We haven't used a dyno yet, so these are GM-provided flywheel numbers.

The car will have enough power to let you learn to drive the stick. I don't think you will have as much trouble as you think. My little girl starting driving a stick when she was 7 yrs old on my farm and it was a little Ranger with a 4.0 and she never stalled it at all.

also comes down to traffic...if your in bumper to bumper on a daily basis for long periods of time thats game over, automatic would win for just sheer ease...


but some people think a racing car isnt a racing car without a stick shift; i wish i was taught a stick but no one will let me learn on their car...wonder why id pay 30k to learn on my own :(

thats awesome man.. really!
tell your little girl she just motivated me to buy a 6 speed! (seriously)
and like ur saying about the car having enough power , my buddy was saying newer cars that are manual are a little bit easier to drive nowadays compared to an old school ride..
and plus i dont want to be kicking my self in the ass when this L99 ends up having a bunch of bugs.. lol (maybe?) and i have a feeling the LS3 might end up haveing more selection on aftermarket bolt ons in the future just a hunch..
i think im gonna go with the manual.,, and "dump the clutch" when i leave the dealer ship in my brand new Orange 2SS/RS with the sunroof open...

(just playin' about dumpin the clutch)

Check the reports of stick vs the 6 speed auto. This auto is faster to 60 and the quarter mile.
Plus, if you ever get stuck in a long traffic line, bumper to bumper, you would love to have an auto.

Minor "Recommended" Wiki Updates - All my opinion, feel free to ignore.

"Electical System" I think is mispelled "Electrical System", I think that is what is meant.
"Exterior/Physical" Is the LS really heavier than the LT? Possible correction needed.
"Timeline" If you are going to the trouble to mention the 1 month delay, why not add a January 9, 2009 entry that says when the delay was announced?

Recommended additions:
"Wheel / Tires" - Can we add a link/Column to the "RS package" wheels? Both LT and SS would be helpful.
"Colors" - This is a pandora's box. Why not include actual photos? Why not add interior/seat colors as well? Why not include pinstriping options?
"Pricing / Ordering" - There is a new GM 2009 Performance Parts catalog with a new Camaro section. Why not add this link as well?
Where's the section with MPG ratings? There is a blank Forced Induction section?
"Audio / Vid" section needs to be expanded - Although the information is already included in each model's Standard Equipment and options, since you opted for this section, you might was well include the cruise control/bluetooth/guages info, etc. And probably the "standard audio" if known.

We'll look into those suggestions for editing and improving out Wiki. Thanks for the input!

One thing, though. The LS really is heavier than the LT due to the steel wheels, mostly.

is it really the wheels? i didn't know they were that much heavier!

and, with the LS, is the auto really lighter than the manual? it's the other way around on the LT & SS trims.

Hello to all!

I am not sure if this is represented here, but does anyone know of the ORIGIN of the Camaro name? Well, I have found this little tid-bit that I think should be a part of the WiKi! Check it out:

Camaro Folklore
Ever wonder where the name Camaro came from? In the archives of Chevy folklore, this question was asked when the new Camaro was first introduced. What they told the press was that the word Camaro came from an "obscure 1935 French-to-English dictionary," and it means "comrade, pal, or chum."

My best buddy (who has a 65 Convertible Chevelle found this on ultimateperformance.ca)

AUDIO / VIDEO / NAV / BLUETOOTH

2010 Boston Acoustics Audio System Specs
(standard on 2LT and 2SS models, available on 1LT and 1SS models)

  • 245-watt
  • 9 Speaker
  • 6.5-inch woofers in each door
  • 1-inch tweeters in A-pillars
  • 3.5-inch center channel speaker (in the upper instrument panel)
  • 7-channel sub-woofer (on rear shelf)
I think that this section could be clearer in how it breaks down the "9 speaker system". In other words, it's not clear how Chevy counts the 9 speakers.

My suggestion is something like the following:

Total System Power - 245 Watts
(2) 6.5" Speaker in Each Door
(2) 1" Speaker in Each A-Pillar
(1) 3.5" Center Speaker
(4) Co-Axial 6"x9" Speakers on Rear Deck (each 6"x9" has 2 speakers)

Milk,

I'm not sure if you made any changes or not, but the way it currently reads is still quite confusing:

Specifically, the "7-channel sub-woofer (on rear shelf)" part appears to be incorrect, or at the very least, misleading. Again, I would suggest breaking it down as to how the 9 speakers add up:

Total System Power - 245 Watts
(2) 6.5" Speaker (Woofer) in Each Door
(2) 1" Speaker (Tweeter) in Each A-Pillar
(1) 3.5" Center Speaker
(4) Co-Axial 2-Way 6"x9" Speakers on Rear Deck (each 6"x9" has a Woofer & Tweeter)
(9) Speakers Total

Cheers,
-Alan
