Actually the 13.36 is due to high ambient temps and high humidity. I drag race quite often and know what i'm doing. my buddy was racing same day with his SS camaro with L99 and was several tenths slower. you tell me what you think a stock LS3 should be capable of at 97 degrees and 80% humidity.

Really, so with all the drag racing you claim to do...the only time you ran your camaro was in terrible racing conditions? What did you have it for a month? What do you think a 5.0 does in the same bad conditions, high 12s Low 13s to high 12s is pretty normal for both cars, my car ran 12.60s @112 at 2500ft with just a set of headers on it, not even tuned for the headers or a intake. No way your stock 5.0 is pulling 12.7s at 97 degrees, so you have no comparision.

funny thing, mid 90's temps with dealer plates still on the car i ran 13.0 in my mustang.. dollar for dollar the mustang 5.0 will beat the camaro everytime provided the driver is on his game. I only took the camaro to the track the one time because the one time i tried the launch assist it broke 2 of the springs that surround the input shaft spline on the cluitch disc. The camaro may be a nice car but it doesnt impress me in performance or build quality. last 5 years i have bought a new car every year and I only bought one camaro and i am on my THIRD mustang 5.0. I've always been a diehard GM guy but until they build a better product they wont get my money.

You beat the drivers not the car.

a 5.0 mustang with just a tune will run low low twelves. I'm not a Camaro hater but the truth is dollar for dollar Mod for Mod the mustang is a faster car at the dragstrip. I think GM will fix that with the next generation camaro and if so i will probably buy one.

Well in my 13 M6 on a 98 degree day I was pulling 8.20'2-8.21's BONE STOCK down to the tire. So to say that a 5.0 wont pull those times on a hot day is not true!

I think if a guy cant learn to launch an M6 with just the right amount of tire spin and no wheel hop then they are faster than an A6. with your times i would guess humidity was pretty low that day. my biggest complaint with the stock track pack car was in first and second at about 4000 rpm the back tires would break lose and the car would wheel hop. if the 1LE camaro can keep from spinning bad or having wheelhop he would probably beat it

Low 12 with a tune, ya were at? Cuz I have seen more then my fair share of 5.0s not one of them will run low 12s with just a tune. I seen plenty of them run low 12s and everyone of them had tires with boltons and a tune to get there! I talk with these guys at the track and I know what mods they have and the times they run. If its so easy to rub low 12s with just a tune, by all means go do it and prove me wrong. See I actually race, and see what cars run at the track and with what work done. I don't base my points on some jack a$$ you tube videos!

I ran a 12.32@115 with gt500 mufflers pypes x pipe and ford racing tune. Sean from AED ran an 11.7xx@116 with tune only on tires.

well you seem to know everything eh? here is a picture of 38 time slips from this season alone mr Smart Camaro guy. i have seen in person a stock 5.0 mustang with nothing more than a Lund tune run a 12.17 on stock P zero tires. oh and one of those youtube videos you're ragging on is of me in my 2011 running a 12.80 with a .010 reaction time

What does your 12.80 have anything to do with running low 12s with nothing but a tune? So your car will pick up .6 in the 1/4 with just a tune, please go do it. That's one hell of a tune lol

as a matter of fact with some break in miles and a tune they do pickup that much. a tune isnt just engine perameters it's also transmission shift points and pressures. Fords stock tune is very conservative in the auto equipped Mustangs. i dont expect a closed minded person like yourself to believe it and that's fine. you can get your education the hard way at the track. oh and that 12.80 was the first pass ever in that car with what i believe was less than 600 miles on the car. it went on to run 12.70's that day
