Its 60* F Outside, did a couple of 0-60 mph run on my 2011 Chevy Camaro 1SS/RS L99 and timed using KAT Matrix Accelerometer. I got 4.76 Seconds(best time) and 4.99 Seconds.

0-60 time

Btw Im just using a stopwatch to time it, so theres a lot of variance there or I might be timing it wrong. Im trying to get a SCT Dashscan Data Monitor tho. Any thoughts about that?
I'm using a Passport G-Timer GT2 I got on Ebay and seeing 5.1-5.3 depending on temperature, humidity, and season on my 2010 2SS L99 and wondering why it's not doing better compared to times posted on this website http://www.sportscarstandings.com/Se...rchtext=camaro

One clue might be when I hooked up a ScanTool 425801 OBDLink and monitored the engine parameters during full acceleration, the accelerator position showed only 87%, throttle position 84%, and load never went above 94% to over 100 mph even with the pedal to the floor board. What's up with that? Maybe the factory de-tuned the ECU after numerous warranty claims for broken drive shafts, rear ends, and transmissions started showing up early on according to blogs on other websites.

I agree with Phenixdragon its all about the road courses. 1320 is what everyone used to worry about. Now its showing off your cornering and driving skills at a road course.

I did a lot of drag racing over the past couple of years when I got my first Camaro. Once I did my first autocross / non quarter mile race, I haven't been back to the drag strip since.

I'm still trying to understand what relevance 0-60 has in the real world.

Do a lot of people drive stoplight to stoplight from 0-60? We don't have any streets around here with limits >45. And who enters a highway from a stop?

Every time I try to enter a highway and some dolt in front of me actually STOPS at the end of the entrance ramp, I care a LOT about 0-60. And believe me, they like to stop there a LOT
