I spotted that article yesterday, and I couldn't believe they think the SRT-8's are faster than the V. :eek: Not from what I've seen........... :tisk:
So you've seen an SRT-8 hit its top speed? Those things have gotten close to 170 in tests. i don't think anyone here has taken a stock V over 165. I only got to 163.

I tend to think more in terms of 0-60, than top speed. But even regarding top speed, I've read that the 163 top end on the V comes from the computer. Without that computer imposed limit, the V should go a good deal faster. I can't find the particular article, but one said the car approached 180 with the limiter "off". I know that sounds dreamy, but I'll look around for the article. If I find it, I'll post it.

You notice the picture they posted was of a Redline...

Enough said :thumbsup:
Is that redline, or the new infrared? Looks a little different than redline to me......

Woulda, coulda, shoulda...We go 163, the SRT-8s do close to 170. And since this article is regarding top speed ONLY, we're 10th.

How many bone stock CTS-V's have made it into the 12's?


The SRT-8 is faster 0-60, 1/4 and top speed. Throw some curves in there and the V has it. That is what the V was built for. places like the ring.

:yeah: :highfive: Besides, the V is better looking. :want:

Although..... there is an SRT-8 in my area. The owner dumped that big ugly buck-tooth egg-crate grill, and installed a hot looking wire-mesh type "Bentley" style grill. Oooh, that thing looks nice! Really makes the car.

If we ever get a chance to line up, I'll do my best.
