2013 Camaro SS m6 w/ bolt ons vs 2017 civic type R

I've got a buddy that thinks his type R can take my Camaro. His is stock and mine has headers, intake and a tune on MPSS tires.

He says he ran down a Camaro SS on some back roads the other week. I'm pretty sure I can take him but I wanted to check with you guys first

You should easily beat him on the 1/4 and on most racetracks. His advantage would be a super tight auto-x course.

Nope with bolt ons, you should be able to take him easy. Civic Type R 0 to 60 4.9 seconds, 2013 Camaro SS 0 to 60 4.3 to 4.9 stock to stock

That's what I thought. I forgot to add my car is a convertible which adds a bit of weight but I still think I should have it. He wants to race from a roll too

The type R is an interesting car but like others have stated is really meant for tight autocross and roadcourses. Even a stock SS should have no trouble is a 1/4 mile. He may get a quicker launch but you will reel him in at higher speeds

Its not racing if the other guy isn't trying.

Also ... if you do race him, take it to the track.

Eh, back roads = twisties to me so I assume the same. In that case, it's all about willingness of the driver to push - as well as inherent talent + developed skill with driving + a decent chassis to work with. Don't need a powerful car to carry a lot of momentum.

And as was said, it's not a race unless they were racing.

Hey now, rice dishes are good. Nice to change it up from meat'n'taters everyday.

Camaro is a pretty good platform but it's not world beating by any stretch of the imagination.

That is true! And it would be on a track for sure, I don't street race

LOL. Yeah hate the coffee can exhausts. Sounds like crap. Especially on the otherwise stock, 1.6l automatic POS meant for MPG.
