soo, is this ignoring the 4.8/4.6 est and saying what we think it should have been? cuz in that case a 4.4 was my original guess.

if you calculate the g8 gpx has a similar engine so 4050/4.7 = 860.
camaro will be more arodinamic so 3860/860 = 4.48.

lol im 100% sure thats not lagit but hey

lol my post makes no sence. because i simply divided the heavier car into 4.7 and that = 860 but on a lighter car...... im a dumbass lol.

according to some calculator http://www.wallaceracing.com
i put the ss camaro weighs 3868 pounds has 422 horses shifts six times has 4.33 tire height and geared at a 3.45

it says 1/4 mile at 12.21 and 110 miles an hour
at 3860 pounds for a ss manual at 422 hp it should run.

1/8 7.70 at 88.24 mph.

i put it in the 0-60 calculator but it says 3.56 although id be happy with that i know the 0-60 is wrong
a dif site says 4.41

actually the camaro is less aerodynamic...

I can't remember where it is but I think Scott said due to the front clip that drag coeficient was high.


Edit:

It wasn't scott.

here's the post. FWIW

0-60 is nothing but a function of the driver's ability to launch. If you want to talk about how fast a car is you talk about the quarter mile, more specifically the trap speed. On T&T night at a local dragstrip I beat a stock (I assume) WRX by seven tenths, which is buslengths in a quarter mile race. That same car would be competitive if not faster than me if just measuring 0-60.

I'm going to say 4.6 sec. for the LS3 but I want it to be 4.4 sec. I'm hoping for a 12.6 quarter mile time.

The reason the numbers are not coming out right is that the car won't shift 6 times in the 1/4 (at least I think that is what you meant). Actually, the manual car will shift into second just before 60 (about 55), and the auto shifts into third at 66, which is why the auto runs much better to 60mph. And in the quarter the manual uses third gear through the 1/4 mile (to 114 mph), while the auto shifts into 4th gear at about 102. This is why the auto has a slight edge, it is geared more aggressively for acceleration than the manual. Don't ask me why they did that, I would think you could dedicate 4 gears to the 1/4 mile run with a 6 speed manual tranny, and still have plenty of room for overdrive, but oh well. They really geared this thing to keep revs low to help fuel economy I suppose.

As for the calculator, the manual car will shift only twice (1-2, 2-3) in the 1/4.

I guess 4.5 auto, 4.8 manual
12.9 auto, 13.0 manual, both at 108 mph
