Extensive lightweighting saved 300 pounds over the Camaro ZL1
To optimize the track performance of the Camaro Z/28, the engineering team subjected it to an intensive lightweighting program, saving 100 pounds (45 kilograms) compared to the naturally aspirated Camaro SS and 300 pounds (136 kilograms) to the supercharged Camaro ZL1.

This makes no sense the way he said it. The ZL-1 is 300lbs heavier than an SS. Yet the Z/28 is supposed to be around 300lbs lighter than a ZL-1 AND 100lbs less than an SS. Shouldnt that be 400lbs less than a ZL-1? I mean Im no mathmatician, but as long as I've been knowing and been taught that 4100-400= 3700.

Life is short, drive it like you stole it!
