Here's an overlay I made of the Z/28's run vs the ZL1's run.

Using sign posts as references it is about 7 seconds faster at the 5:41 mark. So it lost quite a bit of time in the wet on the back straight.

That is blisteringly fast!!!!
Baylor, well done on the overlay.
The Z/28 is around 6 seconds ahead of the ZL1 when he hits the start of the last straight. Then the ZL1's 13mph advantage catches it up a bit.
Maybe it's just me, but that's damned impressive.

No problem at all. I enjoyed making it.

I thought about that (I'm obviously partial to the ZL1, lol) however the audio in the Z/28 video is much louder than the audio in the ZL1 video. The Z/28 makes the ZL1 sound like a Prius

I will say that the rate of acceleration on the ZL1 was stronger.
The Z/28 is a 7:35 car all day long in the dry.

I need to go back to the two videos and see how much farther ahead the Z/28 was before the rain started which was before the back straight.
Yup. It shows you how the ZL1 pulls harder on the top end, especially in that long straight.

The Z28 had over 9 second on the ZL1 at 6m21s. Then the rain starts just before the long back stretch where the ZL1 gets some time back all the way to the end where the Z/28 coasted for survival.

The gap is deeper then 3.8sec.
After reviewing the overlay, the Z28 should be able to crack the 7:30.00

It's amazing how fast the Z/28 puts ground between it and the ZL1 despite the power disparity.

Was the Z28 smoother in general, less unstable throughout, or was it just a difference in the cameras used that gave this appearance.

My guess is cameras used / way it was mounted. The Z/28 video was in 1080p, but the ZL1 video I could only find in 360p. Could be different camera's. Not sure though. Some of it may have to do with the suspension, I have no idea though.

It seems the Z/28 was up ~10-12 seconds and then either the rain / ZL1 power and lower downforce on the straight reduced the gap. Impressive. The final lap time isn't the whole story here.

When I saw the rain, I thought "oh no!!" Did you notice the at the right wiper was lifting and not clearing the rain? Fortunately, the driver's side wiper worked properly.

Pretty freakin' scary that a nearly 4000 lb car momentarily loses contact with the pavement in a couple of spots. Great driving demo, by the way. I guess that's why they make the big bucks

Let me start by saying both are great cars....the Z28 sounds wicked. Hardly a scientific experiment though, and saying one is faster than the other based on this time is not valid. Too many elements that aren't controlled for. Not hating at all...I like and respect all kinds of cars...even Fords!

To try and show some perspective the Z/28 beats the ZL1 in the corners and acceleration. ZL1 does have the top speed. Proof is in the pictures.

Time for a cam and real headers for the Z28 then watch that number come down even more. And no dam rain. Way to go team Camaro
