I'm likely alone on this but, I wish GM went with a smaller displacement V8 or even V10 with a high rpm limit than try to stick to the specific displacement limit for racing. The only way I can see...

I'm sure that wouldn't be the case but, I was just trying to emphasize how the differences seem relatively negligible, which was to be expected.

I think that was a great run. I'm happy to see that he didn't try to shift the car himself. But I do agree with the sentiment posted here that it would have been more advantageous, in an ideal...

Let's be honest with ourselves, when is that going to happen? Do you really think that people will do that? What has stopped them from doing it already? I really don't think that executives are just...

There's such a unique duality that I see throughout this thread. Unions, for better or for worse, represent their work force. People on one end seem to think that the workers in the assembly line are...

I had purchased a 2016 Camaro SS A8 initially. I knew of the prior 1LE's and always wanted a 5th Gen variant when I still had my 2014 Camaro. I didn't know if GM would continue on with that...

I can understand that. When I had my 2016 Camaro with an A8, I really missed having a manual transmission. I eagerly traded it in for my 1LE. I did have issues with the A8 and had my torque converter...

Ah. If that's the case, I suppose that's fair. I'm more concerned with taking care of the paint, wheels and cooling aspects rather than adding more power. My better half just wants to hurt feelings...

There have been "hot" versions of the LS3 and LT1 for a while now. But I don't see any reason whatsoever for GM to increase the horsepower or torque ratings on any of the 6th gen Camaro's.
