Wow. This might have been said already, but so much for the Laguna Seca only being a few seconds slower. Great Job!

It's official, I'm buying one. Maybe not today or tomorrow but in the next few years. It's a ton of money for me for a car but you only live once and this car is too badass.

I don't care if you are a ford or Chevy guy the bottom line is these two companies are building two awesome cars right now. When it's all said and done they are producing two cars that perform on border line super car level for 55-65k and that is awesome. Gotta love american muscle!
Correct!!!!!

Looking at the videos of both cars the ZL1 Camaro was pulling 1.3Gs at time in corners where as the GT500 was pulling some 1.2Gs. I even saw the ZL1 Camaro blip the 1.4G barrier on some corners, though its not close to the Z06 pulling 2.0Gs on the ring. Though this video wasn't from the ring, still though there is a difference and thats it.

The ZL1 Camaro us pulling Gs in the area of the 2006 Z06 Corvette while also accelerating pretty close to it. I can see how the ZL1 Camaro can run near the same lap time as the early Z06 Corvette.

I just don't see how the GT500 will be able to keep up with the ZL1 on a track unless the track is very much top end dependent.

I'll stick to the Ring as a measuring point
The time used for reference on the 'ring, is for the Z07 package with upgraded suspension and tires.
The ZL1 suspension is more advanced than the Z06's or the ZR1's for that matter.
So yes, it's very possible for the ZL1 to be faster than the Z06.
