5.0 vs Camaro SS 1/4 mile race

FF to :34 seconds. Stock L99 with handheld tuner vs 5.0 on NT05R drag radials, muffler delete, cai, 3.73's manual.



Closer then you would think. Enjoy.

He ran 12.7 @ 111 mph in Mississippi bone stock on the tires it came with.

He still has timeslip with him.

You need to look around before you go saying 12.7 in stock 6-speed manual 5.0 is lousy driver.

The trap speed is lower because of his 3.73's, he has to shift into 5th before end of 1/4 mile at around 105. My friend's 3.31 auto 5.0 stock trapped 109 mph.

4th gear redlines at 105

I'm not sure about the first run in that video, but in the second one, he most certainly hit 5th at the end of the run. It's a loud car and I know what a 5.0 sounds like, count the shifts, he hits 5th right before he goes through the traps(a couple seconds or so after the kid says "he chirped 4th"). You can't really tell with the first run because someone starts doing a burnout close to the camera right as the cars were going through the traps.

Watch that video again, that's an auto, listen to how smooth and early the shifts are. Not only do autos have completely different gear ratios in the box, they also have the crap ass 3.15s out back, not 3.73s. I have an auto 5.0 and I've been doing data logs lately locked in 3rd gear, it's absurdly tall. Red line is well over 110 mph in 3rd.

Are you that dense? How many times do we have to explain to you he has 3.73's and it's a manual?

with a clean launch you will be right at the end of 4th gear with the 3.73's and right around 109-110. Shifting to 5th will lose a little time but gain some mph. They do not top out at 105 in 4th try again.

110 is right on the soft limiter in 4th with the 3.73's with the stock tune
im right on the limiter at 115 with the 3.31's in my car on the stock tune and stock tires. With the 18" Dr's and stock tune im shifting into 5th around 109-110

False.
He did that and it redlined and he trapped 104-105 mph. He is on these 05ish S197 GT wheels and Nitto NT05R, they are a little tall. That may be too blame.

I have ridden and driven his car, it goes to 105. Period.

Taller tires would give him more more MPH in 4th not lower it

You wouldn't think so but it's that way, when I took my 5.0 to the track the only semi clean pass I got I was at the 7000 rpms in 4th maybe 50-100' before the traps, I decided to ride out 4th instead of 5th. The 5.0's rev very quickly. My trap on that pass was 109.2

Says the guy who doesn't know the difference between 3.31 and 3.73 gears, another member and I tried to explain but he blew it off. Instead posting videos and links to a base auto geared 5.0 and how it gets through 1/4 mile in 3rd.

Have you driven a wrx Sti? You are in 5th gear by the end of the 1/4 mile in that too.
