tommy testing out the line lock function for himself. Built into the function is a walking burnout mode that works for 15 seconds, so let’s hope Tommy films that for us next!

So how does all this work? Michael Austin from Autoblog perfectly lays it out for you: “The function is activated through the launch control menu when the car is in Track mode and the transmission is in Drive or first gear. Once the line is activated in lock in the instrument cluster screen, the driver presses 80 pounds of pressure on the brake pedal. A status bar in the multifunction screen show a readout up to 100 percent. Then, mash the gas and light up the tires. The feature is intended for prepping for a drag strip run. But wait, there’s more. Press both center buttons on the steering wheel pads – cruise control on the left and select on the right – and a rolling burnout kicks in. Line lock works for 15 seconds before cutting throttle.”
