V8 will have a little more trouble in the slalom due to the weight of the car.
sure wish gm could have figured someway to keep the weight down.
They could have put a V6 in it to save weight. :thumbsup:

Instead of focusing on it as "V6" vs. "V8", think of it as "small engine" vs. "large engine", or "SBC" vs. "BBC" -- the main difference being # of cylinders now rather than cylinder centerline separation. If you compare the V6 power curve with most of the stock V8 Camaros, it doesn't look very anemic. Comparing the power outputs of the modern LS3 & the garden-variety big-blocks of the 60s & 70s is pretty favorable, too.
