First one was serious, the chevy comment was a play on how serious some people seem to take brand loyalty.

Tell that to Ferrari, Mclaren, Porsche, Bughatti, Masserati, who pump hundreds of millions of dollars a year into racing that doesnt involve drag. THAT is where the money is.
Read carfully.....you even bolded the key point.


High dollar cars in street races........High dollar car........street races.

I never said anything about value from how it drags...LOL.

Fact is most 370zs and SS camaros wont see any track time. Most are bought for street duty and the main street race is either a no shit drag race or bullshiting from stoplight to stoplight.

Oh and by the way, comming on to a Camaro site and talking up the 370z all the time (trashing the camaro or not) is trolling.

I saw your comment. Lights racing, the most common. It will favor the Z everytime. Just as fast and less wheel spin.

"Oh and by the way, IMO comming on to a Camaro site and talking up the 370z all the time (trashing the camaro or not) is trolling"

Fixed it for you.

That says alot about the Z's track ability. 3 seconds behind the GTR.

Somebody ban this idiot troll.

Anybody who prefers a VQ over an LSX is just plain retarded.

I'll rip you a new asshole tomorrow when I have time. Until then, STFU ricer.

How about...nobody cares what you have to say?? Ever think of that?? You're a 370Z owner trolling a Camaro forum...get a life.

Camaro has pulled 13.0 @ 111MPH. Keep talking shit, we'll keep whooping your ricer ass.

4. Yeah

5. yeah

5 1/2. dont give a shi

ha ha this made me laugh. So a company went out of buisness because is products sucked. I'm not saying that isn't the problem, but i'm not saying it it. I thought it had something to do with this economic time. I don't know maybe thats just me. Cause i thought thats why most of the world is struggling.

How can you say that the LS3 doesn't respond well to mods, just cause its in the camaro? The "Camaro" Is just a skin for that LS3 motor, or the LS3 is the heart for the Camaro. Whichever you like. The LS3 already has been modded and tested in more ways then you can count. Oh and i knew lingenfelter, and hennesy were just sitting on there butts just looking at the cars.
