The RedDevil is probably the best sounding Camaro I've ever heard and certainly the best done. I wouldn't expect less from a GM engineer and the application of modern technology to a 43 year old car. The performance difference between these two cars isnt as great given the 600 lb weight and 240 lb torque advantage of the 69. Kind of like bringing a knife to a gun fight.

*sigh*

Where the hell does this sense of entitlement come from? They don't owe you shit. You chose to buy the car the way it is. Now either mod it the way you want it, or stop complaining.

I think we'll see it with the 2014, and something crazier with the next platform.

It's nice to see today's technology being able to be installed in yesterday's skin. I for one always wanted to restore a '69 Camaro, and seeing this just confirms what I really want to do. I see a fast, road/track capable Camaro in my future.

See, who needs magnetic ride? I'd take a lighter car with more HP any day. Dont need a warranty when I plan on modding it anyway.

Lighten up, it's his thoughts on a car that isn't living up to the numbers advertised.

The video is absolutely wonderful Camaro porn!! Don't be down on the ZL1 folks. It is with no modification within 2 seconds of a full on race car built by a suspension engineer!!! That is nothing short of incredible and proves what a fantastic car the ZL1 really is. Of course,,,, on the other hand,,,, if you are really disappointed in your ZL1 you could always give it to me.
