I thought the manual was faster in the 0-60?

Me, too. So throw up some of those numbers as well.

I'll say:

Slalom Speed: 63.2mph
200ft skidpad: .88g
Braking (70-0): 156ft

I thought I read somewhere that the SS pulls .97 g's on the skidpad?

Personally I'm thinking about 13.9-14.1 for the V8 and 12.9-13.1 for the V8. Better with really good drivers (for both engines).

0-60 will be about 5.8 for the V6, about 4.6 for the V8 manual and about 4.5 for the V8 auto.

The Camaro is lighter than the GXP and the GXP hp is rated at 415hp - where as the LS3 MT6 Camaro is rated at 422. I am hoping for at least 4.5sec with launch control.

Why does everyone think the LS3 with MT6 (422hp) will be slower than the L99 (400hp) Auto?
Because the auto is geared lower 1st thru 4th, this may make up for the difference?

V6 -- 0-60 5.9s, 1/4 14.3
V8 -- 0-60 4.6s, 1/4 12.7-12.8 (anything slower than I will get a Corvette instead. There is no way I am going to be on par with a 4.6L Mustang with over a 100hp difference [422-315 = 107hp]).

Manual V8 - 4.6....13.3....108
Auto V8 - 4.9....13.4....106

Mustang is 13.8 and you must consider the sizeable weight difference.

1/4 mile: 13.51@100

SS Manual
0-60: 4.8 seconds
1/4 mile: 13.35@104Of course, this will depend on the weight of the driver plus any testing equipment they have on-board at the time of the test. I'm assuming 180lbs over the curb weight in the figures above.

0-60 -- 4.6


I'll see that bet and raise you one!

12.7
0-60 in 4.5!
I like the way you think

I'd have to agree. My 95 Z had about the same hp as the 10, and with gears and decent traction, I went low 12's at 114. I'd say with a good exhaust gears and traction, low 12's are within reach. A few mods and 11's will be right there!

I think the Skidpad numbers are a little optomistic..I see a .92 for this car, 1/4 mile time 12.9 at 109 mph on a good day. 4.5 0-60

Anybody know the Skidpad numbers for the G8 GT?

I'm guessing .97 for the SS....but I think the V6 will be very close to the G8 GT (since they share the same suspension...with a few tweaks in the V6's favor)

The G8 GXP weighs a bit more and has a bit less power so I would hope that the Camaro SS manual will be good for high 12's in the 1/4 and at most 4.5-4.6sec 0-60 times.

The optimism and hope is strong in his thread.

In all honesty, I would also like to see the SS dip into the 12's, I just don't think it is going to happen in stock trim on the stock tires. 3860/3913 is a lot of weight to get moving from a dead stop (trust me, I know). Yes, on a perfect day, with a perfect driver, with some sticky tires and a great 60ft time, I'm sure it will happen, but please, let's not hold that up as the norm if it does.

As for the skidpad numbers, I think some of you that are looking for .94g's or better are going to be disappointed. It's going to be very hard to build a mass-produced car and get those kind of numbers. Remember, production cars have to please a large cross-section of buyers so they by nature have to sacrifice in some performance for the sake of ride quality, smoothness, etc. Does the Camaro chassis have the ability to put .97+g's sure, but not on the suspension this car will be delivered with. Again, I hope I am wrong.
