IRS

What are your thoughts on the independant rear suspension for the new Camaro?

I think its overdue and as long as it is 1) sufficiently strong and 2) not much more expensive, it is a good idea.

If it drives the price too far above Mustangs then the car is doomed.

The way I see it for a normal consumer it's a great thing. Better ride quality at not much more $$. But from a racers standpoint, give me a solid axle any day.

I think it's great for Camaro.
The ride quality from IRS will give Camaro a leg up on Mustang I would say.

Us drag racers might beef about it a little, but we'll get over it.

Besides, when done right, IRS is fine for the 1320 too.

I would like to see a solid axle option for the car available. I don't mind the IRS, but they have to do better than the CTS-v IRS b/c that thing is like driving w/ a glass rear end.

Not looking forward to it....give us a strong 12 bolt from factory and sales would be better IMO.
