    2010 SS Camaro Road Test

    Sorry guys didnt know were to exactly post it but since its the new camaro i thought you guys would like to see it either way. I thought for some reason it would be faster 13.0 quarter mile at about 111mph and .88 G's was a bit suprising in a bad way. Maybe because its heavy, not broken in yet, the driver wasnt very good, i dont know but was expecting it to do a bit better at 420HP. Either way its a nice looking car.

    I think the big rims and tires not being wide enough really hurt it. At the same time 18's wouldnt look so good on a big bulky car like this unless its really lowered and what style of 18's you use. I just think the rim and tire combo is a handicap, they shouldve gone a bit wider at the rears atleast. Either way on the second link that doozjamann posted shows about the same E.T and MPH but i think is a better video. Kinda found it funny that they said the V6 is almost as fast as the 02 V8's last time they tested.

    111 mph is enough to run high 12's on stock street tires, and low-mid 12's on a slick.

    Skip shift again? Yuk.

    this is what i'm saying--- if they're getting 13 flat out of it, it will be a 12 second car stock.

    They ran a 14.0 in an LS2 GTO when they came out...

    They were comparing the GTO to the WRX STI and were clearly biased. After watching that video and reading some of their articles I have no respect for them whatsoever.
    Bone stock I ran 13.3 consistently in my GTO. I am not the best driver in the world but who ever they had driving the GTO was obviously horrible.

    IMO, those #'s are phenominal for that vehicle. GM expected low 13's, not 13 flat! I am definitely impressed. It's a full 1/2 second faster than its nearest rival, and our cars were not that fast from the factory. Lets just hope these cars take to mods like the LS1 does!! I forsee quite a bit of 11 second 5th gens!

    I wouldn't be surprised if they made high 10's with full bolt-ons....at sea level anyway, Luos could pull a 12 out of it
