alot of other modded sts'* get similiar results, the fastest ive seen was a 0-60 in 5.35, 13.6 1/4 and a trap speed of 110, not my car but he has almost the same mods. For a GTP to get a 110mph trap speed, there deep into the 12'*. Im sure i could get in the high 13'* with some new rubber and the right conditions. Don't mess with a modded caddy on the highway, they'd probably take a heavily modded gtp. but we'd get beaten bad off the line, I can barely spin the tires from a stop, but when she gets up to around 15 im pushed back pretty hard all the way up to 125-130 then it goes into OD, still good acceleration just not hold the sterring wheel as tight as you can acceleration.

That is amazing top-end. I haven't really seen too many Caddy STS'* in my area so I am not sure if there are many modded around here. I will definitely watch out though. I just went back and looked at my timeslips on the Bonne and the trap speed is only 93 not 99. The only thing i don't like about the big family cars is they are hard to judge how fast they are because they are such smooth cars. It was nice talking to you. I like to be up-to-date on cars that I might run into.

Bonneville Blue - You need to talk to DHP. My car shifts from 1st to 2nd @ 48 and from 2nd to 3rd @ 94. It also downshifts to 1st as high as 41mph. The DHP computer also gives the tranny more line pressure so it doesn't lag on shifts anymore. It has made the car seem a lot stronger through the whole rpm range. I need to get it the track early next spring to see where it is now. I know tonight with the ground being cold it was smoking the tires from 20mph punches. I have only had 2 races since the computer was installed. 1st one was another Bonneville. It was a 95 Series II non-SC. We went from 60 - 80 or so and I pulled 3+ cars on him. Hopefully, he will be joining over here to get some mods for his car. The 2nd was the Trans Am that had a crappy driver I listed above. Trying to find someone that I can guage the car by.
