Just me or does the spoiler on the Z look a bit larger than the normal one? Maybe that is the 'extension' Al O. Was referring to in the Leno video?

Or maybe I'm just seeing things...

Wish there was more Z/28 in that video.

I wonder how much longer until we get a lap time.

Both cars look great out there but the Z/28 looks like its punishing the track. Hopefully we will see the full version soon. I don't know that they could ever make a Camaro I want more than this one. I'll have to settle for just buying a few parts from it which will still be pretty sweet.

Why would they ruin a Z/28 by bolting on a supercharger?

Superchargers are made for brute force. The Z/28 is all about finesse. Think cleaver vs. stiletto.

Al O. Said in the Leno interview there is a 'wicker bill' that attaches to the z/28 spoiler for increased downforce on certain tracks. Since it kinda looks like the spoiler on this z/28 looks a bit taller than the normal z/28 spoiler, I'm wondering if this z/28 has said attachment.

I'm picturing something like the spoiler on the zl1 carbon edition

ummm because 500 hp just isn't enough these days. of coarse there will be other mods as well. If you bought a new 70k+ camaro (estimated) would you want gt500's and zl1's smoking you at every light??? I know....the z28 is a track car.

Wouldn't matter what engine was in the Z/28, they'd still be smoking me at every light as I would not be "racing" against someone on the street.

Men, with a sense of responsibility to their community and fellow citizens take it to the track. So, I don't give a sh*t about any other car sitting at a stop light and I sure as hell don't want to be anywhere near a dickhead that wants to "smoke me" at a stop light on a public road. Of "coarse" any testosterone-addled douchebag that practices racing on public streets has earned the opportunity to have their car confiscated and auctioned off by the local po-po.

Driving in a straight line is boring. What I do enjoy mightily is honing my skills and pitting my ability against other drivers at a track event.

So, yes, you figured it out in your last sentence, the Z/28 is a track car, where a high-revving NA engine is usually the right choice.

Tell us about your left-seat road course experience?

This thing doesn't need as much HP as the ZL1 because it won't be a heavy pig like the ZL1. The Z/28 isn't about straight line acceleration. It's about running a road course as fast as possible. Bolting on a supercharger with all it's extra weight will ruin the handling they developed with the Z/28.

Look closely you can see how the Z/28 extension looks in the picture (see the link I provided above).
