hi guys..

l wonder, what is the top speed of firebird or trans am (LT1).

l have a 97 firebird formula, and l didnt have chance to try my car's speed.


also, yesterday, on the street, like 15 seconds, l raced with a 2003 mustang GT. we were both waiting at the light, early in the morning.. l didnt even think about racing. l wasnt in the mood. while were waiting, he was accelerating his car and looking at me and smiling.a he ws mostly 20 year old. l thought he wanted to race with me. and l thought why not, and at the green light, we both moved, suddenly l passed him like, a car length.and like 15 seconds, we went like that. it wasnt a high way, and it wasnt a tight, busy road. it was empty, and l didnt event look at my speedometer. it happened so qucikly, l had to stop, because, l didnt want cops to take my drivers lcience. right before l stop accelerating, he was like 2,5 car length behind me.

and l wanna ask you guys, mustangGT? or firebird formula/trans am?


thank you..

hi guys..

Ok here I had you.

a he ws mostly 20 year old. l thought he wanted to race with me. and l thought why not, and at the green light, we both moved, suddenly l passed him like, a car length.and like 15 seconds, we went like that.

And there's where you lost me...the first mispelling I kind of gathered that the other driver is probably 20 years old...but I have absolutely no idea whats goin on past the word like.

thnx.

This must be the 3rd or 4th thread you have made asking the same question.

Not sure why you are so stuck on top speed either....doesn't matter much as long as you get to it fast.
And yes, the LT1 car should beat the Mustang.

Top speed of an LT1 camaro 6-speed is 157 mph...so you can bet on it being somewhere around there...what did the 15 seconds have to do with anything?

yeah thats what I didn't get, I understood the passing him....but the 15 seconds...thats what really lost me.

Should be 155mph. It's where the speedo stops, and I know plenty of folks who have been up there in an F-Body.

My friends dad had a '95 LT1 Camaro Z28. They took the Camaro to Vegas, the family did... the four of them crusing in the Camaro. Everybody passed out while his dad drove, he woke up to the sound of the motor humming.

From the back seat he saw the speedo pegged... dad just cruising along. Family of four... 155mph.

hi mr.luos..

pls. let me ask whatever l want.

you said that, l asked this question 3 times before and why l am keep asking you do not understand. Man, l couldnt get exact answer when l asked and thats why l asked here. cuz l am crious. l wanna know how fast my car is. l used to race many times but in my country and sometimes l got in trouble, and l do not wanna get in trouble in america. thats why l cannot, drive fast and test my car's speed.
you guys are always racing, and l thought maybe you would know and let me know. and thnx for your all answers.

About mustang;
yesterday l was on yahoo messenger and in a room people were talking about mustangs and l started to talk about firebirds.and they said that, firebirds were a piece of shit. and they cannot be as fast as mustangs. my wife is working for ford motor company as a dealer operation manager. but she told me, firebirds are faster than mustangs. lt1 can beat 2003 mustang GTs maybe even 2004, but not 2005 she said. she said ls1 engine might beat 2005. yesterday l heard that those guys were talking about this, and l wanted to ask you guys. cuz l beated a mustang too.

by the way l said, 15 second. man l wasnt looking at my watch. it was atoo short and l just guess. but keep loughing, maybe you will look more handsome to your girls..

thank you!!!

All depends on the year of the GT. The pre 99s you should beat, against the 99-04 would be a good race, and the '05 GT will walk a stock LT1, given equal drivers, etc.

If you use Google I'm sure you could find the top speed of your car, I'd guess it's in the 150s.

Ok...

Mr Luos >>> 03-04 COBRA > LS1 = 05 GT(drivers race) > 99-04 GT = LT1(drivers race) > 94-98 GT > sloth > tree > rice

edit: screw top speed... you are retarded if you just want a car to go 150mph in. Any car can do that given the right gearing and that they aren't shaped like a barn.

I still don't get the 15 second thing...and i'm not sure if I got dissed or not back there...but i'll give it another shot...so is 15 seconds how long you were racing?

You are more than welcome to ask whatever you want. Just as I am allowed to ask you why you have asked a couple times. You cleared it up for me, so we are good there.

Still not sure why you need to know the top speed so badly? If you aren't going to be going that fast, why does it matter.
Either way, it should be right around 155 MPH if your gears are stock.
Most races don't go to that speed though. Hell, most barely make it to 100 MPH. That is why I am more concerned with acceleration than top speed.

15 second? someone couldnt understand..

man, l raced with a guy and it was just like 15 seconds l said. it was too short, cuz l stopped. cuz l didnt wanna give my licence to a cop.

l hope now you got it..


mr.luos. l just wanted to know, becouse, everone says these cars are too strong and fast. and l have never had a car strong like this.just curious man..

thats it..no other reasions..


thnx..

It's not cool to have mustang guys walk all over you pretending their 4.6 can somehow out-muscle a 5.7. Even if he won't race him he'd prolly like to have alittle reassurance when he says:

"STFU my camaro will walk all over your displacement challenged horse."

nothing wrong with that.

BTW I have a few beefs with the comparrison... I think the LS1 is faster than an 05 GT, it's pretty close, but most stock 05 GTs are putting down 255ish RWHP. LS1s easily dyno in the low 300's stock. Don't be confused by the fact that they're both factory rated at 300.

And as for Luos >>>>> Cobra... not so much.

Luos has a bad ass ride, no denying that. He can probably walk any cobra before 03 considered it's stock or slightly modded, but stock 03-04s are dynoing 374... I saw it on an episode of HPTV and I can link you if you'd like. The cobra might be heavier, I'm not even really sure about that, but they're pretty much neck and neck. With some small "do it yourself" upgrades and less than 600 bucks you can turn that into a 427 dyno that would crush most n/a F-bodies.

actually I know you didn't request it, but here it is anyway:

And I bet you my next dyno shows 500 RWHP. :evillol:

There's no such thing as the quarter mile on the streets. You race to 115 mph. Stay there, then let me race up to 120 mph just so I can win. :evillol: Bwahahahha!! It would be my most glorious win ever!

Mr. Luos

I don't do much street racing.
Mainly because I would have to go to an organized event to really end up with any competition. Way too much risk for me to attend those.

I do enjoy the power on the streets. It is fun. I rarely end up in good races though.
