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

I got 4.18 just the other day in my 2SS. All I have on it right now is some Carbon fiber and full exhaust with the Diablo Sport 93 Octane tune. It was with Continental's Extreme Contact all around on stock rims around 60 Degrees. I even took a picture afterwards.

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.
Pretty good time for charger. You're gonna wish you had a hellcat though. Suppossedly able to go 0 - 60 in 2 seconds. WOW. My dream would be that Z06, amazing.

I totally agree. I have this round about by my house and when I come around it I need to get over three lanes of expressway to make a right in 2 blocks. Unfortunately for me my car is a 5.9 second 0 - 60 car but I thank God every time I make it across a little faster thanks to my car's mods. I can shave a second or two off that 5.9, which is a good thing. Especially when someone plugs up the entrance to the highway and leaves you in a dangerous position trying to get on with little room left.

The article states 2.9 seconds (which is still hard to believe), not 2 seconds.

If a car made it down the quarter mile in 7.89 seconds is it not know as a 7 second car? In my world it is, same as "less than 3 seconds" is 2 seconds.

Sure I agree anything in the 10s is a 10 second car in the 1/4, but I tend to not use the same thumbrule for 0-60 times. Most people would agree that the same rule doesn't apply for 0-60 times. 0-60 in 2 flat is just ludicrous.
