4.3 seconds from 0-60 isn't too bad. They don't say what the DA was. Wonder if they let the IAT get too warm before launching. That reduces timing advance big time with the Corvettes. Assuming they did things right then I'm afraid the mph isn't indicative of an 11 second car if 116 is best.

I swear I read it was cold in at least one of those reviews, so we might be stuck with that 116... I still think it has some top-11s in it by great drivers and on good tracks, but only time will tell

Ultra high performance tires are worthless in the cold.
0-60 times tell me that there were traction issues.
119 mph trap speed tells me that there is a lot of hp.
This car will see 11s no prob with the right conditions.

Temperatures ranged from 34.2°F wet to 46.4°F dry. The ZL1 can do much better, the tires being the limiting factor.

I'm not a huge car guy but that is baaaaaaaaaaaaad a**!!! Quite a bit of dissing on the interior. I don't think it's too bad, but I still don't care for that steering wheel. It would be sweeter if it said Camaro, or ZL1, or something IMO.

MT is showing 3.8 0-60 and 12.1 quarter...quite the difference.
