That does not sound unlike the C6R... Very nice! Sharp contrast to that next vehicle, which I assume is about to lap the Z lol.

It's just an illusion, look close. But the compression is probably maxed on the hairpin.

ok...ok...looks like they are dialing her in now. We should be seeing some numbers soon. I got to admit, though I will only buy one if I can still keep my ZL1, that got me excited.

The clearance on the passenger side is more accurate. That was shot in the Karrussel, so the pavement is banked. This makes it look like the clearance is tight towards the driver's side of the car...

I knew my wife was a keeper when we were dating, as my favorite thing was renting an RV and parking it below the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca (in the RV lot -- not literally "below the Corkscrew") during the races there. AND she loves "Oh Brother" to boot... AND she's jazzed that I'm ordering a Z/28. I'm a lucky man, for sure...

I bet we start to see numbers in July, or August at the latest. However, given the release date on the car is April 2014, GM may keep the lap-times private if they keep improving the car until the exact production specs are locked down. Surely they'd start publicizing these numbers by December 2013, to start building the buzz around the car?

Yes and once he got past that fluff he got on the power immediately and powered out of the corner without the car missing a beat. VERY impressive. I bet this car is going to be an absolute blast to drive.

I'm thinking they are going to wait to run this with a CTF level vehicle and the may not be built and dialed in until later in the fall. Pure speculative guessing on my part.
