I'm usually not one for bagged rides, but I must say, this Camaro looks freakin' sweet!!! It still looks mean and fast. Guess when I hear the term bagged, I think of those stupid Latino rides all pimped out with the bling bling. Those and donks........WTF!!!!!????

I only posted that pic so you could see it was a Camaro better, The last pic looks like a black dot to me when I am not wearing my glasses. LOL!

Well proofs in the pudding plenty of pics and plenty of people there to see. He has time slips and it was at Impala Nationals this year, way too many witness's to be a lie, A lot of whom, are personal friends. You do know an L99 is just and LS3 with Active Fuel management. It is still a "Factory rated" 400 HP car. I'll post a link to the Impala site with pic including his time slips, as soon as their site is up (server must be down). I think he took it down the track thirteen times.

400hp isnt crap when the car weighs 3800 lbs. if he ran an 12.2 he cleary rented the worlds fastest stock camaro. SS camaros cant even run low 12's. It takes nitrous or a supercharger to go that quick.

It is an SS Camaro, The L99 is the Automatic engine. LS3 is the 6 Speed manual engine. There were other camaro's there that ran similar times. Over on the Camaro Board there are several with mid 12's with a bone stock L99 A6 SS (they require a scanned time slip to post in their official times thread). With bolt ons and tune that number drops fast. I will admit the guy driving is probably the best amatuer I know. He Bracket races either his 502 ramjet 94 impala SS or his 396 Stroker 1995 Impala SS at least once a month in the summer. His opinion on the Camaro is it is nice, but he would buy a used Z06 before he would buy a camaro.

I his defense most magazines are putting it in the low 13 sec. range, But they also put the impala SS in 94-96 in the low 15 range, and I have seen stock after stock 12 year old impala with 100K plus run 14 thru 14.5 all day long. Not really sure why that is but I never take the magazines for gospel. But I know for a fact that is a Bone stock, 2010 Camaro ss L99 A6 with factory tires a 250 to 300 # man Driving it, and at most he would have taken out a spare. One of his first runs was over 13's but he ran that car something like 16 times down the track. If I was bored and the Impala Site was working I could average his times. But it is capable of low 12's stock see pics.

It has become tradition at ISSCA nationals to have Rental Car Drags, but usually it is stock impalas or a Buick Lacrosse, this year that guy decided to fly instead of Drive his impala since it was in Dallas and he is from Long Island. He thought it would be fun to shake up the Rental Drags.

That looks like utter ****. I actually liked it better factory.

Great work put into it but... ewwww...

If I saw that in person, I don't know if I could resist the urge to rip the body panels off... they're just so... out there when it's dropped. I dunno... Just wanna... kick it or something.

It would be sick at a lil lower than stock ride height.

Maybe the track times are adjusted for the altitude and air temp?? Still NO WAY IN HELL that car will run a 12.23 in stock trim.

Tell you what..go post those times on a camaro forum and see if they call the BS flag!
