    Man that Z28 is fast as hell with only 500hp. Comparing the videos, if they actually were on the track at the same time, the GT500 wouldn't have even seen the Camaro for much of that lap. The GT500 makes up a lot of ground on the longer straights though.

    Posting this over there will result in BAN, and I'm not kidding. The Camaro camp will not tolerate any video posted proving the ZL1 isn't the superior animal they believe it to be.

    Rios302, you forced Travis to go straight up legal on you.

    OK, back to dogging the ZL1. Heh!

    I think the GT500 was a smoother driver overall between both vids. I put that down to the superior driver, however: both Cameros bobbled pretty badly on a few turns that the 500 went thru pretty smoothly.

    My take is this: Sid was right, GM was a little fast/little slow on the start/stop buttons on the stopwatch, on both vids. At one point, the 500 was a full 10 seconds adrift of the Z28 (by my admittedly defective mental count), but reeled the Z in pretty quickly on the last straight. If they had a bit more straightway, that Z would've been put away. :pop:

    But, what should we expect?? GrumbleMumblers are such a sensitive bunch, I guess it's all that grit in their girly bits. :rockon:

    At least Ford didn't have to rip off the taxpayers with a "bailout" that was "paid back" at a significantly lower interest rate than we poor sots have to pay. But that's what you get when your CEOs spend their time flying around the world in private jets buying off politicians, instead of focusing on their core business like Ford does. :bash:

    That awkward moment when Chevy owners think to themselves I should have gotten the GT500.

    This might add to the discussion.

    Milford Road Course lap records - FastestLaps.com

    Lap times (5)

    Pos Make / Model Time Speed (km/h) Year Power (hp) / Weight (kg) Driven by
    1. Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 1:53.71 148 '13 507 / 1702
    2. Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1:56.58 144 '12 588 / 1838
    3. Chevrolet Camaro 1LE 1:58.85 141 '12 432 / 1757
    4. Ford Mustang Boss 302 LS 1:59.05 141 '12 443 / 1652
    5. Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 1:59.97 140 '13 659 / 1750

    This is a tight track that keeps the speed down to what you'd often see on an Open Track day for street cars without cages.

    What is kind of interesting is to look at the HP numbers. They appear to be measured numbers, not advertised numbers, as is the weights.
