It's good to hear Bee Bee is running well now. What did the GM engineers do to wake her up?

Camaro SS Clutch Compared To Mustang GT?

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone can comment on how heavy the clutch is in the Camaro SS stock? The closest car I've driven is a Mustang GT and I liked how heavy the clutch is in those cars. I sat in a manual Camaro SS and the clutch seemed to be as light as a Civic. Was I just not paying attention?
Thanks

Clutch

There has been much discussion about clutch "sensitivity" on this forum. I have driven manual trannys forever, but after my first demo drive of an SS at my local dealer, I wondered I should get an automatic.

I stalled the car 3 times before I even got on the road. Very difficult to sycro...felt like an "on-off-switch".

The good news is; as per the many posts here, the clutch just needs a couple hundred miles of break-in. I went for another demo, this time the car had 350 miles on the odo and it was just fine.

Wow! This is a really fun car to drive. I expect to submit my order for a manual 2SS within a couple of weeks.

Thanks for the heads up! How heavy is the clutch pedal compared to the other cars?

I would describe the clutch pedal feel as normal.

Mine took 1500 to 2000 to get to where it would "seem" normal ... It also could be that it took me that long to get used to it LOL ... I have an "88 and the 2010 seems to have better feel IMO anyway :-)

Please help! My brother might choose a mustang or EVO over a Camaro!


Hi, i know its his decision to basically get whatever he wants but....a mustang?!? Is he trying to cause me some mental harm because of something I did years ago?

Hes looking at a 2010 mustang GT vert, or an MR Evo X. I actually would like him to get his car before I get mine, I know he will fall in love with the Camaro. He would be getting a Camaro 2SS as early as tomorrow off a dealers lot. I think hes absolutely crazy to pass up the Camaro, but then again, I guess I'm more of a camaro nut then he is.

He simply likes mustangs....a lot!

I plan on showing him this thread in a desperate attempt to prevent disaster at some point tomorrow....

Please keep it honest...and civil.

I'm sure you've educated him on the Camaro... And I'm sure he's seen at least one in person (if not...forcibly DRAG him to a dealer!).

But if after all that he still likes the Mustang better, maybe you ought to support him in that decision. After all, it's a helluva lot better than an EVO!

LOL, that's too funny. Maybe you beat on him too much growing up and caused a 'lil brain damage??

That's okay- let him get the Mustang. You'll have the hotter car and the attention of more girls than him. Good old sibling rivalry....gotta love it

Let him buy what he wants, it's his money. I'd rather it be a GT or SS than an Evo, but at the end of the day it's his call.

LOL! And if he says "that could work both ways" tell him it can't! It's because they can't produce the camaros fast enough!

The Mustang is a fine car too.

As far as girls attention? Who knows, the Camaro seems to be a magnet for male yahoos.

If I wanted friends I'd buy a boat, If I wanted chicks I'll ride the bike.

If he simply will not consider the Camaro than you must convince him to at least get the Mustang. Anyone can make any car very fast but I don’t care how fast it is if it’s butt ugly nothing can fix that. Those EVO’s are just fugly and no amount of horse power can fix that and that goes for all those ricers. Even if I ever get beat by an EVO or any ricer I will still feel good that my car is a rolling work of art that I can just stare at for hours and drool. At least the Mustang has a cool American muscle/pony car look although nowhere near as nice as the Camaro.
