So three major items shared vs no items shared is a beautiful thing!

As I read it they note the suspension is different, no surprise there at all, probably all heim joints (spherical ends) and solid bushings which are miserable for street driving.

Thanks for the linky!

Quote:
Developed alongside its production counterpart, the Z/28.R incorporates the same performance elements that make the 2014 Camaro Z/28 the most track-capable Camaro ever. To enhance grip, for example, the Z/28.R’s body shares the same downforce-generating aero package as the production model, including:
Front splitter
Rear spoiler with wickerbill
Hood extractor vent
Rockers, wheel-house extensions and front tire deflectors
Belly pan.

The Z/28.R is also powered by the same LS7 7.0L V-8 engine as the production Z/28 and employs the unique, helical-gear limited-slip rear differential found on the production model. It is standard in the Z/28, helping the driver put down more power to the pavement when exiting corners.

“Apart from series-mandated equipment and the specialized suspension components needed for endurance racing, the Z/28.R is as close to a production-spec race car as you’ll find,” said Kent.

You don't have a pill for this, do you?


The beastliest Camaro will duke it out in the GS class of the IMSA Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge. Its first race will be the 2.5-hour Daytona Rising 200 enduro this Friday, which is being run ahead of Saturday’s start to the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Of course, if watching the Z/28.R circle a track isn’t exciting enough, you can always gather up $75,000 and buy a regular Z/28 of your own.

That "Pill" won't go down very smoothly I bet.

Of course goodbye to the airbag system and interior. The GS.R used 7 lb carbon fiber doors. Would imagine these have the same.

I'm very disappointed no one is running this in the top level series. The Continental Series gets very little air time and nearly no live air time.

Chevrolet likes the Corvette for the Tudor Series. Even if it was in the Tudor Series it would be a Pratt & Miller built tube chassis, carbon fiber body panel clone purpose built race car like the SS in the Rolex GT.

I used to love that the previous cars were SS's but as a Z28 I am still proud for a Z28 to be a race car for real
