...since when does GM use ringers? This isn't Nissan we are talking about.

You can really only compare cars on events during the same day, with the same driver.
Right so we should throw all comparative times for the 'Ring out the window, too, since those are different days and different drivers...? I understand what you're saying would be the MOST accurate method of comparison, but fact of the matter is everyone has always compared times for cars with different drivers and different days... There's entire websites devoted to tracking what cars went around the Ring and what their times were. And those were all different drivers, different days.

I like the times run and hope they can be repeated. I do think we need same driver same day. I think the 1le will be the best muscle car out there. They may be heavy pigs but they are our heavy pigs! I still wish it had the bodywork from the zl1

also I dont think you can compare street car to street car with roll cage and race seat. lets see what they do from the dealer lots!

+1. I'm curious why there are a bunch of Al O and GM Nay Sayers all of a sudden?

I agree with you on that one. I say give one of these and a Boss to Randy Pobst (sorry if I spelled his name wrong) and have him do a back to back comparison like he did with the ZL1 and new GT500.

Aaron link is the ringer. He faster in the camaro than every pro driver that has been used by the mags. I'd like to see mark stielow drive it as well.
