    Mid to lower 13's in the 1/4. Hell of a launch (awd) but tend to give it up when aerodynamics comes into play. Can't tow ANYTHING because of where the exhaust exits in the rear. Fuel economy.... terrible.

    What's done to that Camaro?

    TBSS can be fast too. Just changing the converter they took a second of their 1/4 mile time.

    My best friend owns one. Like above said, the launch is crazy. No spin, just hauls ass. So, depending on how well your launch is in the LS1, it would be a driver's race. If you get a decent launch, you should pull them on the top end.

    Brick on wheels however can be made fast... Then again everything can be made fast, just how deep is your wallet.

    Does the TBSS have a tow rating??

    Been interested in those for a while. Would be a few years before buying, but if I could pull the car around with it and use it as a daily driver....that would fucking rock.

    I leased an 07 TBSS awd... and I towed an enclosed tandem axle trailer with 3 quads with no problems at all. The rear air leveling system kept the truck from squatting and driving it, I had no issues at all. And then I'd take the trailer off and bust 13's at the strip.

    Without towing I think it's supposed to be 14/19mpg.

    But honestly, unless you got a diesel, you probably aren't gonna get shit for mileage while towing with almost any vehicle.

    That's what I got... average 14mpg... the best I did was 19.4 while driving the Ohio Turnpike.
