Thumbs up Stock results at the dragstrip! (L99 automatic)

Well, quite honestly, I was hoping for better.
But I think it'll wake up some with some more miles on the clock.
And it'll certainly wake up A LOT with a tune!

Bast pass of the night:
13.81 @ 103.4 with a 2.12 60-foot.

20" wheels and tires are not made for traction lol.
The car is held way back by the torque management.
First gear bogs a little off the line just like the manuals, and it's worse when trying to stall it up a little.

I am pleased to report that I experienced virtually zero wheel hop.
The only time I had a tiny bit of wheel hop is when I stalled it up, launching at about 1500rpm instead of idle.
Then I'd get literally one tiny hop, and a bog in 1st, then it'll go.

All said and done, it was a fun time!
I am not disappointed, because it will get better with time.

Stay tuned for VIDEO!

Sounds like I will need to put on 1000 miles, a CAI, and a new exhaust on before I go stallking Mustangs.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

We took Bumble Bee out friday night. Still no wheel hop too. Getting the M6 off the line is tricky. It reminds me a lot of the stock LS2 gto tune. Our best pass of the night was a 13.5 with a 2.2- 60' and it felt like spun the whole 60'

So basically the V6 camaro are very close to the V8's 1/4 mile time... As in a bad v8 driver could get beat by an auto v6?

bleh the new camaro kinda depresses me in the 60' time but boy will it start rolling eh?
i mean the only reason it depresses me in the 60' is because my first gen tundra can out run it then and only then

I wouldn't take one car's 60' time as a sample of what these cars can run.

With practice I'm sure Tim can put up a 1.8 or 1.9 60' time.
