I know it was one guy but my point is one already has. Once more people get the cars and break them in, I wouldn't be too surprised to see the 2018 GTs running similar 1/4 miles as the GT350s.

No, you said the GT350 doesn't have drag mode when its been well known it does since the reveal.

The 2018 A10 GT has already trapped 119 mph. That's got to be pretty close to the GT350s. You can...

Seems like the Ford 7.0 rumors are gaining ground and that engine could wind up in the Raptor. If its true, I don't see how Ford can build a 7.0 V8 but GM can't.

While it will be nice to get instrumented testing of the 1LE, this H2H will be rather disappointing because we pretty much know the outcome already.

I think there is still space for a Z/28, even if it sits around the ZL1 price range. The Z/28 should offer a different experience than the ZL1.

I would take an n/a Z/28 over the ZL1, even if they...

The Z28 badge was used more on a generic V8, than the Z/28 was on an actual Z/28. I would rather they not go back to slapping the Z28 badge on anything.

Do you think they just decided to do the LT5? The ZR1 prototypes have been running around for over a year and a half. I guarantee the engines were being built and tested before that.

Al O already said the Z/28 is an n/a car. If, and that is a massive if, there will ever be another Z/28, it won't have the LT5.

So you don't think the ZL1 could have been any better, if it wasn't stuck with the tiny 1.7 liter blower from the Z06? Or that manual Camaros are stuck with AFM lifters, when they don't get AFM?

The Camaro is clearly held back by the Vette. Sure, the base engines are generally more than good enough but the performance versions lack the autonomy needed for the Camaro's competition.

From what I can find, the base C7 Z06 weighs 3,520 lbs. The additional 140 lbs on the ZR1 would bring it to 3,660 lbs.

Yeah.

That was probably his way of saying there wonít be a Z/28. Corvette has gone all in with supercharging. There wonít be another Corvette to justify the needed N/A engine.

The Camaro never got the 3rd gen LT4 and LT5, the LS6 or the LS9. It got the LS7 because the C7 showed up. The Camaro got the 10 speed first because it doesnít fit in the C7.

2.65 blower instead of the 1.7
Dual fuel injection instead of only direct injection
Stronger crank


They really need to swap the LT5 into the ZL1.
