Call out for all the 2010's
 
So I've been racking my brain looking over the net trying to find some fast Camaro's.

I see people gloating about all the power they make and what they've dyno'ed to the ground. Turbo cars single and double, ProCharged car's and cam only cars and all in between.
It's great people are making all this power but what good does it do if you dont take it to a track and race it. I didnt pay 40,000 to look at it and watch it collect dust.
Drive it like you stole it, what ever happened to this motto?

C'mon people, take it out to the track and see what its made of. Its only going to get faster if you drive the piss out of it.

I just wanted to rant, carry on.:facepalm:

I always look forward to your posts, as I know you are running your car hard and it is nice to see the times you are putting up. I have only been to the strip once this year but I will be going back this coming weekend to see if I can get into the 11's on the stock rims and tires. I will then figure out what I want to do with the wheels and tires. I was thinking maybe some 20" drag radials but then maybe 18" rims & drags. Not sure yet. I love to drive it hard and can't wait to get back to the track. My goal is to get into the low 11's on DR.

Yeah, not even driving them to utilize the power...but making big numbers on the dyno...:iono:

LOL great posts.

I am truly amazed at the many people, shops and vendors who have stepped up and are modding their Camaros.

Like the OP said we need to see more at the track.

There are several threads about the GM High Tech 2010 Camaro Shootout at the NMCA Finals in Memphis.

Several magazines will be there to cover some of the fastest 2010 Camaros.

I wil be there with my Camaro, we will be running a GM Performance Parts LSA crate engine.

Lets spread the word!

2010 Camaro Shootout at the LSX Shootout October 15th through 18th Memphis Motorsports Park

I think thats more because the Camaro is hitting a differnet market group than the 4th gens. I think its more Vette/bmw and some people who just want to have the newest car on the road, as opposed to people like us who just want to beat the $hit out of it daily.

My best is a 12.73 so far. Im getting my yank 3600 put in monday, then my resonator removed and getting it retuned. Im hoping for a very low 12. From there Id like to get Nitro Daves Money Maker put in the intake while having it ported. Im pretty sure Id be the first to do it to a 5th gen. So in two weeks or so I should have some more track times. I just wish I lived closer than 2 hours away. I would be there every week.

my best so far is 12.57 at 115.10.* first time at track my trans broke. next time i ran a 13.01 13.00 12.57. i have really bad 60ft times. 2.4 2.25 2.01. once i learn to launch and get out of the hole I should be in the 11's will work on getting my tickets up.

Holy hell a 12.57? what do u have done?

Speed74SS 09-15-2009 10:40 AM

What DR do you guys think are good? I am probably going to stay with the stock 20" rims and want a good DR. Should I pick up a pair of Nitto's or wait until next year and see what is out?

rodimus prime 09-15-2009 10:48 AM

I had good results with nitto 555r's on my 4th gen. Plenty sticky.

Cam,CAI,Kook Headers,Stage 3 Heads(not worth the money till a better intake is available)

Nitto DR - only option for the stock wheels at this point. Being that I am not very experienced at the track I can't really comment on how good they are. I paid $570.00 installed. I'll repeat what has been posted many times on here and told to me by many people- you really need to heat them up to get them to hook up.

Bro you need to get those 60s down. Was your 12.5 with the 2.01 60'?

A CAI and a tune alone should have you where you are now. I would get a second opinion on your tune or get someone that can launch to run it at the track for you. Your times should be hella faster.

How much power was it making on the dyno?
