Having driven one, I can tell you that you do not notice the weight at all.

I've driven LX cars (Charger/Magnum/300), and they're pretty good at hiding their weight.
But Camaro feels much lighter.

I would compare the drive feel to about that of a C6.
Not quite as light feeling, but almost.
The tightness, acceleration, and handling are all right there though.

wont feel like a corvette prolly will feel comparable to a hot rod magnum....like johns....drool...so john wanna sell her?
If I ever did decide to sell her, Dave you would have first crack.;)

And BTW, Tim's right about the LX cars 'hiding' their weight. The long wheelbase and wide track area they have help the handling quite a bit.

I've never driven a C6, but I love the idea of having a car that handles comparably.:roxor:

My Magnum is an 08 SRT8 and I spent the day cleaning it up for winter storage. I sure hate to go so long without driving it. Don't sell her if you don't absolutely have to. There will never be anything like them again.

Not likely I will sell her. I've never had a car that performed as well and look as unique. ;)
