GM High-Tech Performance 2010 Camaro Shootout!!!

3rd Annual GM Performance Parts LSX Shootout October 15-18 Memphis Motorsports Park Memphis Tn.


If you have a '10 Camaro you need to be in this class. If you have a friend with a '10 Camaro please tell him that he needs to race in this class. There is a great opportunity to see your car in the pages of GM High-Tech Performance magazine, the #1 late-model GM book on the planet!

GM High-Tech Performance 2010 Camaro Shootout Class Rules:

Each contestant will be required to register and compete in the Tremec True Street class (vehicles must meet True Street rules) on Saturday and complete all three runs, only the fastest eight 2010s will be selected. The eight competitors who have the fastest 3-pass averages will be placed on a sportsman ladder and will race heads-up on a 4/10 Pro Tree. Each Camaro must have an LS or LLT (V-6)-based motor, OEM-style transmission, electronic fuel injection and be stock-appearing. Racing seats are permitted, and each car must comply with applicable NHRA and NMCA safety rules.

The winner will receive an LSX block courtesy of Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center as well as an LSX Shootout jacket, plaque, and a feature in GM High-Tech Performance magazine.

The runner-up will be awarded a jacket and a plaque; all contestants will receive LSX Shootout T-shirts and subscriptions to GMHTP.

Sounds fun but............I dont wanna put a cage in my car and I know these events they are very strict. I dont imagine alot of "fast" cars will be there. When I say fast I'm talking about mid to high 10 second cars.

I'd love to participate, but dont wanna make the haul for 1 pass.

Safety is the most important thing at all of our events and should be at every drag strip. Insurance for these events is costly and that's one of the requirements to get the insurance is that all cars comply to all NHRA safety rules.

Word is that there are several cars capable of mid to low 10's and high 9's planning on being at the shootout.

My car goes in for the roll bar very soon.

Let me get this right, The engine has to appear to be stock. So how do you figure there will be cars that are in the 10's and 9's? Juice, SC's or turbos
aren't "stock appearing."
CAI's, Long tubes, exhaust, cams, rear gears, drag tires, I can see would be
allowed, but nothing else.

I just got news of another 10 SS out there that's supposed to be on the road before the Shootout that will be running close to 450 CI on an LSx block with a DP system. I figure with what I have & will be testing this week that I would be able to carry Mid 10's, but Mid 10's may not even get you into the top 8 from the street shoot out. I'll be contacting someone about a Cage this week. Hope they have time to pull it off. Only need a bar down to 9.99 PER NHRA.

My 9 Second 4th Gen in street trim (tight converter & no bottle runs low 11's) I can sort out the progressive while doing T&T for the next 2 weeks before the event so see where I can hold my ET. It's only got an 8 point also.

No Gen 1 small blocks or big blocks.

LS would be
LS1
LS2
LS3
LS6
LS7
LS9
LSA
LSX
or any LS based iron block.

LLT of course would be the V6 engine.

Either the LS or the LLT

Well, I have a twin turbo setup and it looks very stock, you see it and you think I only have a CAI.

Robin: Can you clarify this? I read that for the street class, all you need is you license, insurance ID and registration. Is that correct? Is there an additional insurance that must be purchased? or will the registration fee of $150 is all we would need?

What is the ET that requires a rollbar? 11.5?

Thanks! It runs goods, took it to the track on Sep. 2nd and was only able to run 12.3 on a 2.1 60' time becasue I was spinning the tires half the track. I just received sways and DR's, I'm going back to the track next week to see what it will do.

I may tune it and add 1 or 2 more lbs of boost. Right now I'm running 7.8 lbs of boost.

No additional insurance required. I think he was talking about the event insurance is costly and to keep that in check they must follow the rules for NHRA tech to a T.

Roll bar required below 11.50, Roll Cage below 10.00 as long as the firewall and floor are unmodified.

Anyone have the specific times on exactly when the '10 cars will have to be there & run? Our car will be far from competitive I'm sure, but I was kinda *hoping* to have the LS7 & new trans (and whatever other goodies we have time to throw on!) in by this event so we could drive down and make a few shake down runs...but it's gonna be *tight* on whether it's done or not!

We usually hit the NMCA event with our '69 Y-Camaro, but it ate a bearing at the last event, so we're running out of yellow toys!

I'll be there. I live here so its no biggie for me. I am entering mine in the car show and probably the race as well. I have 595 to the wheels with 588 TQ now after a few tweeks to my setup. If it looks like I will not even be close to competitive I may not run though. Just gonna see what all is there first.

What happened?

WOW! What a shame ... all these guys that had fast cars that didnt even show up because of a lot of internet BSing. I hope this is a lesson learned. We could have (and should have) had not only a full field of 8 cars but 8 FAST cars. There were only 2 or 3 cars running in the 10s (and HIGH 10s at that). Hopefully people just go next year and not worry about what all the keyboard cowboys have to say.

I know there is some talk with in GMPP & NMCA about what thier going to do with the 2010s for next years event. Lets not let them down! Bring your cars out regardless of what someone else claims to have. There are way too many modified 2010s running around not have had a full field. Think about the message this sends the promoters. They gave us an awesome opportuninty and we couldnt even fill an 8 car field.

My car wasnt even finished and I still brought it. I have no intention of putting a cage in my car any time soon and if I had gotten a tune in it, I would have raced anyway. If they threw me out, so be it, but I would have made a pass at the shootout and had something to talk about instead of an excuse to hide behind. And with the power I made, it would have been a good pass (something worth getting thrown out over I hope )

We have a year to get our crap together and make a killer showing next year. Lets not let the community down again.

A lot of people didn't show up because they didn't have their cars done or they are just dyno queens

I thrashed until the last minute on Thursday night to get the LSA Camaro ready. It's not as easy as people would have you think.

We had several bugs to work out and never made a decent pass down the track. We were there it drove around but that was about it. I applaud those who had their cars there ready to run. Owen and Steve built some wild cars and should have been able to sho w off their stuff.

Because of the 3 run true street style format we were treated instead to moderate Camaros.

I say heads up, 3 qualifying passes and an all run field.

Hell I am still sorting out the bugs.
