The SS 1LE uses MRC shocks. The ZL1 1LE uses DSSV shocks. Also, the ZL1 1LE replaces some bushings with aluminum, if I remember right.

It's on better tires and has better rear end grip for getting the power down better. That means the C7 carries its speed better through the corners. I wouldn't be surprised to see the C7 Z51 edge it...

The C8 Z51 was slower through the figure 8 than the SS 1LE. That’s not a good look for the halo car.

Based on the reviews, it seems this car was built to be a comfortable cruiser and not a high performance sports car. The only way it beats the C7 is in straight line acceleration.

I hope GM builds either the C8 Z06 or Grand Sport along the lines of the Z/28 or ZL1 1LE. They need a more focused car. Otherwise, we will see a C8 Z06 pushing 3800 lbs and the ZR1, if it has...

Sure, the Chevelle isnít likely to come back but the Camaro is at risk too. GM just doesnít know how to manage a sports car, other than the Corvette and Corvette basically runs itself.

I’m not a huge fan of the new HD look but it looks a little better here on the Colorado.

The off center bow tie is really annoying.

I’m looking at from the “it’s GM” filter, so you can toss the 4.5 out of the equation. I’d say the 6.3 AMG and 5.2 Voodoo are the best comparisons we have. Both make around 100 hp/l, so 550 is more...

Not sure these numbers make any sense. 600 hp and 620 tq out of an n/a 5.5 liter? There’s about a 0% chance that happens. 550 hp and 430 tq maybe.

What they need to do is take the 6.6 liter from the trucks and make it a high RPM screamer. If they can get 495 hp out of the base LT2, I bet they could get around 550 out of a high output 6.6 liter.
