I certainly hope the hennessy team isn't purposely dogging it for its baseline test so they can inflate their "improved" track numbers. They've disabled the comments on the video so I can't ask them any questions...

If they are, it's just barely. That's pretty darn close to all the other videos on youtube that show the quarter mile. I'm sure their gains will be impressive regardless.

Not if he was running 13.9 (unless he was a horrible driver).... a stock challenger SRT-8 will do 13.2 in the 1/4 no problem at around 109mph....I think this was versus an R/T (5.7 HEMI, not the 6.1 HEMI)

Yes, it's an SRT8. The rims and black spoiler are the give aways.

Well a camaro SS is supposed to run 13 flat but it wasn't even close. I think it was an SRT8.

You also gotta figure too that these cars are not even broken in yet. The longer these cars are out the faster times we are gonna see! Its hard to be excellent drivers when you arent used to a car. i think we will be seeing low 13s to high 12s here in a couple months...and one will be mine!

Anybody notice the Hennessey guy was shifting at 6000? I wonder if shifting at higher RPM would get a better time? Plus he shifted into 4th at 102mph. There was a thread on here that showed 3rd gear should be good to 111-112 mph. I bet revving it out would have shaved a couple tenths off and given a higher mph. Found another:



Doesn't show the time, but gives all you people wanting bigger wheels how it will look with the GM 21" wheels on it.

Notice the reaction time, the 60ft and as already stated the 4th gear shift at 102mph. Hennessey is definately not pushing the car. The other video, well it is the first drag video we have. I wouldn't put too much into it, the car is definately faster than these times!

I noticed also that he didn't use launch control. Hold your foot to the floor, wait for 4000 rpm, side step. A 2.3 60 foot? That's atrocious. You do what you gotta do to sell your aftermarket stuff. Even new, the Camaro's gotta be capable of 13.2-13.4 @ at least 112-114.

In the video he said he didn't want to push it too hard because it was new, and that there will be more videos coming with faster times.

No way on the "atleast" 112-114. 03 Cobra's basically put out the same power and weighed in at about 200 lbs less and trapped 111-113 with the very absolute highest coming in at 114. The slower one's trapped "atleast" 109-111. It's safe to say the '10 SS (6spd) will trap 109-111 with the absolute highest at around 112, but they will be trapping "atleast" 107-109 (which is what we've seen). A 114 mph trap would be a stretch, the planets would have to align just right. That, and hurricane winds.

If you're saying "atleast" 112-114, then that's implying the norm will be 114-116 and the highend will be above that.

It appeared the Camaro was trailing but just made up enough ground, after a bad jump, to eek out the win. I like.

Listening to the announcer in that video, it sounds like he said the Challenger "got there first" unfortunately. From what I could see, neither one got a good launch and the Camaro launch was the worst of the two. When the cars are closely matched, more often than not it is all about launch IMHO.

I'm not sure if you know how racing at the track works. But reaction time leaving the line matters. The Camaro ran a faster time but actually crossed the finish line behind the Chally. Which if you look at the timing lights you'll see the bulbs on the sides lit up in the Challys lane, that means the Challenger won. So due the better reaction time off the line the Challenger wins the race with a slower 1/4 mile time.
