Doesn't make any sense....

I've seen news on other sites about the LS9 Camaro trying to break speed records at the track. Here's my problem with that. It doesn't seem as impressive a feat when you have to actually use a different motor in order to achieve the quarter-mile in the low 9.0's. Dude, if you can afford an LS9 motor, you better be **** sure it is fast. I see this as not being any more impressive than buying a ZR-1. The Camaro probably costs as much heavily modified with the LS9 engine than a new ZR-1 anyway. Not impressed; Don't care. If you can get to the low 9.0's with the LS3 modified, now THAT is newsworthy.

Original Information:

LPE Performance continues to push down the quarter mile times on its shop LS9 Camaro, and they are now knocking on the door of the 8 second range!

After running a 9.974 back in July, the LPE LS9 Camaro recently hit 9.04 @ 159mph at the Muncie Dragway, achieved with a most impressive 1.377 60 feet!

You do know an ls9 is basically a supercharged ls3 right?

I agree except isn't it about having the fastest Camaro? Don't actually think they were trying to impress you.

You mean having the fastest vehicle that happens to be using a Camaro body?

Rodimus, I'm not sure of the technical particulars but I don't think so. It costs so much more than an LS3 though.

LS3 = $8100.00

LS9 = $24000.00

Better do 9.0's man!!

Looked like the fastest Camaro, ran like the fastest Camaro, clocked in like the fastest Camaro. I'd call that the fastest Camaro...so far.

Hahaha!!!! Yeah, I think it's a pure dragster, but it's only running against itself I think. If I had an LS9, I wouldn't care about 9.0's or 10.0's.

When you get a car running low 9's thing always start to break.. If I can run low 11's or high 10's I will be extremely happy..
