    SS Camaro thought I was funny.....

    Got the car dyno tuned yesterday (still waiting for my turbo to arrive) and on the way home I spotted a red LS1 SS Camaro up ahead on the freeway. I sped up a little to get a look and got beside him. He noticed me pacing him and laughed.

    I've seen that laugh before, you know, the kind where they are basicaly saying "dont waste my time." I made a motion forward to let him know to go but he kept shaking his head. Finalyy he gives in and he mouthed "You go first" Muwhahaha, no problem!

    I threw it in third around 70mph and took off. He did as well but I gained about 2 cars in third. Fourth gear we were pretty close but he wasnt gaining any ground. I let out around 130 and started to slow down. He flew by me WOT. Guess he didnt see my brakes?

    He of course, kept hauling ass and I didnt really want to continue doing 100+ down the highway since it was daytime still. In the end, I had a little laugh of my own over it.

    Btw, I'm posting here because war stories over at srtforums is a joke. Nothing but flamewars. Hope you uys dont mind.

    I love hearing stories of cocky LS1 owners getting their butts handed to em by 4 bangers. I beat an LS1 once but only from a stop and only until 105 mph so I can't brag too much but good kill!

    I just love it when they keep going wide open after the other car has let off. That is a definate sign of a sore loser.
    Good kill.

    LS1s are definitely fast cars. With a few mods those things will really fly. Congrats on the win.
    This car is making a poor man even poorer.

    Why did you get it dyno'd if you were waiting for the turbo, did you do something else to it and were curious?

    No prob posting here, we love hearing all kill stories. You are not the only one here with an SRT and post their kills.

    Sorry about the flame wars over on the other boards...that sucks when people can't get along.

    Congrats on the kill...very sweet!

    Had it dynoed to see what my A/F was and how much the stock turbo could make. I just installed the e-manage and a FMIC. The stock fuel system is pretty much maxed out and to make any more power I will need a bigger fuel pump or more fuel pressure.

    I get cheap dyno time and did my own tuning so it didnt cost much. That is one thing I love about this car over my WRX, alot easier to find a dyno!

    Yeah, they're all *ssholes and should be hated.

    I haven't been around for awhile . . . have you been to the track yet? What is or what do you expect your trap speed to be with your current set up?

    I really like SRT 4s, and I was considering getting one, but ultimately I like RWD better than FWD.
