Ugh Dad is trying to one up me....

So It all started when my father got a 2005 g35 a few years back. Bragging to me about how fast and nice it was. Fast forward a bit and I get to have the upper hand with 2010 LS3 Camaro. I knew seeing it would fill his mind with a bit of envy but apparently he will not let his son outdo him.

Shows to me today that he is in the process of getting a 2007 M6 SMG. Damn him...I may get him to track it once up against my camaro. Question is how close of a race will it be? I was amazed to find out it had a little north of 500hp but only 380+ torque. Would it be a close race? If not what kind of horsepower am i gonna need to be back on top?

Are you sure about that ?

http://media.caranddriver.com/files/...w-m6-specs.pdf


0-60 in 4.1, 1/4 mile in 12.4 @ 121 mph!

Had no idea they were that quick! My friend's i/e tuned SRT8 Challenger 2009 with 100 shot of nitrous traps only 118!

The 7-speed SMG has exceptionally short gears and extremely quick shifts.... It's 6th gear is 1:1 ratio.

You would definitely need at least 100 shot to keep up, 150 shot may give you the win.

What year M6 is that link about?

here is some online info on the 2007 model:
http://www.dragtimes.com/BMW-M6-Timeslip-20107.html

http://www.edmunds.com/bmw/m6/2007/ The 1/4 mile info is about 2/3 down page.

In any case the M6's are faster than a lot of people know but with a the right mods/tires a Camaro SS should be able to run with it.

That's only a 2006, I see you posted some slower times... There is a published 13.5 figure out for Camaro SS. Shall we use that too then ?

you will need full boltons + tune, otherwise get a blower/turbo if you want to be extra sure.

You guys think your cars will trap 120+ with full bolt ons and tune ? M6 traps more then that, even if you did trap that you would be right with M6.

With bolt ons and a tune I may or may not have been slightly ahead of a 2012 m6 from a roll after I stopped accelerating in 3rd gear.
