2010 Camaro SS Quarter Mile Dragstrip Test

A friend of mine was there when they ran this today. Bad 60 ft. time but the car looks like it has lots of potential!

thats actually a good time considering that track is the worst one to race at. i have never seen anything short of fullout drag slicks get any traction on that track. last time i ran there i raced my buddys 11.2 sec t/a there and no matter what i tried i would spin to almost the 1000 ft mark . even cruising 1-2-3 and hitting it top of 3rd to 4th the car would go sideways and instantly go nowhere. 13.8 sec passes from a car that has run 11.2 @ 124+ is no bueno!

That guy can't drive for shyte! The M6 LS3 cars can rev up to 6600 rpms. I know the car's hp drops after 5900, but the problem is the next gear starting lower in the powerband. Hold the gear you wuss!

I'm not familiar with that track in regards to prep or elevation/ DA for the test etc. but that 1/4 time sucked!

So many mess ups.

You do not do a burn out on street tires. You do a spin to remove debris...not a burn out. You also drive around the water box so you do not get water in the radial grooves and wheel wells that can drip back on the track and make you have less traction when you launch.

Launch with the launch control. Not dump the clutch, and bog like the driver did.

Who taught this guy to shift?

Why was he shifting at 6,000RPMS...where the hell is the no lift shift.

60ft times suck.

Helmet, what track let him run with no helmet?

Hell if he drove it correctly, he should be around 13.0-13.2.

Its not like he did worse from doing the burn out. He didnt lose traction. It is a new car to him so getting off the line is probably a challenge right now. I am glad it got posted for us to watch.

The 1/4 mile time doesn't bother me too much, just look at the speed through the traps. It is good so you know it is capable of more
You dont have to wear a helmet if you are over the 13s. They will let you run the first time and if you come in the 13s or lower you have to wear a helmet.
If you are losing HP at 5900 then you should shift within 200 RPMs after the peak. Also, peak torque is around 5k, as long as after you shift you are close to that RPM then you are good. No reason to push the motor well over the peak hp range and after you shift you are already over the peak tq

Sold the 68
Ready for the 2010

Torque numbers don't do much once you're already moving....it's the horsepower that keeps it going. Torque gets you off the line. I've been dyno tuning and racing for a 'little' while.

Cool video!

But yeah, that was a soft, not-trying-very-hard run.

....and to get a 13.6 @ 107.9 out of that lazy of a run, is pretty impressive.
