Also in regards to fbodies, if you have an LS1 manual it'll be close as far as beating me, but you still won't. Difference becomes most apparent after 2nd. Automatic or LT1 and it's one of those "what do all your liters do?" situations.

Had it out with a new camaro - both from a stop and on the freeway. Happy to say no dice there either. It winds up alright but seems to run out of breath at certain speeds once we get past traffic and drop it down a gear. Coming out of the hole I'm faster too.

When I bought this car I just wanted something small and fun, didn't realize I can also trounce 6 liter v8s especially from a stop. They rev slow, weigh a lot and shift early. Not my cup of tea anymore.

Riiiiiight. I always forget you're the greatest driver in the worlds greatest car.

What do you two not understand exactly? I'll explain it with less words and more pictures if that's what it takes.

What does an LT1 run? 14s? 02 WS6 what a 13.2? Forget real roads, I give these boats a look at my rear end in a straight line from start to finish. Accept it, you both have one dimensional cars that aren't very good at that one dimension without a second mortgage.


OMG HARDON UNPOSSIBAL YOU DONT HAVE ENOUGH LITERS STOP TROLLING OUR FEELINGS :handi:

Hehe case in point, and you'd think she'd be used to that kind of stuff.

All the electronic wizardry necessary to launch without a clutch pedal catches a lot of people with their pants down no doubt.

It's only cars that have an official "launch control" mode.

You can launch an STI hard as fuck, but it's all driver. There isn't a launch control.

Ah i see. Is it more or less brutal on the clutch compared to a good driver - what do you think?

I had a friend show me a few really solid launches in his stage something wrx (~450 he said) and it was damn impressive but literally the next time I saw him he had a badly slipping clutch which may have just been a long time coming. I got the impression you have to save it for when it counts with awd. Generally speaking tires are cheaper than clutches... The book lists my clutch as 7.5 hours and they are not lying, unless you've do them every day on a lift and it can't be any easier in awd configuration :/
