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!
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.
