Default Mach 1 vs LS3 Camaro

Cliffs at the bottom.

Unlike most people on here I just go to work and back home and that's all the driving I do in my car and it's always in rush hour. I haven't had a race since last fall when I ran the LS1 Dodge Ram. I'm driving home from work this evening in a good mood and I thought to myself it would be nice to have one race. Not two minutes later I spot a Midnight Blue (my favorite color) 5th Gen up ahead. I'm catching up but I'm also getting closer to my exit onto a connecting road that I take in my commute. He's a couple cars ahead of me in the other lane and then merged into mine. We both end up taking the same road. We get stopped at a light with him in front and me right behind him (1 lane.) He gives it some gas and I stay right behind him.

A few miles up the road divides into 2 lanes and I take the other lane and we hit a red light. He rolls down his passenger window and says "your car sounds awesome what do you have done to it?" I told him and asked if he was an auto or stick. The oncoming lane now had a turn light so green is nearing. I asked if he wanted to run up to 50 (40 limit). He said sure I'm already late for my meeting. The light turned green and we were off. I pulled a fender then hit 2nd and got a little loose in the back as I was fighting for traction. Pulled it up to almost a half car and shut down around 55 and he kept going. He kept going and then finally he slowed down. I gave a thumbs up to which he returned it. He said man I missed third.

Meanwhile a half mile ahead I see reds and blues and my lane of traffic is completely empty. I merged in behind the Camaro and got into the middle turn lane. He gave me another thumbs up as I turned off on another side road. I don't know if that cop had already been stopped or if he was waiting on us but I wasn't about to find out. There's no doubt in my mind in either scenario that he heard us.



*Cammed Mach 1 beats unknown mods LS3 by a half car from 0-55.

Nice ninja editing..

Yea... I read the cliff notes then decided to read the story. If I didn't read the story I would have assumed it was a 4th gen with a LS3, usually when people refer to new Camaros the say "5th gen" or "201x Camaro SS"..

Except when they are telling the difference between a stick or auto.

Not surprised at all. I have been really wanting to run a stock 2010 Camaro SS but every one I come across around here the owners do not race then, just putt around town.

I'm not too fond of going a lot over the speed limit when I'm in town during high traffic time. It just takes one person not paying attention when turning onto a road to ruin everyone's day.

How many times are you going to repost that video of that poorly driven Mach 1 losing to that GTO?

NIce kill. The 5th gen owners here used to be your 5.0 is slow. Now they have seen my cars transform and they are like ya its fast. They are more show then go. And a few of them look real cool. Just not enough hp to back it up. The only ne that does will not race. He has reasons why can't run. Was suspension. Now its tires. I am just waiting.
