Stielow comments on the Z/28; pricing to be announced after the 1st of next year

The car is nutty fast. The corner speed at high speeds is a bit intimidating to start off with. The brakes are also crazy good. I have been to the Nurburgring over 10 times with a lot of programs but this was the best trip so far. Once you get used to the speed and grip the car is very comfortable at speed. The car does make down force so when it gets airborne you can feel it really float.

We test during the Industry Pool days (IP). The IP days are for just the OE manufacturers with certified drivers. So the only time you can video is during rented track time. So we ran faster times in the dry with traffic. I had a chance to square up with a few GT3 and it was a hoot. The Porsche guys also had their 918 there this trip. That is in another league of car.

If anyone is going to SEMA Lat-G party I can bore you with a few stories. I will not have a new old car at SEMA but the Z/28 will be. My year has been spent working on the Z/28 project, moving and getting married.

I'll have a new car next year. Charley is going to let me use Mayhem at OUSCI this year. :thankyou:

Mark

Good to hear from someone that actually knows what they are talking about. It should clear up some of the rumor and speculation out there. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for posting this Justin!

Money quote #1 " So we ran faster times in the dry with traffic."

Money quote #2 "I had a chance to square up with a few GT3 and it was a hoot."

Money quote #3 "I wasn't asked to make it cheap... I was asked to make it FAST!" That is my new signature line - f'in aye!

-''So we ran faster times in the dry*with traffic."
- "I had a chance to square up with a few GT3 and it was a hoot."

I wonder if those 2 quotes were complementary to each other?

Were the GT3's traffic?
