ANY 2013 SS trapping 113 mph

I saw a member post that his 2013 SS trapped 113 at like 12.6 or so stock, is this possible.

That would give it the highest trap speed and 2nd-5th highest ET on the fast list. So it might be possible, but not likely (especially since no one has good air right now).

The 13s are faster then the 10-12s. EPS frees up a good 10 horsepower.

not trapping at 113 in these temps im at sea level and 110mph trap speeds by stock cars at sgmp are rare.

SGMP is one of the fastest tracks in the country. It's been dipping into the low 70s/high 60s on several track nights there as well.

Best I've done is mid/low 13's in the fall (104 trap). I have Airaid CAI and GMPP exhaust otherwise stock. I'm not an experienced track driver though. 12.6 is awesome numbers but doubtful if truly stock.

yeh i love sgmp made the mistake of going out to gianesville and basically doing a first and second gear burnout down the track the 4 times i ran there with my 5th gen so they really dont take care of their track on test and tune nights. SGMP takes care of their track all the time

Epping NH is worst, you have to drive through a dirt and gravel stretch up to the strip and enjoy 1st, 2nd, and even 3rd gear spins. The last time there I almost went into the wall at 90mph. I am done with Epping NH.

Even with the additional 10 hp, that still probably wouldn't be enough to make up the 2+ mph need to trap 113. Truly stock? Doubtful.

Honestly 113mph with a stock SS is not happening at this time of the year. I went to the track two weeks ago and I trapped 110mph on all of my runs. And the track that I run at is 341 ft above sea level and the temps were in the mid 70's.

Not happening stock. 10hp is not going to make that big a difference.

I was 600DA I think when my '12 A6 SS went 13.1s. Lets see videos and time slips than I will change my mind.

10hp equates to about .1 (one tenth of a second). Should also add maybe 1 mph in trap speed.

So a car running 12.84 @ 110 mph, could possibly run 12.74 @ 111 mph with an additional 10hp.

As mentioned, for a stock Camaro SS to trap 113 mph the conditions would need to be excellent (negative DA conditions - cold air most likely with a favorable tail wind).
Anything else is monkey business (car has mods or track equipment isn't accurrate (which happens).

A while back we had a stock L99 that ran something like 12.5 @ 110+ mph on a warm day (+2000 ft DA). That's completely impossible. Track equipment messed up the time.

That wasn't a mistake Camaro SS actually have warp speed capability, maybe you found the hidden button. The 13.1 now that was a mistake.
