Ohh....looks like some Camaro6 lurking is in order. Better make some popcorn first.
Let me practice and pose as a Camaro fan boy. The 500 had better tires. The air temp was better for the 500. Track was in better shape. I know, I know, remember I’m playing fan boy.
Anyway you slice it, the GT500 is hell on the track even being a heavy girl.

viper acr I believe is still the fastest American car at laguna with a 1:28.65
Surprising how he screwed up T2
Double apex is only for racing not to leave the door open... the fast/right line is a single apex.... just saying.......

Loudest and I'm proudest! It's a great car and while certainly not cheap a hell of a value. I drove the F8 Tributo the same week i picked up my Shelby. Enamored with both - but the cost differential of 235K is a chuck of change. And no a Ford is not a Ferrari. But my license plate is an homage to the legends. FVSF.

I like to disassemble things.
I feel like we've waited forever for this bonafide comparison to the lap times from the ZLE. Good stuff.

Here's my 2 cents..... take that same car and put it on a wide open flat out track, and the spread is even greater.

He's right..... its a monster.

Given some other current, ongoing threads here I grinned at this from Motor Trend's article tied in with this...

... per senior features editor Jonny Lieberman: "The GT500 beats up the GT350, takes its lunch money, and buys more gas."

It also demands respect. "You have to be very judicious with the power," Pobst said. "You got to have that egg between your foot and the gas pedal in the middle of the corner and just roll on the power. And if you do that, it transfers weight and just hooks up. It's possible to spin up the back tires in second gear, third, and fourth, but if you're just a little careful, it hooks up."
That's the GT500. Everything about it is intimidating and forceful. It attacks the road and isn't sorry for using the whole damn thing. Keep up or get out of the way.

"I was following the Ferrari F8 Tributo," Walton said, "and it couldn't shake me—not on the brakes, not in the corners, and not even on the straights."

Way too long. This is a great one with video to reference for both cars.

Sucks they didn't do the lighting lap this year. That's another great benchmark.
