I am going to respectfully disagree.

the Z06 with Z07 package did the ring in 7:22, and the Z06 weighs in at 3175 pounds according to Chevy. The 3400 pound ZR1 with and additional 130 HP and 130 lb/ft did it in 7:19.68

The Z/28 is with the same engine as the Z06 is gonna weigh in at around 3800 lbs (from what we have seen), I know its pretty much a full on race car, but the suspension, tires, and brakes are gonna make up for that extra 625 pounds? I don't know that would be a hell of an accomplishment for team Chevy.

So my prediction is 7:30.00, which puts it right up there with some very high dollar, high performance cars
Weight isn't necessarily an advantage or disadvantage on a course like the ring it's more about the suspension and how well it can put the power down and keep it down. Without any other info I'm putting my faith in Stielow and his ability to make track killer cars. I'm standing by my guess. The 11" square tire config is going to do a lot to offset weight differences.

Touche, but there is also the extra 134 Hp on 130 lb/ft of torque in the ZR1 vs the Z/28

either way I am excited to see the times

Depends on which meds he uses on which days...or is that daze?

Here's a Pill quote, verbatim, regarding the Z/28:

"BTW, I am paying for one... If the production numbers are low enough and I can get one."

It weighs 3800 lbs! No way it'll be faster than a 458 with roughly the same horsepower!

Looks rough to me...

The Z/28 sounds great but it just does not look as smooth as the ZL1 in the small video portions I have seen.

The ZL1 video's on YOUTUBE and GM's website in the ring look much smoother then the Z/28. Admittedly, they are still dialing it in but I think they have more work to do.

I can say that it does not look as if it would be that comfortable to drive on the street as stiff as the ride looks in the videos so far. I am hopeful and optimistic they can live up to the hype they have created because EVERYONE is watching.
