Camaro kill... **video
Well, we didnt start school till NOON today because of state testing for other grades. So me and my friend decided to race. He has an 89 Camaro RS with a v6. I wasnt expecting to win, but I had him off the line and kept increasing my lead all the way to about 100mph, then we were about half way down the road and I started slow down, feeling proud of myself. :). Thought the v6 woulda owned me but I guess not, and the car and engine are in mint condition too.

EDIT: Got video, PM me with email addy for it, haters, haha.

You must be a good driver or something, because most V6 IROC's would easily eat any F22AX accord...

drucifer92 04-20-2005 09:30 PM

Didnt say IROC, said RS, most (if not all Irocs) are V-8s. Both cars are auto. Nik (my friend) said he was manual shifting and it was peaking for a few seconds before it shifted... I dont know, but its not bs. Camaros weigh so damn much.

im sick of all these bullshit stories going around lately. it aint happening dude. :thumbsdwn

drucifer92 04-20-2005 09:32 PM

Camaro doesnt mean fast dude. Sure a V8 Camaro is fast... but not the V6s. Its an underpowered car, ever tried racing a V6 non IROC? You could probly beat it. Dont tell me whats fucking bs, I really dont give a shit what you think because I know what happened :)

Do I need to go make a fucking video for you buddy? because I will.

Wow, people chill out. My bone stock Accord (when it was stock,) hung with a late model Camero. A couple mods would have smoked it.

v6 camaros and mustangs...arent that fast

and iroc's afaik are all v8s also. iroc was the z28 version of the generation camaro i believe

my friends 1986 (305) I-Heart-COCK Camaro is really sweet. Its jet black with sexy gold pinstriping.
When that car is clean it looks amazing.

At the 1/8 track he only went a 10.09 though. Granted there are more/less skilled drivers around, but 10.09 is not so fast to me.... :/


ps His cousin had a 1997 Z28 6spd bastard and it was unholly... :D

Although, I'd usually second that....I've beaten one myself. And you know I don't BS, because I call it on everyone else who is clearly bullshitting. I dont think it is possible tho with a stock f22. Half BS call on this one. BTW, manually shifting an auto is retarted. I've ran side by side comparison of shifting and not, and the car knows better than me, duh. lol. A tenth of second slower when shifting it yourself. Only thing I would do is leave it in D3, it allows the car not to engage 4th, gettin u up there quicker @ the end.

Meh, I guess i'll have to get a video camera some time next week and make a video.

You have to be kidding me? You seriously must not know about anything besides your accord. These cars are fucking SLOWWWWW ... They run like 16's at best.

nice kill :thumbsup:

501accord 04-21-2005 06:52 PM

nice race i belive you

CBsevenDX 04-21-2005 07:06 PM

I think what people are failing to realize is it was a 1989 V6.......thats not fast, and it doesn't impress anyone. Why doesn't anyone believe this dude?

wlfpck 04-22-2005 02:05 PM

I believe him. I saw one get smoked by a turboed civic. :bouncy:

BB6-SH 04-22-2005 03:12 PM

Good kill man and to everyone V6 camaro's aren't fast

Hybrid 04-22-2005 08:24 PM

I believe it is possible, correct me if I'm wrong, but the V6 Camaro's were just a 2.8 Litre in 1989. Not that much bigger than an Accord.

Yeah, v6 craparos and stangs especially autos are slower than crap. We took out a 94 auto v6 mustang, couldnt even get the tire to spin unless you turned really fast and gunned it.. and even then it would spin for a split second. 0-60, i could prolly run faster than those cars.

I raced a V6 Firebird once... I saw him trying to take on an Audi A6 or something (that thing SMOKED him). I figured he probably had an 8, since he was willing to try something that powerful. Still, he hung with me decently. I didn't shift the best, and the roads weren't great for it, but I DID win with little trouble. I found out he had a 6 afterwards (kinda killed the thrill...)

Those 6s aren't fast by any means. Chances are that an 89 probably has some lost power due to the age of the car as well. It's not entirely impossible.

From www.camarosource.ca : The V6 engine for RS Coupe models was the 173ci, 135hp (RPO LB8).

That means he had a whopping 10 horsepower on you, 300lbs of exrtra weight, and 3 more years of what was probably harder use (people generally abuse sports cars). The only thing he probably had on you was a bit more torque from the larger engine. Why does everyone see this as BS? I'd love to see someone do a LITTLE research before throwing up the BS flag!
