    New 2016 Camaro Blew Right By Me, Got Stopped by Michigan State Police

    So yesterday I was going to a friend's party at MSU in East Landfill (that's East Lansing for all you non-Michigan folks lol), and a new 2016 Camaro V6 (had vertical LEDs up front, I believe that's the V6 model), probably a CTF car, BLOWS by me. I mean blows by me as in she was doing 105 easy. I was doing around 85 or so, and she passed me by like I was stopped. I didn't have time to take a picture of the car because of how dark it was and how fast she was going, but right as she passed by, I saw a MSP trooper parked in the middle part of the highway, and of course, the lights came on and he went after the Camaro. I took a really low quality picture of it when it stopped:



    It's a "cool story bro" thing, but I just wanted to share it. Looking back, the Camaro probably saved me a speeding ticket because I had a bad case of get-there-itis yesterday lol.

    Waze plus radar detector. If paying attention while driving and not out all alone, it's hard to get caught.

    I forgot all about the 2.0T. Thanks lol! So I guess it might have been that then.

    It was past LDT IIRC, a little past where it forks off to I-96 to head to Detroit. I was picking up a friend.

    Was that on I-96?

    A couple months ago I was just about to get off at my exit heading home at night on my Beemer...long story short I ended up coming up on a MSP Interceptor Utility pretty quick (he said he was going 74 and I was at 95 or so). I hit the brakes and slowed down to about 75 between his rear bumper and his front bumper...pulled over with a warning

    Aren't most new GM v-6s governored to about 105 or so?
    My last few GM 2500 pickups would only do 97 then the converter unlocks and
    the tranny freewheels....................

    EDIT.....The 12+ 3.6 8th gen Impalas do 112 and the cop 9C1s do 140 !
    Still looking for the Camaro figure.

    It was on I-69.

    Well, a warning is better than a ticket lol.

    Nah, I can take my ATS to ~155 or so IIRC.

    Hmmm..................My dad has a new ATS too. No idea what the top end is.
    When I go to Vegas I always rented a DTS. They are good for 133 !
    The Caddy site sez some were faster if they had the speed rated tires.

    The Town Cars, Stang GTs, v-8 T-birds were only good for 100.

    Reminds me of a first and only-time poster a while back complaining about how his new Silverado cut out at 115 or so, and it was dangerous because he was trying to pass and wouldn't go faster...
