wich is the best handling f-body
Facts are not facts.C Murda said:well lets just use for example the best factory "race models" for each generation the 1LE....3rd Gen 1LE off the show room floor pulled 1 G while 4th Gen 1LE pulled .95 Gs. facts are facts. given the 4th gen does have SLA (Short/Long Arm) front suspension GM didnt do much with that just helped in making the 4th gen a better riding car. the Macpherson strut style suspension isnt great but other characteristics of the 3rd gen make it great for that body style except for the harsher ride quality.
seeing as from the factory the 3rd gen is lighter and shorter (body height) this gives them a better COG too.
oh and SCCA racers prefer the 3rd gen F Body over 4th :finger: hehehe
i cant find where i read it but it was the best recorded G's of both Generations. True, there are limiting factors but these were best recorded numbers off showroom floor so im sure they compared other trial runs.Chris 96 WS6 said:Facts are not facts.
1g...in what magazine. Skidpad is 1) not a very good test of handling and 2) vary wildly from mag to mag, pad to pad, day, weather, etc. etc.
Lets get both out at Road Atlanta in OEM trim and see which one wins....
I couldnt agree more. All my friends think that they are junk because of being slow. Fast isnt everything im always first to tell them that that iroc that just passed will outhandle your stock suspension ls1. The iroc-z's rear 1le sway is a key and like ^^ said give me an iroc slap some coil overs on it and its over. And as far as the 4th gen people hating on 3rds. i will sing a iroc-z's praise all day long.C Murda said:the only thing i hate about 4th gen owners (dont get me wrong i love them too) is that they stereotype the 3rd gens as sh*t.
