Bone Stock G35 auto vs Camaro SS









We both had 2.1 60 foots on all 3 runs. His best run of the night was 13.5 @ 104, my best run was 13.6 @ 102(best trap 103).

Bone stock 2008 G35 Sport, but 5-speed automatic. It has 122k miles on the odo and bunch of random crap in the car, weighed 3610 lbs.

Don't underestimate the VQ35HR. All 3 of those runs with the Camaro SS were clean, we were within .2 tenths of each other and 2 mph every run. He is a stock L99.

Thanks. There was a film crew for a new show on the Speed channel that recorded the runs. You could see these runs on national TV.

These runs were on 245/40R18 Chinese Primewell tires btw guys.

To be honest, 13.5 is pretty bad for an SS. Where did you go and on what date? I want to see the real times.

The g35's are pretty quick, but nowhere near SS territory. Practically it is V6 territory.

Lucky you got to run last night, 500 ft DA. We always seem to miss the good weather there. Good job with the times though.

500ft DA and that SS was running mid 13s at 104 Those are 2000+ft DA times at my tracks, 2.1 60s with an auto is terrible! Now I know why some people think 5th gens are slow. I would kill for 500ft DA!!! Guys dont underestimate a g35 now All joking aside, not a bad run for that car! That SS is a turd you were racing though, either on low octane or driver has NO idea what hes doing!

Not exactly, SS L99s usually run that time.

In 500ft Da thats terrible! Should be 13.0-.2s at 106ish fairly easy for an auto. 2.1 60fts in a auto is terrible too, 2.0 1.9 is a walk in the park for an auto! Plain and simple those are bad passes in that car!

My biggest issue is the 2.1x sec 60' times for the L99 Camaro SS.
The L99 A6 has a very aggressive 1st gear and 2.1x sec 60' time is really bad.

With decent skills behind the wheel, a stock L99 A6 will 1.9x sec 60' all day long.
That would have brought the 1/4 mile times down in the low 13s @ 105-107 range (which would be more typical for the conditions).

Mid 13s with a 500 ft DA is pretty slow for a stock L99 A6.
I've personally watched a bone stock L99 A6 run 13.3s @ 105 mph in 2500 ft DA (88 degrees with high humidity - summer in Florida).

But it is well known that many stock L99s desperately need a tune. We've seen some pretty slow stock L99s that badly needed tunes.

My L99 A6 (tune only) ran 12.90 @ 108/109 mph on a sunny mid 70s temp day.
Here's my tune only time slip (and take note of the 60' time). That's the 60' time L99s can pull stock with the right driver.

I know where you run 08-G35, that typically the DA is pretty bad and the times a slower than normal, but you say it was just 500DA this time.

How was the track prep?

That's a quick G35 to keep up with the L99. Thanks for the vids.

On a crappy 1/8 track (County Line) in my near stock L99 (just a C.A.I.), the best I could do was an 8.626 @ 83.6mph w/ 60' of 2.118 and the next best was a 8.635 @ 82.5mph w/ 60' of 2.073... I'ved only been to the track 2x so far so still a ways for me to get sub 2sec 60' consistently.

That track sux and I can't believe it was only 500DA. His 2.1 60ft was probably due more to the track and not the driver. There is also no way to avoid the water box so your pretty much forced to put water on the starting line which hurts you even more. Even with a hefty burnout on my DR's I cant load my converter on that track and because I have never been able to load my converter the best 60ft with DR's I have seen at that track is a low 1.8 60ft. Best DA I have ever seen there when I went in Fall weather was 2500. I can also agree that the L99 is kinda slow without a tune plus it gets knocked into low octane mode fairly easily with our crap 91 octane.

My friend ran consistent 12.9's on your same tires in his 2010 3V Mustang GT auto(stock with tune and Nitto 555R's plus LCA's).

His is the blue one.


The grey car is the 5.0.

4:20 is bolt on 5.0 on Drag radials versus 392 Charger(he was doing 12.6 stock!)

7:15 is that 4.6 3v on Drag radials vs 5.0 on drag radials.

Best run of the night was this C5 Corvette! He was running .1-.2 tenths faster but trapping the same ! It was hilarious and sad at the same time!

He did 13.6 @ 102.2 this run, I did 13.8 @ 102.4 mph. He had faster reaction time though. He sounds like he has a baby cam! He was the same speed as a Ford Lightning at the track that was doing 13.5-13.6.



Here's the same corvette at thunder valley few weeks back

Here's my friends full bolt on L99, his best time was 13.4 @ 105 at the TV, but he was doing 13.5-13.7.... He has CAI/Tune/Headers and full exhaust. Obviously on 22's though.

Here's the run with the stage 2. G35 is car 254, short shifted into 4th gear.... hence 100 trap instead of 102-103.

I don't think you understand... This is a VQ35HR 2nd gen G sedan. It's a good full second faster out of the box then previous VQ35DE iterations of the G sedan. The record for stock auto G sedan is 13.09 @ 106.2; that's much closer to the SS record stock then it is the V6 Camaro record for stock.

This has VQ37, puts down about 40 more whp(hence 4 mph higher trap) then the VQ35HR in this G35(260 vs 300). This also has 7-speed auto to make better use of those extra ponies. Last night this G37 would've been a 13.0-13.4(13.4 at the minimum) car. Guys I only say this because I was .1 tenth of a second away from breaking the all time stock g35 auto 1/4 mile record!
