    Sounds good and looks good. If I decide to come back to GM for a new car, I will definately wait for the second year car. Who knows what kind of kinks they will have to work out. The dealer here said they are taking deposits but I don't trust anyone there.

    The new MARO looks cool and sound's good.. By the time this thing comes out i'm gonna be blowing them out the water..

    And the "SS VETT" looks good too... but will it hookup.. the LS-7 hardly even hooksup.. and with a supercharger.. Look out
    maybe if you got slicks..
    its gonna be squirley

    I'm sure they'll have some beefy tires out back to help put the power to the ground. Probably like 335's or something, and I'm sure they'll be top grade, probably Eagle F1 Supercars or something along those lines. Combine that with a world class suspension setup, limited slip diff, and super tall gear ratios (1st gear in the Z06 tops out at 60MPH) and it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

    I hope they'll do come out with an SS Vette. That would pave the way for an '09 camaro z11 w/ls7.

    Please stop calling it a "maro!" It sounds great but it's not going to be the production exhaust. They may as well call the new corvette an "SS". They have whored the "SS" badge out so much that it needs a deserving platform.

    It is anoying how every damn chevy vehicle has an SS version. It doesnt have any respect anymore. Its kinda like dodge throws SRT on everything.

    Soon to come:
    Cheverolet Aveo SS!!!! With 120hp!!!!!

    The Z06 and Viper have massive wheels and they do just fine.

    You have to remember, much of the size of the wheels is offset by the low profile tires, so the overall diameter of the wheel/tire isn't as large as you'd think.

    Well I think they're shooting for ~3500lbs, so with the 400HP LS2 and T56, I'd say mid-high 12's bone stock, so like ~12.7, provided you can get traction.

    I'm not totally convinced that IRS is our friend yet, I'll reserve that judgement for when the reviews come out and I actually have a change to drive one

    yeah.. i was kind of thinkin that too... if they kept the weight down.. I like the look on them.. but I think they need some options on the grill and bumper in the back.. I think it looks more like a vett from the back.. Do you think you will trade your F-body for that..??

    If it comes out looking like the concept (or better), has the LS2 and a 6speed, and a damn nice interior like the concept, I'd definitely consider it depending on the price, ect.
