Keep in mind that there comes a point where too much power is a bad thing. My car is severely traction limited now with it's paltry 580 hp. The new car will suffer the same fate if Chevy doesn't use...

Chevrolet is not going to make any bold moves to surpass the dodge hp wise. Chevrolet is more reactive than proactive. I believe the new generation ZL will be more evolutionary than revolutionary. It...

Congrats again Stephen! It's great seeing you improving every time you bring that beast back out. Keep on trucking towards that 8.9999 run. That's one hell of a street car. Imagine what a 500 lb...

Stephen, congrats on your new best! Truly one of the most impressive ZL1s out there. However, I do agree that the "other" car is still a ZL1 also. It is just in a different class as yours. You...

Folks seem to thing the Hellcat won't handle. Though it isn't as good as the ZL1, it's far better than people think. In a couple tests, it was actually faster around a track than the ZL1 and stang....

Though I haven't driven the new SS, I know what you mean. I was very disappointed when I bough my ZL1 because it felt so slow. It felt to me like a high 12 second car. Boy was I shocked when the car...

I pretty much figured as much, but it goes to show just how spoiled we are. The current ZL makes 580hp in a much heavier platform, the new one promises to be significantly lighter. I'm hoping they...

I agree that these are either uncorrected numbers, or a tuned car. We will have to wait and see what other tuner shops are getting out of their "stock" SSs.
