well how do the times compare to the V times at VIR?That's what ticks me off. C&D hasn't tested a V at VIR yet but here's the results...



1) Ford GT - 3:00.7
2) Z06 - 3:01.1
3) Viper SRT10 - 3:01.6
4) Lotus Elise - 3:09.2
5) Corvette - 3:09.3
6) Cayman S - 3:09.5
7) BMW M6 - 3:10.0
8) Shelby GT500 - 3:11.0*
9) 350Z Track - 3:12.5
10) Lancer Evo MR - 3:13.5
11) Charger SRT8 - 3:18.2
12) Mazda RX-8 - 3:19.0
13) Cobalt SS - 3:20.6
14) Mustang GT - 3:20.9
15) VW GTI - 3:25.1
16) Civic Si - 3:26.5
17) Mazda MX-5 - 3:29.3


It's only a couple seconds behind a Charger SRT-8 and 7 seconds behind an Evo. That may sound like a lot, but at the 4.2 mile VIR, that's not much. Add a modded SS and a not so good V driver, and that SS may be causing the V fits.

I dont know how it would do on a road course (don't really care either), but the SS will get massacred in a straight line.

I don't talk smack about anything that comes from the General. Though, adding a few non-general aftermarket parts, can sometimes sway me.

My C32 AMG with race rubber ran 3:09 @ VIR. The V should be pretty close in stock form.
