POWER ISSUES?

I have an 2012 SS Auto V-8, I'm around 600mi and it seems like power has dropped. For example I had tires spinning with TC and ST on at around 200 miles now seems to not spin them even with TC and ST Off (When at stopped position then flooring it) The 0-60 was six seconds which seems slow; the car was warmed up and was a 60 degree day. My question is this normal to have a dip in performance? will power return? I have not Been hard on the car just a few hard accelerations. Anyone else out there with the L99 experience this?

Welcome and congrats on you car.
Did you fill with 93 ocatne?That would be my first question since you only have 600 miles on it .

I hope so I get gas from shell or chevron. Also noticed car felt sluggish when gently accelerating around 35 to 45 mph could just barely tell a little vibration maybe feeling AFM
