[VIDEO] Corvette Stingray's PDR Captures a Tire Blowout on the Highway

We knew that once Corvettes were armed with the Performance Data Recorder that YouTube would never be the same. Already we are starting to see PDR videos online and they aren’t just videos that captured on-track driving. Corvette owners are using the PDR as dash cams and it’s only a matter of time before a PDR captures a “dashcam moment” like we see coming out of Russia every day.

One Corvette Forum member had his PDR activated as he was driving on a toll road in Fort Worth, TX when a semi tractor-trailer had a tire blowout in front of him.

Chevy Tells 2015 Corvette Owners Not to use the PDR Valet Mode over Legal Concerns

Remember that great video that Chevrolet put out extolling the features of the new Valet Mode with the Performance Data Recorder? Activating the Valet Mode allows you to record front-facing video as well as capture audio from within the car so you can help keep your Corvette safe when it’s in the hands of others.

Well it turns out that recording audio from within the car may be considered a felony in some states that require notice and consent to individuals that they are being recorded and now GM is sending notices out to dealerships and customers alerting them to this fact as well as promising a future update to the PDR system.

[VIDEO] Chevrolet Puts the 2015 Corvette's Performance Data Recorder to the Test

C7 Corvette Engineer Tadge Juechter has emphasized all along that everything on the new seventh-generation Stingray has a purpose – or it wouldn’t be there.

Same goes for the new Performance Data Recorder that just became available on the 2015 model.

While some might see the new high-definition camera that records what is going on in front of the Stingray as just an electronic play toy, you better believe that Juechter sees it as much more.

[VIDEO] The 2015 Corvette's Peformance Data Recorder Demonstration from the NCM Bash

At the Corvette Museum’s 2014 Bash, Steve Wesoloski from Cosworth was on site to talk about the 2015 Corvette’s Performance Data Recorder. The Performance Data Recorder (also called the PDR) features a high def camera that records front-facing video of the car onto an SD card and then you can overlay a variety of telemetry data over the video. That telemetry ranges from speed and RPMs to a G-Force meter or location on the track via GPS.

A writer from Engadget.com had the opportunity to test the 2015 Corvette with the Performance Data Recorder at Spring Mountain. The video shown here is directly from the PDR.

The Corvette’s Performance Data Recorder is a built in dash cam with the ability to overlay the car’s telemetry as well as GPS location on a race track. Engadget.com took some laps in the 2015 Corvette Stingray at Spring Mountain to test the new system.

When loaded in Cosworth Toolbox, the data is superimposed on a Bing map of the track and can be compared to a reference lap in real time to help find where you’re losing precious seconds with corner traces, vehicle speed and cornering forces. Obviously, the PDR won’t sell Corvettes — they do that perfectly well all by themselves — but for a novice or pro driver looking to help improve their skills, it seems Chevrolet has put together a very compelling suite of tools.
