The original goal, I thought, was to pit these 2 cars against each other since the gt500 supporters here were getting irritated with the unfairness of the biased mags.

I've been wondering this since I read it, did Randy experience brake pad fade or bake fluid fade?

I would say brake fade is a product of heat. Which can be alleviated with proper pads, rotors, fluid and cooling. I'm sure you know more about this than I do.

I really don't know the actual skill level of either driver. Van mentioned he was an instructor so obviously he has quite a bit of experience.

If they redesign the camaro to be like the viper for 55k count me in! In the meantime I'm waiting for my blue ray metallic zl1, which may take a few months. I will buy which ever comes out first!

So basically Van 1 - Torq 0.

And Torq did a pulley tune, right? If he was a skilled driver he should been able to hold his own without it.

If you look close in the video around 9:10 you can see the dash. It looks like the non-nav configuration. I'm not 100% on this but that's what it looks like to me.

It will be interesting to see if in a year or two they offer the ZL1 in Europe. I know they sell all the vettes and the Camaro SS there. Lots of tracks there too. Would be fun.

Yes, I think the big IF gets ignored by some here.

Road course the gt500 needs mods to keep up. 1/4 mile the zl1 needs mods to keep up.

And we're back to the endless mod loop equation.
