    1/4 Mile ET & Modifications List

    Based on some interest that several members have expressed, I'm going to start and maintain a list of 2009+ CTS-V's 1/4 mile stats and modifications. Hopefully I can get this stickied.

    The updated list will always be in this first post (I'll update the linked .jpg offline), and will be sorted by 1/4 mile ET:



    If you want to make a submission, please include the following:

    1) An image of your Timeslip
    2) The Density Altitude (DA). If you don't know it give me the track name, date and time of your run and I'll look it up
    3) The Letter abbreviations of all the mods that were on your car for that run from the list above (if I missed any MAJOR ones, let me know).

    Here's a sample:

    DA - 906 Feet
    Mods - A-B-C-I-L



    I'll do my best to keep the list updated real-time, but at times it might take me a day or so to get your info incorporated into the list. This format always seemed to be the most popular on other sites I'm a member of.
    EVIL_C5, EVIL_C5, HeavyH20 and 3 others like this.

    I think this could be very good. It's nice to have you and Gary Wells gathering data for us.

    How about also adding the make and model of the car you raced and any mods you know of, as a reference.

    In the left lane was a 2009 GTR. Mods were exhaust mild to wild switch and K&N intake filters. I was in the right lane.

    I was able to muster an 11.2 at 124 two months ago on limited mods and with limited traction from stock tires. My mods are very simple 9.5 lower and 2.55 upper pulley, center section 3" exhaust, Aircleaner
    ,and a tune. Thats it. I know the car is easily a 10 second car with slicks.

    If you could follow the format, it will make it MUCH easier for me to populate the data. I assumed based on the name of your .pdf file that this run happened on 7/20/2010. I also know that you typically run at GLD, so I assumed that's where it was and I know on Tuesday's (7-20-2010) they run at night so I took the DA from 8PM.

    BTW, the numbers on that timeslip (particularly the last 1/8th mile....compared to my and vetkila's intervals at least) don't seem to jive. Do you have any backup slips from that day showing similar numbers or something close. Granted there's only a few data points so far, but the last 1/8th mile (or the 1/8th ET) seems off to me. I'll put it on the list and I guess as more times are posted we'll see if the data indicates that timeslip might have been an anomaly (timing error).
    CTSV12 and CTSV12 like this.

    Re: 1/4 Mile ET & Modifications List

    Hmmm this looks like fun.
    Dont have a full 1/4 run available, but we had a customer recently run his D3 built vehicle at the track in Irwindale. Conditions for this run were about 92 degrees, with a fairly soft launch.

    Re: 1/4 Mile ET & Modifications List

    Dr. D,

    The list was really meant for 1/4 mile timeslips, not 1/8th mile, but I'll see if I can figure a way to work it in. Maybe I'll break it into two sections since I know not everybody has access to a full 1/4 mile track.

    Let me kick it around for a few.

    Also, can you give me a username to use for the entry?

    Re: 1/4 Mile ET & Modifications List

    I realize that, but just kind of figured all the important stuff happens in the 1/8th anyways... Well the info is there for comparison purposes, do with it what you may

    Re: 1/4 Mile ET & Modifications List

    I modified the list so as to also encourage the 1/8 mile guys.

    D3,

    Can you give me a name for the list?

    Well JAMES

    Whereas I'm quite confident that you are more than familiar with the D3 build up on this advertised V perhaps you might be good enough to share some information with us "slower" V owners out there.

    Do you know with certainty what octane was being used on this particular V on this particular posted run?

    What specific rear tire and rim were being used on this V on this run?

    I can't imagine only one run was made with this car! Therefore, would you kindly share with us the time slips from the other runs made or at least ask the owner to present them to you so you may post them.


    You make mention that the pics of this V going down the track "looks like fun." That being the case did you drive this particular V at the track or have you ever driven any other V2 down the track(either modded or not)?

    Since I'm sure you know exactly what D3 mods were made to this car please share with the rest of us forum members the itemized cost of the D3 parts that were on this particular V that you are posting the time slip and pics for.

    Thank you
