    Talking SRT-8 Vs. CTS-V (the definitive thread)

    There have been more threads about this subject than any other I can remember on the Cadillac boards.
    The same people post the same statements every time. No one is convinced of anything. So, for once and for all:

    Somerandomnewmember: CTS-V or SRT-8? Which is better/faster/cooler/reliable?
    Katshot: I seen an SRT run 12's!
    Sandy: Bah. Both are too small. <starts off on some rant about the good ol' days>
    Rolex: SRT-8 Jeep is the best. I like the abominations.
    RobertCTS: Does either have a spoiler? I vote spoiler.
    Katshot: No V can run 12's!
    Deuuuce: SRT-8! (I joined this forum just to say that)
    CVP33: I kept blowing diffs out of the V, so decided it was better to get a car that shifted for me.
    wildwhl: Oh, CVP33... <swoons> I love it when you talk about your rearend...
    thebigjimsho: I learned my lesson with the Taurus. Now I want to shift! CTS-V.
    StealthV: SRT can't beat a modded V
    Sandy: <finishes reminiscing about the land yachts of yore>
    Florian: I'll take all you all in my V! <foams at the mouth>
    Blackout: <disagrees with everything said above and claims whatever he happens to be driving this month is the best>
    Katshot: 12's, I say! 12's!
    mccombie_5: I prefer my Phaeton, but my wife has been looking to import one or the other...
    elwesso: Imports? The Q45 is god.
    Playdrv4me: BMW
    Jesda: <some witty remark meaning he concurs with both>
    DaveSmed: Yeah, I miss my e30.
    Katshot: 12's!!!!!
    Stoneage_Caddy: This belongs in versus, not the lounge. <moves thread>
    gothicaleigh:





    I know I didn't get to everyone, but I'm sure you could pick any member of the forum and be able to quote their response on the subject by now.

    Love you guys.

    Here's another one of those stock, slow ass 300C SRT-8's turning another disappointing 12.67 @ 110+mph. Damn. I sure miss my CTS-V with CAI, headers, X-Pipe and tuned PCM turning 13.3's. Not that was fast.
