Thought I would share some info on this Amazing car I have had a chance to tune, Drive :) and work on.

The car is owned by a close friend of mime who we work very close with Extreme turbo Systems. We have a pretty cool relationship since he is a parts builder and I am a installer tuner.

We just got the car tuned and finished 1.5 weeks ago and had a chance to take it down to the Airstrip Attack in CA.

Was one of the biggest rushes I have had in a long time. Took till the middle of Sunday till I was feeling good with the car. We did 6 runs over 200mph with a passenger every time on Sunday.

2nd run of the day on Sat the front splitter and finder liners ripped out of the car at 190+mph which was pretty intense.

We have a ton of gopro video coming but I figured these would be a good start.

One of my favorite clips is this speedo shot I did with the go pro hanging from the front window.

Boring Dyno video :)


A flyby video from the view of the CTS-V wish he would have not let off for those few sec. Sorry about the FB.

Yes very impressive ride.

Took her to our local track trying to better my 60-130 Time . Was trying to stay under the no cage radar but they booted me for a [email protected] in the 1/8 on a week launch. Still only 3.7 60-130 on that run at about 1100hp.

Yes but the V is nice to drive.

The GTR reminds me of a fast street bike. Its ment to be raced so if you are driving it you are wanting to find a place to rip on it and at my age and trouble I have had with the law in the past makes me a very nervous law breaker. So its almost not fun to drive this car around because the only reason to drive it is to rip on it. If that makes since.

The CTS-V on the other hand I want to just keep driving smooth quite and rips enough when I need it to.

Sweet. I enjoyed reading that and watching the vids.

But isnt saying your car has 1233 rwhp like saying you have a 15.02" dick. After 1200 who really cares. lol

Got to take her out on the road course only ran it at 800-900hp on the stock R888 tires .what an amazing car. Turns in like my CTS-V does and exits like my EVO. Did 176 on the front straight via the GPS and ran a 1:17 at PIR which is fast for a street car. Best my EVO has done is 1:26 at 500hp.

Tried getting some 1/4 mi passes in. Need to work on the ECU for the launch once I get the dialed 8s should be easy. Not bad for true street car with AC and all. No cage made for a one pass wonder. I had 3 baby passes trying to get the lauch better and just ran out of day so I I went for it. Wa a 1.78 60ft. The car has the tire for a sub 1.5.
