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.
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'
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.
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.
