got new camaro need advise

How much can one at the drag strip put on 2010 LS3 2SS M6 with CAI, Borla axle back, skip shift eliminator, and BMR trailing arms without hurting it? New to this camaro and can not afford to break it.

kinda hard to say...some are hitting the track with a lot more power and not breaking anything...some are not so lucky. Also depends on you and how you drive it.

i don't beat it too hard but would like to see what time I can turn in the 1/4. I've dropped u-joints on muscle cars past, seems to be the first to go, I watched a shelby cobra jump 2 feet and drop his u-joints sunday. was hopeing to hear that as long as i have street tires(perelli) beat it all you want.

I agree with sdoom's intended answer of if you can't afford to fix it, you shouldn't race it!

If you don't have any wheel hop (and if you do have wheel hop, get off the throttle)...you should be OK. But if you beat the snot out of any car you'll break something sooner or later.

Probably the weak links are the axles...but I have heard of some drive-shafts breaking.

Yeh, I can't aford to break it so I think I'll put a set of long tube headers, tune it and leave it be.

You're not going to break it with those little mods haha. Don't worry. Rear ends have been holding up with a lot more horsepower than that.
