never driven these cars, but heard terrible rumors about them. Lets see if theyre true.
Some people don't like them, but I don't think it is because they are 'bad'. I think they are underrated because they are a street car and handle as such, rather than a race car. Going from all of the race content in GSCE to a street car with street tyres feels quite different.

I've read pretty convincing stuff from the guys at Reiza that the car handles pretty close to real life. It does take some time to get used to them, but once you do they are really fun. I am a bit rusty myself, haven't touched them in too long.

Here's a quote from Renato from another thread:

The real Camaro SS has cornering forces peaking slightly under 1G - most sources have it around .9g . That´s fairly within the standards of a sporty road car and would feel pretty darn solid in real life, but in a sim (where one can never quite perceive 150 km/h as 150 km/h) it might feel distinctively tank-like when coming from a full blown race car.

We had a fairly detailed spec sheet so not many question marks to the car physics in general. Tyres are never quite beyond any shadow of doubt, and the tyres in the Camaro like the other cars have received several updates along the way, but what we have now is certainly not far off:

Ok, I have never before driven this car, but there is always a first time. Does somebody have a good setup?
Sing me up, I'm sure to drive the second race, the first depends.
Thanks @Nox

I was racing this combo with @Stan a few days ago and he made this set, feels very good to me. I wish we had more roadcars in Reiza quality (and a Nordschleife in Kunos quality to use them on), to me the handling of this car is a 100% convincing.
Make sure you don't go too hot into corners to prevent understeer, then it's a joy to drive.
The sound is great too, when going side by side through corners you can determine the drift angle of your buddy by the amount of tire noise it makes :).
