    went to the local dunkin donuts tonight to meet a bunch of people with their rides. Bunch of bikes, imports :rice:, and my buddies camaros. My friend camaro is a 95 LT1 with some work done to it. (Intake, catback, gears, ignition, suspension, heavy duty clutch, short throw) We decided to take off at a light with no cops around... I took him off the line and had him all the way through 1st and half of second. He passes me and he's only half a car length in front. I shift into third and im coming up QUICK on him. Unfortunately there was a light so we need to slow down. I would have had him if there wasnt a light. Then going from a roll at 45 we took off again. SMOKED his ass. My friend bought the camaro from a guy who showed him a 12.8 time slip. Now i dunno to believe the cars runs that good or the timeslip a fake. But i was very surprised of how my car is running with just the short list of mods i have. maybe i do have a factory freak on my hands. Just wanted to post this and see what everyone thought. ;D

    sorry to burst your bubble but a lt1 with those mods will not run 12.8.

    and with your list of mods i would think your car would hover in the low 14's somewhere

    yeah yeah yeah, i def know it wouldnt run a 12.8, but even if there supposed to run 13 seconds, i dont think my car did that bad. You sure did know how to take away my high. :slap:

    I can show a time slip of 9.90's it doesnt mean it reflects the ability of my car :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh:, if you want to see what any car can REALLY DO line them up and get it done.

    does anyone know what an lt1 with those mods would run depending if the driver knows how to drive his car? I know i would probably run a low 14 if my tires hook. These bf goodrichs are sticky as hell
     
  7. uh...

    1995 LT1 puts out a little more power and slightly out performs the 1995 GT...

    you beat him... cause... he can't drive for poo :hammer: :thumb:

    what do you guys think about our cars running against srt-4s. Theres kids all around where i live that think there the shit cause they drive a neon. Anyone ever have an encounter with one? this kid i know up here talks alot of shit about his car. hes got a catback , stage 1 ecm, short throw, shitty tires. ive read some things saying its pretty much a drivers race blah blah blah. what does everyone think?

    dont get over cocky when you are talking about srt-4 cars, if they have the right combo they can haul major ass. There is quite a few of them around here in my area that run mid 12's all day long EASY. Just be carefull what ones you decide to take on.
     
  10. they are fast...

    tell ya what... I beat faster cars easily... s200s, 350zs, etc (i'm a dern decent driver)

    srt4s... i can't beat... I'll DESTROY them off the line... but once that turbo spools up... :eek:

    Exactly your car does not have enough to take a stock SRT4 with a decent driver. I have more go parts then you and can't beat them, 3rd gear and they will just pull you.
