    Raced a CTS..V?

    I was just bombing down Maple Valley Highway, was in a mood cause I had been have a *discussion* with my wife...
    Nice day, had the tops off and the radio up, just gritting my teeth and minding my business when I notice this gold colored Caddy CTS pacing me sorta and then slowly accelerating by me. There's about 4 traffic lights we go through, and we catch the reds ( you know how it is, get one, get em all) and for the first couple of lights I am still in my own little groove, Static-X on the stereo, just grooving and getting up to 40 ( posted zone). Then at the third light I see him zoom by like it's a race. I am chuckling to myself cause I am thinking that the aggressive tone of my exhaust makes the other driver feel like I am taunting him...
    I am seriously considering tossing it into neutral an ripping 4-5k a couple of times when the light goes green..
    I accelerate a touch more aggressively, not to race but merely to show him I wasn't before. As soon as my door hits his front bumper I can see his hood lift and he starts to come by. I tilt my head an look at him thinking Whatever man.. when I see his wife looking at me with that supercilious and condenscending tone/attitude...
    I simply mash it to the floor, still looking her in the eye, my car had JUST shifted into second ( and I gotta give TJ Wong props, the adjustments he made are AWESOME) and was about ooh 2500 rpms mebbe, don't know for sure as I wasn't looking at the gauges.. but she dropped down and broke loose for a moment or two, the sound was gorgeous.. screaming tires and exhaust just reverberating off their car ( did I mention they were in their late 40's to 50's) and her expression changed INSTANTLY.. her eyes got sorta big and her mouth made that little *oh* of suprise .
    I look forward incase someone had pulled out off a side road etc, but no... still beautifully clear, I hold it to the carpet for two more upshifts, even got a nice little bark as the tires lost traction for a second or two going into 3rd..
    I look back and was actually suprised that this four door Caddy was as close as it was, three maybe four cars back near 110 ish..
    I am NOT that good a judge so it may have been only two cars as I didn't watch all that long...
    Nevertheless.. He never got any closer, even after I returned to 40 mph he stayed back..heheheh
    Not a bad way to break the doldrums .. I hear these Caddies do ok, guess this is a testament to that.

    if you have a cam, boltons and suspension you could probably beat the CTS V. what numbers are u pushing? I lost to a CTS-V with my minimal mods, by like 2 cars at 130mph. if it was the regular cts, u probably would have had like 8 car lengths

    could have been the regular cts then cuz they have the ls6, probably 350rwhp.

    I think all the regular CTSs are V6s. You have to get the CTS-V to get the LS motored car. Same thing as a GTO. They should be pretty quick.

    It prob was a V. If you got the jump, thats probably all you held. The 05/06 GTO is equipped with the LS2, CTS-V/LS6. They aint no joke guys..... A simple tune and CAI will put them near or over the 400/400 RW#'s.... No joke whatsoever.

    yea but he said he has 314 rwhp and he pulled a couple lengths. I would think that a stock cts-v would beat him. i dont think they're much heavier than f bodies either. but a v6 cts probably would have been buslengths behind. idk maybe a modded cts?

    I swear the whole reason the CTS-V was made was so that old people like my dad can kick ass in their older years. He used to own me with his grand marquee when i had my nissan, now he cant touch my stang, so he drives home in a caddy with the northstar 350HP motor...son of a bitch..

    lol my first car was a hand-me-down 92 mercury grand marquis from my mom back in high school. that thing was pretty powerfull and i always got a "whoa" outta my friends when we would be driving along and i would suddenly floor it. i think the mid 90's ones were around 260 hp. and it was soooo smooth. i could go over a huge pothole and barely feel it. now in my ss i can tell whether a penny is heads up or down when i pass over it lol. and the backseat of that car was like a friggin couch, i had some good times back there with my ex gf lol. i miss that car sometimes....

    regular cts's come with a 3.2 or 3.6 v6. both are respectable but nothing close to a stock ls1, especially a modded one. the first year they came out they got an ls6 now they have ls2's i believe with only an M6.

    Remember the old guy probably couldn't shift it very fast. that'll make a huge difference. Especially if he didn't run it up to red line. Most of the older people when trying to race just run up a little bit, but not full out.

    I didnt know they ever put LS2's in them. I thought they all had the LS6 motor? I can ask my one buddy, he's got one so he knows what the deal is with them. I know they're 12's right outta the box w/ guys who can drive them.

    The curb weight is just a little over 3500 pounds, so they weigh basically the same as a trans am.

    Negative sir..... If they're all LS2s then how is one a 5.7 and one a 6.0? I should have been more clear when I said LS6s.... The 04-05 models got the LS6 Z06 motor producing 400HP. Same HP output in the 06-07s but now they are carrying the LS2 6.0L.

    where and when did GM make a 5.7 ls2??? the first ones had the ls6 which is a 5.7 liter. ls2's are 6.0.
