Looks different than the Z28 tail lights, probably different lights with the RS package compared to non RS.
Here's a larger picture of the RS tail lights, I like the Z28 ones better..

I've seen the design in fairly good view. While I still have a couple of reservations about it, I feel that it was executed well (even the rear)

Give Chevrolet their due!

The Z28 is great. Still not sure i'm crazy about the SS refresh though. I don't hate the tails anymore.

2. We get an update later this year for the ZL1.

Either way, the ZL1's sole purpose now will have to be taking on the GT500 (almost said Boss haha).
Agreed. The ZL1 will need to be upgraded to create more distinctiveness from the Z/28 and also to be more competitive with the GT500. Its time for the ZL1 to break through the 600hp barrier. The Z/28 comes standard with CAI and the ZL1 does not? A good CAI and retune will push the ZL1 north of 600hp.

Personally I think the new Z/28 looks bitchin but not digging the tail light treatment. As a ZL1 owner I want something extra for the ZL1 to keep it at the top of the Camaro food chain..

And one last thing, I want a set of those recaros.. very sweet..

Reading the specs it looks like they spent some time reading my project thread lol

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45165

I remember taking a lot of flak on the forum 3 years ago when I switched from 20's to 19's.

"The Camaro Z/28 features 19-inch diameter wheels and tires, which reduce unsprung weight by 42 pounds (19 kilograms) per car compared to the 20-inch wheels standard on Camaro SS and ZL1. In addition, the smaller diameter wheels lower the center of gravity by 33 millimeters, further improving handling."

I switched to the lighter RacingBrake rotors. The new Z/28 brakes should have incredible stopping power.

"To fully exploit the grip of the Pirelli tires, the Camaro Z/28 also features Brembo Carbon Ceramic MatrixTM rotors and fixed, monoblock calipers. The large 394 x 36 mm front rotors are paired with six-piston calipers, while the 390 x 32 mm rear rotors are paired four-piston calipers. Compared to similar-size, two-piece steel rotors, the lightweight carbon discs save 28 pounds (12.5 kilograms) per car."

"Other examples of weight savings include:
Eliminated the tire-inflator kit, except for Rhode Island and New Hampshire, where it is required by law
Removed interior sound deadener, and carpeting from the trunk
Replaced the standard LN4 battery with a smaller, lightweight, LN3 battery
Specified thinner, 3.2-mm glass for the rear window, compared to 3.5-mm glass on the standard Camaro HID headlamps and foglights are not available
Air conditioning is only available as a stand-alone option"

"The team was so fanatical about saving weight, we even stripped the unused wiring out of the harness when we eliminated the fog lights, speakers, and air conditioning,” said Oppenheiser. “Every ounce saved contributed to making this the most track-capable Camaro we have ever built, and a worthy successor to the Z/28 name."

They had Mark Stielow in charge of this performance-wise and it shows. This car is killer in the performance department. I like it. Except the back of the car. Which can be fixed. Hmmm..... to buy or wait for the 6th gen. That is the question.

I think this is weighing on a lot of people's minds right now. The camaro Z/28, while lighter, still weighs in at a hefty 3900lbs. While that's better than what it was - with the Alpha platform the car would be a feather compared to the current offering...
