COPO Camaro CSR2, tune and shift pattern

You drive the COPO Camaro in the Duality Cup of season 97. This car is totally awesome, only three gears, acceleration like a bunny on drugs and spinning wheels.

COPO specifications

In 1969 Fred Gibb started the COPO Camaro programm. He used Chevrolets in-house special order system to build a car for drag racing. He equipped the regular Camaro Z28 with the ZL-1 427 racing engine, creating the perfect car for the drag strip.

At SEMA 2018, Chevrolet is presenting a COPO to mark the 50th anniversary of the drag racer. As always, no performance data is available for the COPO. A pity actually, but the owners of these vehicles tuned and needs. Furthermore, Chevrolet will only build 69 COPO Camaro 50th Anniversary Special Edition examples. This is the exact number of original models built with the 427 ZL1 engine. To sum up, a pretty rare car.

The CSR2 COPOs

The standard version of the Camaro can fit 128 Fusion parts. The 5 purple star version can fit 135 Fusions, so far nothing special. The yellow star COPO should run 7.216s.

The 50th Anniversary 2019 Chevrolet COPO can fit 135 Fusion parts and should run 6.982s.

Can I use Stage 6 Parts from the regular COPO for the 50th Anniversary Model?

Yes, Stage 6 Parts fit on both COPO variants. So there is a big chance you already have some of them.

Can I buy COPOs from the dealership, to strip them?

No, unfortunately not. You only can win the COPOs by opening gold crates. So it’s hard to get upgrade parts for this car.
