I'm more into brute force acceleration than handling, so the first vid I watched was the launch development, but honestly, I thought the handling one was even more impressive.

When I saw what the G-meter was reading I was just ........Pretty unbelievable numbers for a car which will more than likely weigh in at 4,000lbs or more.

My reaction to those videos was similar to when I saw the concept "unveiling" on the internet and again when I finally saw it in person at the Kansas City Car Show...........the hair on the back of my neck stood up, I felt goosebumps on my arms and my eyes "misted" a bit.

Exactly! I'm no professional race car driver, but I've been "around the block" a few times as the saying goes. The in car footage was astounding. I could actually "feel" the car being pushed through it's paces as if I was there controlling it, from a litteral hands on perspective. It handles all the forces of physics amazingly well. One can't fully appreciate whats going on there if you haven't done some competition racing or high speed driving. I am still all worked up from viewing the footage and my thoughts are pre-occupied with this car!.

Yeah, I'm wondering what kind of skidpad numbers we'll be "grabbing."

The way this beasty sticks to the road is phenomenal, and those vids include a passenger & a couple of hundred pounds of test equipment. Just think about that.

I think the third gen Magnetorheologicalwhaddayamacallit is going to make this Camaro insanely quick around curves.

Oh. My. God.

This is seriously amazing. I cannot wait to see more numbers on this car. And God I love GM...this is exactly why I'm going to school for mechanical engineering. Hope to work on things like this one day.

Seriously though...just...wow.
