Im surprised people still race on that road. Nice Kill, but keep it safe. That road gets dangerous when your making power.

Watching the vid, the CTS-V drops back changing to 3rd so could've been a mis-shift. Nice win for the RC-F regardless.

Maybe, but i would Think they would have Mentioned that in the Video or at the very least had a Re-Run (can you mis-shift an automatic)!

that seems about right, the car is a mid 12s 1/4 mile around 115. Also what you read in a mag and see on the street is ALWAYS different, he could have a 2 more ppl in the car, it could be heat soaked, could have 500 pounds of sand in the trunk for a sandbox he is building in the AM.

1/4 Mile (sec @ mph): 12.2 @ 117.5

I screwed around with one that had an exhaust and I was thinking I was going to get raped but we just stayed by each other,

I dunno about speed, but just looks at this car. Lol, I don't think I would buy it with 1,200 hp and Ring times in 5 minute range. Its awful.

Exhaust won't do much to an FI car. Downpipes, tune, etc. will.

Simple flash tune it won't even be close. CTS-V would walk any RCF. But the CTS-V is pretty ugly IMO

Should be a close race. The CTS-V has been tested at 12.4 - 12.5 seconds and around 115 mph trap speed. It weighs around 4400 lbs. It used to be about even with the E60 M5. The CTS-V is manual so he is losing ground during shifts versus the flawless automatic shifts of the RC-F.
