Cadillac STS-V Series Forum Discussion, Went to the dragstrip last night... in Cadillac V-Series Forums; and had a lot of fun.

The weather conditions kept me from getting good traction. Got to the track at 6pm with temps in the upper 50's and humidity around 90%. As the night progressed, the temps fell to around 50 with a touch of fog and a layer of dew on everything....typical South Mississippi.
I got 8 runs. Here's my best of everything:
60 ft 2.0455
330 ft 5.5933
1/8 th ET 8.5589
1/8 th MPH 83.23
1000 ET 11.0811
1/4 ET 13.2022
1/4 MPH 108.64
The car just couldn't hook up. I was spinning on and off all the way past the 1/8th. I drove the car w/traction on, w/traction off, in comp mode, and shifting manually. The times were all within 0.1686 seconds.
My car is stock except for exhaust and W4M tune. I was hoping for a 12.99, but the weather and a 280 lbs driver kept that out of reach. Maybe I need slicks. That sounds like a fun purchase. I'm also waiting on the spectre intake which will help a bit also.
All in all it was a fun time. Oh yeah, I ran against an 07 CTS-V and beat him! He ran a 13.5822 to my 13.3107. I tried to talk to him after the race but i couldn't find him.
