When is gm going to change that awful interior? The rest of the car is cool(although a little overweight) but the interior is just debilitating!

did anyone else notice that the driver hit the rev limiter from 1 to 2 and again from 2 to 3! not doing that will shave a second or two off the camaros 1/4 mile times...

Seems like most actually like it except the critics doing reviews. They are the same ones who glorified the sleek body styling of an 83 camry.

They used the best run of the day not that particular one. They do multiple runs to get the best time.

But seriously whast the point in all this bickering over who's STOCK car is faster, when was the last time you met a true car guy with a 100% stock car? I know I'm already planning modifications I understand you guys are debating what's better out of the box but I'm an individual and when im done my car will be as well so bring on your roush your saleens and your shelbys, just refer to my avatar and know that I'm not worried.

I tried to be decent but that guy seemed to define ingorance, his points even conflicted.
Like how we couldn't speak badly about a shelby because we don't own one but yet he could trash talk the Z when he doesn't own one.

I'll go ahead and assume that they didnt since they DIDNT say that they did. Kinda makes sense now doesnt it?

If you really think a 4300lb supercharged car is a ideal auto x car then you know NOTHING about cars or racing. You say mumble something about heat soak as if your trying to downplay it as if it isnt an issue. Trust me its REAL! And it will def kill performance. Again if you dont know this then you really dont belong in this thread.
What 4,300lb car are you talking about?

If its the ZL1 then we are looking at mass depression in here and if it's the Shelby with the slower time the ford guys are gonna have to finally cut the Z some respect as an auto X car. Soon this will be put to rest.
Mass depression What?

S-t-r-e-t-c-h-I-n-g a little are we??? It makes you appear less than credible.

I will say the Recaros alone are probably good for 50lbs worth of savings.

Mass depression as this inside-line comparo is the one thing the ZL1 loyal have been able to throw there hat on. (Heck its the only thing to survive having the GT500 on the ZL1 section and not banashed to the "Mega-Thread.) Something to brag about over the Shelby. Look at the last 28 pages of chest thumping on how well the car handles over the Shelby to prove it. Now if the numbers from a REAL track come in and the Ford is faster the hat rack will not mean much. I honeslty don't know which car is faster around a decent track but I cant wait to read it, but if the Z is slower alot of wind is going out of peoples sales. If the ZL1 is faster MR is just short of the second coming, and bravo to GM.
