quarter mile times for a 2012 camaro ss

Hey everyone..I'm new here and new to the camaro and haven't really figured out how to navigate this site yet so I figured I would just ask. I've always been a mustang guy but about six months ago I traded my 13 mustang v6 for a new camaro 1lt but then realized that wasn't enough so I just traded that in on a new ss/rs and was wondering what you guys were running in the quarter with these cars so might know what to expect. mine is an auto and I have a budy with a 13 mustang 5.0 6 speed that wants to race me really bad and was wondering if I did a chance.

The SS is a 13 second car per the auto mags. It all depends on whether the cars are stock though and you mentioned the 5.0 is a manual so your buddy's driving skills would also factor in.

So to answer your question maybe? But even if you lose, at the end of the day he's still driving a Mustang

Drivers race. The 5.0 and SS are a close match.

The auto SS has an L99 motor with 400 ponies so the Stang has you in HP. Its a low 13 second car all day. The new 5.0's have the capabilities to run high 12's but most of them I see on stock tires are running 13's. Should be a fun race.

If you look at the top of the page in the main drag racing forum, you'll see the sticky for the 1/4 mile lists. These are the fast lists for the fastest 1/4 mile times for the forum members.
Here's the link to the Camaro SS 1/4 mile lists (stock and modded)

Traction is such a big issue for both your car and the 5.0. Whomever launches the best should win this race. You have a great chance. Just remember while street tires work well on the street, at the strip it can feel like you are trying to launch on ice.

Stock SS auto/L99 vs 5.0 manual, the latter is quicker in ET and will run mph.

But I went 13.15 stock with my L99, just have to roll out quick but not stomp the gas off the line unless the track has amazing traction.

Yep, I drove mine like I stole it right after leaving the dealership with only 9 miles on it. My car is now 4 years old and hasn't had any issues (and its been tuned and modded since it was 1 month old).

I don't think you could get that out of a stock automatic ss though
