Supposedly that guy's first time at the track with his 2010 camaro and car only has 500 miles on it so far.

Looks like a lot of the others who ran a quarter mile and posted crappy times earlier were newbs to the track or didnt know how to properly launch this car.

That is a great time but I am suspicious. Not all the times posted so far have been from inexperienced drivers and this is substantially better.

I believe the times. Mine went 13.0 in much worse weather. I could have gotten a 12.9 with any sub 2.0 60' time. It is all about practice, and getting a feel for the car. They will go 12.6s in cold weather bone stock, count on it. Even my pass corrects down to a 12.71 in better weather.

I think the only other time I've seen a sub 13 second run reported on a stock car was motortrend's results. But I think that might have been with a gtech and not at the track?

i wouldnt say all day but they ran it enough.



i think 5th gens are capable of a 12.6 based on their trap speed.

I agree, we will be seeing 12.60s popping up out of these cars when the cooler temps arrive.

That'll be fun to see. Think the car is capable of 11's with just a tune?

That is the best M6 pass Ive seen but still slower than me w/ more power, less weight and better weather.

Most of them don't. Most M6 drivers can barely run 13s due to no skill. I put two bone stock LS1 f-bodies into the 12.8s with zero mods and zero weight removal. That was almost a decade ago, in cold weather on a great track. The same cars in the summer were 13.2 cars.

The 2010 Camaro is quicker than the 4th gen, sorry that some of you guys are in denial. My 2010 went 13.0 in HOT weather, with a crappy 2.05 60' time. None of my dozen or so LS1 f-bodies ran 13.doh in the heat.

My 2010 went a 12.77 in 86 degree heat and a near 2700 DA. Tuned and a muffler, stock rubber with a 1.89 short time. Stock weight at 3985.

cant tell them that. because to them their 4th gen is better than the 2010 in every way. kind of like how a 3rd gen is better than a 4th to the 3rd gen owner!

i'm sure gm put the 5th gen up against every benchmark set by the 4th gen and made sure they could beat it in every way possible

hey Tony.. i met someone you "might" know...

name is John Lamb.. bought a black 2000 trans am brand new... he was going stock internals and got real close to be up on the top of the list.. he is from TN..

he was a moderator he said when tech.com first started up.. but then phased out of it..

he was showing me some video of when the shootout was up at beech bend.. your car and colonels? car along with a few more quick cars..

just wondering, you probably dont.. but..

why in the hell would they do this? or why would they care..

the 4th gen isnt even in the same class... nor is it in production anymore..

it was going up against the challengers/mustang/etc..


ls1s dont run 12s all day long.. nor is it anywhere close to the norm... its more like a needly in the hay stack..

ls1s are low-mid 13 cars.. some bad drivers are slower, some good drivers are faster.. but that is the "norm"..

the 5th gen is running low 13s with bad drivers and hitting high 12s with good drivers.. times will only get better..

some of you boys with stockish cars talking **** on the 5th gen are going to be mad when you line up against one.
