Not so long ago, the idea that we could have road-legal pony cars like theCamaro ZL1 and Shelby GT500 producing 580-662 hp and getting around a race track at these kinds of speeds would have been deemed ludicrous.
Now both of these venerable machines are running with the exotic big boys.
The Camaro in particular gets a huge benefit from magneto-rheological dampers that previously have done wondrous things for various Ferraris, the Corvette ZR1 http://www.autoblog.com/2009/05/11/review-2009-chevrolet-corvette-zr1-goes-to-hell-and-back/ and the Cadillac CTS-V http://www.autoblog.com/2009/06/03/review-2009-cadillac-cts-v-supercar-performance-everyday-driv/.
A big thumbs up to the GM engineers that originally developed these continuously variable dampers back in the 1990s.
