Yep. That was the fastest test of any Camaro to date (2012s and up never re-tested), and I believe it was b/c that car wore the lighter 19" wheels with the P-zero rubber.

No other reason for it to be faster than their previous testing which was on the 20" wheels (although they did mention it was cold outside in their first testing of the Camaros)

Nope, when the sun hits the green paint it adds 200 hp and looks sexy as hell.

Even then he has NO torque steer or wheelhop at all, he has taken the necessary steps to eliminate it. You need to educate yourself more on them, just because a fwd car has power doesn't mean it has torque steer.

FWD is just more efficient in lower hp applications, 240 whp rwd car has no advantage over a 240 fwd car both same weight. Because that's not anywhere near enough to overwhelm the front tires. My friend cuts 2.0 60 foots in his v6 accord manual on all seasons, yet most rwd cars at our track struggle to get 2.1-2.2 on all season street tire.
so you are essentially saying the Honda s2000 would have been better built as a FWD car?

And BRZ's, Miata's, etc. I think he's probably getting confused between his freind, who does know what he's doing, and many other people at the track, who do not know what they're doing.
