    2011 LS3 Vette(auto) vs 2001 Camaro Z28(manual) VIDZ!!!

    First vid he told me instead of me leaving on the 3nd honk i left on the 2nd, said i had a second head start as an example. I left early even though we didnt honk since we couldnt hear each others cars. Towards the end of the vid you can kinda make out a backfire from my exhaust cut out underneath the car. I missed going into 5th gear since i wasnt sure if i wanted to go any further with the race, either way as soon as i f*cked up i saw in my mirror he was gaining and there was no point. To be fair to the vette, its brand new and not broken in not to mention its bone stock and i have 4.10's which gives me a good jump.

    This second vid is me in 4th gear and him in 3rd. Reason why we ended up doing that is that i was killing him on the start and we figured me being in 4th would be a better race but i got killed bad and gearing was too long.

    We had 2 other races towards the end as well which he did not record and ofcourse were probably the closest races between us and he did really well. The races he didnt record are the races he beat me and was pulling on me by about 2-3mph and then once i got into 5th it was a slower pull for him. Either way his car is faster and broken in it would've murdered my car. I was expecting to lose bad either way and again i have much respect for the LS3, gm did a great job. Took the vidz down

    LS3's out of the box have been hitting high 11's with street tires, seen it in person at Bremerton Raceways in WA.

    ^Not suprised, after we raced he gave me a ride in it and when he floors it at lower speeds and the way it accelerated my heart just drops and hands would get weak like im going downhill on a rollercoaster ride. I was suprised i didnt get pulled harder and just figured i got lucky.

    Even the Auto's are stupid quick. Well you raced one hahaha. My buds 470whp Cobra only pulled a LS3 Auto vette by a few lengths.

    nowadays 6 speed automatic Corvettes are faster than manual equipped ones.
