Your time is good, as you did not break anything.
Cadillac, IIRC, stated 0-60 in 4.6secs and 1/4 in 13.1secs, but no one on the board has posted a time this fast.
Here are some times for stock Vs:

... and now to humor you, a V will run you about $3,000 in the quarter mile, here is the breakdown:
1) tow from the strip=$300
2) new rear and half-shafts plus labor=$2,500
3) three-day car rental=$150

13.6 @ 109 (2.4 60' :o) with mild mods (cat back, cai, rt cats).

I'm done with the drags. That beats the living snot out of the car. Twisties for me from now on.

Do you think you could describe your launch technique?

Right foot - quick downward movement until it stops. Leave it in that position.

Left foot - quick upward movement until it hits your left elbow.

Then quick stearing adjustments as you fight for control.

Damn Silver! You forgot this.....walk back down the track to pick up the rear end pieces before the next racers launch!
