    I wonder how it stands up to track use with regard to limp mode/heat soak?

    Now a stock Camaro can easily take 130mph turn@willow spring?
    Should we call it "Super Camaro"..

    It's amazing how modern engineering changes mustang and Camaro.

    The commentary earlier in the piece indicated that it has 11 separate heat exchangers (2 for the supercharger itself), and that heat in now a non-issue. Could have been a cool day with limited continuous track time, but it does bode well.

    Randy is definitely pushing the cars in T8 a bit more than when he started doing the Motor Trend laps.

    If you go THAT far off, you've really botched the turn.

    I'm wondering what kind of tires was on the Camaro when it did the hotlap (maybe I didn't catch it in the video). The ZL1 can do 86MPH minimum speed through turn 1, and maintained above 90MPH through turn 2, that's faster than Miata's with RC-1's.
    The OEM tires that comes with the car...Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2, is it kind of like Super Cup 2?
