Maggied GTO kills a 2010 SS Camaro

On the way to work at 6:30am when the sun was barely up and there was no traffic on 84E (after the bridge).

We were checking each other out (I can see him, but he can't see me since I'm 5% tint).

There was no warning and he hammers it and passes me by a half a bus length.

I quickly drop down to 4th at 75MPH and hammer it. At first my pull was a little slow until I hit 85MPH. Then it was pulling hard.

At the end of 4th I had over a bus length on him.

He tried a few more times, but I reassure him that it wasn't luck or a fluke.

Based on his custom plates "2010ROD" I Googled him and am pretty sure that this is the guy:

Stock to stock a GTO can still take a 5th gen Camaro SS.

It might come down to a driver's race.

Here are the list of advantages that the GTO has over the Camaro:

Weight
.Cd
Lighter wheel/tire package (rotational mass)

How about gearing?

Actually stock for stock its a drivers race. Hp to weight ratio is about the same. Unless its an auto SS with the L99 then the GTO should be able to beat it.

Well since I said stock to stock then the GTO would have the edge over the auto SS. If its tuned then its not exactly stock now is it!? Of course anything can be modded but I wasnt talking about a modded auto SS to a stock GTO.

There was nothing false about my original statement. Call it a driver's race if you want, but stock for stock a GTO can take a 5th gen Camaro.
