...Ok,...If it was on a "track" where it came out of a tight hair-pin turn, followed by a flat quarter-mile straight-a-way, then a banked lazy turn, how fast would it be on the straight?...lol..

I agree.
I'm guessing 1/4 mile times will be similar to the ZL1.

i should be close to the zl1 but i think it will be slower.

lap times change from track to track . 1/4 tells what kinda power it has . im pretty sure it gonna turn ok.
if ur more interested in lap time then dont post plz this is 1/4 section . plz make another post if ur worried about that.

You are very likely correct in this assumption. Hopefully when this is confirmed people won't be moaning about how the Z/28 is a 'disappointment'....

I mean this with all due respect but I think you are missing the point of this beast. This car is more about handling and the "whole package" than just raw power.....

I'd be surprised if someone were seriously disappointed that a 505-hp car doesn't perform in a straight line at the same acceleration as a 580-hp car.

Besides the power difference the Z/28 is just not built for the 1/4!

For sure the 1/4 mile is not gonna be it's claim to fame, but I would think car mags and others will run it at the drags to see what it can do...1/4 mile stats get included with just about every other car made....

You'd think so, but it seems that a lot of people don't 'get it'. Just wait, as soon as the 1/4 times show that it's slower than a ZL1, people are going to start talking about what a 'ripoff' the Z/28 is when they can get a ZL1 that is 'faster' and cheaper..... Hopefully I'm wrong, but I'm probably right...

Yes, there will be those naysayers, it's inevitable.

Most likely you are wrong
How GM would charge more for less , they can try , but I think they will be in for a surprise .
Regarding performance , GM has to keep some cards in the sleeve
About 18 months after they bring the Z/28 back out , they will bring an updated newer version with another 80+ HP , and there we go again , and again
One can never bring all the cards at once , it's not a good thing !!!

No sh*t. Z/28 1/4 mi times: Boring.

Nurburgring, Laguna Seca, VIR, now those are times that show the engineering that went into the car and ones I look forward to learning.

And most critical- can it hold up to do it all day, day after day?

#74 on my Z/28 list of important facts: drag racing performance.
