Default LSA G8 vs A&A C5Z

Had some fun with a buddy. His mods are only an A&A kit on 10lbs, makes 560whp. My car is fbo, small cam, lsa blower on 12lbs, e85, and makes 620whp. Camera car is a 4th gen camaro with a 408


view from the 5.0 in the far left lane from the first video

I haven’t weighed mine yet, but other LSA G8s I’ve seen weighed are around 4200-4300lbs without the driver

Haha the owner is a cool dude. His car runs good for just being bolt ons and e85

Thanks man! The camera car gets down too. No one knew it had a 408 until after the runs lol. We were so confused why it ran so good.

I think the Vette dude sucks at driving his car or there's something wrong with it. 1,000+ lbs lighter, much more aero and only down 60whp...shouldn't get walked by like 10 cars. The Z should have won. And there was a big puff of smoke coming out the tailpipes on every shift.

The owner can drive just fine. He beat a C6Z that made 540whp by a couple cars. My car may or may not have made 620 on a notorious low reading dyno lol

Unfortunately no. Closest 1/4 track is over an hour and a half away. Only car to go off of was the exhaust/cam c6z that trapped 105 in the 1/8th. Him and the C5z would go back and forth pulling a car or two on each other. Hopefully some more cars come out this weekend for some better comparisons.

It's hard to go off 1/8 mile trap to tell anything.

Yea it sucks that’s the closest track to me. I’d like to see what my car does on a different dyno because I’ve been told by a lot of people that the one mine was on is notorious for reading low. Car runs great so I can’t complain
