The LS7 has monster torque, the LSA even more so.....
The Z/28 according to GM will carry more speed through a corner, has a better power to weight ratio (accelerate faster). Even on the long straights the Z/28 is going to pull on the ZL1 Camaro, the Z/28 is going to be faster in every area. After all at the end of the day the power difference is only going to be about 30-40BHP between the Z/28 and ZL1 Camaro.
