1st time at the Drag Strip

One of the Radio stations had a cruise sponsored here with the final destination being the local raceway park. Running a basically stock 2010 LS-3 SS/RS my best run was a 13.7 @ 107mph. With a little more practice might have been able to get into the low to mid 13's. Only improvements to the car are a CAI induction and Stainless Works cat-back system.

My advice... New tires, NEW TIRES BADLY. when i changed my tires i cut over .5 seconds off my 60ft.... which equates to even more time off of the 1/8th and 1/4 time

It was amazing how fast everything happened when you get staged. Tires at this point still weren't the biggest issue ,it was processing everything that needed to be done to get consistent launches.

This is so true. I did my first time a couple of weeks ago. Even though I managed to get ten passes in my head was still spinning at the end trying to focus on driving the car

Glad to see guys getting out and enjoying these type of cars on a track or a strip. When I was a kid it was the drag strip every week. Now I'm so used to the road course I'm actually intimidated by the quarter. Something I'm going to need to face head on this summer. Just hope I don't pick the wrong car to go against in my return. There's a great vid on here of a Camaro leaving a Boss as if its standing still.

Not bad, just have a lot of room to work on in that 60'. Best thing you can do is get more seat time! Getting that muscle memory down is key!

Best regards,

Yeah those old g35's are slow, I can't tell you how many I beat in my v6 6-speed accord. I had learned stick shift only a week prior and it was stock, yet I still beat a g35 coupe... first kill in that car.

My bone stock g35 did DA corrected 13.4 @ 104 mph(13.6 @ 102.8 mph uncorrected in 1200 DA). The vq35hr g35 sedan is a completely different beast then the older ones, they put down 40-50 more whp on average and actually weigh slightly less then 1st gen g coupe.

Can you make up your mind which Camaro you supposedly own? Is it the red one you posted in this thread? Or the silver one?

I had an '00 Camaro ls1 6-speed for about 2 weeks, but it was craigslist deal from hell.... constant title issues, blew motor, etc. Bought it as a fun car to take to the strip, had heads/cam and 400+ whp with drag suspension already on it.

Ended up being a pos, long story I got my money back and it's gone.


So I bought a replacement for that car, bone stock 1 owner ls1. Going to build this car myself...
