We know who will win, just depends on how good the C5 hooks up will determine by how much. I'm guessing close to a full 3 seconds in the 1/4

Yup, bring a chain to tie to the C5 so you can stay close! They run low 13s stock. That will drop to very low 12s with a 125 shot.

That would not even be a race. Even without the 125 shot the C5 Corvette would win.

C5 (properly driven) FTW

add on the 125 shot, and its not even a race. Just a game of see how well you can attempt to keep up.

No chance if both are stock, c5's run high 12s (12.8s)...auto camaro is lucky to hit low 13s. Add the 125 shot and he'll pass you like you're standing still.

Well you could always hope he smokes the hell out of the tires and you get him out the hole. Any other situation besides maybe his engine blowing and you are toast.

Is this simply a case of 'I have 400hp and the vette only has 350hp' or do people really think C5s are that slow in general?

K vid on you tube if any one wants to see it. Know you cant have vids on here but didnt know if you could post out links I didnt think it did to bad though ran to 102 since that is clost to 1/4 mile for most camaros. Do you think the camaro could win with a 125 shot or would the c5 still win or tie?

an auto with a 125 shot would win easy.

Considering the stock autos are nudging high 12's now with the weather.

But anyways you have 0 chance of beating a sprayed vette with a stock ss. Zero.

HAHA WOW, my bad. I thought it was your camaro that was being compared for some reason, my bad.

I mean its the opposite, the camaro is the slow car, the vette is the fast one...


Which is relative because they're both fast, but comparatively, you know what i mean.

That's not a stock Vette. I'm looking at the "LS1 RX7" and guessing you drive an RX7 equipped with an LS1 motor?

stock A6 SS vs stock C5 should be very close, stock M6 SS should take a stock C5 by a car or two

I'm guessing the "A" and the "M" are in reference to the transmissions. Is there a huge difference between a Camaro with a manual and a Vette with a manual? I'm just trying to possibly gain a little knowledge here, not being sarcastic in any way.

You guys are seriously underrating an LS1 powered vehicles abilities and it's almost embarassing.

Guys, the camaro has no chance. 1. its an auto, so it loses more of its hp through the drivetrain to the wheels, 2, the vette is a vette, it would smoke the camaro without the nitrous, and with. Well, you should try it and see how many cars you "win" by.

I don't know, but an LS1 'Vette with 125 shot of nitrous isn't making 350 hp anymore.

thats a 2003 C5 , 2004 was the last year and much like the LS1 fbods the later year C5s are faster than the earlier ones
its also a M6 car and I would doubt you will find a faster time for a stock C5 anywhere


Much like LS1 fbods there are extremes in times, for every 12.7 second C5 you see you will find a hundred ones that ran in the low to mid 13s

Do you honestly believe a 97/98/ A4 C5 wouldnt lose by several cars to a 2010 M6 SS??

Look at the 0-60 time on the run you dug up "Baur made several more high 12-second runs, but the 12.7 wasn't to be topped. The Stalker radar gun told us that the Vette turned in 0-30 times of 2.2 seconds and a 0-60 sprint in only 4.7."


hmmmmm seems like what any 2010 SS should be capable of and like I said thats a 2003 M6 car, what would a earlier model year car click off??


and your right, its embarassing how much I underrate Ls1 cars, I have only owned 8 different ones, how many have you owned??
