While not as wide, the GT-R's Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT600 DSST CTT tires are semi-slick as well. And it gets power to the ground through all 4 tires, and has a DCT, as opposed to only RWD and manual in the Camaro...
That said, the Z/28 has a weight advantage, torque advantage, far superior brakes, better aero-dynamics for aimed for down-force and grip, and arguably the SSV suspension is superior as well(for a track)...

those insanely wide semi-slicks made all the difference
