Thumbs up PlanetLSX.com 2010 Camaro SS Baseline Track Results

Details:

2010 Camaro SS/RS (2SS) Link to pics
6-speed manual
100% showroom stock down to the 37 psi air in the rear tires.
I mean 100% stock. No weight removed, as-purchased.
1,200 miles on the car (2 weeks old)
4,045 lbs raceweight (half tank, and I'm 190 lbs)
Holding RPM between 3500-4000 and slipping clutch out on launch.
Powershifting (no lifting throttle between shifts) at red line (6K-6.2K)
Coolant temps 212-218F
Density Altitude was +2,301 ft (it was 96F earlier today, 88 for these passes)

Three consecutive passes (hot lapped):

13.256 @ 108.43 (2.098 60')
13.194 @ 109.62 (2.128 60')
13.070 @ 109.07 (2.057 60')

Videos will be posted later this weekend.

If I can just get a 1.9X 60' time, it will go 12s in the heat. Imagine what it would run in negative density altitude! Probably 12.70s...

I may try to go back to the track on Sunday to get a 12!

Redline is 6600 rpm. I am assuming that is a misprint or you would have been shifting into 4th before the end of the track. Nice runs!

Yeah, using the DA calculator it says you'd be running 12.7. Very impressive.

Stock rev limiter is 6600? My tach show redline at 6200 or so. I don't run it up to the limiter, it stops pulling after 6200 anyways. Just 3 gears used.

I don't know what the tach looks like, but the rev limiter for the LS3 is definitely 6600 rpm. Take a look at this dyno chart from another thread, they ran it right up to 6600, still making plenty of power too. You might want to try holding the gear a bit longer next time.

The stock fuel cutoff is 6600. Redline is a little lower.

sure its making power but it already starts to decrease at 6000rpm. wouldnt the rate of acceleration decrease? it would feel like the car slows down if held too long, almost like hitting the rev limiter but not as bad

Joelster, on my 13.07 pass, the 1/8 mile was 8.512 @ 85.13 mph.

Scooter, yes on the 93 octane pump gas.

I'm going to have to play with the shift points a little, I figured they were about 200 rpm past redline, like most GM cars. That was where I shifted, at redline.

What you have to do is compare the HP you are making in the current gear to the HP you would be making in the lower gear. It depends on the car, but the ideal shiftpoint is usually 500-1000 rpm past peak power. Even though the horsepower is down a bit after the 5900 peak, it will be much lower in the next gear as the engine will be down around 4000 rpm. You are right that you can feel this decrease in acceleration once you pass peak power, but you will still be better off staying in that gear (to a point). The longer you hold the gear, the higher rpm you start off at in the next gear as well, so it can make a big difference, depending on the car.
