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.

Good for you.

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.

LOL... the Karussell is one of the slowest corners on the Ring (anything above 50mph there is pushing it hard as the car litterally bounces on the concrete "plates").

That's why it is such a popular spotting place

Anyone else see a rollbar in there?
It's a Ring enforced rule to have pre-production cars equipped with a safety roll cage...

I must admit I was crushed when I read that "This would be the most expensive Camaro ever produced" I'm holding out hope until the Z28 is released to see if I can afford one. If not Ill get a 2SS with a 1LE package and go to work.

If not , get a 2SS 1LE and go to work ???

So if you get the Z/28 you wouldn't have to go to work , what's the deal in between ?
