Do the M6 Camaros wheel hop as bad as the M6 C8 GXPs? My car is a wheel hopping machine. I'm not sure my engine wasn't replaced with a jackhammer sometimes.

Some new thoughts and some repeats:

Power passenger seat
Adjustable lumbar support
HUD with performance info (G's,HP, ET, etc)
Direct competition to the GT500... will let GM engineers figure out what that means

Graphics and body parts that set it apart from the other models but keep it functional... no fake scoops just for looks, no high wing just for appearance. Keep wheel sizes close to what they have now...

The Z-whatever will be my next car and I can't wait to see what GM comes up with

Hmm I would like to see

1. Lower curbwieght from, carbon fiber roof & fenders, alluminum doors, optional light wieght seats and crank windows. (somehow, cut 300lbs)

2. 295 35zr 20's tires at al four corners (thats 28.13" tall) wraped on 20x10.5 forged alluminum light wieght wheels

3. 3.73 or 3.92 gears

4. CTS-V brakes and if it is not too pricey the CTS-V like suspension aswell geared more toward performance.

5. slightly lower ride hieght

6. Either the LSA with more boost (the 2010 GT-500 is a bit underrated) and forged pistons or better yet the LS7 with more hp, say 550hp. (which would wiegh lighter)

7. front splitter and rear spoiler.

8. better steering.

9. Make the Z/28 a track monster.

LS9 all the way! there is no better motor from GM right now.
Bigger and lighter brakes.
Aluminum control arms like on the vettes.
Possibly a DSG type tranny that GM is working on...it's the way of the future and the most advanced type of tranny.
Lighter overall weight.
Wider wheels and not reduce diameter...they need to fill the wheelwells.
Front end geometry with no scrub...so it can turn on a dime.
As close to a 50-50 weight balance.
Competitive pricing.

LS9
I think the SS brakes are pretty good so I don't think I would mind those.
Slightly more aggressive or an adjustable suspension.
Wider wheels for sure!!!!
Unique hood and rear spoiler and maybe front fascia.

The title kinda gives that one away, LOL, its a pure "i wish" thread, not a bad thing though, everyone has stuff they'd personally like to add or remove

For me that would be the addition of a functional stinger hood instead of that akward bumblebee2 bulge, and the removal of a lot of luxury items (i could care less whether i can remote start my car, thats why i have a key...)

It should look different with a distinctive front fascia, it should be the meanest best looking Camaro, but subtle. Do not rice up this car !

SHELBY SUPERIORITY, in power and handling, a reasonable price tag, and I'd like to see this visuals package (front clip, hood, spoiler, grille, "tuning fork" wheels, ALL of it)
