No Magnetic Suspension In The 14 Z/28?

The Z/28 doesn't have the magnetic suspension. It's made for the track so it will ride rough on the street.

Can't be any worse than an old muscle car with stiff suspension or a 69's Z/28.

If you want a Camaro that rides great on the street..............................Z/28 is not yo car. Other choices though.

MR adds mass and complexity to a car that has one simple purpose for being. And riding well on the street simply isn't it.

Mag Ride suspension also makes the car ineligible for some track classes. Could be why they didn't include it.

Didn't know that. I'll bet you are correct.

I love reading the word "over" over and over again before 500/500 HP/TQ!

I'm guessing the Magnetic Suspension would add weight to the car.

Anyone who will be using the car to its potential will know how to adjust the 4 way adjustable suspension to ride however they want it and it will be superior to the mag ride for its intended purpose.

I think the over 500ft/lbs is a typo. LS7s make ~440 torque. No way they got 60+tq out of it.

That's the 2nd time I have seen it so I guess we will have to wait until they release the final numbers.
