Well, ok, not trying to exaggerate!!! Although there is definitely something to be said about IRS vs. solid axle
When I had the opportunity to drive a 5th-gen a couple years ago, the brakes were NOTICEABLY stronger than the ones on my 4th-gen, and the cornering felt pretty flat, for a stock suspension. I'd hazard to say "flatter" than my '02 before suspension mods.
Anyhow, my main concern is getting a car that is going to need WORK/PREP to go on the track, and it sounds like the new Camaro is pretty robust from the factory.
..... not that I would expect anything less of something coming out of Oshawa!!!
