i'm a bit dissapointed because i thought the higher ponies and lighter weight in the camaro would overcome the better gearing in the g8. Anyone know if chevy will offer equal or better gearing in the camaro?
Dissappointed? Wow. Those 0-60's you quoted, were they from the very 1st reviews of the GXP or later reviews, or actual times outside of the reiviews? I would venture to say that the Camaros numbers will improve. That being said, I think the Camaros numbers are just fine. IMVHO
