This^^. Im no expert at all but it looks like they were taking it easy collecting data and learning the car on that track. The suspension on this car is extermely adjustable from what ive read about it from the company that designs these types of suspensions. I wonder if there will be a mode selection button like the ZL1


So being that this is a longer track would it be assumed that its time will be slower than the ZL1 here? I think ill fire up the simulator (Forza) and see what i come up with (THIS IS A JOKE)


but im really gonna do it

Oh and WTF cammo? i mean we all know what it looks like. is it just to protect the paint or hide the lack there of

I wouldn't be surprised if it turns a faster lap than the ZL1.....

My thought too. Noticed the mid corner jounce and throttle lift. Expect that of the Boss and IRS. I think we are looking at some early baseline development footage.

I would not be surprised to see mid 7:20's

Easy 15 seconds off the ZL1, at least.

They will likely have hundreds of hours of track time before we see this thing hero lapping the ring. That was clearly not being pushed very hard and definitely had some bounce on the exit of that corner. It is going to be very fast though.
