    Dudes,

    Just mod it. I can't do anything about the weight of my 300 srt8 Curb weight is 4100. I can however add a brembo cross drilled rotors, hotchkis sways, KWs coilovers and the braided lines and a strut bar.
    Would you guys then be nice to the pig?
    I did mod all of the above except the KWs. They are next on the mod list.

    Re: sold the v for a 300c srt-8

    1) Congrats on the SRT-8 purchase. Great car and will serve you well.
    2) I'm only banned on the 300C forums and damned proud of it!
    3) Curtis, what the hell are you doing swimming with the sharks over here. Ballsy man, ballsy.
    4) I'm back in 2010 with a Chesrown executive car. Once the bugs are worked out completely.
    5) A souped up SRT-8 will still have a VERY hard time keeping up with the V's on a road course.

    On the fast portions of the track I was able to keep up with John's CTS-V and frankly most everything else. But once he hit the uphill essess at VIR I was toast. I didn't dare enter that portion of the track higher than 100mph. I believe John was taking that at 110-115 mph. My 300 didn't like the transitions at 100+ and there's no run-off room there, so no way I was going to try to push it there.

    Had a great talk with John regarding the new 2009 CTS-V and what he was able to see from their test at VIR. Sounds like a beefier rear diff is in place and hopefully the chassis is a little more sorted out this go 'round. If so I'm back in 2010 with a Chesrown executive car.

    Chris,

    I knew you would eventually show up.
    You know I have a sweet tooth for cadillacs. You caught me with my hand in the cookie jar, the 09 CTS-V.
    The guys over here are not THAT BAD, just loyal and I can't fault them for that.
    Now that you know I'm here, I would appreciate a tour!

    Congrats on the Srt. I looked at them before getting the V, but I walked away bored after driving a few. They do have some good power, but I'm pretty confident with my V if I encounter one.

    Lot's of good guys here that REALLY know their cars. Mod's are VERY cool and the "lifers" are a great bunch. You can see my "join" date, so I've been here a good long time. I've met about 8 guys off the forums and they're real car guys. Met 3 of them up at VIR last weekend and once you get past all the Caddy vs. Chrysler crap we're all just car nuts. There's just something about seeing these huge 4 door sedans ripping down the straightaways at VIR with Porches, BMW and Corvettes waving us by.

    Re: sold the v for a 300c srt-8

    Okay so lets see.... I still see the V being better then the Srt8 in everyway! Okay fine he rear ends go, but it depends on how you drive, you have to know when to flat step it and when not to. It is a stick shift car but it's not auto. You have more to do then shift. Any GM Sports car right now is better then Any srt model. Compare the z06 to the new viper. 650hp and the zo6 is a second behind with only 505 hp. Gm is much better. Rattles where? if you hit a pot hole in Brooklyn dam right the cars goin to rattle it's a car not a truck!. I raced the silver Srt8 300 and beat him, and others. Red Srt8 charger and a black srt 8 jeep I'm talking Stock v. stock. the V wins.

    Re: sold the v for a 300c srt-8

    Lets get past this because I'll have an 09 CTS-V.
    I'll take your word for it that the stock V will take a stock SRT8.
    I wish I could have confirmed this when I was stock.
    As you can see by my sig, I am not stock. The last CTS-V
    I came across only saw my side, then my tail lights.

    Re: sold the v for a 300c srt-8

    I could be wrong but I think you're in for a huge surprise in regards to reliability and dealership experience with the Chrysler. See how you feel in 6 months or so.. Too bad about the Caddy, though.. I've had nothing but great experiences in all my years.. My Wife has a 300C and the experience has been our worst ever... Could be isolated, however..

I can't say enough. Now granted, the SRT-8 (2008 model) has three years of innovations in it over the V but it is just such a better car. I would have to imagine that the 300 SRT-8 is the same way. Personally, I am done with Cadillac. My V went from love to dislike in a 2-3 month period as so many little things kept going wrong. It's in the dealer now for the third time in two months for another laundry list of stupid things.

    Good for you, enjoy it!!!

    You must be new to the internet. Take my advice - don't let people get to you like you do. Online, people say things to piss you off more often than in person. Get used to it and learn not to take it personally...

    Re: sold the v for a 300c srt-8

    Hey guys, long time no post, sorry. Been really busy and junk.....

    Any ways, WTF is this junk about a RATTLE, I have none and I remember a thread about this b4. Anyways I think it is like 1 out of 5 are plagued by something like this at higher road speeds. That would suck!!!

    My car is tight!!!

    Just wanted to add that.

    Oh, and still get the sweeeet reactions when the beast decides to roar, and even when it doesn't by the few that know what it is!!!

    SRTs are a dime a dozen, but hey, sometimes I wish I didn't have my V. Like when I went at 1-4 MPH to see Christmas lights with my 3yo son at Christmas in the park. Stickshift sucked then.

    I had my CTSV for 2 years / 36,600 Still had the same diff, no whines. No warranty work was ever required for the car, just a TSB issue. Which is part of the reason I got another Cadillac, albeit a slushbox.
    But hey anytime any SRT8 drivers want to compare performance, handling, luxury, or features just stop by your local Cadillac dealership and check out the STS-V. One of the local 300 SRT8 drivers already has mine after he got to see my big black Cadi outrun him and was curious about the car. Plus with deals like this out there...

    I bought the 300c srt8 used with 11,000 miles on it from my cadillac dealer.
    The guys in the service dept told me it was faster than their CTS-V. Oh, this was after it was purchased. I questioned this as I love the V too. I was surprised as I thought the V was lighter and had more horsepower. I have not driven one yet. Anyway, I take the care to Chrysler for maint covered issues. The only problems I have had so far are
    1.) Rear Drivers side window regulator
    2.) Drivers side control arm was worn at 25,000 miles and replaced.

    No other issues and I keep up on the TSB notices.

    For any mods that I do, I give it to the cadillac service dept as I like the way they treat me and the car. They also give me a great price on all service.
