Probably not. But you never know, if someone pulls up in a Mustang next to me and no cops are around, maybe I will lol. But I don't think I will go out looking to race people.

I think you have to take it to a Drag strip at least once. It would be like a rite of ownership. You and the Camaro would then become one. Some autocross racing would be fun too. This is not the 60's. They made this Camaro to go around corners too.

I think 1982Camaro is right. These are not racing brakes in these cars.

14" & 14.4" rotors with 4-piston fixed calipers are not designed for that?

On the street every day!!!!!!!!J/K.

But really though, this won't be a daily driver for me but I'm sure there will be more than a little temptation to blast that damn stang's doors off on the interestate.

I've never done this sort of thing before, BUT I am really thinking of taking my new ride down the strip at least once. I know they will let me, and I would like to run an official 1/4 mile. That of course may lead to another....and another....and another!
