SS vs 08 GT500 at the track last night

So last night at the track there were 2 new Camaro SS and a bone stock 2008 Shelby GT500, and a 2009 modded GT500.

The stock GT500 (2200 miles) And it was that guys first time at the track with it.
He even had the stock good years on it and wasn't doing a burnout:
12.69 @ 115
12.57 @ 116
12.54 @ 116

The Modded GT500 had a pulley,intake,tune, exhaust and lightly spun the good years to get the dirt off ( Didn't Smoke them) and was running:

11.76 @ 119
11.72 @ 120
11.51 @ 122

I was looking at the Camaro's most of the night but the GT500 guys would always park by us after runs, (everyone else was mostly a ricer ) But it was cool listening on the modded GT500 owner give advice on to what tune, and parts the stock GT500 should buy.


Now the 2 camaros there were both LS3 M6 a Stock one, and the other had an intake, and tune, and borla exhaust.

Stock Camaro:

13.21 @ 109
13.18 @ 110
13.15 @ 110

Modded Camaro:

13.13 @ 111
12.98 @ 112
12.89 @ 112


Overall it was a night.


The fastest ricer there was a modded WRX STI running 13.3-13.5's at traps around 108 mph.



AMERICAN MUSCLE FTW!!!!!!!! (except for the charger R/T that was running 14's :( )

Seems like a large disparity between the GT500 and the SS.

When I had the GT500 I couldn't keep the tires planted for anything. Kept spinning.

LMAO! My G37s coupe, with jic suspension, FI full exhaust, injen cai,technosquare 8100rpm reflash and tune, still running on stock tires pulls a 12.79 @ 113.0mph... Imagine when I put lightweight wheels and better tires. All this from a 3.7v6 and no turbo... next mod is NOS FTW, imports rule. But the camaro is just 2 SEXXXY.

I love both imports and muscle. No h8 in my blood! Lol

The guy in the GT500 said he was launching at 1200 rpm and feathering the clutch out w/ half throttle in first then short shifting into second and then stepping on it.

I trolled the GT500 forums and it seems the average time for a stock 07-09 is mid 12's around the 115-117 mark. I wonder what

nhra stocker's time would be in a GT500 cause it seems you can drive!!!!


I also got my H2 to a 17.8 1/4 mile at 79.9

What were you expecting? They weigh about the same, and one makes over 100 hp more than the other.

Exactly, it's the nature of the beast when you start running power adders or built motors.

GT500 are just badass. If I could afford one right now I'd get it and park it next to my SS

Our Regional Manager has an 09 GT500 convertible. He removed the stripes himself a few months after he bought the car last year. He had a guy in an R/T Challenger worm his way through traffic to catch up to him, only to hit the brakes once the guy saw the Shelby badge on the trunk deck.

These are some pretty good times for a stock Camaro SS during the summer time in Florida.

Stock Camaro:

13.21 @ 109
13.18 @ 110
13.15 @ 110

Corrected these times would be in the high 12s @ 111- 112 mph.

do you have a time slip for that run? Didn't know those cars were capable of 12s with bolt ons and street tires.

08 GT500 rolls 485HP (assuming it is the same as the 07 which I had)
10 Camaro SS rolls 426 (LS3). So 60HP difference and the GT500 is a complete bitch to keep under control. The guy must really have known how to drive it, which props to him.

Those Goodyear F1's are absolutely terrible and I'm not surprised he short shifted. First is useless on GT500's. Literally.

I regret losing the speed of the GT500 but for a DD... I still think the SS is better.
