1. That Z/28 splitter is awesome! 2. The pic is a little blurry, but the Z/28 steering wheel looks like it has the SS logo on it instead of Z/28. Can you confirm? Thanks for the pics, I am smiling ear to ear.

1LE: 1.58.85

I don't know about the stock SS, though, just the 1LE.
I think its around 2:06.xx

It's a pretty easy estimation since the Z/28, ZL1 and the SS have lapped the Ring & Milford. In relation to their lap time you can easily do the math and confirmed it by the same time since we have 3 different cars... makes sense?

Times @ the Nurburbring (dry lap)(rounded off at the second)
Z28: 452sec
ZL1: 461sec
SS : 500sec

Times @ Milford Proving
Z28: 114sec
ZL1: 117sec
SS: X=~126sec

And now I want to know the Mustang 5.0 Track pack best time!! lol

Thanks for the write-up and pictures! Any chance of some detail pics of the suspension from under the car?

Is there deer fencing around that place??? I'd be scared to death to do that anywhere in WI without it.

Noob question- why is there only 3 exhaust ports on the ls7?

Nevermind. It's a cut out view
I thought the same thing!!! I thought it was some "new" head configuration where they combined the exhaust ports on the two center cylinders!!! Good thing I pulled my head out of my @$$ and finally saw that cutaway view of the backside of that engine display!!! LOL....I'm such a dummy!!!

Is it just me or does the vent on the Z/28 hood look more open than the standard SS hood? I'm pretty sure it is. My 1LE's vents have a grate and water channels that don't appear to be on that hood. I wonder how the water channels and how the downforce changes with that vent.

I also wonder if they'll offer that hood insert for lesser Camaros... Don't see any disadvantages.

we know that the z/28 was 12 mph slower than the Zl1 on the backstraight(rain).
But did you guys know that it was only 5 mph faster then the 1LE and 8 mph slower than the 1LE on the stratight at Milford?
While it has 80 more hp the the 1LE and 75 less hp than the ZL1 it appears that maybe the downforce could be slowing the car down. IDk.
what do you guys think?

Gearing for tracking not posing.

It's pretty simple...

As a tracker, anything over 150 mph is wasted gearing for me. Posers will gnash teeth and persist in making it into a big deal.

No pricing was given. We asked but they gave us no numbers.

True that, gearing is always a compromise, your can gear for rapid acceleration (like coming off a corner) or you can gear for top end speed, you have to choose your priority.
