    Famoso Test and Tune 6-28-13 2 Great kills

    Took the CTS V out for the Famoso test and tune tonight. Weather was HOT, 101 degrees when I left the house at 8 pm. I let the car sit for 2 hours, made my first pass at 10 PM , DA was 3506', temp was 98.1 degrees at 10pm! I looked for a good race in the lanes and found a new 2014 Shelby GT500. Nice guy, we talked, we decided to have a friendly match race. Here is the result:Both cars on stock street tires, I have an Airaid CAI and a Tune, GT500 pure stock. His advantage 662 hp vs 556 hp and weight 3850 vs 4150 for the CTS V...so I was giving up 106 hp and 300 lbs.

    Me (CTS V) RT: .002, 60' 2.228, 1/8th mile 8.368 @ 91.66, 1/4 mile 12.637 @ 116.23
    GT500 RT: .304, 60' 2.238, 1/8th mile 8.407 @ 89.94, 1/4 mile 12.696 @ 116.59
    CTS V winning margin .3618 (3 lengths)

    So I let the car sit another hour and at 11pm I looked for another fun race....and I found a new 2014 Camaro ZL1 6-speed manual, bone stock, 580hp and 4150 lbs. Result ( my car still a little hot), temp 90 degrees, DA 3005'

    CTS V : 60' 2.202, 1/8th mile 8.423 @ 90.58, 1/4 mile 12.706 @ 115.61

    ZL1 : 60' 2.257, 1/8th mile 8.601 @ 87.13, 1/4 mile 13.043 @ 111.21

    Another win for the CTS V.

    That's awsome... I thought the newer 662hp/631trq 2013/1014 Shelby GT500's ran 11.6's in the 1/4 mile.. Good for you! Just an Airaid and Tune, no exhaust? Sounds like you have a good tune.. WoW... If it ain't broken don't fix it.

    Thanks guys. I know the times aren't great but it was terrible DA and very hot, but it was a fun night....nobody was turning great times...although there was a McClaren that ran 10.80 @132 . Hey Arca500, pm your cell number and the next time you're in Bakersfield we can meet for lunch, I'm retired and I was born in Seattle.

    Here is a video my friend shot with his phone. My friend owns a GT500. Notice the scoreboard flash the time in my lane .36 seconds before the GT500 side. Enjoy!

    Good win!

    Nice read on the tree for the holeshot. Sounded like a Mustang crowd from the collective groan when the win light came on.

    Yeah, that was my friend Travis filming and he owns a 2011 GT500....the guy Mike he speaks to owns a Corvette (used to have a GTO, then a GT500)... I think he says to Travis watch the old guy drive (and shift)... thus the "shut up Mike" comment. Kuddos to Travis for putting up the video.

    I own both cars and I went from the stock goodyears on the shelby to the michelin supersports, made a world of difference. Just saying.

    SuperSports wouldn't have helped the Shelby react any quicker. Great cut at the light Trainman (or is this really Bob, as in Glidden ). No-lift all the way?

    Absolutely , I never lift, full power shifts every time.

    ----------

    Here's a video inside my SRT-10 Ram, no lift power shifting, the button at the first is my LineLoc.
