G8 GXP and Camaro Differences?

I know its easy to say, A G8 GXP is a 4 door Camaro. Then I read that a G8 is a Zeta car and the Camaro is a Zeta II.

What are the major differences?

I think what you're talking about is what makes one the ZETA II and what makes one the ZETA. There is a difference in the wheel base between the two i remember that, but dont know the measurements. Also the suspension on the ZETA II is tweaked.

Zeta II is an upgraded, better platform than Zeta I.

I see Merlin gets the idea.. Can anyone be more specific on the ZETA differences? For some reason the g8 looks narrower than camaro.

I thought one difference was that the Zeta II front axle was moved foward about 3 inches so the car can handle larger diameter wheel and tire combinations. By my understanding.

The info does not exist. Fbod is the one who said zeta 1 and zeta 2, but he gave no details.

Maybe he'll see this thread and answer further.

No, the difference has been announced, back in august i remember reading on it. It has to do with the difference between the wheel base, the strength of the chasis. and the FE2/FE3 suspension usage.

I never saw that. If you can remember where, and post it, that would be super.
