I'd be willing to work on price for a V6er. I think these would be best on an automatic car. Manual guys, be aware that our 1st gear is super high to begin with so with 3.55 gears its extremely difficult to get traction in 1st. BUT it can be done! Just takes a lot of skill. Auto cars however, should have no problem.

Thank - you.........good luck with the sale. I just bought a set of those (but they were 265/40/18) 2 hours ago from one of my local Detroit 5th Gen Camaro club members. Going to the track Sunday to test them out.

Thanks and sweet dude, how much did they set you back? Not too big a difference between 245 and 265 so I'm very interested to see how you do.

While at the track today, a V6 Camaro with the IPF Supercharger system arrived. He is a recently new member to our Detroit 5th Gen Camaro Club. I will need him to post his time slip. But what I can tell you is he ran a 12.809 @ 110.90 mph.

Here are some photos of his Camaro. I will post a video of his run when it is done loading.

Mike congrats on your sweet 13.7 run! That is awesome.

That IPF run is also very exciting stuff...12.8 on stock tires, with the open rear is kick arse.

Well these may be the last times she runs. I am considering retiring her from the track now that it is the end of the season and come next summer/beginning of track season I'll be in the market for either a 1SS/RS L99 or a 1LE/1SS/RS.

Tires used on the pass: Stock P-Zero's with rear PSI lowered to around 26 and front raised to about 38. The rears are brand new. I replaced my rears earlier in the week and did a good burnout on them on my first pass. It's not posted because it was a bad run, lol. It was TnT so iffy track prep.
Mods (if any): CAI intake, Trifecta tune, RX Oil Catch Can, RX Oil Breather, Ethanol free Premium Gas

Temps were low that night and humidity was about 50% I believe. I stopped running not too long after that last slip because of wheel hop and the temps started getting really cold. Even my buddies SS that had DRs and he has a lot of mods was getting wheel hop so we stopped and just enjoyed the people making runs.

Awesome run on that V6 with the IPF. Makes me consider getting it, but I am leaning towards a SS now too much.

DUDE that is a great run! 2.0 60' is great too in 50 degree weather no matter how good track prep was. 1.85-1.9 should be possible too meaning your car has a bit left on the table, at least .2 tenths or more.

Im quite happy my set up idea worked too because I wasn't good enough to do so.

Lolol if anyone wants a similar set up to catman hit me up!

This proves that 300 tires and up are not necessary. 245-275 max should be spot on.

I'm really impressed guys - good work!

I agree with DarkneSS - 2.00 60' times def means you have a little left on the table if you can cut a sub 2.00.

I think the 13.7 has alot left on the table bc you're only trapping 95-96 mph. If you can get over 100mph trap...well you get the picture.

But the important thing here is that mid 12's are on the table for supercharged v6's!!! and mid 13's are happening for the NA crowd. You guys do us proud, haha.

If only I knew what I was doing...

Yes!!! Good old Jersey.

Sunabitch beat me again. We had a great time. Congrats Rich on the new NA PB. I did pull a 1.95 sixty on the my Goodyear street tires on a cold track. That was cool.

Now I have to get me a pair of these Brand Name skinnies up front.

True. I should have added that point. When at or near sea level and running in 40 - 50 degree weather is perfect condtions to prodcut good - DA numbers. Where you are at, I am sure when it gets to 50 degrees, everyone breaks out the winter parka's.......

Pretty much. I was born and raised half my life in Chicago. It's kind of funny when it gets "cold" down here. God for bid when it snows!
