Getting a haircut today and this guy that was in my mustang club comes in. We talk about the old days and he tells me that he's ditched his 98 GT for a 2013 6er. I was like da** man you've really stepped your game up! He goes on telling me his recent kills and then he mentions that he put the smack down on a LS1 Trans Am. He said that his car is auto as well as the TA and he said he beat him by at least 2 car lengths. They went from a dead stop to 110. I'm calling BS on this one but didn't want to say anything. What do you guys think?

it's bull****, go on ls1tech and youll see that 9 times out of 10 a stock ls1 fbody beats stock 11+ gt's!!!
....Ok now back to reality. I can see it happening. while prolly unlikely. Like blue's saying driver error can account for a lot. hell the ta guy might have tried manually shifting it and hit the limiter. Lots of things could happen even in auto cars.
As a former auto LS1 F-body owner, I can't imagine a realistic scenario that would allow for this outcome. Any buffoonery that the TA driver could have gotten himself into with that pretty much foolproof car would have been ironed out well before 110 mph, which would be past the 1/4 mile mark.
1987 Buick Grand National, stockish. Still a GM troll.
2002 Camaro Z28, 2002-2013, another victim of drunk driving. RIP Mulletmobile.
I guess I need a new screen name. Six Appeal? Black Air? I dunno.
Who knows. There's a solid 7 tenths and 5 mph difference between those two cars stock. Like BB said, a bad launch can really cut into that gap...but like Tommy said by the time they hit those speeds mentioned the TA should be in another time zone. Guy is probably just getting way ahead of himself. Maybe he jumped that TA and by the time the guy in the TA realized a race was there and finished spinning... maybe the TA just lost
We all know that any half way running LS1 should put a serious hurting on a 3.7. But that doesn't mean its always going to happen, obviously.
I'm not gonna say it didn't happen, but under 'normal conditions', ie no traction/driver issues, it would be a slaughter for a stock 3.7, much less an auto car. I have, as far as I know, the second quickest stock time of the 3.7s, 2.73s or 3.31. That was a 13.78 @ 102.
In other words, there was a serious error on the behalf of the car/driver, or the truff was stretched just a little lol.
