I was ready for him I had my left foot on the brake and right foot on the gas because I figured he would do it. So as soon as he hit it I did too. I just took off a few hundredths of a second after him.

i cant compare personally as the stock SS isnt much competition but I would say its 100% a drivers race... if you can drive your rewarded if you cant... youll blame the car and look for another one without fixing problem. First mod any person should invest in is the driver.

Yep, that is right. The Camaro SS 6speed is the TR6060 with the 2.97:1 1st gear (if I remember correctly).
The 5.0's 6speed manual has a 3.66:1 1st, and that is a massive advantage.

For the Camaro with 2.97:1 1st, he would have to get 4.10:1 rear gears just to equal to the total gear ratio of a Coyote with 3.31:1 base stock rear gears.
