: Onstar gives Hennessey a ring after pulling .99 G launching a 700 HP CTS-V

Just last week service Onstar stopped its first car jacking by disabling a 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe only 16 minutes after it was taken thanks to their Stolen Vehicle Slowdown system. Well this time the little blue button was still on alert, except that there was no cause for concern. The American tuning house Hennessey was testing their 700 HP Cadillac CTS-V at the drag strip when a hard launch measuring as much as .99 G of longitudinal force triggered one of Onstar’s safety parameters and caused an operator to contact the driver mid run down the 1320. Luckily no one was actually in need of assistance at the time, but this is just more reassuring proof that Onstar has you covered.

I think Car and Driver or one of the big mags was running a new Malibu around a skidpad and the same thing happened. Onstar had thought they crashed.:bigroll:

Well aware of that. Just one of the reasons that I have no interest in joining any branch of the Armed Forces. Uncle Sam knows enough as it is without having full rights to my arse. No thank you.
