Not the way stopping is done on a track.

I don't know for sure but I highly doubt they used different tracks. That would be a PR nightmare!

ok, I was always under the impression that the IROC was the same basic package as the IROC race cars, but without all the race features (roll cage, stripped interior, fuel cell, etc) and a full interior instead.

There was nothing else like it. You can't duplicate that today, it's like a sequel to a great movie that does not cut it. I still remember the feeling I had when I saw my first one. You old guys know what I am talking about.

With 190 to 215 HP it wouldn't be very exciting for an International Race of Champions.

Pedders not withstanding...they could make even a refrigerator handle.

The 60's Z28s didn't weigh 2 tons either.

I'm still betting you will not see a 5th gen Z28. Wish on a star if you like, but it ain't happening.

I never understood it either. when I hear Camaro I think of an SS. I've always wanted an SS and to me thats the pinnacle of a Camaro... well at least until they came out with the 2012 ZL1

Awe-inspiring optimism - more of what we need. Maybe with the few hardcore Z/28ers is all we need to make that hallowed car a reality for this Gen 5
