Here is a race vs one of my customers 416cid LS3 Camaro SS.

I ran 11.145 @ 128mph to his 11.94 @ 119mph.


It was no match!

Very cool vid! You don't see too many 1/4 mile passes with a camera shot like that. It goes to show you what a difference 9 mph makes in the 1/4. :drool:

Thats a great video, even got a nice plug in there for advertising! Hopefully the groceries weren't in there at the time or the eggs might have been broken:D

It is hard to believe this was just a 0.8 sec difference. Is it the wide angle of the camera distorting things? I mean that V was just GONE!

A 9 or 10 mph difference spread out over a 1/4 mile is a butt whooping!

Plus there is the reaction time. I cut a .100 light to his .545.

That was the best vid for helping people understand. I told one guy that a tenth in the 1/4 is about two/three car lengths...and he laughed, then I showed him this...HA HA HA

Sweet Vid!!

Great Vid. I am looking to pick up a Go pro setup. Anything special to watch for when choosing......not to get to far off topic. Thanks

I don't think he could even see your tail lights anymore! You left him.

Nice run!

The brutality... Wow! How did this race come about? A customer comes in and says, "my LS3 will walk your Caddy"/vice versa, or what? You are in Houston. I've got to see your vehicle. Where is your shop?
