The sound, THE SOUND?! Thanks for posting. This car is a demon around the track. Maybe I can get one used in 6-7 years.....

Based on the comments, I was expecting more in the video. Kinda boring on the exhaust note and sounds like most every other LS engine.

100% serious. I didn't get much out of the video. Just sounds like another LS engine with an exhaust on it. With all the carrying on and comments, I was expecting more from it than what I saw. Like, WOT pass by, sliding around curves, rapid accel/decel, etc. Not a short clip of a couple curves, an unstable rear end and some chirp.

So your gripe is about the video, not the actual car?

Contact your friendly local vinyl wrap shop, and they'll be only too happy to comply. Saves the paint, too!

In this case, yes. The video is really meh. It would be nice to see it actually doing what it's supposed to be doing on a track. That would be more fun to watch and listen to.

I still don't like the tails though, but I'm not buying it so I'm not really that worried about it.

Ditto on the tails. I can't believe that seeing this car in person will change my tune. But I think the car sounds pretty damn good considering the quality of the video. It can only get better from here.

The video is boring. It's not really showcasing the car. The exhaust sounds like every other LS engine car with an exhaust kit on it. I don't know how much clearer I can be. People are fapping over something a little more entertaining than watching paint dry.

Seeing it tearing ass around a track at full speed, wailing exhaust, speeding past other cars, etc. That would be fap-worthy. Not what basically amounts to a slightly aggressive touring lap that I'd see with an amateur driver just driving around.

That car is as glued to the pavement as any I've seen. And sure it sounds like a V8, a "powerful" V8. Sorry it bores you. I dig it! BTW, I don't believe these are corporate videos.

Glued? Did you miss the ass end jumping around? I've seen several 5th gens in our group on the track just as glued for much less with less configuration. Also, that "powerful" V8? I had more to the tire than it makes at the crank (as do many, many other 5th gen owners) -- those are 'powerful' V8s and they have exhausts that make you very aware they're there and mean business.

I'm just not easily impressed with things like some of you apparently are.

You got videos of your 5th gens from your group tracking around the Nurburgring better than the Z/28 is?
