View Full Version : 99 STS SS vert vs 01 Z06

So I met up with Doug tonight down in Irving. Nice to meet you btw.

403rwhp with a moderate Cam 2001 Z06...race weight 3250.


My STS SS Camaro (vert w/ large a$$ stereo system in trunk)...race weight 3950. I know...that's a huuggge bitch.

1st run...ran from 40mph+...I missed 3rd gear :(

2nd run...ran from 55mph+...pulled him by 1/2 a car maybe...he started in 3rd and I was in 2nd. (I was wondering when the hell you were going to shift! :jest:)

3rd run...ran from 40mph - 120ish...pulled by 1/2 to full car (his front bumper was at my rear)

4th run...ran from 45ish - 120ish...pulled him by a full car...maybe a tad more. Last race, maybe I got the jump a little, let Doug be the judge. But when I let off, I had around a car length in between us (I think).

By the 4th run, the turbo, etc was completely warmed up and I had some extra power I think.

Anyhow, Doug...had to post it, hope you don't mind. You're a cool guy and I'm glad to meet you! Your car is ridiculously badass! I can't help but think weight had a serious play in the outcome though. Sorry the stupid camera didn't work !!!


FYI, I posted this in the Texas section as well b/c that's where a bunch of d-bags say STS kits are worth crap. Doug (Z06) emailed me asking for a friendly get together so I called him up and met him.

Goes to show you how much weight affects a car. I had to go to a KB (now Whipple) before pulling on our Z06 with my Cobra our Z06 is about 400whp. Nice run, how much power you making?

at 6.5psi, i was making 466 and 475. The boost gauge only showed 4-5 psi tonight and for the last couple of days. Not sure if I have a leak somewhere...I'll have to test that out this weekend or next. :bang:

Of course everyone in the Texas section is hating already....

Go figure... Whatever though, they're eating their words.

well, you gotta think if someones skeptical of turbos, then STS's probably seem ridiculous.

STS is far from great..But powers power and his camaro is 460 at the wheels..Pretty respectable.

I use to get the same shit about my STS car until everyone seen what it could do against some 600+whp cars :devil:

Good race you guys.
