Z28 TOP SPEED

I'd say a cool 190 MPH non-electronically-limited.

SS runs into aero drag at 174.4 mph.

If it is geared like the CTSV it could hit 191. The GT500 ran out of gear at 184.7 mph.

With warp drive, the jump to hyper-space would be mind blowing !! I say that it can take the Millennium Falcon like it was standing still.

CTS-V does 191, apparently so I don't think 195 is too far off the mark

I wouldn't expect the power or aero to be much better for the Z28 than they are for the CTS-V so ultimate top speed is going to essentially be the same. But the Z28 should get to its top speed quicker.

Depends on the tires they use. That WILL be the limiting factor, as usual.

Ran out of gear as in what, redlined in 6th? That would probably be over 250MPH. I think it hit a wall of drag like the SS.

In the episode of Top Gear when they ran the Camaro with slight mods to the engine against the Mustang with engine mods, the Camaro got up to 189mph within a mile. They said the turbo they put on it was underpowered, but it was clear there was no aero drag problem with the car... So I think the Z28 could easily be made to exceed 190mph...

With GT500 gear ratios its 6th gear can go over 250mph but I think what the editor was trying to says was that its top speed of 184.7mph was at its 5th gears redline. When you shift to 6th it slows down. If it had a longer 5th it might of went faster.

It ran out of gear in 5th gear.

I don't know if either the SS or the GT500 could pull in 6th gear at those speeds/rpms.

I didn't say their was an aero drag problem with the camaro. What I am saying is that at stock power the car runs into a wall of air at 174 mph that it can't overcome.

Of course when you have engine work + turbo you can push through the air harder.
