Wow!

Great cars! That GT 500 is nasty. The SS didn't do bad in all those races.

SWEET! Drop a supercharger on that LS3 and then have a re-match and see who the victor is. Compare apples to apples. That stock, not broken in Camaro did a damn fine job, especially on the first half of the track. Nicely done!

I think it would still loose. If you look at the video comments, the GT500 is on street tires. It also seems to have a KB. Which means it is easily putting down 600+ or more @ the wheels.

DR's and a track, and the the GT500 destroys even a S/C camaro. But that is how it should be considering the gap in the cars.

Edit: Hmm reading it now, that GT500 has 700+ @ the Wheels.

That beings said, the 2010 camaro is the CAR of the year for sure!!! Cant wait to get mine



Lol, i only said that because that's how it looked in the video (i mean it wasn't a finish line angle so i just gave it my best guess) And stock for stock i bet it would only be a few cars behind for sure.
I would be careful to judge. Remember that the Cobalt SS doesn't quite have that grunt, but some of the modified Cobalts will run with new Camaros. Anyone who wants to race you might just have what it takes to make a fool of you. Be careful who you race, and always finish with class. The only excuses for losing are that your car just isn't the better car or that you are a worse driver.

This idea that more and more horsepower is going to make you faster in a drag race has a slight issue. It can make you faster IF you have everything else that can handle the power PLUS a driver who knows how to use it. But that last part becomes more and more critical the more power you add. It starts to get harder and harder to control the traction once you cross a certain threshold of power so the notion that the average street driver is going to just rock the house with 700 hp? Ain't gonna happen unless they get some serious training and/or track experience at controlling that kind of power.

I can't tell you how many times I've seen rich guys buy Ferrari or Porsches with all kinds of power and go out and make fools of themselves on the track thinking they're going to be fast just because their car has a lot of power and performance. Too many guys with more money and ego than skill.

Having said all that, I think this new Camaro may just turn out to be the best muscle car ever designed and built by anybody...ever. It's got that "feel" to it that I haven't seen in an American car in a long long time. In fact this will be the first American car I've bought in 20 years.

The Camaro owned 2 out of the 3. I'd say that's victory!

I say take your own car to your local track and start racing yourself.

Start posting your own results, and your own analysis of why your race went well or bad, and then we can start commenting on something that resembles verifiable truths.

All of this sideline speculating on what happened during this race or that is a waste of time when we are dealing with basically anonymous runs. Nineball did an excellent job with his run down and analysis in his thread.

Whatever the hell you drive, drive it like it was meant to be driven. Line up at the tree, or go autocross. Pick your poison, just actually do it, and comeback and tell us.

I'm tired of excuses by everyone on all sides when the results don't come out how they want them to.

Those are some good match up's! Where the hell are these people at where you can have that many races on a bridge and not get called on you. That must be the mayor, sherriff, and judge of the town all out on a Sunday drive

Cool races, but the starts seemed to favor the new SS. That GT 500 did not sound like it came from ford that way. And yes, it was pulling away from the Camaro. I thought the SS did a great job holding its own though.

I wouldnt own a camaro if i didnt have family that knew how to enjoy their cars, and likewise I wouldnt own a camaro if i had the mentality that I must take it to the track to have fun with it. Thats not to say i condone street racing but live a little.

Cool videos, i thought the 68 had the 5th gen. Im surprised how well the lighter solid axle cars are launching against the 5th gen. IRS is usually a trump card in a street tire vs street tire race. Its nice to see all those cars being used for how they were intended!

We can't compare the Gt500 with the New Camaro ... even if you drop a supercharger in the Camaro it isn't apples to apples ... Stock warrenty is not covered any more .. plus if you want to go that route, the GT500 is ready for more boost .. the Camaro isn't .


There is no doubt that right now, the GT500 is king of the hill. Why can't people just accept that .. LOL

No..No its not. It has a KB in it, and probably the extra mods that go with it. Thus the reason it could not put power to pavement on the launch.

I will say the Camaro did well, but I cannot understand why people think the Camaro should have won every race...Its fast, but there is always someone faster..Plus that could not be nowhere near a 1/4...

And over a bridge at that..wow...

Ummm , i believe the the C6 Z06 is king of the hill over the GT500! And if you really want to compare apples to apples it would be the (ZR1 vs Ford GT) (Camaro SS vs Mustang GT) (C6 Z06 vs GT500) all are stock and covered with warranty to... and your not even going to try and tell me im wrong because im 100% correct (your not comparing price to price so dont even try)

LOL, the super snake was a terribly overpriced piece of junk. But i guess if you had to put it against something then the ZR1 would do just fine
