The new 2011 300hp V6 would give a pontiac G8 GT a good run.

Damn...that 5.0 is sick! I want one now.

And even though I would never buy one, I'm really impressed with the new v6. It actually sounds half way decent too...the older 3.8 sounded like ass and made no power. The 4.0 was a little better power wise, but still sounded like a lawnmower.

Be sure to read our review.

http://www.corral.net

We got the car to 12.8 @ 109 mph. That was with two people and 40 pounds of camera gear.

Until I see time slips of both next to eachother I'm going to say there's something up. The camaro didnt even launch out of the hole, the mustang was loaded up. Theres a couple lengths right there.

Also, 13.6 with 305hp in that car doesnt quite add up, especially with 280 ft-lb of torque.

33xx lbs is pretty light but that's still a stretch. 12.0 is c6 corvette territory and that's 430 hp and 3300 lbs.

the GT is 3500-3600 pounds

Curb weight 3464 lb on the V6 in the motor trend test, which is more than 500 pounds lighter than my 361hp 4000 pound G8 that ran 13.6 bone stock, looking at hp numbers to lighter weight V6 car, it will be in the 13s

poor heavy camaro

I agree with you there, the pony definitly had atleast 2 cars right out of the hole, and the holeshot can make or break a race.

I drove an SS camaro last week and the 4:1 first gear gets out of the hole HARD, nothing like the video shows.

I still think the car is too light, something doesnt quite add up.

camaro has launch control. that was not an "optimal launch"

Quote:
This device combines the effort of an electronic-driven accelerator and a computer program in the car.

The software drives the accelerator according to engine specifications to make the car accelerate smoothly and as fast as possible, avoiding spinning of the drive wheels, engine failure due to over-revving and clutch and gearbox problems.

This feature is only available at the start of the race, when the car is stopped in the starting grid. After the car is running at a certain speed, this device stops its work.
