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.

TC 09-15-2009 09:40 AM

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.

TC 09-15-2009 11:37 AM

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?

TC 09-15-2009 12:19 PM

I know, but I'm never gonna learn if I don't do it myself.

Tune is fine, driver that needs the work. Dyno was at 470rwhp on a mustang dyno.

Still trying to get time slips up.

You might be a troll if:
You go into forums for product you have no intention of buying.
You repeatedly tell people why the product you bought is better then what they bought..you repeatedly tell them 67 reasons why.
40% of your posts are releated to the direct competitor of the forums products.
constanly inserting snide remarks about the product but then insert ;) to get mods to think your just playing.

LOL, I love your sig, it is so true.

You combination is very close to what we did in the second phase of our Hot Rod story. Mine made 464 at the wheels and ran 115 plus in the quarter.

I took a lesson from the OP and used a set of Mickey Tompson ET Street Radials on ZO6 18" front wheels. That helped my 60'. With the Nittos I was spinning through 1st,2nd and part of 3rd gear.

My car also weighs over 4000 pounds with me in the car. I also have a bronze metalic clutch in the car. I slip the clutch and this deal holds up run after run. No stink like the stock rag clutch.

I launched this thing at 6000 RPM and it BOGS LOL. A little slip helps get the car rolling.

Good luck!

Robin

TC 09-15-2009 03:17 PM

Should have gone with the smaller wheels and tires.

Anyone interested in a almost new set of Nitto DR's

How much for your clutch set up?

What did your best runs clock in at?

Ran 11.90's with a small shot before the Mickeys and Kooks headers. THat was at 118.

Added the Full length headers and the short (fugly) tires and ran 12.10 at 115.3 off the juice.

Then I tried a .063 jet at 100% on the controller. The car went slower ET spinning through 3 gears and ran the 125 at the stripe LOL. It was ugly.

I needed to make some more passes to find out what it liked but that was the last pass for the night.
We got our results so it's on to the next deal for me.

Don't know the cost on the clutch. It's probably near 500 to 600

Robin

TC 09-15-2009 03:37 PM

I'm heading to strip tomorrow night. Hopefully I will continue to improve my launch and get some good numbers.

I'll be keeping a eye on your progress in Hot Rod. Feel free to update us before it on the stands though.
Thanks for your input.

Speed74SS 09-15-2009 09:12 PM

TC - I would be interested in your Drag Radials if you want to get rid of them.

The best time I had at the track was a 12.6 on the stock Pirelli's with a 2.2 60'. It was humid as hell that day and the track was not prepped. I am going back to the track this Saturday and the track will be prepped and it should be cooler with less humidity. My car dynoed at 518hp and 503tq to the wheels. I have G-Teched it and it did a 12.2 at 120, so of I can get close to that on the stock tires I will be happy but I am shooting for high 11's.

TC 09-16-2009 05:35 AM

Speed,

I am checking into the cost of smaller wheels and tires over the next couple of days and will pm you by Friday if that's the direction I decide to go.

Nice car by the way, I've been watching your build, looks like everything so far has turned out great. Enjoy!!

Sounds good - I look forward to seeing what you do. It is nice to see all different kinds of builds. I love these cars!! Nice times also.:thumbsup:

Are you power shifting or granny style?

Your run from the 8th to the 1/4 should be faster too.

FYI my LT/CAI l99 8th mile trap speed was 87.7 and I ran an 8.30.

From there you had 88.7 and ran an 8.26.

What happens after that? Your car with over 100 more rwhp only puts 2/10ths on mine.

I hope Im not coming off like a jag or anything, as I would really like to help you out. If I had one guess I would say your granny shifting. Leave the pedal to the floor through your shifts. Its kind of scary at first, but if you practice it, it will become natural when racing.

TC 09-16-2009 09:51 AM

Rodimus
To be perfectly honest with you, I have believe that it's all in the driver. I'm keeping on the gas till just before I hit my rev limiter, off the gas til after shift then back on the gas. I have only been down the track three times.
I'm going tonight and hoping my times will get better with more time in the seat. If you have any suggestion (granny shifting) I'd love to give them a shot.
