0 to 60 time

I kept reading all the talk about the L99 being slow so I had to see for my self. The wife and I went to dinner tonight and on the way home we did a couple of runs on a deserted hyway. I hit the button twice to put it in compettive mode mashed the gas while hitting the stop watch and boy that was fun. Two runs and both were 5.5 seconds 70 degrees in Oklahoma, and I barked the tires both times. It may do better if I just do it in sport mode. I think these numbers are pretty good compared to what some are getting. What do you think?

I got 5.1 in my L99 at 90deg weather. Also drove another car with a tune... you won't believe the difference. The car totally comes alive and chirps the tires from 1st to 2nd.

Not too bad with two people in the car. How did you time it?

I'd guess it should run faster with only one person in the car? Every pound makes a difference. So, probably not too bad.

It's hard not to worry about it. Those of us waiting on our A6 are following these threads closely. Yes, the odds are in our favor that we won't get one with the "slows." Yes, it is only a few, but it should be none. I'd rather be reading about breaking output shafts on the A6 rather than cars that can occassionaly get sub 6 sec 0-60.

Plus, knowing your about to spend ~40K for a car and you might end up with a car that won't perform as advertised. However few there are, I don't see how you can't worry about it - at least for those of us who are buying it for the performance in addition to the style.

Mine's not here yet. I'm not worrying about it. If there's something wrong, it can be corrected. No big deal. I'm not one to worry about things I can't control. I'll live longer that way.

Many people are murdered or mugged every day. Do you worry about that? I'll bet not. This is insignificant compared to that. Don't sweat it.

No doubt, I worry about a great many things I shouldn't. I can't control getting murdered or mugged, but I can decide not to buy this car.

I admire your ability to "not worry." I guess I was just commenting that some of us do, regardless of how insignificant it may be.

is there a sport mode in the automatic transmission.. (not manual but sport mode?)

Seems CTS V owners with the automatic trans are finding the transmission starts off in
2nd gear unless in sport mode..

maybe thats whats happening with the camaro SS w/ the automatic transmission..

For the guys with automatic transmissions that are finding the car fast? finding it taking off in first gear whereas the guys who are reporting somewhat slower than expected times taking off in second gear without even knowing it.. ?

Might be something to consider.

Just throwing this out there.

Pull the shift lever down to M That is sport mode. For manual, just start using paddle shifters with the transmission in M. THat's it

I'm in awe at your ability to not give a damn. Guess I'll live a shorter life.

I do all my runs in the same spot, no traffic there and it heads up to an onramp for the highway.

Best I ever did was 4.6 seconds 0-60. Second best was 4.86.

The rest have floated in the 5-5.3 range. At this point I'm satisfied enough that I'll wait till the weather cools down a bit before I try to convince my fiance to come out for a day at the track. SS vs GT, like it was meant to be.

Not bad at all, especially since your not running at sea level. But 70 degrees is decent temperature for making power.

Guys that usually run low 13s (at sea level tracks) tend to run mid to high 13s in North Texas (Dallas area) and Oklahoma. That's my experience. I lived just south of Oklahoma City for 6 years.

I just called Dash hawk and they said it would work with a 2010 CAMARO.

Have you tried it ? Why do you say it will not work ? Has anyone on this site used the DASH HAWK on a 2010 CAMARO ?

THANKS,

On their list of supported cars it does not list the 2010 Camaro on their site.

They probably just list all the cars that are KNOWN to work. But the Camaro uses the same CAN OBD bus that every other new car uses so there's no reason it wouldn't.

Heres a nice performance meter K.A.T. Matrix 3 axis accelerometer that wont break the bank and can be used on any car.

My friend has this and a G tech pro and says its just as accurate as the G tech. I picked one up and its great.

And its less than $30 bucks.
