    Yeah

    I watched the GS Daytona 24hr preview on SPEED today, those Camaros look good. I'm going to be watching all day on the 30th. And I usually make it to VIR for the April DP/GS 4hr race can't wait to see them in person.

    I watched that show too. Pretty good watch. Seeing some of those garages and how clean and neat they are is amazing. It would be cool to see how they built those camaro's.

    ..well..all in all considering the weather conditions I think the camaros fared well #57 ..blew 5th gear but came back strong..to finish 4th overall..#97 car had a good showing too...finishing 10th overall in the GT class...they will be back...this is only the starting point..and many improvements will benefit the street cars from the trial and tribulations of the the Rolex24...

    Wow that was good. I watched a little bit on Saturday and they seemed a little loose in the turns at least compared to the Porsches. I missed all of today

    "They were really good looked like a boat compared to all the other cars tho "...I agree..they should be lower to the ground...especially in the wet weather

    They did look like big boats, but they handled well. #97 got together with a 911, they didn't have footage of it. But that made for a long repair. Too bad someone doesn't try to race a Lotus Elise, they make everything else look like big boats.

    require wider tires, better brakes and more power to do the same thing ours do. that's why I'm a fan of the Elise also.

    the tires on the maro are small as is as they are 8.0 -9.5 (which is the ws6 size.)

    i hope the camaro has better brakes than our 12 year old f-bodies.

    lotus' are a apple to oranges comparison to the maro...as the elise is a small two seater with very little creature comforts and is not mass produced as the camaro.

    so tell me again ..what PROBLEMS are there with that car since it is heavier ?
