Seems like they took an awful lot out of the Z/28 play book. (i.e. 305's on the front for the GT350R)

Car should perform on par if not a little better than the Z/28. I still prefer the Z though.

This is where people on the outside of the Gen 5 Camaro world get it all wrong. Truth is the Camaro doesn't need big tires like the Z28 to handle well. I actually realized that when I put stock 2010 wheels back on my car with my current setup and realized that with my suspension setup the car is really neutral and sits and handles well at the extreme. Even on Youtube they think the Z28 is compared to the GT3 because of the big tires and without them the car handles like crap. Not so. Also the Rs rear spoiler doesn't look right.

Nobody argued that. You asked why nobody mentioned licensing the tech from GM. I'm pretty sure anti-lock braking was a Ford first technology and now everyone has it.
