Wrong. The Camaro SS with the 1LE package rides on the same tires as the ZL1, Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2, just in a smaller size(285s all around, I think). These are high-performance summer tires, sticky in their own right, but not that sticky. The Boss 302, in LS trim, rides on Pirelli PZero Corsas, which are DOT legal r-compound track tires. The only Camaro that comes stock with anything stickier is the Z/28.
Also, even though the Camaro has higher displacement, the Boss makes more power, 425 vs 444. It's also about 600lbs lighter than the Camaro, too.
So yeah, when you actually know something about the cars, it's still quite impressive.
