I have a base model 01 camaro (but I didnt swap electrics and engine out of a 95 corvette, but before I did that is had a cracked v6 lol. (the v6 comes stock on base model) must be because of the heavyer car...
I live in a place that has a 3 lane wide highway connecting 2 towns 6km apart, in the middle theres a stop light (why who knows, the towns are builting towards each other so it mite just be a sign of stuff to come)
I was going home and I was driving the trofeo I had to stop at the light Then a late model camaro can up beside me. I thought *screwed* I took him on. We even talked while the light was red, but he didnt say if he had a v6 or not. looked like a 5 speed, which mite have slowed him down. Light turned Green, I slid her into drive (do you guys keep it in OD while racing?) gave half throttle waited for rpms to rise, then floored it. *he had me off the line* almost a car length, Then I hit second gear...
going almost 50km I cought him then at 85 I hit 3rd then took off, hit 120 then shifted into OD, cought 175km/h before I hit town, 3km later... I didnt pull the rpms after I knew I had him cooked but 175 seemed to be a good cruising speed no one was out anyway. passed a few people. (lol speed limit is 80km)
I hate to see a speeding ticket for that.
Then I talked to the guy a bit more and ask him if he wanted to race my camaro, but when I told him it had a lt1 he said f*** no, I assume it was the v6 camaro. Or just a kid that would have his insurance company have his *** if he got a ticket for street racing.
But yaeh this tall geared car isnt much in the world of burn out comps. It will hit some serous speeds.
