Camaro SS

I know this normally goes in the race section, but just had to share with my homies from RM club..

Ran a brand new Camaro SS the other day on 6th, just before entering Buckley...He was in the left lane and I was in the right lane at the Airport/6th street corner....

He rolled the green light...and it was on...Dead nuts even all the way to the merge. I was in manual shift mode (like it matters), and I believe he had an automatic..

I assumed those things were really fast....I see that the auto has 400 ponies whereas the manual is rated at 425...
Was pretty fun...although I still think if I were in race tune, I may have pulled on him...Oh well...guess it's off for some more mod research...


09 G8 GT
Performance: Magnaflow Full Cat-Back - VARARAM CAI - Pedders Suspension - Staggered Set - BMR Swayzz
Other Stuff: GXP Diffuser-GXP front bumper with Custom Paint job - 3M Clear Bra - Speaker Mod - VG Sharkfin - 6K led's -Window Tint - Visor HomeLink

Hey Tony -- Nice Kill.

The Camaro I test drove from Johnson was the SS2, 6 speed Manual. I was not impressed. I didn't get on it much, maybe has better top end, not sure.

I will stick with the G8 -- That's what I went there to look at in the first place. Had the G8 been a GT or GXP, I'd have possibly been there longer working the deal....oh well. Much more room for the kids in the backseat, too.
