I've been following the Z06 issues, and one thing that's becoming apparent is the fact that whatever solution that may or may not come to deal with the cooling problems won't be easy. If it was, the...

I don't think any weight number disclosed from GM for the Camaro is "official" at this point. They're all projections until the production cars are rolling down the assembly line.

This is the first time I've read about heat issues on the LT4 in the CTS-V. I was hoping they sorted it out, but it's looking like the LT4 is the issue, not just poor cooling due to the Corvettes...

It's doing better in the CTS-V, and with all the extra cooling on the new SS, it seems they're addressing the LTs cooling issues the Corvettes are having. Hopefully the new ZL1 will have it sorted...

The only place the auto might be faster is full throttle up-shifts in sport mode. It's slower everywhere else, especially in down-shifts, arguably the most crucial thing on a track. And leaving it...

I wonder if keeping the 6th gens restyle so similar to the 5th gens because of the "resounding success of the 5th gens sales" wasn't a little presumptuous. I mean, were the 5th gens sales really...

Today's performance cars are vastly more powerful and safe than the old muscle cars. What makes you believe what you wrote is true?

I think a point that's missing is the fact that the Z/28 was such a single purpose car and priced so high, that anyone considering an SS couldn't even consider it. But when you see a car priced...

You're right, it's not a fair comparison feature to feature. I was looking at it from another angle brought up earlier.

You really have to ask yourself why they put all the extra cooling on the V8's? Why add all the weight, complexity and cost just for track use? They could've lowered the base price and the curb...

Not as bad as the Z/06, but even the LT1's oil temps run too high for comfort, and the A8 has had heat issues on the track as well.
