Again, 300 lbs is huge!...no matter what you think.

As someone else commented, the Z06 is supposed to be faster around the Nurburgring than the ZR1 that did it in 7:19.xx. I guess the 2014 Z06...

Are we trying to say the Z28 won't or shouldn't be tested on the 1/4 because it's a track car? And if so, if the SS is good on the drag strip, does that mean it shouldn't be used on the track?
