One of my Camaro's in Forza III (when I play anymore.....) has the cow-spots of the first IVER cars.

I'm using the Camaro ss on Forza 3 with the LS9. It's a beast! Lol.

Sounds OK. Not overly impressed with the tone. Nothing some mufflers can't fix however.

In 2008.... the 2010 Camaro ran the ring.... here it is (sorry I dont know how to embed the whole video or I would)

Great find! It's nice to see this video in comparison to the new one. You can see the difference in velocity as the car enters the turns. The new Z is so much flatter and gets back to the gas so much sooner.

Come on guys, you can't go by the sound you hear from a recording like that. They sure didn't have a professional movie sound and film crew doing the filming. So I would just wait before passing any opinions on about the sound unti you can hear it in person. Besides how good is your computer sound system too?

FYI I don't see a need for more boost from factory (although it would be nice ). I am betting it's better planted. Did anyone else notice 6 piston vs. 4 piston on the front . Maybe a slight weight reduction to 3,800 or less and 560hp with it being better planted and even better stopping? Plus much better at putting it to the ground than the competition (yes I am talking about you GT500 guys...no disrespect but it's no secret they are hard to get planted).

The few things I notice are
1) how much more PLANTED the new car is (much less roll)
2) how much DEEPER and powerful the motor sounds
3) how it seems to MAINTAIN VELOCITY in peak TORQUE range

It seems to have the traits you'd want to see in the Best Mixed Martial Arts fighter.... Strength, Speed, Agility, Stamina, and Tightly integrated from head to toe. And, it will be the top street fighter and winner consistently on the pro circuit (road course, nascar, drag). I really don't give a rats... @#** about drifting, but that's about as stylish as "pants on the ground" to me anyway. Sorry if I'm old school LOL.

How do they ship these cars to Germany? By Cargo planes? Certainly not be Sea, since it will take over four weeks. I see so many car manufactures takes cars to Germany for testing.

all you can really do is compare the differences between stock and this cars sound on your computer. and if you know how the stock sounds in person then you might have a general idea of what it will sound like. BUT it's just an idea. because laptop speakers, recording mic and even the compression format they chose has an effect on what we here from our computer.
