Those short bursts of throttle were awesome. We need to see it on some nice straights and get a better clip of the exhaust note.

I Heard the new Z/28 goes like 3 seconds better lap time than the ZL1. They didn't say what track it was but they said it had a better lap.

wow, so for the ring it would probably be even more difference since the ring must be a longer track.

the zl1 was already some serious territory only costing $54,000 base and this is just going to make GM that much more respectable.

I don't think it's linear like that.

It depends on how the track favors the advantage each car has. Would the Z/28's better handling, braking and tire help more at the Ring or would the ZL1's better power?

Tough to say since we don't know what the Z/28 is capable of... But I can't wait to find out!

I think the Z/28 will be 10-12 seconds per lap faster than the ZL1. It's an incredible track where the power of the ZL1 will help it in spots -- but the gap may be even greater with the grip and brakes on the Z/28.

About that corner exit from the Karussell -- I suspect the Traction Control is off or in track mode, and that's a hell of a difficult corner for suspensions. It's not very fast, either, so it's easy to overpower the rears coming out. You're at the limit of any suspension, with full cornering load plus the compression of the banking, and it's easy to get into the throttle too much and too soon. It's incredibly hard to ease into the throttle as the suspension unloads, as you can see the straight ahead. The car is nearly straight but the suspension is still loaded, and when you exit right at the corner of the concrete, the pavement transitions from banked to flat. The car is lined up but still has to exit that transition before you can hammer it.

That's just my $.02 and I have driven that circuit. And no, I didn't stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night...

7:41 was an incredible time. No way the Z/28 beats this by 3 seconds on the ring, but I sure hope it does.

I think we are all going to be at the lap this car puts down at the ring. What I would love to see is a ZL1 lap with similar sticky tires, but that's not likely to happen.
