    STS-V and XLR-V are launchable by humans in the stated GM times or even better than the stated times. I predict CTS-V will slightly *beat* 3.9s with the right conditions, transmission and a good driver.

    There were plenty of good drivers that tried. You are correct on everything in alighment and they probaby ran the car in death valley on a 40 degree night, but I yet to see the 12.8 1/4 GM said they got. I also question how many rear ends GM went through to get that number. GM has also not said if those numbers are for both the auto and the manual. I am willing to bet it is the 100lb lighter MN6. I am anxiously awaiting the rag times since they are more real world.

    100lb means nothing with that much torque, it's gonna be all about grip. I'd bet the car would be quicker with another 200lb in the trunk.

    The blower E55 wagon was/is quicker than the sedan because of the extra weight over the drive wheels.

    Good point Scott. My V1 was quicker from a dig with 100+ lbs in the trunk.
