Default 2001 Camaro vs 2006 GTO

So a buddy with his GTO called me out last night. Was having movie night with the wifey and kids and couldn't go. So after leaving our friends house tonight, he seen me out and caught up with me. Went to Mexico for a few runs. 1st run was a dig. Only launched at 2k rpms since all it does is spin Was reeling him in and missed 3rd, got it and and catching him again when the curve came up. 2nd run was a 30 roll and I put 3-4 cars on him to 120

Mods are
Camaro: LQ4, MS3, 243s, LS6 intake
GTO: Stock

Holy missed shift batman!

Word of advise, cars dont like it when you miss a shift like that and then continue to jam it in there and race.... next time just abort the run man.

That shift... Ouch. Need more practice, especially on your launch. You're gonna get fucked by AWD cars with a launch like that.

Yeah when I replayed it back, it hurt all over again lol. And I was trying not to spin. I hate these tires. I can't get them to hook for ****. I almost ended up in the ******* ditch on the 3rd run. Stalled it up to 3k and an up thru 3rd and it pitched me towards the ditch when it finally hooked

Y'all need to rewind and find where I told him to do the MGW FIRST!

Best mod, PERIOD. Pro 5.0 is worthless in comparison. Not even the 400$ Hinson is as good.

Still have the 3.42s in it. Thought about going with 3.73s or 4.10s, but I need to get it to hook with these first.

Get good DRs, I can hook a 40mph roll at 20 psi tire pressure. And I might make a bit more powa than you.
