dragrace4fun ^ Exactly. Oh, and I had my 100+ lbs in my trunk with subs, box, amp, and cap back then. Then again, it helped me plant power on my factory suspension.

pitbull4.6 I have no issues smoking camaros without the bottle. They may make more hp but for what ever reason they just dont seem to plant the power the way mustangs do. Its been like this since the 80's.

Blackbird1084 If they both have cams the camaro retains the edge. Spray him and don't look back.

dragrace4fun I ran with one of the newer Camaros once toying around; neck/neck but I had the grip advantage when I grabbed a gear. This was BEFORE I got the Bama tune issue sorted. I would leap ahead of him and 3rd gear I slightly pulled ahead...his front fender was about even with my mid-door area. Street tires (me on 275s), and he jumped me when I wasn't paying attention from a dig. Think you'd be surprised how little of an advantage that extra power does for them...depends mostly on the driver, I'd say.

JustcruisinGT Any results???

281pimp He has the advantage on motor, but w/o drags that evens things up. Plus if his is manual and yours an auto, it will also depend on his driving. Launching a 6 speed on street tires vs/ an auto on drags could mean a whole 1 second off the 60ft.

king_Ahmet The nitrous is gonna be the key IMO. N/A vs N/A he'll get you, no doubt about that.

As mentioned, LSX respond great to mods, especially cams. Do you have a tune for nitrous? I hope so...

GerRod If he can drive, you will lose N /A'ed. You sprayiny it'll be close. Pick em!

True this, but it doesnt take much to make ours fast either.

Not really... I ran against an 99 SS Camaro with drag radials against my street tires, steeda cai and tune, steeda shifter, and off road x... I beat him by 3 tenths... I was worried honestly but he ran a 14.2 for aome reason. Thats not the only LS1 ive ran and beat either

LAStang1234 Sub'd...let us know how it goes!

JustcruisinGT I just saw he had a cam, honestly now it depends on the size of the cam he installed. LSX motors respond incredibly well to a cam swap. He might be close to 500 rwhp....

JustcruisinGT When I was just cat back, tune, and cai I raced a stock Camaro from a roll several times and even though he won it wasn't bad. He didn't really start to pull until around 100 mph or so

about a 300lb weight difference
And a 100 + HP advantage and a 100 lb/ft more torque. These both have a slight edge over the weight. Makes it a pretty good match though I agree.

prowatt! I've played with a couple 2010+ Camaros. Both times at the track, both on street tires and both stock Camaros. I beat them both pretty easily and I'm not a very good drag race driver They would pull on me after 110 mph, I'm sure. With cams I think I could keep up until around 125-130 ish.

I played with a couple of the really ugly Camaros on the street. Not full racing just spirited driving. One had an obvious cam swap. The other had at least LT's. Both fucked me up
