First New Camaro Run

So It finally happened, in Mexico of course...

I spotted a yellow w/black stripe Camaro (transformer bumblebee version w/transformer badges) sitting at a gas station and as I passed I thought this was a great opportunity to finally get a run with one. Ive been waiting and looking for the chance but none have presented themselves to me until now. As I pulled up he was pulling out and I followed him onto the highway were we toyed with each other for a bit. The traffic wouldnt allow a run right away so I just paced him and hung around for the right moment.

We eventually exited and ended up at a light but it wasnt a light you can run from because it turns right after you go under the light. I talked with him and his (drunk) girlfriend, asking if they wanted to run. I also said that if he was otw home from a bar and was a little intoxicated and didnt want to run that it was perfectly fine and I respect that. He said nah lets run and his girl yelled some **** like if you can run. She was obviously a little hammered and was having a great ole time.

We went through the light and lined up on the feeder road. Our first run was bogus cause his girl just stuck her hand out the window and counted to 3 on her fingers. I gassed on the third finger but apparently she didnt tell the driver what she was doing. He didnt go at the right time and since I ended up jumping out infront immediately I knew he didnt hit the gas. So I let off and he passed me. We lined up again and this time I rolled down my window and said honk it off on 3. She relayed the message and he started honking.

We are rolling at aprox 50mph and I was in 2nd gear, on the third honk we both gassed it. I jumped out enough for him to disappear from the corner of my eye. Had him all the way through second, most of third and he started pulling on my on the top of third. He had about a half a car maybe more and we had to shut it down cause there was a light coming up that was red.

Talked with him briefly after the run but he wasnt very talkative and I ended doing most of the talking. I asked if he was stock and he said totally stock. Told him that I had a few things like diablosport, short shifter and CAI. He didnt really say anything at all to be honest. I told him great run, thats about what I expected... said I figured he would pull on the top end. Told him good run again and that it made my night. His girl said good run... light changed green and we went our separate ways.

All in all it was a great run and Im pretty happy with the results. I kinda expected it to be a little closer but maybe it would have been if we could have ran out 4th gear too. Either way finally got my first run with a new SS Camaro. It was manual btw... or atleast I assume it was cause he threw some revs.

I died... owell, enjoyed it and look forward to the next one.

I found out it was MellowYellow04s friend in his Supercharged Lingenfelter Camaro. So he was just messing with me basically.

I ran him straight up a couple days later with one passenger in each car, he short shifted every gear at 5k and put about 2 cars on me. Ran from around 40 - 100 or so...

He had 2k rpm left he could run out if he wanted to and he would probably put a bus link on me or more. 550rwhp... just the basic supercharger setup from Lingenfelter.

Yep its just a matter of time before I get the opportunity again. I would love to race another near stock C6 like I had a while back. I did better then I thought I would and it was a pretty close race, with the top end edge to the vette.

I work near a big Chevy dealer and I see the new Camaros all the time. Very impressive cars. Should be seeing more, now that you can pick up one for under MSRP.
I might even have to trade my Camaro in on a new one!
Should be interesting on the street once those new 5.0 Mustangs start showing up.

Time to get that cam sitting in my garage installed.

Yeah the time will come....

I ran a c6 Z06 couple days ago, that was fun...

Went from like 30mph - 110 or so. Was dead even 1st and part of 2nd, when he hit the top of 2nd and shifted to third he was gone. Ide say 4 cars.... maybe more its hard to judge.

If you have a modded GTO and the 2010 Camaro SS is stock, there's nothing to worry about.
