Interesting thought: One of the filmmakers comments on feeling like the automatic Camaro SS has 300 hp rather than 426. I'm assuming the silver SS was an A6 (haven't watched all of the parts of the film yet) so it is supposed to have 400 hp at the flywheel. But perhaps the silver Camaro was an early production number and suffered from the "slows."
If that's the case, I feel bad for these filmmakers because they might not have fully experienced the potential of the Camaro SS.
Just a thought.
