Hows the handling?

SO, I'm close to receiving my camaro and I thought about how badly i want a really good handling car and I was wondering how the car handles? If anyone has ever driven a subaru or any other good handling cars, can you compare the two? Does it have a lot of body roll around turns?

I think the LT has a little bit softer suspension than the SS, so perhaps a little more body roll, but everything I've read says it keeps the tires to the road on uneven pavement and around turns even better than the SS. I think many who have one will testify that they handle very well.

Body roll isn't the issue. If there's an issue with the Camaro's handling, it's that you're probably used to the feel of a smaller, lighter car. The Camaro is big, and feels big. Just like in the past.
