I'd be interested in seeing how the FE4 suspension changed things for the 2012 Camaro SS lap time compared to the 1LE and ZL1.

Has the Boss LS beat the GT500? Being that the ZL1, GT500 & 1LE ran the same day this would provide a good base

Also wondering how a plain SS would do. Impressive for the 1LE and ZL1!

I also like seeing that Z06 do so well against the higher priced Nissan GTR's.

The LS has not beat the 13 GT500. I don't think it really matters. The old GT500 was slightly faster than the 12 Boss, and I don't think there has been enough of a difference between the 12 and 13, if any, to make it any faster. Either way, the 1LE and the ZL1 rocked it. Very impressive times.

Yes, but not the sub 3 minute times for the 1LE as promised. I think a 1LE vs Boss LS rematch is needed. Same track same driver. Is there a comprehensive 1LE vs Boss LS track test? I have only seen 1LE vs standard Boss test and at that not much info on the track test.

I'm sure a driver with more seat time would be able to crack 3:00. No doubt Chevy engineers have run sub 3:00 there
Chevy got the ZL1 around in 2:52.4

Gotta love the LL "oink". This is good, especially if and when they make a police version of the "SS" sedan. Go Chevy

Wow can't believe how close the 1LE was to the GT500. Guess the Ford boys are stuck a few decades in the past where all you had to do was go straight.

If you can't beat them in a straight line I guess the only saving grace is in th turns.

Nice showing for both cars. I usually never look at the SVT forum but had to look. A few comments about the ZL1 beating the GT500 by 3 seconds and they seem to be trying to ignore it. Facts are facts and the camaros ran well. Obviously we all know in the 1/4 mile the GT500 is stronger. All around the camaro shines pretty well.

I cannot wait to get my car to a road track next spring to experiece it like many have.

I'm more impress with the fact the ZL-1 is 2 secs slower than a 375k base price Lexus LFA 60k > 400k lol lose a few pounds and the ZL1 could shave that margin easily.

I think what's good also, is that, the GT500 beat some of the more pricier cars in it's category. Don't worry...not trying to justify anything, just saying this is great for the American auto industry.

Chevy all the way, baby

So true....but wouldn't even take that much. Weight is the only thing I really hate about my car. If it weighed in the 3,400+ lb range instead of 3,700+ like my V6 currently does I'd be extremely happy.

Everyone knows the GT500 is built to go straight, but the ZL1 being faster than a C63 Black Series and as fast as a 911 Turbo... Those cars are actually built to go, turn and stop.
