For the first generation Camaro the Z/28 was the most expensive Camaro out there (sans some COPO cars). In later generations of Camaro the Z/28 was either the top V-8, the only V-8, or under the SS...

On a roll race AWD is a liability and not an asset, the DCT transmission along with gearing is why the ZR1 Corvette lost in that race. The car that holds the ring lap time record is a RWD and rear...
