Exactly! Right now the tires and brakes fall outside guidelines if I am not mistaken. Lots to spend on a car that won't pass inspection for most sanctioned races. If they can get the organizations to redefine quidelines, then we'll see. But til then you are looking at a 7.0 litre motor that also is outside guidelines. Super car..... like you say for the HPDE fellas! Just not sure I'd want to get a car I intended to race that fell outside so many specs.

Hope you can get 1 of the few hundred.

It will probably always just be a dream car for me but it makes me extremely proud to be a Camaro fan and we really haven't seen what it can do yet. Even without knowing the pricing I don't see how any true Chevy performance enthusiast that has the means could pick any other car. The creature comforts that are sacrificed wouldn't bother me one bit, specially with that glorious sound of an LS7 blaring through those pipes. I can't wait till the guys on here start lining up to get one. We are in great times!
Ditto! Agree! I needed to comment because I stated in another thread that the rear fascia was not a favorite of mine. However, after seeing them lit up and burning in this video, I take that back big time. If the other refreshed Camaros are the same as the Z/28 then I am a big fan. I know that this is a track car, but need the LED halos as option.
Great job!!!!

I don't think that's what she was saying. It was the actual cars capabilities. And yes the 1LE did help turn things around.

..perhaps you are correct, but, as far as performance goes, it was a weak racing scene indeed, across the board from all perspectives and manufacturers. Pardon my French, but the eighties sucked.....

WOW.... you guys are gonna have to cut it out.....

Y'all heard him say what I have been told this car is going after the GTR and GT3......... Dang the Mustang there are BIGGER fish to fry.....

If you gonna go to the mountain the goal should be on the top of the mountain!!!!!!!

That means its gonna have to be a high 10 second car because that is what that new GTR is doing.....

LS7 exhaust valves

Does anyone know if the LS7 exhaust valve issues that the ZO6 has experienced been addressed? Hate to have a expensive track oriented car with known engine issues.

Keeping the fuel on "E" keeps the weight down. Now after watching this video, I want one.

If you spend any time over on C6 ZO6 forum you see they all drop EX. Valves and GM has no fix.
