No chance. The C5 Z weighs in at approx. 3100 pounds and was a bit underrated at 405, more like 425 HP from the factory. Stock C5 Z06 will commonly dyno in at 365+ to the wheels. It's a low 12 second...

I do like the SRT-4. Do you encounter much torque steer with it? Something about those just appeal to me, much more than the imports. My friend has one, pretty quick, different kind of animal from...

You will beat it, it's too heavy of a car with very similar power as the Camaro. I must admit, I also think it looks great. I wish it was a bit smaller as well, I saw one up close at a stop light,...

Please, enough about racing at stop lights, take it to the track. The single most annoying thing about those I typically run across in these cars is the total lack of braincells when it...

I love the look of that concept. The Monaro has always looked better and more aggressive than it's stateside Pontiac versions. If that concept were to magically come stateside it would be mighty...

Actually, the Evo starts at $ 33,000 msrp, MR version starts at $37,000 and with options could go past $40 large - for a lancer great! Perhaps the SS is a more apt comparison. But, maybe not, I don't...

I do a few things to HELP avoid problems. The only way you will ever keep it pristine without anything is to keep it in the garage and never drive it. I refuse to think this way - and in this respect...

Hi,
I had a C6 Vette with the A6 paddle shifters. I found it gimmicky and never really used it much. Having the trans set to sport mode and allowing it to shift itself felt better. I will probably...

No,
Actually it is all the Mustang guys crowing about how supposedly "close" they are to the Camaro. I have no doubt which is the faster car and I don't think it's close. The Mustang guys are the...

Nothing "exotic" is needed - those components together, especially the 3.73 and re-tuned shocks account for the improvement in G and slalom numbers for the stang. Tires alone do not, and you said it...

I believe Ford did the smart thing in coming out with the track pack - but it is not an apples to apples comparison with the Camaro. The suspension and gearing change to 3.73 accounts for the...

Too often reviews of GM offerings are obviously slanted or old stereotypes and biases come through. This guy as I stated, was illogical in his criticism of one car (Camaro), while stating...

Hyundai seems to be the car company darling of the press at the moment. It's obvious their quality has improved, but the Gen coupe does not do it for me at all. I personally don't like any of the...

That idiot gave the RT Challenger a "I want one" BS line in his review, yet he complains about how it's interior is worse than the Camaro. Hack review from a hack site. :bs:

GXP already has a 3.70 rear end. The Camaro, with revised gearing will be faster, and it's much cheaper. I do like both cars though, the GXP as part of the GM family is still a great car, but Camaro...

I think it depends on what the titanium is used for. On the C5 Z06 the titanium exhaust is 28 pounds lighter than the standard C5. Corsa also made a titanium exhaust for it, which was also...

The cheapest way is taking out the back seat, although cabin noise would increase. I did that on my old 05 GTO and I believe it saved over 30 pounds or so, but it did make the inside of the car...

Get the Vette hands down. Except, as others have stated, I'd look around if it's the C6 you are after, you can find really good deals all over for new and used.
