Question LS3 Camaro with Bolt Ons

Hello. I have a question for all the drag racers or armchair racers out there. I know that the ESX LS3 Corvette with a mild cam and bolt-ons was able to go 10.89. The 2010 Camaro however, is quite a bit heavier. How quick do you think we'll see the 2010 Camaro go with the same kind of mods? Also how quick without the cam and just bolt-ons?

I am not the expert here by any stretch of the imagination, but I have heard that 100lbs = .1 of a second. So if you figured with the same mods and the arodynamics of the car and the added wieght I would guess, high 11s. Just a guestimate.

I would say mid-high 11's at the very best, but we don't even know what it runs yet, stock, so there is no telling.

What all was done to the vette? Any weight reduction?

I'd say maybe 11.7's to 11.8s just based on different weight and aerodynamics ..

I thought the vette weighed like 3280 and the camaro is 3860 which is a difference of 580lbs. So that would mean 6 tenths off 10.9 basically which would be 11.5 no? I can deal with 11.5 of course 10.8 is sooooooo much nicer!!!

Yeah I guesstimated mid 11's. That's around the Nissan GTR range, but on a car that is all motor and has 4 seats, not bad..

yeah you guy's are close, but you have to factor in gearing too... the rear-end has a lot to do with it also... with out bolt-on's I still think it would be slower than 12 that seems like wishfull thinking honestly... I'd say 12.2-12.4, with the CAM maybe 11.8 or 11.9... The fellas that think it will be a 10sec car are nutzo!!! LOL HaHA.. Keep dreaming im sorry for you.... You better be think S/C when you mention bolt-ons LOL... no way is it getting in the 10's without a S/C and Cam and Bolt-ons... IMO...

+1. I have a feeling a lot of the more optimistic numbers come from people without much drag racing experience.

Be as precise as you want. Doesn't mean its going to be accurate.

I'm going to predict that it will be in the 11.00-12.5 range. Not precise, but it will be accurate

By the way the same ls3 vette that was going 10.89 is has now run a best of 10.66 with ported heads and the cam package on a drag radial.

10/3/08

ECS takes the C6 NA record with a 10.66 @ 131.68 MPH



Doug is down at a track rental in Maryland today testing Devil's car. The previous record was a 10.76@128. This is a stock bottom end LS3 with our cam only package but we just added a set of TEA prepped LS3 heads.

Here is the recent dyno for the car...
