With a sub par driver. My 28 ran consistent 13.60s bone stock. Auto 2.73 gear. And slightly losing is still losing! :)

ask any racer, wether you win by an inch or a mile....winning's winning.

Hell Ya. I can cut a 8.8 to 8.9 in the 1\8 mile with my stock tires, in the srt. That's only 12inches of total tire, trap speed is around 84-85mph. And that's pussyfootin it at that, 1500rpm drop, and short shifts 1-2 gears. Even on my chitty runs i got a 9.1 - 1\8 83mph. He must be running in the 14's then with that 1\8 mile time. I had a ls1 camero and it was a stronger runner then my srt, and that runs 13's all day. He must not know how to drive! :D

mid to low 13's without trying. The cars are usually one mod away from running 12's.

yeah but I am sure you know that the ls1 fbody had the same hp as the vette, just advertised it lower so as not to piss off the vette owners :)

well there prolly is a little difference in real hp because the camaro doesn't have a true dual exhaust but it wouldn't raise it 30hp though i dont think

actually alot of c5's dynoe less than there fbody counterparts since the IRS eats up more power than the solid rear does.

From personal experience my bone stock 2001 Z-28 Auto (2.73) car went 13.0 at 106 at over 1000 feet in Atlanta. If I had been off the mountain I would have gone 12.90's. Hell with Camshaft, Headers and Shot you can run 10's. Camaros run 13.0-13.2 all day now compare that to a 14.5 Cobalt SS. Now if 8 car lengths is a second at those speeds so you are talking about 12 car lengths in a quarter mile. If I am going to race a Camaro or any other MUSCLE CAR I am not going with my Cobalt SS. At that time I will pull out the EvilZ and send everyone home. Oh yeah EVERYONE!!! :D

The vette is indeed around 3200- but the Camaro can run up to 3600.

The Vette engine does have more power due to its exhaust, but the suspension eats alot up, so that both cars put down about the same power on a dyno.

Maybe a camaro with the driver in it will be 3600.
