Considering the extra heft the GTO is pulling around, that's not an unreasonable claim. What, are you pissed because you love your car and have developed some sort of dillussions as to its real abilities? Look, I know my car isn't the fastest thing on earth. I realize it is armed with the lowest output of any of the mentioned cars. But, due to the weight of the GTO and it only coming with an additional 45 HP, I have and will continue to beat stock '04 GTOs. If you don't believe it, too bad.

    Just keep in mind no one said the '04 GTO is slow. Just that it's not as quick as the rest. If it really makes you that mad, mod yours or trade it in.
    Thanks for the advice. I will keep that in mind.

    Things to do:
    1. Chill.
    2. Eliminate my "dillussions".
    3. Mod my GTO or trade it in.
    4. Get a hair cut.

    3. C5 / 05 GTO (with a slight nod going to the GTO)
    4. LS1 F-body / 04 GTO
    May or may not be funny, but it's accurate.
    2) The C5 Z06 will consistently beat the C6.
    3) Uh, no, wrong.
    4) LS1 f-body will consistently beat the '04 GTO.

    Blanket response to all of the "you are wrong the GTO is slower" people:

    What you believe to be accurate is not really a concern to me. Say what you want, my personal experience has shown otherwise. I am not going to waste any more of my time or yours arguing about it.

    Yeah, especially since the EVO clearly OWNZ all of us 95%-96% of the time. (see above stats )

    I guess you could say I have a beast, but Im still on the stock turbo/clutch, so I dont think so. Using my stats to predict your next outcome of a race with an EVO is not a good idea, as your mods may me much greater or less than the next EVO you race. Im not going to go over all of my LSx races, but I have had my fair share, most have been bolt-on equipped, couple stock, 2 cammed, 1 H/C. The 2 fastest ones are actually my friends (H/C SS & cam'd TA) so we've had plenty of times to mess around.

    the 04 gto has 350 hp tq of 365 ft/lb and has a curb weight or 3725..i believe a trans am as approx 3400 and even tho is rated at 320, in reality has something more like 345 and somewhere in the area of 350 ft/lb...if the drivers were identical, how can u justify that a gto is as fast when it has about 300 lb more than the f-bodys?

    What does a bone stock ls1 f-body run in the quarter mile? Not the best ever, or the worst ever, just a typical quarter mile time for a stock f-body?

    An average driver on street tires will run anywhere between 13.6-13.3. A good driver on street tires will run between 13.3-13.1 On drag radials an average driver should be able to run 13.3-13.1. A really good driver should run between 13.1-12.8.

    I came across a z28 camaro today on the highway. He was driving really agressive so i thought this might be my chance from a roll. I slowed down to about 50mph and dropped to 3rd gaer. I saw in my rearview that he is passing cars like crazy and once he got next to me i was gonna let him have it. Well he got next to me at a fast pace and i WOT on 3rd and leave him behind to my rear bumper. Then he slowed down. After i slowed down and there was a car in front of me, He wot's and takes off. I can hear his exhaust pretty loud. Are they loud when stock?? I thought maybe hed slow down to really go from a roll but no luck.

    Funny, I came across to LS1s this afternoon when I went for a cruise, both didnt wanna mess around though. Badass looking black TA with nice wheels and a stock looking Z28 with exhaust.

    I actually have to make my way to the track soon, too much street racing. I think I live closer to Atco but Id rather go to Etown from what I hear. I assume youll be in the LS1 tomorrow? I dont think I could handle a 454ci

    BTW what is a TCI-SSC? Transmission related?
