    Re: GTO or CTSV?

    I readily beat a lightly modded and stickered 04 GTO at gateway. The 05 and new GTOs run much better than the 04s. It would be a drivers race with an 05+.
    We have 3.73s to their 3.42s. But we are handicapped by out rear diff and IRS. GTOs have a solid rear axle i believe, which would make them easier to launch

    '05 GTOs got the LS2 and better brakes.
    Don't know if the V is the seriously better looking car. More modern definitely, but the GTO has it's own look.

    The GTO is great if you like the 10 year old Catera design.

    I like the Catera body. I just hate the fact that the Catera body is on the Catera. :P

    I think you've all got it wrong... the GTO looks more like a freakin' Celica to me... LOL... from the back to the front, b/c that's the way I'm viewing 'em

    Opel = Holden = Catera = GTO

    I saw a Catera last night and thought it was a GTO at first.... for real.

    I wonder, would this still hold true with an LS2 powered V? Or would it be neck and neck?

    Re: GTO or CTSV?

    It would be a drivers race, DON'T MAGAZINE RACE! LS6 VS LS2 VS LS2. It is very close, your advantage is gearing.
    Now is his GTO a M6 or Auto. That will make a huge difference.

    Even in the Magazine a .10 is nothing, DA, weather and track prep would all play into that.
    I know you are on a Cadillac board, but you may want to ask this question over at LS1tech. Where there are Vs and GTO and vast wide knowledge of LSX powered vehicles.

    Let me caviate by saying that you are just going to get a less biased answer over there, because there are Vettes, F-bodies, GTOs, V's etc.
