^ Yea, about the slotted rear rotors, arent the front rotors usually larger and basically better.
The pontiac G8 (Zeta, same platform) has larger rear rotors. Link to G8 test
Quote:
Interestingly, while all four of the G8's discs are ventilated, the rear pair is slightly larger in diameter than the fronts. It's not a big difference (12.64 vs. 12.76 inches, a measly 3 millimeters) and the fronts are clamped by twin-piston calipers while the rears get single-piston units, but it is an interesting engineering choice.

The last pic that Omega posted really shows the lines. You can see the "reverse mohawk" the bulging quarterpanels and the side crease that runs along the door toward the rear "vents" (the upper one, not the lower by the rocker panel, tho it's very visible too). I think it's one of the best pictures to have surfaced of the ones I've seen. The lighting really makes the paint-camo worthless.

I think I see that too. The last one on the first page of this thread shows them lit up bright and they do look rounded on the bottom like the concepts. Good eye! I hope we're not the only ones who see it.

I see it too...good eye. And, ^love your username...funny!

Not sure if these are the same pix as the others but w/ PS'd backgrounds...prolly different. But, yes...you can see the mohawk in the last pic. On top of that, you can also see the laptop mounted in the center console (like police cars have) for all their preproduction Camaro testing data....kinda neat.

Also, they might be testing the usefullness of slotted rear rotors vs regular rotors to help them determine which to use.

The new brakes are much better than what we were seeing earlier. What a relief.

No kidding. I didn't expect to see what appear to be four piston calipers on either front or rear. Hopefully that remains they will at least be on the Z28 and SS. I could care less about slotted or cross-drilled as long as they don't warp like last generation...

So... What you all are telling me is... Those AREN'T the real headlights??? Are you SURE?!?




























Seriously people, if you're going to have the audacity to just jump in the middle of a conversation on the thread and throw a b!tch fit about something you don't like on the car, atLEAST have the decency to look through the other threads to see if your topic has already been covered!


Not The Real Headlights!--> Love that name!!



Tag--> Why can't we talk about what's going on in our pants?!? :tweetz: Hehe j/k!

I'm getting close to saying it's safe to say the front air intake and rear vent's won't be open. I would think if they were, they would be testing them open and clearly these are not. Did Camero already tell us the rear vents wern't as the 69's wern't or did I dream that?

I wasn't attacking any one person, so much as the huge number of people that feel the need to complain about the lights in every thread with new pictures. I apologize if I came across as aggressive or angry, that was not my intention.

Yeah even the Z06 and ZR1 don't have an open vents in front and it's a MAJOR styling feature of those cars. If you think about it it's obvious that the Camaro won't have it open either because hood latch (and actually the main structure that supports the radiator and the whole front end) is right behind there just like in the Vette. And yeah the rears are like the 69's as you can see in the all the pictures. The sheetmetal (including the gas cap) has been finalized for a LONG time.

uh camero... sry but this time, i think you are wrong bro. ive seen the Z06 up close and in person at a dealership, and the vent on the nose really is open and functional. im not meaning to sound mean or anything, im just saying.

plus the corvette's hood opens the opposite direction that what the new camaro's hood will.
