l99 vs ls3

i heard that the l99 would run a better quarter mile than the ls3
is this true?
i forget where i heard it but its hard to believe
and another question is
how much will the base v8 package cost?(guesstimate)

No one will know any pricing for atleast another 2 months.

The Auto is quicker in the quarter however the Manual tops out higher in Speed in the top end.

just depends also on what kind of driving you are looking for IMO.

Well, now it's really up in the air since Paddle Shifters are confirmed for the Automatic L99.

I've been tossing this around myself. . . Do I want an auto with paddle shifter or a nice 6sp tranny. . .

Hard one to pick. . .

I suggest driving an 08 Corvette with the A6 Paddle Shifter system. Essentially the same thing, just add 500 pounds and some better looking sheet metal.

A 6-spd manual and rush hour, bumper to bumper traffic, God's way to tell us we need to work out more. Clutch goes in, shift to first, clutch goes out, accelerate, move 6 feet, clutch goes in...

oooo do i know what your talking... but a manual is so much more fun the rest of the time and it gives you more control over the car

Call me lazy, but I'm getting the auto. The paddle shifters will let me goof around when I'm out on a winding country road with no other traffic. The rest of the time, I'll stick it in "D" and forget it.

My work car is a 2005 Nissan Mazima with 5- Speed Auto sport stick. It's fun to play with occasionally. One thing that I wish it would do in manual mode is hold the redline until I make the decision to shift. Hopefully the Camaro's manumatic will be more aggressive.

If it's the same one as in the Corvette, it will.
