    My 2012 CTS V against a 2013 ZL1 Camaro in the 1/4 mile..

    Looking for some feedback; my stock 2012 CTS V in the ¼ mile against 2013 ZL1 Camaro. I am pretty good on the tree, what do you think my chances are for a noticeable win. I know we are pretty close in Hp. Good friend of mine thinks they are funny!

    Ya, even if they are both Autos even though the ZL1 has more hp it is so close that it's really a drivers race, may the best driver win. I've heard of people with stock Zl1's running only mid 12's and people with CTS-V autos running low 12's stock. Also the other way around too, I guess some of it depends on the DA and how well you hook up off the line.

    Fastest hole shot wins. It's that simple. No matter what, post a video when this meeting happens!

    Atco 11.25.12 - caddy 11.89.jpg

    Ran a stock ZL1 back in November at Atco.
    He was in the right lane - running stock tires with an Auto.
    He assured me the car was stock - based on the MPH (117) I would agree.

    I was in the left lane stock 2012 V only upgrade is Airaid CAI - stock tires are still on the car.
    The DA was negative 1200 that day.
    Good hook - I got the best ever 60' (1.82) on stock tires.

    Fastcpa - What tire pressure u run in them at the track.... Do u use Trac control off, stabilitrac competitive mode on, and touring suspension? Never seen a 1.xx 60' out of my car... I am a avid drag racer.... Go to the track quite often... My car is manual... I run 23 psi in tires, and stated above electronic modes.... Best 60' I have seen is 2.01 ... Shitty.... I bought some 18x12 wheels for the rear with some drag radials, hope to see some 1.7x 60' times then...

    DR's @ 18psi is the sweet spot...REALLY heated up, or they will want to spin.

    I was certainly surprised by the 1.82 60 ft.
    Trac Control and Stibilatrac off. Tire left @ 33PSI.
    Atco was hooking that day - went a 1.88 60' before that pass.
