Not sure how accurate this information is as it posted over on the SVT forum. But to sum it up the Z28 in it's present form is not as fast as the ZL1, the car was getting upset in the turns due to bumps and stiffer suspension.

Posted by ThePill, who you may not agree with but he does seem to have a knack for obtaining inside information.

"there is a serious issue with suspension, handling or braking. The Z28 is REAL uncomfortable right now in corners. If that's the case, seems like Team Camaro is running their mouth before the car is even done... Simulations maybe? Either way, the way the car was running a few weeks ago, it is not breaking records as is.The car will make a revised run later this year... probably Fall '13. The ZL1 can reach over 170mph on the 3km stretch, the Z28 was about 165... The only place Chevy really seemed to mash the throttle."

That sounds like competitor trash talk. The videos do not back that up at all. The Z/28 taking corners in the videos looks VERY comfortable; it's fast, flat, solid and very quick on the exit. Mark Stielow isn't a showboat; he delivers and lets the results do the talking.

Yep, thepill is obviously correct. And all of those championship trophies at the GM performance office are all fake. Team Chevrolet obviously has no idea what they are doing.

i originally thought it would be about 10 seconds quicker than the ZL1 but in one of those videos the car is just on a tear. Id say 7:25 and might nip the Z07s numbers of 7:22

That would be extremely impressive but I don't see that happening. I believe this Z/28 is going to be a track monster I can't see it being that good though.

I am going to respectfully disagree.

the Z06 with Z07 package did the ring in 7:22, and the Z06 weighs in at 3175 pounds according to Chevy. The 3400 pound ZR1 with and additional 130 HP and 130 lb/ft did it in 7:19.68

The Z/28 is with the same engine as the Z06 is gonna weigh in at around 3800 lbs (from what we have seen), I know its pretty much a full on race car, but the suspension, tires, and brakes are gonna make up for that extra 625 pounds? I don't know that would be a hell of an accomplishment for team Chevy.

So my prediction is 7:30.00, which puts it right up there with some very high dollar, high performance cars

Weight isn't necessarily an advantage or disadvantage on a course like the ring it's more about the suspension and how well it can put the power down and keep it down. Without any other info I'm putting my faith in Stielow and his ability to make track killer cars. I'm standing by my guess. The 11" square tire config is going to do a lot to offset weight differences.

Touche, but there is also the extra 134 Hp on 130 lb/ft of torque in the ZR1 vs the Z/28

either way I am excited to see the times

Depends on which meds he uses on which days...or is that daze?

Here's a Pill quote, verbatim, regarding the Z/28:

"BTW, I am paying for one... If the production numbers are low enough and I can get one."
