Watch both videos closely. Did you notice the difference in the Maro & the Vette when they hit the curbs when cutting the corners? The Maro just smooths it out while the Vette bounces & vibrates like crazy. The suspension on the ZL1 must be truly amazing!!

that is a very fast time i have to give it up to them! i cant wait till car and driver does the lightning lap so we can compare the numbers to the other cars theyve done!

on a side note, the ZR1 interior looks like its a carry over from the 90's that thing looks (and sounds) really plasticy

I might be wrong and I love both cars, but if you fastfoward to :38 on the following video


And :43 on the Zl1 video it looks like the Camaro has more control of the road (same spot on both videos)


Just my humble opinion

That was great. Need more. Watching this is like watching my nephew play Forza Motorsport on XBOX 360 only cooler.

I wouldn't be surprised if that was an induced drift by Tanner

Awesome times, both cars. Way to go GM!
I watched the videos of the shelby, zl1 and zr1.
Do they just start the clock after a hot lap?
The zr1 was doing 14x mph, and the shelby and zl1 at 13x

I noticed the driver doesn't turn the steering wheel much past 90-100 degrees, that's good for tap shifters on the auto.

Funniest line I've read all week. Perfect visual!

I'm thinking the Mag III will do wonders for the next gen of corvette as represented here on the ZL1.
