Do we have a sticky of 2006 1/4 mile times? I tried searching...

Would like to know if anyone with a 2006 has gone faster than the below time?

Tire: Stock P245 Goodyear Run Flats
Mileage: 510 miles on car
Gas: Pump...almost full tank
Temp: 65F
Humidity: 28%
Wind: 12mph
Alt: 420ft.

13.40 @ 107.45 w/ 2.13 60' time

By the way, I have 8 time slips sitting in front of me with NO BROKEN REAR AXLE, CV JOINT OR DRIVE SHAFT!

for the times compared to 04-05, it looks like you have more trap speeds

Aren't the stock 04-05s putting down 13.5s? What's the fastest 04-05 time?

i think most are trapping in 104~105.

how is that good??? am I from a different planet? The Cadillac website says:
0-60 mph = 4.6
1/4 Mile= 13.1

Plus, I usually thought that manufacturers would post slower times than normal. SO how is 13.4 and high 13's any good for the V?

Welcome to the real world - Traction. The V is not a drag car, launching a 4000lb car, dealing with wheel hop, is not an easy thing. Cadillac's numbers are speculation.......

Now bolt on a set of drag radials, say a prayer for the diff, I'd bet the numbers would be different . . . . .

How can cadillac numbers be speculation? They have had to test the car. There is no way they would just guess on a number that would be false misrepresentation.

You're kidding, right? Manufacturers post slower times for cars that they marketing as rocket sleds? To the contrary, they get several perfectly prepared cars, under the best conditions, on their prepped test track, with their professional drivers, and make a zillion passes until they know that they have the best result they can achieve. Then, they round the number down. :histeric: (That's assuming that the times where not the result of a computer program.)

This isn't the 1970s when automakers sandbagged their horsepower numbers to fool the insurance industry.

In the real world, 13.4 on the first trip to the track, with limited runs, is more than decent.

Have you ever ran a 1/4 mile track? There were C6 Vettes (2 to be exact), running each other time after time and their best was 12.8 and worst of 13.1...use that to gauge your opinion since they have the same motor but weigh about 700lbs less with better suspension.

Nah...I'm leasing it..but I have a better idea..I will give the car to my 18 year old brother and get myself a corvette..0-60 in 4.1 and top speed of 186 will cure me !

Jeez....the V is plenty fast. When 1/4 mile times for a 4000 pound 6-speed car are affected by engine tune, launch techniques, tires, driver skills, shift points, track conditions, weather, altitude, and other variables, the results will vary widely. What's disappointing about that?

Don't get me wrong...Im not bashing on you in any way...I guess you had a pretty good run as far as what I am hearing now...I just thought the V was faster than that...Guess I was wrong..Welcome to the real world.

Plus, your V is not broken in yet with only 510 miles on it..Should be faster once you hit at least 10k miles and everything breaks in properly.

How fast do you think this car should go in a straight line, considering it is designed for something completely different? Don't pay any attention to the marketing numbers from Cadillac....if your car isn't fast enough for you, buy another one, or mod the crap out of yours like the rest of us are doing:thumbsup:

People have a short memory. Any car that is capable of running 13's in street trim is a damn fast car. Its not a supercar but it is fast. These are the kind of times that big block camaros and chevelles pulled and they weighed less.!
Low13's stock in a 4000+ lb car. Pretty dam respectable and you can crank the stereo and A/C on the backstretch!:D

Vendetta-V, if I remember correctly the curb weight of about 150 lbs. less in the GTO vs. V. Of course that is '05 vs. '05. The LS2 is lighter than the LS6...

Never had it weighed but I am over 200 lbs. lighter than stock currently. I ran stock with 5K miles on 400 wear rating BFG with high 2.0 60' times. Traction with these tires are so bad they even chirped on the 3-4 shift! DR and a some weight reduction I have seen '05 GTOs running mid 12s.

Several auto mags (can't remember which) had the '04 -'05 V running the 1/4 mile in 4.8 seconds. And I didn't just read it in one magazine, but several. I'll try to dig at least one of the articles out.

damn that's a hell of a 1/4mi time :)
Some magazines have gotten the v down to 13.1 1/4 and 4.7sec 0-60 which is extremely close to the advertised time

ROGER THAT KID! I do not know how they ran those factory times and the 04-05 claimed 13.3 in a mag! On TOP OF ALL OF THIS...the LS6 is supposed to run better than the LS2!? I really do not understand any of it but I do know that if a track was anywhere near me, I would go instantly just to see. The bottom line is this, you need an edge because these cars aren't fast enough! I will say that for the car itself, the handling, the comfort, the cool look etc. etc. they are excellent! I used to be a real speed freak...well...still kinda am but I can live with not as fast for this particular car! Until of course, when I really need to go faster, I'll do what I can to get 100-150hp without any headaches which is just about impossible so, who knows if I'll ever do it! OUT

Thats good news..

If you don't know... The 2006 "V" has 1-1/2 thick halfshafts vs the 2004/2005 1-1/25 halfshafts. Also reported, the 2006 Differential has suposedly been deemed more reliable than the 2004/2005 differential, i have not seen proof on paper, besides a part number change, as to what they did. Also, the 2006 got a slight cradle mount redesign.

I'm willing to blow 3 rears for 100hp more, if that means anything! :) About the rears, The rears have only blown from driver torture! I have 12k on mine and it is fine, never changed, never fixed and I drive hard but I do not do smoke shows or hard leaves (not the tree leaves) don't BANG second or third but shift fine and quick. The rear is weak but any rear blows from abuse!

Yeah, that comment was intended to underline that a 2006 was driven over the edge without being towed home...IOT give folks back some faith in V rears.
