Go read this thread in the V2 forum: How many G's? (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/2009-cadillac-cts-v-performance-mods/255986-how-many-gs-can-your-v.html)
. . . and see if you're a contender for a T-shirt.

There has only been a minimal response so far in the V2 forum. Gotta be some V1's with some good numbers on the readout.

(Pss-t.... I have a good idea who will take top spot, but he probably won't post until the final days.

:pop2:

I've hit 1.04 on both sides, but reset it since then, and on winter tires, not likely to equal that any time soon :p

Hey-y-y-y!! My heart is still in the V1 forum. I still troll here.
How'd I know that so many guys from that other forum would be so snarky and prissy, with no sense of humor.

Geez Randy, I still contact the new owner of my old V1 about once a year, just to make sure he's treating it right.

I thought I vaguely remembered seeing 1.3s on R-comps, but it's been a while, and I've never taken any pictures.

Don't have pic to prove it, but I looked while making an errand this afternoon:

What I want to know is how do you guys keep stuff from rolling around in your trunk?

Yep... he's over in the other thread posting his pics and making room in his closet for his new T-shirt.
Will that be a size 4X Jim?

I think D3 is rigging it since they said they have cars in the shop with high numbers.

I wonder how high the V2 meter goes? Throw on my slicks and run Tail of the Dragon.


hmm...

Nice numbers

Force = Mass X Acceleration.
V1 = 3850 lbs
V2 = 4250 lbs.

The V2 guys with all that power and weight will always whup up on the V1 guys in the "G" wars.

I wish I had known you were running that course..what event was it? They've recently remodeled it and I've been wanting to go. Could have gotten some good pics as well. Are you local to mem?

V6TA-MI
05-22-12, 05:28 PM
No, I'm not local, I'm from Michigan. The event was run by: fbody-event.org . The main organizer has a V-2 four door. I shoulda posted here, my bad. would have loved to have some other V ouners show up.

The surface was awful rough, did a number on the tires. I hope they last the summer.

The organizers announced that they will be back in Memphis next year for a three day event. Road Couse, Auto Cross and Drag racing.

If anyone is interested I'll try to get some pictures and incar video up and post a link here.
