That's just it. The GT500's chassis is NOT half competent.

The Camaro ZL1 chassis is, like the 1LE SS Camaro, very competent. That car turned a 7:41 at the 'Ring, comfortably ahead of the GTS bimmer.

Most folks on these forums thought the GTS M3 should've been quicker around the Nurgurgring than it was, it being essentially a race car along the lines of the Viper ACR. Street legal, but barely.
