mk7 gti, duh.
Beat a Camaro SS today.

Car: 2017 or 2018 Camaro SS 8sp v 2016 Mk7 gti 6sp

Camaro mods: Exhaust, the rest unknown.
My current mods: CAI, exhaust, CTS DP, tuned by stratified (91 oct), short throw shifter, is20 stock.

Had a really enjoyable race. It was a lot closer than I had thought it would of been.

The first race, we both floor it I was in 3rd and he was probably in 4th gear. He gets a slight lead, but once I shifted from 3rd to 4th, I got him by my rear door. He had a slight lead from the instant torque, but I reeled him in quickly in forth.
The second race, we floor it again, I this time I had the advantage on him. I kept in front the entire time. About only by a car length. They were some really good races. It was also a good measurement to see where the car is currently at right now.

Cool dude too, hopefully I get to race another SS in the near future.

Seriously, I’m shocked i thought an SS would pull on you for sure!
Yeah, me too. I was kind of shocked honestly. The SS is actually one of my favorite muscle cars.
I also know that they're really fast after getting a renter in a 2020 SS, they're absolute beasts. Definitely great feeling car all around as well. If I were to get a muscle car, I would definitely get a SS or a ZL1.

The SS is like 450hp... How did you pull that on a Stg1 91oct tune that sits at around 310hp? I know they're heavier but you can have a lighter weight spec that sits around 3300lbs... That's a lot more HP moving it than extra weight. Nice pull though. Would have liked to see the video!

Oh and for reference, my sister's boyfriend has a 2017 camaro SS. The 450ish hp one so I know how hard they pull. I'm still stock so I'm not sure how fast stg1 truly feels in this car but I had a K04 Mk6 which put me around 350-360ish hp and 400ish torque. That was really fast but even questionable if I could have taken him down. This makes me think Stg1 mk7 is faster or at least equal to a K04 Mk6 gti? That's pretty damn impressive from just a tune and no extra hardware.

no, K04’s do not make 350-360HP/400TQ. They make like 320-330HP/340-350TQ
