Awesome, be sure to check out Dyno's car. Also you would be only the second 3rd gen at the meets so it would be cool if you came out, next one is planning for June. OR come out to Orlando SpeedWorld and let me know, if you need to you can couch surf at my place for the night.

At 15.0 you might be able to take down a 04-05 GTO, I held one off just the other day from a roll at Orlando race wars, we rolled from 20 and he pulled about half a car instantly but never pulled more. From a dig he killed me though.

Lol damn. My SRT use to walk away from GTO's and Mustang GT's. Kept side by side with a GT500 with minor bolt ons just before I got rid of it.

Bs not with 91mph trap speed. They are slow but not compared to n/a 4 cylinder. They trap 100-103. Unless the guy was not pushing it hard.

If the GTO was in 2nd gear for some reason I see it as possible. As 1st gear is generally long in them and 2nd would've been weak at that low of rpm

I don't see how a high 14's car is much faster than a sprayed low 15's car, espically when my spray just makes me spin off the line.

They are that slow, they run a 14.8 in Florida.

My cousin had one with a t56 and I owned an 04 for about two months, my 94 Camaro Z28 was faster bone stock.

It was in first, my car kicked to first and instantly sprayed since it was over 3700 RPM's the cut off is 6200, right before the shift and kicks right back on after the shit, WOT switch controlled 50 shot on a basically stock auto Focus.

He did not shift aggressively and was quiet surprised when I stayed near him. I wish I got a video, but they do not let you record while driving.

I wasn't arguing with you. I was just stating some possibilty. I guess Florida heat can slow them down as 6.0 GTO's run 4.7 to 60 and low 13's according to car and driver.

My SRT was stage 3 with 50 trim turbo.

I have never seen one that fast, mine ran a 14.5 with some bolt on's and that was worthy of a few pats on the back. One of my friends that drive a Z28 last year when I did now drives a 06 (I think) 6.0 and runs like a 14.3 or so. Im not saying its not possible, rather I just haven't seen it personally. I actually never knew they were that fast, the GTO was cool but I never got obsessed with it like my other cars. It just, wasn't for me I guess. At the time I was really ready for a turbo'd 4 cylinder, and since money was tight I decided to go nitrous instead, which I don't regret, other than sound, I wish I had the whistle.
