    Other than the interior and the glass, I'd say that it looks like a stock CTS-V.

    Wow that's awesome! If you had the molds, you could reproduce for us and fund your racing!

    My point is that I am past that stage and there isn't much need for a sleeper look on a race car...

    Funny story though, when I came into the pits at Thunderbolt, the pit guys couldn't figure out why I wanted temps for a stock car. Until I got closer and they saw the cage and started laughing.

    So, at this point, I think you need to make it your life's goal to get the CTS-V under 3000 lbs without a driver. Whaddya say?

    Currently 3366 empty.

    I still have to add some aero, so a wing and splitter are in the cards.

    Grand-Am GS class min weight was 3250# in 2004 before it was lowered to 3150# so it is possible

    Its the last few pounds that are always the hardest or cost the most...

    Wow that's pretty light for such a large car. Have you gone to a fuel cell or are you using the stock tank?

    The doors shave the most off and i loved the weight reduction.

    U may have to dial in the traction control spark reduction to keep ur tires from slippin all the time

    I got a new rear ratio of 3.42 to help my wheel spin
