Saw this on GM Launch site today.

How fast will the Z/28 be in 0-60? In the quarter mile?
The true performance of the Z/28 will be measured in lap times, not straight-line performance. To preserve the track-focused nature of the Z/28, it doesn’t have the strengthened differential and half shafts of the ZL1, and is not recommended for drag racing. The new Z/28 is designed to be the most track-capable Camaro ever produced by the factory.

It will be fast for sure down the straight. Just not faster.

Well, alrighty then!!...lol...Good info...but don't they always test it in the 0-60, 1/4 mile just as a matter of course anyway?....They do with all other makes and models, I believe...

That's just a kick in the nuts to the ZL1 and its owners as a year ago it was the same hype for the ZL1

Just Another 700whp DD 5.0

Last time i checked my SS doesn't have these either yet is somehow manages to get down the 1320 over and over just fine.

Z/28 with 7000rpm redline minus the same clutch packs and 19" wheels will walk the ZL1 with a driver.

Yes that sounds like marketing hype for the way the ZL1 has been designed.

....I am sitting back, just enjoying the proliferation of technology and all that's good with Camaro right now. What a great time to be a Camaro enthusiast, and an old Camaro person from the dated past on top of it...like as in the difference from the horse and buggy to the space shuttle and having experienced the difference between them....<well, sort of speak>

Just watched the Car Show video again, the emcee said about the Z/28..."...It's a track car, not designed for straight line 0-60, 1/4 Mile, but you certainly can do that if you want....."

Just FYI....

...the car if one reads the specific design behind the engineering involved is soley set up for short to medium road course tracks. It will outturn and navigate it's way through corner's like there's no tomorrow. With a 7,100 RPM redline.

Even though the ZL1 has better power to weight....the Z28 has better tires in back, better gearing and 300lbs less to get moving....I think the Z28 will be just as fast (or faster) than the ZL1 in the 1/4.

....as long as they don't neuter it with excessive torque management (like they did to the ZL1)

Might you Be interested in a game of shuffle board? Or perhaps considering providing a Z/28 about a two car jump to even things out? Really now, the ZL1 has a little brother to protect in the 1/4 mile contests!

I'm gonna guess owners will be able to get them into the 11.3's stock, with enough practice some drivers can get every last horsepower working perfectly. Can't wait till people start taking delivery and we get some real world info!

There is a reason you don't see funny cars at road courses, and the same would be true of a Z28 at the dragstrip. The Z28 does have the advantage of not embarassing itself at the strip, unlike the funny car that wouldn't finish the first lap at a road course.

The last stock C6 ZO6 Vett I saw on a dyno put down 437rwhp. Is that really enough to put a 3850 lb. car in the 11s?

As more info on the z28 comes to light, it would appear the zl1 is best suited for street/strip and mods, with the stronger driveline. I was going to see about getting into a z28, but not now.......the purpose of the z28 is a bit too specific for my needs.......GM means what they say now.......not recommended for drag strip means just that........it makes sense , because GM is not going to put out two different cars back to back that directly compete with each other........DIFFERENT CARS , DIFFERENT PURPOSE

The Z28 is a 12 second car just like the ZL1, A few might see 11's but mid to low 11's seem unlikely.
