Because you guys like in-car video and telemetry so much... Camaro Z/28 in the wet. 


Discuss and critique in your usual harsh manner.

Car sounds good. The G plotter had the side-to-side backwards to my way of thinking - if the dot moves forward under breaking and rearward under acceleration, surely it should mve to the left in a right corner and right in a left corner (all of those being the direction you're pushed).

I feel like growing a mullet when I look at them now. A bit Frank-the-Tank somehow.

Not really wet was it? (and fair enough).


Interesting watching the GG meter in one corner, it tracks around from braking to cornering almost perfectly.

I was a bit surprised about the open exhaust. Unlike GM. Actually on the bumps and twists it sounds like it is a carby engine with the float jumping up and down. It needs some understeer dialled out. Plus the driver was not super smooth to flow some of those corners. Jerk it in, either make it push in or loose out. But quite fast on a damp track that would not inspire any confidence.
A bit faster than a blonde in a Transit Van!! Or a Taxi!
