The other night around 2 or 1 in the morning I was coming home from dropping off a few people The Transporter style. As I got off the 90 and made my way to the intersection. Outa nowhere this ford f150 starts revving and starts iniating some sorta car talk i suppose. Im still waiting and the light is red for me . . . . well now its green and i just start to go. But as soon as i hear this guy going with his high revs, I've gotta represent so I gun it. 1st gear is just where I'm barely neck and neck with him, 2nd is where his front is near my rear passenger door and when I get into 3rd, well I just saw him in my rear view mirror. Now, does this surprise anyone? I mean, 2 cars side by side going straight into two lane street that converts into one and the smaller one wins? I mean, at the least it has a 6 cyl and can go up to a hefty 8 cyl. I really don't like being harrassed by this big engine cars, the other night it was a one of those big 10 or 12 cyl caddies with 4 doors. . . . i pretty much lost him in corners on culver but then he got me on the straight way but i got him on some more corners . . . i think im goin to take a dif way home from now on.

It seems like 3rd is the most powerful gear, I raced a z28 sat night and we were neck and neck till 3rd.

Yeah, that northstar is fast....My Allroad 2.7Bi tip (stock) is dead even with a 2 door eldorado V8.

PDR, is your car modded at all? If not you almost getting beat by a ford isn't that big of a deal. When i was stock i got my ass handed to me by a durango.

You do realize that car would rip apart all but that fastest A4s on this board, correct?

not only would it rip us apart, it would likely kill all but the best of us in the corners too... 400 hp and sub-5 0-60 makes for plenty of power around... they developed the thing at Nurburgring, so they know a thing or two about corners.

doesnt that car have a corvette engine? im pretty sure it does...

It's a friggin CTS-V. It would kill tons of cars. Then again racing in an A4 isn't the best thing to do anyway.

i don't care what engine is in that. that car looks nasty. if it was given to me, i would immediately sell it. we all ride in cadillacs when we die...that's why i won't drive one.

i seen a ford lightning give it to a modded mustang on the strip one night.
the regular f150 is no sloach. I remember one time this v8 ford van beat me off the line in my integra until we got up to 60 mph then i crept by and walked him. No it wasn't a ricer fly by either!!!
I was embarrassed. that van had loads of torque...

Maybe that caddy doesnt have the corvette engine in it. I didn't think it was out yet. If that was a normal CTS, a modded A4 would rape it. (Modded meaning bigger turbo)

Raced a G35 the other day, gave it a 3 second head start and passed it before I hit 3rd gear. But then this was at the Summit Series drag races at Fontana. I passed him and coasted for a 13.0 at 97 mph after running nearly 89 mph in the 1/8th.

The CTS has been out for quite some time and yes it does have a version of the LS series engine.

It most definantly has the corvette motor in it. and you can put corvette parts on it if it will fit under the under. Last year I went to a corvette tuner in MN and the where putting on a new catback exhaust and headers. All custom work. www.tpis.com

Most chevy sports cars come with some form of LS motor from the vette. CTS should have the LS1, the 05 GTO comes with the LS2 which is found in the C6 vette. There is also the caddy sports car which should also have a LS motor.

Not correct, Cadillac had both 12 and 16 cylinder vehicles.

Both the Lightning and SRT-10 would crush you into the dirt without even trying very hard.

Yup, back in the day Cadillac had a lot of metal under the hood.

The older lightnings are not terribly fast without work done. Not like the new SC ones.

Live2Ski - True.
EVIL-AUDI - True, but they've been SC since the late 90s.

They made lightning trucks well before that since it was just an option package for the standard truck.

Exactly, the much older body styles were just V8's
