I just got called out by a guy with an LS1 camaro ss. His mods are pretty basic, K&N air filter, magnaflow exhaust, TB spacer and thats about it. My mods are listed in my sig. I think it's going to be pretty close. What do you guys think?

Will be close for sure, I will actually say with your mods you may win.....make sure you take all junk out the car the weight is the killer in this instance...........If you get a good jump on him, you'll take it...I think:)

It's a tough one to call, you know what year it is??

thanks for the vote of confidence guys. He and I got into it on a thread on an fbody forum I frequent and he decided the best way to settle it was with a race. He said street, I said track. Unless it's at the track I won't be racing

video is a promise. I'll have to use my digital camera so it probably won't be the best quality but oh well.

If you want to borrow the drag radials let me know, you are welcome to them, makes a big difference in traction. :eek: Drive it like you stole it (you got such a good deal you almost did:lol: )

I think the SRT8 would be faster if both were stock. I also think your mods are beter than his. As long as you drive well you should win.

His limited "mods" are good for about 10 whp.
Don't know what kind of power your making now, but unless your running a 13.4 or quicker he might take you.
Especially if the SS is an M-6 and he knows how to drive.
Good luck.

If your heads gave you any hp advantage (no cam?!??) then you'll win.

What's wrong w/ going from a roll in 2nd from 55 to 85mph on the street??

the previous owner did the heads, I plan on doing a cam swap sometime soon. and I guess technically nothing is wrong with it, I just think it safer at the track. I don't want to take any chances bc I feel the need to show big balls. I know the track is not 100% safe but atleast it is controlled.

And lastly, on a track you will walk away with a timeslip proving the outcome which you can then scan and post for the world to see... on any forum you'd like! :)

Otherwise for all you know the other guy could go on and on posting as if he was unbeatable and he hasn't come across an SRT8 that can take him, generally making an ass of himself but nonetheless wasting valuable net bandwidth, blah blah blah... ;)


Once again, you earn mucho respect from me for your decision to keep the match out of the realm of the dumb unwashed masses that could innocently and unwittingly stumble across your "private track".
