Bottom line is, the fastest driver in the CTS-V is faster than the fastest driver in anything else that was there. If you think the M3 is faster, back it up with some data. The CTS-V also beat it in the C&D comparision.

Bottom line, a pro driver in a faster car- in a car he helped develop- beat a kid in a car with 150+ less HP, around a track the pro-driver did extensive lapping on. That's the bottom line. Not too impressive, IMO.
How many track events have you done?

Bottom line, the kid beat all the other amateurs, including the ones in a CTS-V; one of whom apparently wrote a book on cars, so I'd think he's had some tme behind the wheel of a car at a track. The kid's a stud. This contest was just BS since it's different people driving their own cars with each at a different skill level. Anyone who's been on a track knows it's the driver >>> the car.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
