How tough are our new camaros ?

Just as the title says, How tough are our new camaros ?

How many miles on your car? Is it an A6 or M6? How Many drag runs have you done? What has broke ? What breaks? (nothing broken is good!)

I'm sorry, but are you for real? If you are honestly trying to gather information as you're honestly trying to learn everything about cars, then I do apologize. It's just that your threads seem so that it seems like a humorous jab.

Maybe a C5 implant to cause uproar?

Reminds me of this thread:

perhaps you mean tough.

when you get into drag racing (especially with drag radials or slicks), everything isn't gonna hold up forever. Limit the wheel hop and things should last longer.

and if you beat the snot out of any car, you should expect that sooner or later something is gonna break.

Great solid feeling car I have had allot of imports over the years and they all seemed cheap in comparrison to the maro. It has a very solid feal and I dont forsee any parts breaking in the near future.

Sorry man, I'm serious. Are you on high alert looking for c5 people who post on your site? I am a user of both sites. I hope there is not some issue with that.

The camaro has been out since 2009 and I'm sure a lot of people have given them some beatings. Mine is only a few months old, but other people have had them for a year. Some people beat on them every day so those people would know if the car is realy tough.

As far as Camaro5 I ask the same questions there but that's irrelivant because we are here on morderncamaro right now.

Absolutely not. I just browsed that thread the other day over "there" and I thought that as your threads have been quite "different" that maybe you were just trying to see how long we'd "hold the line."

Mine has proven to be very durable. I have sprayed it with Nitrous, with the original transmission. I have then installed a LSA Crate engine and run in the 10's on radials.

I do think that they did a decent job with the design of the components. Unless you have wheel hop or torsional loads on the drive line your going to have a hard time breaking it. The clutch is probably the weakest link and it should be. It's a wearable replacement part and is cheap compared to rear axles and transmissions.

This is the stuff I want to hear about. The driveline took the nitrous. The rest of the driveline took the LS7, ect..

But nobody is saying how many miles they have on the car or how old it is.

I haven't heard of an auto blowing up yet, plenty of clutches and a few axle shafts.

Considering the nature of this vehicle and the minimal amount of time they have been on the road, I don't think you're going to get the type of feedback that one truly needs for "durability."
