Day one in the Z/28. Not sure how many customers will see these temps when they buy their Z/28, but you can rest easy knowing the Camaro team has you covered at -18 degrees. #thisisatrackcarforgodsake!

Nice; thanks for the pix! Is anyone else bugged by how the speedo goes from visually-impaired gigantic numbers to type size suitable for the disclaimers at the bottom of ViagroŽ ads? Note that this is about as significant as the latest news reports on Justin Bieber, but I wouldn't mind replacing this with a proper gauge...

I'm really hoping they tell us that adding red and blue elements to get the full range of colors would have added 8 ounces to the car...

I would pass on that while running the little 65lb injectors,should of ran the 850cc like those of us with ZL1 found out watching others go lean with the smaller injectors.. Running the meth kit just to keep it safe,I am guessing that the meth kit is also good for about 50- rwhp..I gain that much with my srt10 when we installed the meth kit...AS back in 2005 there was no dual program's (or programable msd)for the viper power train,and if you wanted to keep the timing in,meth was the only real safe way..
Anyway nice car,but i would swap out a couple things really quick if i purchased that...just my 2 cents..The Z is looking better all the time..

No suspension upgrades or brake upgrades. Yep, the pucker factor would have been huge with the price increase of adding the CF rotors and brake upgrade and punching the brakes
