So that makes me think that GM is sandbagging, in a good way and rightly so at this point, the true potential of this car. The weight loss could be good for .5 second, deeper braking 1-2 seconds, and the aero for another second.

This new Z/28 should easily run with GT3RS's and base Corvettes all day long.
Tires good for 5000 miles at the most.....track days about 500-1000 miles
2017 Grand Sport, Borla X Pipe.....Enough Said
