    It should be the engine compression holding you back-this is a good thing.The computer will sometimes cut off fuel in this situation- with these cars they are kinda unpredictable and uneven on downshifts and stuff so watch it.

    The F-Bodies are a light car with a high compresion motor, so the motor slows the car down a lot. I used to live in Colorado, and my Camaro was the only car I drove that I didn't have to downshift on steep hils to stay off of the brakes.
