You speak of the handling, but out of all those cars, which one's had more power than the camaro?

Right. Part of the problem with the Camaro is the weight. That's hard to overcome.

You dont get through that track on just straight away speed if thats what your saying....... You gotta be able to get through the corners fast as well. Im not going to look up all the acceleration times and weights of each car.... you can if you want. Sooooo its got more power....it also weighs more..... we could go back and fourth on this all day long

Once again.

Competition mode was not on for any of those tests.
It will handle differently with it on.

That is really dumb! Why would they do that? So no 0-60 or 1/4 times were done with competition mode? I wonder if they will try it out next round? That is just crazy!
What about the ring, was it used for that?

I don't know about the ring. However, to my understanding competition mode only helps on lateral movement, so it wouldn't change the 0-60 time or quarter mile.


This is the only review I know of that had competition mode on

Also dont forget the test of the Camaro were done on a day that was just above freezing. MT already stated they wanted to rerun all the test on a warmer day to see what the car was better able to do.

Obviously it helps. Personally, I'd rather have a car that muscles through the track and gets a good time than one that gets a good time on grace alone.

The only comment I'll say as far as handling for both cars is.... it all depends on the loose nut between the steering wheel and the drivers seat.... how good of a driver that person is. So the best bet is to go drive both yourself and decide which is best for you and for me it won't matter that much because I'm buying the Camaro reguardless, so arguing would be pointless! It all boils down to... what is your taste and you won't change others minds on what their taste is.

There's no reason to be. They handle differently, because they're different cars. The "advantage" the Mustang has is so small it's negligable.

Chevy chose to seriously make a "sports car"...that means they stressed superior refinement over brutal performance. IMO, it was a smart choice, and sales numbers will reflect that.

GM tends to go for grip over handling. Grip no doubt is fine, but I still think handling will be the weakest link in the Camaro's dynamics. That's not saying it will be bad, just not as good as acceleration, braking, and grip.
