Stock 5th Camaro SS 0-60 mph times.

I know GM said that 0-60 mph for 5th Gen Camaro SS was 4.6 s auto and 4.9 s manual (better with a better driver). But it seems that most vids, and my own personal experience, that the times are usually around 5s to 5.5 s. ANd for my auto L99 powered SS it runs about 5.7s-6 s. 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 believe that normal reaction time is 0.3 seconds. That being the case, you could be off 0.6 seconds because you probably clicked the stopwatch as you hit the petal and clicked it again when you hit 60. Taking the 0.6 off puts you back in the ballpark.

allot of factors are involved; air temp., fuel octane, tire temp, tire pressure, engine temp, reaction time, road temp, road composition. Passenger? try it at the track.

Use your cell phone Camera and shoot a video with showing us the digital speedometor. We can give you a rough time then. You may need to do the fuse pull.

Using my iPhone, my best run has been 0-60 in 4.51 seconds. Usually run about 4.8-5.1 as my tires are starting to get pretty well seasoned now.

Road and Track/ Car and Driver and other import biased rag sheets that review cars with no torque to carry them to the 1/4 mile in a decent time. Thus they have to gear the piss out of those 4 bangers to get a decent 0-60 time and thats all they got for performance, thus thats all they care about because they are all jaded and anti american cars.

Can you tell I don't like those mags?

from that video it seems to be shifting a little early ? I thought you could hit 60+ in second gear with stock shift points, can't remember.

Road and Track had the best measured 0-60 on a stock LS3 of all the mags:


"With 426 bhp and a 3860-lb. curb weight, the car hits 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and the quarter-mile in 13.0 at 111.1 mph. Those numbers basically equal the Dodge Challenger SRT8 we previously tested with an automatic transmission, while they're significantly quicker than Ford's less powerful Mustang GT. Of note, the last Camaro Z28 we tested, in our November 2001 issue, hit 60 mph in 5.5 sec. and ran the quarter mile in 13.9, powered by a 310-bhp 5.7-liter V-8."

There is a whole thread on this....

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32753

Mostly it's posting of times but some insights into launch, etc. There are also some posts about how to time, stopwatch isn't a very good way. I have a K.A.T. Matrix accelerometer. It measures 0-60, 1/4 mile, etc. Check ebay for them. I paid like $25 plus shipping, maybe $40 total.

I'm consistently around 4.5 seconds with a completely stock car. It takes some practice and a little mishap and you're easily into the 5 second range....

I saw a little piece the other day about how motorweek tests cars and they do a bunch of runs for 0-60, slalom, 60-0, etc. I don't recall but I think they take the best of the runs...mags likely do something similar.

"consistently around 4.5 seconds"

Does that mean you got better than 4.5 seconds? Auto or stick?

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't they all base it off of a rolling start? In which case it makes a big difference for the track.

If anybody cares, I've managed 0-60 in 4.7 secs several times in a 2009 Challenger RT with a Diablo tune, CAI and Corsa catbacks, during various times of the day, temps, etc.. I definitely need to work on my launches, too much wheel spin. This is also with the traction control on as the wheels spin way too much without it. Like I said, I need to practice. I also noticed a huge improvement after I got 1500 or so miles on my car. Gotta break'em in. I've got 18,000 on it now. Anyway, I would think a Camaro SS should be able to achieve this once it's broken in.

I will argue that who cares about the 1/4 mile? A road course is where it's at!
