yea last time I went I showed up around 6 and it started to get crowded real quick. My best run that night was 8.7 but it was really hot and for some reason I had trouble getting traction. What mods do you have on your Camaro?

6's in the 1/8 mi are out of the question, 7's I don't believe is capable with a 426 hp LS3 with a tune and street tires also don't believe a ZL1 with street tires can go down into 7's, my best 1/4 et was 11.92 with an 1/8 at 7.98. You need slicks to get good 60 ft times with at least 500 hp at the flywheel to get in the 1/8 mi 7's.

The conversion factor 1/8 mi to 1/4 is 1.56 or 1.6 used by NHRA, any 1/8 mi et quicker than 8.59 sec will require additional safety pieces on your Camaro.
