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.

Chevy Camaro ZL1 - 2.57.5
Ford Shelby GT500 - 3.00.6

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

Oh its there....and trust me, some of them watch this forum like a hawk and then post what we say there, and then they have fun stomping on it on their forum.

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.
