Interesting that they are using the ABM color for the test mule.. Man I hope they don't come out with the ABM Z, I would trade my 2LT for that in a heartbeat.

awesome looking calipers, hopefully they'll be a direct swap to the SS like the SS calipers are a direct swap to the V6's

^ only the front calipers are different. which are 6pot brembos exactly like the cts-v has. pedders did a swap awhile back and it worked.

This has probably been asked a million times before, but what's up with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway? Why didn't they just use full body camo?

Might be hard to run away from the z28 you would need some serious get up haha

I just hope that gm irons out all of the little annoying things (such as the low passenger seat) for the z28, that and that the car beats the GT500 around the ring

Also i think the calipers would look alot better painted, IMHO

I've ridden in my dad's camaro several times and I don't think there's a problem with the seat. . .

and the GT500 around the ring. yea where's this gt500 that's lapped the ring? I've googled it and can't seem to find it. . .so someone with this info please let me in on it.

well if you have a friend with a GT500...thats how you run/find out which is better its a 2 for one deal

and I agree on the painted calipers...but so long as it hauls serious I don't care ill paint them myself

Probably to save money, they are using the same knuckles front and rear. Vette is the same way.

Sooooo, this whole Z8 thing... I don't think they're really going to make it. It's just hype- the market would never allow for a car of this caliber and economic value to be produced. It'll never happen. Besides, even if they did it still wouldn't beat the GT500...

Thankfully those will be the front tires. It is the 305/315-20's on the rear that worry me.

I'm still hoping for PS2s, but have only seen the Goodyears and Pirellis...
