There are plenty of threads about 1/4 mile track times, but this thread is specific to 1/8 mile track times. The Official 1/8 Mile 2010-11 Camaro Fast List list is divided into three classes:
  1. Bone-Stock Includes completely stock car with zero performance changes. Cars must have stock exhaust, stock air intake, stock “untuned” computer (ECU/PCM), etc.
  2. Bolt-Ons *without* Internal Engine Modifications or Power Adders. Includes cars with a modified air intakes, headers, ECU/PCM-tune, aftermarket clutch, non-stock rear gears, skinny front tires, etc.
  3. Internal Engine Modifications and/or Power Adders Same requirements as above but for cars with Heads, Cam shaft, Nitrous, Turbo, Supercharger, etc.

The Rules:
  • Along with your time slip, you must post the details of your 1/8 mile pass... see the example below. (NOTE: early entries may not have this information, as it was not required until recently. If you're an early entry, please edit/update your post to include the detailed information.)

    All time slips to be directly uploaded to Camaro 5 web site and not a third party photo storage service.

    Example:
    Car/Engine: 2SS/RS w/L99
    Top Twenty Class: Bolt-Ons *without* Internal Engine Modifications
    Tires used on the pass: Stock Pirelli ZR20 Summer Tires
    Performance Mods (if any): ADM Performance CAI, ADM Performance 160 Thermostat
    R/T: .8147
    60': .20145
    330': 5.4490
    660': 8.2898
    660’ mph: 87.23mph
    Name/Location of the track: Northstar Dragway Sanger, Texas
    Date of pass: 9/25/2009
    Weather conditions: (include Density Altitude, if known): 59 Degrees, 72% Humidity, Density Altitude: 424 feet, Relative Density: 98.77 %
    Brief Comments: What a night! Blew away the Challenger in the lane next to me and ran my best time ever.

    [insert the image of your time slip here]

  • Be sure to post your time slips. No slip = No update to the Top Twenty list!
  • Slips must be posted in this forum. Referring to slips in other forums doesn't count.
  • Potential qualifying times require posting of an image of the time slip (if you need help, PM me.)
  • Track times will not be corrected for weather or track altitude.
  • Any one can submit his/her times to this thread.
  • Only one time per member will be included in a given class.
  • If two people submit times identical to the thousands of a second, the tie-breaker goes the higher mph.
  • It's a top twenty list, but the entire list can be viewed by opening the link.

How strong does your car feel from a dead stop at Full Throttle? Does it bog down until higher in the RPM range. How are you launching it. Maybe I am expecting too much just putting my foot to the floor.

Your 60' foot times look pretty good for a few minor mods.

EXTREMELY strong since the Dyno tune. No bog down at all, running with TC on. Launching is more timing, since it's the L99 and I refuse to brake stand. It's a left foot on the brake/right foot on the gas, release one and jam on the other... smoothly but quickly pressing the pedal to the floor.

Glad you started the thread. I would recomend running in competitive mode though. I have had 2 Vette`s w/ TC and they both ran quicker w/ the TC off and in comp mode.

Right! I ran a few different configurations but find going with TC on and StabiliTrack on (Competitive Mode displays on the dash) are giving me better times than holding down the TC button for 7 seconds to turn it all off. Above, I was commenting on not being bogged down with the TC on.

Your running with the TC on?
That should be costing you a tenth or two. Unless you were having launching issues (wheel hop, excessive wheel spin, etc).

Did you try regular sport mode with TC off? That seems to be the fastest mode for most the L99s.

Also, how was the car tuned. Did they put in a more aggressive tranny tune for Sport Mode vs D?

And
Nice 1/8 mile times. And I like the idea of the thread. I have an 1/8 mile track not too far from my house.

At TMS, I run in pure competitive mode... meaning holding the TC button for 7 seconds and turning it all off. But at Kennedale last night, the humidity and all the rubber on the track had me screeching too much at the line, so I found the best combo to be keeping the TC on and the Stabilitrack off. Friday night at TMS, I'll be back to turning it all off. It's been tuned to have an aggressive tranny in 'D' and 'M'... my guy (ADM) suggested 'D' would suffice.. and trying one vs. the other last night, I'd say he was right.

Need more 1/8 mile times/ET slips posted!

Oh I see.

Yeah, if there are launching issues (traction, wheel hop, etc), the TC can be helpful to get off the line clean.

Me too.. although, after talking to ADM today, the thought is that downpipes will provide more bang for the buck, so I probably go that way first.

Must be nice, being so close to the drag strip! That said, they need a way to get on the track without going through the water... let them know for me, okay?

Be sure to scan and post your slips with your times!

What's a "flashed stall" launch?

Here are my times for a TRULY stock L99.

9.618 @ 75.18 Mph in the 1/8
14.77 @ 96.23 Mph in the 1/4

Temp was 90 deg
Barometer - 29.91
Humidity - 10%
Density altitude - 8342 ft
Relative density - 77.78%

Converts to 13.22 @ 107.09 Mph for the 1/4

We'll see how it does after I add the Vararam CAI and get a tune, but for now it's as stock as it left the factory.

BTW..new exhaust, K&N filter and dyno tune make yours no longer stock , but still great times!!

Nice times! I have no internal engine mod's, so she's allowed to run in stock class, as would you with a CAI. That said, I won't argue the point that she's not "bone stock" anymore... and thank goodness, cause now she runs like the beast I expected to receive.

More time slips people!!

Best of four runs, sport mode, no tap shift, TC and ST on.

Did not power brake just had on foot resting on the gas and the other on the edge on the brake. Let my foot slip off the break and mash the gas at the same time. Tried power braking on the first few runs but had slower times, but the last run was later in the night.

Toyota Dragstrip at Irwindale

R/T - 1.015
60' - 2.045
330' - 5.811
1/8 - 8.849
MPH - 81.55

Be sure to post your times *and* your slips! With all the Camaro's on the road, and all the 1/8 mile tracks around, this should become a highly competitive list to be on!

Moroso Run on the 23rd.

R/T - 0.330
60' - 1.974
330' - 5.332
1/8 - 8.083
MPH - 89.42

DA was 1886

Supercharged L99

I couldn't seem to get the timing right last night, but hopefully I will get use to it. I am not used to an auto and loading the brake is VERY different than dropping the clutch. I will get it into the 11's next time, oops wrong post, I mean 7's in the 1/8th.

Dragtimes covertion for DA:
Extensively Modified Supercharged and Turbocharged Engines
12.325 @ 114.393 MPH

Here is the video from inside the car and the timeslip.

Freaking awesome!! Move to the top of the list, sir, do not pass go. I don't think I'll go so far as adding a SC to my L99. Getting headers (hopefully!) tomorrow, along with the race intake for my ADM CAI, but that's only going to take me a little lower in the 8.4's... maybe a high 8.3 if I am lucky.

Brief Comments: Ran my best times ever tonight... best one posted below, which was my second run... the first was an 8.3 and change. My best time was 8.2898 seconds @87.23mph. Thanks entirely to ADM Performance. No one else will ever work on my car, and if they don't make the mod then my car doesn't need it. Andy has my L99 running some incredible times.

Member pharmd PM'd me the following information... way to go pharmd on posting some great times on your L99!

The 1/8' mile will give you some indication of the potential...look at the mustang I was racing...I was ahead of him at the 1/8 and check out his pass.

I'll add the other slip below this one also.



This one was the street tire pass early in the night (DA 2000)...
