You want Randy Pobst to put up some handling numbers? Why? You will never be able to duplicate them.

Maybe we could get Evan Smith (if he would actually drive a Camaro) to put up some hero 1/4 mile times that NOBODY will be able to match. They'll look great on paper, though.

I don't know who that test driver is, but he is probably better than most of us. I think those numbers are a pretty accurate representation of what 90% of owners can expect out of the car.
This quarter mile test was not done on a semi prepped drag strip but on the front straightaway at Roebling Roads road course on a cool day for a little comparison to other runs that we know to be better in the 1LE. But we also must take into consideration that this car might be a little tight from not be broken in yet along with tires that perform much better on warmer days.

Motorweek has in the past put up some impressive numbers for their test Camaro's especially SLP tuner cars but they used the drag strip in Maryland for all of their numbers gathering tests when weather permitted and Roebling Roads near Savannah, Ga for road course work.
