It does seem odd that the M3 pulled on the V that hard especially after the V finally hooked.
Also, a 650hp V is pretty minor bolt ons.
There was a 700hp V Coupe at my track last year that couldn't break out of the 12's cause it couldn't hook for shit even with DR's.
2 things I'm seeing here ......1 the M is DCT and lighter " major advantage "
2 the CtsV is manul " disadvantage " & heavier .

If the VF650 wants a comparable race then he should run a D3 car. My V has a 2.9L whipple, valvetrain, and cam right now putting down almost 700whp running rich to redline. the race would be the other way around if i ran that. But the VF650 is impressing me alot....wonder if its faster than the ESS 650
are you by any chance the gentleman that called out a few cars in the New York area ? One being a GTR ? The gentleman that you spoke to name is Dru ? If I disregard
But hey I wouldn't mind running your CTSV
... You Game ?
