    Plus, that was a Fly By...a Road Test gives us some before and after numbers. I know you guys have access to a G-Tech or something...you don't have to go to the drag strip.

    While it's true, we don't have to go to a race track to test them, we also try to limit full throttle runs to a minimum, especially on the street. We have dyno numbers available for many applications if needed and several of our customers have posted their own videos from the races already displaying their results.

    While this video is one of the "older" ones, it has never been posted on the forums. We have also posted similar videos for the CTS-V and XLR-V as well as a compilation video from last year.

    Now I've seen everything...what do you mean you want to limit full throttle aceleration on the streets??... I'm not talking about holding street drags, but I, and probably most of us hit full throttle quite often fo at least a 0-60 run or 30-80 or 90 getting on the freeway. But, I think I know what you mean...you just want to be responsible adults, uh..yeah..thats why we all bought a 469 hp automobile...I feel ya..

    But, seriously, some comparo 0-60 runs would be nice.

    I can certainly relate to what you're trying to say. If I was an individual filming some video footage for everyone it's one thing, but while I represent the company, I need to try to be as responsible as possible as my actions also reflect on the company. Coming back on foot because I got the car impounded for a multiple infraction ticket wouldn't go over very well with management...

    I'll see what I can get for you.
