No Slipping and Sliding for the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

ST. LOUIS, Miss – No Slipping and Sliding for the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28; the fastest and most track-capable Camaro of all time. Achieving such a significant perform took plenty of brainstorming and testing from exceptional Chevrolet engineers. During testing, engineers noticed that the tires were providing such a significant amount of traction and the brakes so much force that the wheel actually rotated inside the tire. This prompted Chevrolet engineers to think of a quick fix. 

To fix this rotation issue, the Chevy experts marked one of the Pirelli P Zero™ Trofeo R tires with a chalk line to the valve stem on the wheel. By the end of the lap, the team noted where the chalk line ended up, noticing it rotated a full 360 degrees from where it initially started. First, a racing technique was used to try to prevent slipping. This involved applying an abrasive paint where the tire meets the rim. This wasn’t enough to prevent rotation, so Chevrolet turned to a media-blasting. This involves shooting a gritty material through an air gun at the wheel’s surface, which adds texture to the paint for the tire to grip to. The extremely aggressive grip that media-blasting provided did just the trick, holding the tire in place. 

No Slipping and Sliding for the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 occurred after the media-blasting technique, once again proving it is one of the most track-capable Camaro ever!
