Anybody ever run any "Cammed" New Camaro's?

I got this guy in my town with a Cammed, bolt-on Camaro whose dying to put a L in my W/L column. Reving at my house, and revs at my work...lol, all in fun. I know these LS3 cars are pretty stout with a cam, and pretty sure I don't have a chance in hell. I may have him on weight by a few pounds but not much. I do know he put down 470/425 on the ground from friend, compared to my 420/409, again dyno numbers are just numbers. Hes all motor w/o any gearing or anything like that.

Just curious if it would be a waste of my time and clutch to run this guy.
I'm not afraid to run anybody but some races are just pointless and hard on your car for no reason. You gotta pick your battles.

Maybe someone has some vids that I can't seem to find.

LS2 engine tests stage one and two - cams and heads - GM High Tech Performance

^$1000 (cam + tune) for an additional 94 bhp w/ a stage 1. What, 7-9 grand plus for FI (FI + built tranny/clutch, stronger rear end, FI ground cam, headers, etc) for an additional 2-300 bhp? Best bang for your buck hands down is header, cam, and tune. If deep pockets are available, sure, FI all the way.

@OP, dead even at the strip (non bracketed fun runs), but only ever against 1 which was a stock SS convertible. IMO, at the strip it's gonna be a drivers race for sure, and on the freeway that particular Camaro would probably win. I don't think power to weight is gonna play enough of a role when your already moving.

These cars are geared different and third is a big power gear, make the race longer so your gearing can catch you might have a chance. What MODS do you have? 5th Gen Camaro SS are strong to 135, they have more rear tire and a stronger stock IRS/diff and clutch. Good Luck.
