Just remember, these are the official numbers and should be the gospel as to what the Camaro is and is not capable of, regardless of the test conditions and/or the driver. That was/is the standard of measurement when talking about other makes and models like the Mustang and the Challenger, so we need to be consistent in how we use magazine review numbers.

I don't care what someone else is able to get out of the car on an actual track, these numbers MUST be used whenever a comparison is being made on the internet. Agreed?

Well, looks like we will need to keep the Camaro on the dragstrip. Afterall, if the 2010 Mustang GT is only a one-trick quarter-mile pony with it's handling numbers, the Camaro is going to be downright dangerous!

can someone explain what this exactly means ''The combination is good for drama-free 0-60-mph sprints of 5 seconds (or 4.7 seconds with a 1-foot rollout like on a drag strip).''
read it at edmunds. thanks

at the track, the time doesn't start until you move about 1', depending on how you stage.

Edmunds didn't give the camaro as good of a review as I had hoped and I agree motor trend whooped it up, even posted some better times. I know I will be extremely thrilled with mine. This wait though is killing me....
