She impressed me.

Well my parents came into town for 4 days and I took them each out for a ride in my Camaro. I have to say my car impressed me, I was on a empty country road and turned off traction control. 2K launch and left 25' of rubber in 1st and then another 25' in second. My mom was like wow and then my dad and I came around to that spot and he said wow. He also drove my car and said she has allot of power.

I do not turn the nannies off so this one of the very few times I have and I never launched as high as 2K before. I know my 1K launches have the HUD display traction control. So it was very impressive but eats up to much tire. Have rubber all over my wheel wells now.

Hit button in front of shifter for traction control Rev to 2500 RPM drop clutch,should smoke them for as long as you want. Ive easily done 25 to 30 feet and shifted into 2nd and kept on burning them.

Just got down on mine recently, and like you Scott, I was impressed! Didn't know how good it would spin! I let off the brake and hit the gas(no power braking) and it spun about 35'! I let off before it hit second and it spun pretty easy,not even putting it to the floor!

Here is a pic! You can't see it real good do to the road condition(not very smooth) but you can hopefully see the rubber ahead of the two black marks! Had to let off cause that stop sign is not very far away! You could see it a lot better in person!

Yeah, I'm familiar with the launch control and I can burn first no problem but I can't even bark second side stepping the clutch. I've done a fuse pull and such, I'm afraid my car might be a turd. Haha

Oh yeah!! I know if I am banging thru them I see traction control come up on the HUD 1-3 gear. It is hot down here and the tires are really sticky but the gears are helping me break them loose easy.

Will probably getting some Verds or BFG's for the rear tires by summers end. Have 10,500 miles on her now.
