Word has it that General Motors may be out to finally counter the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet and Dodge Challenger Drag Pak. Until now, Ford and Dodge enjoyed nearly unhindered dominance of the turn-key dragster market, but LSXTV is reporting that GM is planning to unveil its answer at this year's SEMA show in November in the form of a Stock Eliminator Chevrolet Camaro. Details are markedly scarce at the moment, but that didn't stop LSXTV from hypothesizing about exactly what the quarter-mile Bowtie could bring to the table.

Chances are the Camaro will come with a serialized nameplate but won't be street-legal, and it will boast a track-specific suspension, brake and chassis package. Even so, as LSXTV points out, the Cobra Jet is feathery light compared to the big-bodied Camaro, so odds are the machine will need more horsepower to get it down the straight ahead of the Ford. That may mean a factory LS7 will be behind the headlights. Either way, we can't wait to see the machine in the flesh.

      I've been highly surprised that GM Performance Parts never offered "Track Pack" kits for the Camaro from the get-go. I'd also be interested if they brought out a suspension and braking package (think autocross) for the V6, too.

      A stripped, lightweight LS7 Camaro would be awesome. I'd drive it on the street anyway. It'd be fairly easy to turn one into a carver rather than a straight line bruiser.

        It'll probably be an LSA, UNLESS GM squeezes out an extra 45hp from the LS7 to compete with the 550hp Cobra Jet.

        Does your best friend's mom have a webcam and internet? Is she hot? That would explain getting $7487 a month for sitting in front of her home computer for a couple hours. I didn't know spamming robots had best friends moms that do pr0n.

      Yeah, there needs to be a set drag series where just the factory drag cars from GM, Ford, and Dodge can compete. That's some drag racing I can get behind. I couldn't care less about Top Fuel, Funny Car, or any of that other Pro crap....

      Better have a solid rear axle... I have the same IRS setup on my G8 and even with a lot of money and parts thrown at it, it's not as durable as the solid rear axle. I like seeing the competition, even if I don't like the Camaro.
