Camaro Z28 prototype production ramping up? Z/28 driveshafts ordered by GM!
 
Take this info for what its worth but I work with suppliers in the auto industry and deal with Camaro's driveshaft manufacturer. They just recently got an order from GM for more than a dozen driveshafts specifically for a Z/28 version of the Camaro. I was told the expected delivery date to GM was by the 3rd week of March and he thinks production will start in 2011. I've worked with the contact for years and believe what this person says because he's got no reason to lie to me and he stated this as fact. Sounds to me like GM is ramping up production of Camaro Z28 test cars! At the very least this tells me that a Z28 is definitely in the works and already under testing

Sounds good to me. Is a 2 Piece driveshaft currently being used on the 5th Gen SS?

Yes, hurry up for gods sake, its bad enough they went ahead and rebirthed the Camaro without a Z28 in the lineup, its gotta come soon!

That means it will have more power than the SS and they need a specific Drive Shaft that will fit the Z/28 and support it's power out put.
