If we knew the psi in the tires and how much fuel was in these cars would really tell the whole story. No excuses it’s just really important information

I think I had 1/2 tank, I'm not sure about him, my back tires have 22 psi in them, he didn't spin. He had some sticky tires on it, not sure what psi though, lol. I have some toyo tq drag radials on mine.

I think their whole idea is to have the comfortable boat that can still run 12's. I don't care, I still love them and would be driving one if I could have found an RT scat for $36k.

Lol that lighter frame has been cancelled and then back on then cancelled again etc.. However Dodge promises a lighter frame for the 2021 models not holding my breath lol after all Dodge has made a killing off their current frame

You can never have too much information -

Asking a few questions tells his Camaro will trap around 130 (skill and traction depending) with his well thought proper set up.

They always seem to be late on things look at all the talk about the hellephant and it just got dropped this week for order. If they somehow got the 392 into the 3700-3800 pound range that thing would be a handfull for sure.

what I find funny is some people say that my car is like a boat. It weighs 3700-3800lbs, evidently not heavy compared to todayís standards. I guess itís heavy when you compare it to a civic or something. But comparing stock for stock to an f body is not a huge difference in weight. My 5th gen camaro weighed 3900 (I weighed it) and it was a stripped down 1ss model. These cars that weigh 4400....geez.
