As per the article above.... That's not exactly leaving the camaro for dead.

I believe strongly these two cars are very closely matched. .2 seconds and 1.5 mph in the quarter stock for stock is pretty much a drivers race with a slight advantage going to the Genesis.
Actually I have seen a time slip of a genesis coupe in the 13's. Will try and find it.

That's completely possible. It's hard to know however how it relates since I could go hunting for the fastest V6 Camaro time too and that would not be at least in my opinion a true comparison of acceleration. You need to have the same driver, same conditions for both cars.

The suck part is, I'd like to know the 60" time as well to see if there is some difference in the reaction but magazines sometimes don't show us that

... However... If you find it post it so we can see a nice time, I am all about that hehe..

The Genesis is totally capable of handing the v6 camaro its ass, they have about the same hp (The gen has something insignificant like...2 more), but the genesis is a few hundred pounds less.

I'm perfectly aware the 2010 Camaro isn't gonna be a new ZR1. You're really close to a 1SS in pricing when you get the brembo package, about 1.5k more i think. 25000 starting to get the base V6 Genesis coupe.

To the milk mod dude... I am not out to bash camaro owners. I am stating facts from what I see. I am standing up for a car I like, and then you get people that go off the wall talking shit about the car just because it is an import. It's a totally different story if they were bashing me, but thats because its a import. Don't get me wrong, I love the camaro, and I have respect for some of the people here. IRPQ is a example, cool guy, Indpwr is another example, 1320 junkie is another, and there are quite a few others that I respect here. They seem to have a open mind when it comes to cars. I have noticed however that about 98-99% of the others that I have talked to, don't. I am aware this is a camaro forum, but people really need to get over themselves and understand that the camaro, believe it or not, it is not the best thing since sliced bread. Believe it or not, others do visit this forum, and they may not own a camaro, but admire the camaro, but when they see the constant bashing of imports it will give the forum a bad rep, as well as the camaro owners, because some people do have a open mind when it comes to cars. Thats how generalizations come about. It is also true I don't take crap, I won't back down, thats just my attitude about life, maybe I need to be put in place by a mod every once in a while and tell me to cool it, being straight forward with everyone.

3.8 track v6 genesis coupe for around 26.5k at my local dealer. It was a online quote. I wish they wouldn't of did the old style interior, imo it kinda killed it for me, besides that its a cool car.

I suggest getting to know people on this site better before making blank generalizations like that.

Agreed.

DroptheGloves, I can say from time and experience that the people you describe are in the minority on this site, believe it or not. They are a sizeable bunch, but nowhere even close to the 98% you suggest.

A couple more thing to consider before "stating facts as you see them"...

#1-- Facts cannot be seen. They simply are. Most come from scientific testing and trials. Anything that is seen or perceived is an opinion -- which yours is.

#2-- The Camaro IS the best thing since sliced bread to many people here. And that is why they are here. It is not because they are "blind", or "fanboys", it's because they like the Camaro above all others for some reason or another. You are clearly not one of these people, and that's OKAY....just don't belittle our feelings because you disagree, and try to pass it off as 'fact'...it just doesn't fly.

It's a nice car, but I didn't buy the Camaro just based on which car can drive the fastest.
