I think the Camaro guys have a lot to be proud of. 2003-2005 Z06's avged mid 13.5's stock. Camaros are heavier cars, and generally not considered in the same league performance-wise. It would be interesting to see what an LS-7 powered Camaro could do

Very nice, we new these cars would run 12s in cooler air (61 degrees - great for racing).

Great time.

Very nice. Where is there 61F temps still in July? Send some of that down here!

1320junkie, you should put the DA next to each time. More accurate info, the better.

You are kidding right, you may want to review your stats According to you a stock LS1 Camaro runs about the same or faster than an 01-04 Z06 despite having less power and higher weight

BTW there was no 2005 Z06

On topic: Crazy bad arse time there. Would love to see a video of that beast roaring down.

Well done. Grab a 2.0 60ft and let the power pull the car to a low ET. Good to see the ET more in line with the trap.
