took my cars to track tonight and guess what was there? Two 09 CTS-Vs. One was a manual and the other a auto..they ran 12.3@121 (manual) and 12.4@120 (auto) when I was watching. I also got to run one in my bmw 335--I told them I have a V on order and they obliged with a race--that sucker is fast!!!! here is my 335 getting spanked by the V 12.4@120 to my 12.7@110 (we actually crossed the finish line at same time, but he was in the process of BLOWIN by me)


ok--i have to figure out why int wont let me upload--says "missing security token" but I will tomorrow-its late. One of the Vs was Blue Diamond Tricoat-SHARP!

Cool- I'm looking forward to the videos.

My contact at GM has been telling me that they've tried everything they can think of to try and break a rear diff in the 09 cars, and so far have been spectacularly unsuccessful. Looks like he wasn't kidding. :D

actually Urbs-I think he was a professsional-maybe even from Motor Trend. It was the Caddy performance team who had the track-before gates opened to public- I just got there early-they were doing repeated runs. He actually got a 1.95 60 ft in this video run! Its just that mine was a 1.7 due to awd in the BMW.

120+ MPH is sub-12 second trap. That is definitely encouraging.

If those trap speeds are accurate this car should get into the 11's EASILY. Drivers must have spun horribly off the line, or these cars have ridiculous amounts of Torque Management.

For a car with this power to weigh ratio, and this much torque, that's a decent 60'. Still think the car has gobs of Torque Management. I take it that was the auto you ran?

What track was this at? Conditions?

Those are very good trap speeds, much better than all the mags 116 and 117. Also more indicative of a cars power than E.T. Here is a list of Corvette forums top ten list for C6 Corvettes(Showroom stock right down to air filters and tires). There isn't one that hit 120mph. Notice 7 of the top 10 are LS3's.

11.71 @ 119.94 - AndrewZPSU - 08 M6 - (2590)

Obviously you know nothing about drag racing. The 07 treed the 09 but the 09 caught up at the finishline and by doing that was going faster at the finish.

Need to find an old set 16" wheels that will fit on the back so you can mount a set of Hoosier Quick Time Pro "Street Slicks". Probably cut .5 off the time with better 60's.

Hopefully the front wheels will fit the back as I think the rears were 19. Not much advantage in 18 drag radial over PS2. So don't expect much in improvement in the ET department.

Even adjusting 60 foot times to determine change in ET a non-torque managed V1 us within tenths of the V2. Trap speed is another arguement. The V2 should have much better ET with 120 mph traps. Definitely some torque management in the first couple of gears.

You posted recently that you got to drive a V2 and now you get to drag one on camera no less and almost handed the V2 its ass with a lightly modded 6 cylinder. I think I saw the V driver nodding off. Great launch! Is 1.7 sec standard for a xi? PS2s? Auto or manual?
Reason I ask is my wife is planning on a 335xi or 535xi auto. Amazing what opening up the turbo outlet and a tune will do.

I have absolutely no doubt the 335 AWD blew the V off the line. I test drove a friend's last week and the acceleration from a dead stop on lane merges, particularly when rounding corners, was unreal. Like riding on a rail. I have to admit now that AWD does have it's place.

yes--it was the auto---track was good. 72 degrees at the time---the car (v) hat been hot lapping so maybe it was running hot

I would say a 1.8 launch is standard...I currently have the second fastest ET, and fastest trap..for that model. But yes..with a tune and pipes-that AWD is almost impossible to beat light to light. still can't wait to get the V tho--different animal altogether...

You don't happen to know what the 60' time of the manual was on the 12.3 run do you?

Your 335 runs sweet. Made the "V" look tired. It must be a fun car at stoplight runs.
The Caddies had mean top ends. Thanks for the vid.

That vid makes me want to get a 335. So it's a 335ix auto(step) coupe with relatively minor mods and street tires? You must have basically been ahead of the V all the way to ~100. That's the kind of driving that's important to me. Seems like the V is just begging for AWD.

yes-that car has a tune and downpipes. Street tires (goodyear eagle F-1 all seasons). I wa ahead until the finish line--so over 100 mph--then the caddy went by in a BLUR!!! keep in mind--had that been from a 20 roll he would have killed me start to finish.

But yes--in daily driving, at lights--the 335xi is almost unbeatable-seriously. It just launches like nobody's business and doesn't really let up. It is fun..thats for sure. But I still have the caddy on order..:lildevil:

Do those killer starts with the xi auto require some serious brake torquing? What happens if you just take your foot off the brake from a stop and nail the gas? Like a 'normal' launch... Much slower? Lag?

I guess the V is gonna win from just about any kind of roll if traction is good.

I'm wondering if AWD would actually be boring... Can you get any wheel spin at all with the xi on a dry surface?

Edit: I keep saying ix instead of xi... sorry. ;)

its cool..all good questions. If you read about the car in Motor Trend or any number of mags..they often already describe the N54 engine as one of the best ever built. There is virtually no turbo lag in the car--it truly feels like an unleashed v-8..maybe because the turbos serve 3 cylinders each--I don't know..but there is NO lag!

If you just nail it from a stop-it rips out pretty damn good every time. If you want it to really rip--like at the track--you brake torque it to 2500 and then rip it.

On dry pavement-the most you ever get is a chirp..

WAT
09-14-08, 09:35 PM
Cool. I guess a 2500 rpm brake torque is easy enough and not too abusive.

When you say chirp, that's from a dead stop, right? I imagine you'd never get any spin on any shift with the auto? That might become frustrating if you're in the mood to make a bit of noise and act crazy. What happens when you nail it in 1st making a low speed turn?

What does a stock xi auto run 0-60 and the quarter in roughly? I'm guessing pretty close to my current car, which is an '01 Cobra (320 hp). It sucks that BMW is cracking down on mods/tunes, because I don't think stock 335 performance is quite what I'm looking for, and warranty is important.

Your right. I don't know too much about drag racing. I wouldn't say nothing. Every "man" knows a little something about drag racing.
I understand one was going faster. Don't they stop the clock when the nose crosses? Was there a .3 second penalty for treeing?
Treed = Red Light?
I'm more of an apex man. Going straight would be fun if I had a jet car. I may have to change my diff fluid and try it(after V Day II).
AWD is great. I went for a couple laps in a guys souped up Mitsu. It was fun in the corners. Like push your face into the window type fun.

manyfacturer and different mags peg it stock at 13.5 in the 1/4...0-60 high fours.

if you want the fun of tossing the back end around and squeeling the tires..you want a rwd car for sure--

at the time I got this car by trading in an 07 Tahoe--here in Michigan we get crap weather for 6 months and I got tired of walking past my 300C, SRT8, and STS-V (at the time)--wanted a perfromance car that could be driven year round.
