Multiplayer optimal tunes for the Camaro SS:

The Camaro SS has a very low top speed weighting of 45%, which means that the rank increase from default to MAX + PRO is only comprised 45% of top speed. The other 55% belongs to nitro, acceleration, and handling. Alongside the Camaro SS' huge speed increase from top speed and its extreme top speed limit, this allows the Camaro SS to reach very high speeds at low ranks. The minimum tuning to keep the Camaro SS competitive is 0400 0000, which places it in direct competition with the Shelby Cobra 427. The maximum tuning to keep the Camaro SS competitive would be 0505 5050, which places it in direct competition with the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage. From here, nitro and acceleration upgrades can be used up to around 50 ranks higher. After that point, the Camaro SS starts to become slightly inferior to a handful of cars.

To obtain the highest possible speed at any given rank, it is recommended that top speed is upgraded to MAX + PRO before any nitro/acceleration/handling upgrades are applied. If upgrading to a low rank, it is recommended that MAX top speed upgrades are done before PRO top speed upgrades up until MAX level 4. This is because MAX upgrades increase the Tuning Kit speed bonus while PRO upgrades don't. However, MAX level 5 decreases the Tuning Kit bonus slightly, so it is better to finish all of the PRO top speed upgrades before doing the last MAX top speed upgrade.

  1. Cobra dominated bracket: There are a handful of tunes that are designed to allow the Camaro SS to rival the Shelby Cobra 427 in Multiplayer. (Currently, there is only one tune displayed)
    • DO NOT UPGRADE BELOW 1278. Below this rank, the Camaro SS cannot compete against the Cobra.
    • MAX 0400 + PRO 0000 = 1278
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 232.5 mph (374.2 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 250.9 mph (403.8 km/h).
      • The equivalent Cobra tune is MAX 0503 + PRO 5050 = 1285. Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 242.6 mph (390.5 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 254.4 mph (409.4 km/h).
      • Cobra vs Camaro SS - The Cobra has worse nitro efficiency, better acceleration, equally bad drifting, better handling, and a slightly higher total top speed.
      • The Camaro SS cannot consistently beat the Cobra at the same rank when using this tune; the Camaro SS is slightly slower than the Cobra at this rank, and it also has an inferior acceleration. On the other hand, 1234 and 1245 Cobras are very commonly matched against the 1278 Camaro SS, and the Camaro SS does have a 50/50 chance of beating these specific Cobras on long two/three-lap races, such as those on Azure Coast or Area 51. The Camaro SS is slightly faster than these low-ranked Cobras, and the Camaro SS' nitro efficiency can become more advantageous in longer races.
  2. Sagaris dominated bracket: The Sagaris acts as an upgrade to the Shelby Cobra 427 in Multiplayer, with similar upsides and downsides. However, the Sagaris' rank is unfavorable, making the Cobra a better choice for Multiplayer matches against the Camaro SS.
    • MAX 0400 + PRO 2020 = 1312
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 241.9 mph (389.3 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 260.3 mph (418.9 km/h).
    • MAX 0400 + PRO 3030 = 1334
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 249.4 mph (401.4 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 269.8 mph (434.0 km/h). This tune is heavily similar to the 0300 5050 build, but lower by 5 rank points and exactly 1 km/h slower.
    • MAX 0400 + PRO 4040 = 1359
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 258.8 mph (416.5 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 278.1 mph (447.4 km/h).
    • MAX 0400 + PRO 5050 = 1390
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 270 mph (434.6 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 288.4 mph (464.2 km/h).
      • The equivalent Sagaris tune is MAX 0500 + PRO 5050 = 1390. Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 260.4 mph (419.1 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 270.7 mph (435.6 km/h).
      • Sagaris vs Camaro SS - The Sagaris has worse nitro efficiency, better acceleration, equally bad drifting, better handling, and a much lower total top speed.
      • The Camaro SS can generally win against the Sagaris at rank 1390. However, if the Camaro SS crashes into a wall, either dying or not dying, the Sagaris has a very good chance of winning the race. The Sagaris' superior acceleration allows it to more efficiently recover from crashes, to gain an edge at the starting line (allowing it to steal nitro bottles), and to knock down the Camaro SS at the beginning of the race. An airborne collision with a Sagaris can also be devastating for the Camaro SS, especially when spinning. The Sagaris isn't as close in speed to the Camaro SS at this rank when compared to a 1285 Cobra, however, the Camaro SS becomes harder to drive with more speed added, so the Sagaris' acceleration statistic is more highly emphasized and much more crucial.
  3. Camaro SS dominated bracket: At these ranks, the Camaro SS is mainly matched against itself. Some McLaren MP4/8s, TVR Sagaris' and other faster-accelerating cars can appear, but all have much lower total top speeds.
    • DO NOT UPGRADE BETWEEN 1390 AND 1450. Matchmaking between 1390 and 1450 can allow for the two tunes to avoid each other frequently. However, in-between tunes will only get matched against the far superior 1450 tune, so it is recommended to simply go to 1450 in order to compete against that tune.
    • MAX 0500 + PRO 5050 = 1450
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 287.9 mph (463.3 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 304.8 mph (490.6 km/h).
      • All higher-ranked tunes have only slightly better rates of acceleration and total top speeds. Therefore, this tune is a nice "base" to keep the Camaro SS at.
      • This tune allows the Camaro SS to reach the second highest speed in the game by rank 1450, only topped by the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition. This tune is possibly the best tune for the Camaro SS, alongside the following two tunes (which still stay within the 1450-1500 rank range).
      • Crashing and bumping into walls, as well as poorly executed turns, can greatly increase lap times. Spinning off upwards facing ramps is not recommended. Also, barrel rolling is highly not recommended, especially not in an upwards direction. Generally, it is better to flat spin than to barrel roll, and usually in a downwards direction. Spinning is not recommended while jumping off ramps while other vehicles are present. Large right-angled corners are recommended to be taken with a V pattern; Handle close to the inner wall, Drift wide towards the outer wall, Handle into the outer wall of the right-angle, in two distinct lines of movement. Hairpin corners are recommended to be taken with a large horseshoe pattern; Handle wide, Drift inwards, Nitro directly forwards, Drift inwards, Repeat, Handle inwards. Extra Tanks are recommended so that level-3 nitro can be used frequently.
      • Also, note that it is possible for the Camaro SS to hit the ceiling when doing several jumps, such as in the caves of Patagonia and Iceland, and on the boats of San Diego Harbor. It is also possible for the Camaro SS to "over-jump", such as in Area 51 and Tokyo (ex. Tokyo Reverse). For these reasons, it is recommended to find alternate routes than usual (or to slow down/flat spin), in order to not crash. Also, routes with long straights, especially at the beginnings of races, are very beneficial for the Camaro SS. For example, in San Diego Harbor Reverse, it is better to first go left, rather than right. Some maps, like Dubai, Sector 8, and some forms of Tenerife, are nearly impossible to navigate through very efficiently. These maps should be avoided unless targeting inexperienced Camaro SS'.
    • MAX 0500 + PRO 5055 = 1487
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 289.6 mph (466 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 306.5 mph (493.3 km/h).
      • This tune mainly targets the 1450 Camaro SS tune. Its superior acceleration and total top speed can give it a minuscule edge. However, the Camaro SS, being skill based, will not be very heavily improved by this addition of 37 ranks, if the user can't race near-perfectly.
      • This tune uses exhaust upgrades to increase acceleration and nitro at the same time. However, neither benefits from an increased Tuning Kit bonus.
      • This tune and onward will make the driver eligible for the Camaro SS' Mastery Challenge 10, which offers 200A8 tokens full 200 as a reward.
    • MAX 0501 + PRO 5055 = 1498
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 290.1 mph (466.9 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 307.1 mph (494.3 km/h).
      • This tune mainly targets the 1450 Camaro SS tune. Its superior acceleration and total top speed can give it a minuscule edge. However, the Camaro SS, being skill based, will not be very heavily improved by this addition of 48 ranks, if the user can't race near-perfectly.
      • This tune uses exhaust upgrades to increase acceleration and nitro at the same time. However, neither benefits from an increased Tuning Kit bonus. Its single MAX nitro upgrade benefits from an increased Tuning Kit bonus.
    • MAX 2502 + PRO 5051 = 1500
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 289.4 mph (465.8 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 307 mph (494 km/h).
      • This tune mainly targets the 1450 Camaro SS tune. Its superior acceleration and total top speed can give it a minuscule edge. However, the Camaro SS, being skill based, will not be very heavily improved by this addition of 50 ranks, if the user can't race near-perfectly.
      • This tune benefits from an increased Tuning Kit bonus, however, the ratio of acceleration to nitro is more in favor of acceleration. This tune allows the Camaro SS to travel faster than the 1450 and 1487 tunes while giving the Camaro SS a slightly faster acceleration. This acceleration can be crucial to give the Camaro SS an extremely tiny edge against other Camaro SS. An early lead can become a large lead. This tune sometimes encounters BMW 3.0 CSL Hommages; it can consistently beat them in 2-lap races (ex. Sector 8, Venice and Dubai), but driving has to be near-perfect.
      • This tune is very slightly slower than the 1498 tune. However, the acceleration is also slightly higher.
  4. Hommage (+Vulcan, MP4-25, and SIN R1) dominated bracket:
    • MAX 0505 + PRO 5050 = 1562
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 293.2 mph (471.9 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 311.1 mph (500.7 km/h).
        • The equivalent Hommage tune is MAX 0500 + PRO 5055 = 1562. Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 291 mph (468.3 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 310.5 mph (499.4 km/h).
          • The equivalent Vulcan tune is MAX 0500 + PRO 5050 = 1562. Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total real top speed of 282.7 mph (455 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total real top speed of 296.6 mph (477.4 km/h).
          • The equivalent R1 tune is MAX 0500 + PRO 5050 = 1561. Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 277.9 mph (447.2 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 289.4 mph (465.8 km/h).
          • The equivalent MP4-25 tune is PRO 10,0,10,0 = 1590.1. Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 278.1 mph (447.6 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 289.9 mph (466.6 km/h). (Note: This car has exceptional acceleration)
      • This tune is more focused on fighting Hommages. However, the performance increase from 1450 to 1562 is not huge, while the rank increase is. Generally, the Camaro SS is slightly inferior to the Hommage at a rank this high.
      • Hommage vs Camaro SS - The Hommage has worse nitro efficiency, slightly better acceleration, slightly better drifting, similar handling, and a slightly lower total top speed.
    • MAX 0505 + PRO 5555 = 1636
      • Without a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 296.6 mph (477.3 km/h). With a Tuning Kit, this tune provides a total top speed of 314.5 mph (506.1 km/h).
      • This tune gives the Camaro SS' maximum total top speed without handling or acceleration MAX upgrades. Overall, this tune is not the best, due to how high the final rank is. However, the Camaro SS is still faster than a lot of other cars at this rank.
