Al O all but confirmed they're working on a new manufacturers championship series which will require the car be street legal to qualify. Which explains why Dodge and Ford are jumping in at this (expensive) level.

...posting before watching the clip, there's been quite a delay. Rationally, I don't see a reason why there has been such a long time inbetween testing footage. Me thinks there are things still to be sorted out. October price and information release?

And the dam axle cv boots. I've had issues with all of those.
a cam will get them to 550whp

at that point what more do you need?


If you really want forced induction the smart move is the ZL1. An engine built for boost and a beefier drive line to boot

Please take the bickering to PMs.

I can't recall hearing a factory exhaust note better than AMG-cars, until now. I swear on my clutch foot that the hair was standing on the back of my neck for the entirety of both videos. I thought Z/28 sounded better before I heard Stingray. Stingray just rocks. I think part of it is the induction noise, but I just LOVE it.

I know the manifolds and larger pipes of Z/28 are different than ZL1. I wonder how much more power they provide. Probably not a whole lot, but living where I do, factory appearance matters. For the first time, I'd entertain the thought of getting OEM exhaust, lol! KUDOS GM!!!

Remember, the ZL1 is a one lap wonder, but that first lap is usually a very, very fast lap... If the z28 is down 12mph on the 3km straight, it will be hard to beat the ZL1's time... I think that's a 7-8 second loss right there... I'd have to do the math."

guess who wrote that nonsense in another forum???…hint…"make up". When a keyboard jockey uses the word "impossible" that should tell you something


I figured the "lap of the gods" needs to get done around now so these new videos make sense in the timing and can't you just tell the z was eating the 7.

You forgot about the weight difference. The lesser weight of the Z/28 should be more then enough to make up for the horse power. The gearing could make a difference too.

I agree with the latter...the z looks stiff as hell and with the ls7 on tap and decreased weight I see the z putting a 5-10 second faster lap then the zl1. they just need to get a perfect lap down. there is always something as a driver around the ring that has u saying "I could have taken that one turn better". remember, the z will cost a lot more than the c7 and produced in fewer numbers so gm is making damn sure it can lay it down numbers wise.

Man I wish I had my camaro when I went to the ring. I ran a 2000 Saturn ls2 on the ring in 2008. I was still passing people In that car. At that time it only cost 10 euro a lap.
