Post So who do you think got it right?
Since they are now designed after basically the same car, who do you think made the more bad ass ride Chevy/NASCAR or Holden/V8 Supercars?

Please... is that even a question, Nick? :screwy

The only thing I have against Holden is that they aren't offered in the US...

I assume you mean as a Holden right? The Chevy SS is a Holden Commodore, like the G8

Yes yes, as an intact Holden... The Chevy us ugly IMO. The G8 was beautiful but prematurely killed off.

It would be interesting to see the difference on a road course... I know the Holden would KILL it under braking... Stupid NASCAR.

I dunno, NASCAR has some pretty serious brakes for their road coarse cars. They weigh fairly close to the same, V8 supercars are around 3300LBS with driver/ NASCAR gen 6 car I believe is now 3400 and has a much lower C/G and way more mechanical grip than than the COT. I think on a tight windy course the Holden would have it, but toss in a few long straights and you may be surprised. They should race both at Austin *hint hint NASCAR**

Actually, I have a better idea, pack up the stock cars and send them to Bathurst, make them man up!
