id imagine the camaro will be quicker then that. but the challenger sounds about right. camaro will prob be tested around 4.7 seconds. its a heavy car. challenger will prob weigh in around 4700 or 4650 id imagine.


but the times dont seem way out of spec. remember magazines usually suck at quarter mile times. 14.5 for my SRT but lots are goin 14.0 bone stock.

i guess 3700+ pounds is going to be the rule, instead of the exception now. at least there is some HP to get the tanks moving

I think that there will be a ZL-1 edition camaro that will have the new ZO6 engine in it probably some special order deal but I am sure that them motors have 500 hp so the 0 to 60 times could be way off for the camaro and if They build it I WILL buy it!

The ZO6 vette does 0-60 in 3 seconds if the camaro gets the same motor we might see close to the same results!
