If this YouTube video is to be believed, then Chevrolet definitely did not forget to put the FAST in the COPO Camaro. Car number three and its 327-cubic-inch engine topped with the 4.0-liter blower ran what looks like an 8.88-second quarter-mile at the strip, out of the box.

That puts it at the pointy end of the three-way competition between it, the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet and the Mopar Challenger Drag Pak. Ford has said the Cobra Jet will run in under 10 seconds, while the Challenger Drag Pak did a 9.43 out of the box last year. We're sure this is just the beginning of what will be a long, and very loud, rivalry.

The owner said that he was running out of gear on the big end and that they will be regearing soon. expect mid to low 8's on stock motor.
This is from mike at New Era Performance( the car's owners) in one of the other 5posts of this video:
"This Copo is stock, we were just at the track tuning the launch a little bit, I am going to get further into tuning this car next week, this is #003, has the 5.3 engine and 4.0 Whipple. I was very happy to see 8.88 on the 3rd pass right out of the trailer with just a little launch tuning. It is running out of gear too, couldn't even make a full pass, think we are gonna have to make a gear change."

Its a GREAT time to be a gear head!!!
Jim Boburka (N/A 427 car) ran a 9.40 FLAT last night @ 141 lifting ... do the math, he just made all the Challenger guys put thier tail between thier legs

That was awesome. I can't believe that was a factory car.

There's nothing like seeing an 8 second car run live at the track though. You can feel the pressure wave hit you a bit if you are close on the fence when it launches. It's nuts.

That COPO must be very well engineered too. Most cars that are this fast lift significantly off the ground and have some body flex (at least that I've seen during my times at Byron).

Just curious what you have done. I know the car has been to the track three times now. What have you found?

They arent 60 footin yet. Wait ... we are just tickling our wheelie bar now and going 1.29 60fts. Once we get it geared properly, it will hang the hoops and you will see the ETs drop considerably and catch up to the MPH.

Definitely eager to see those runs then too!
