Default GXP 0-125

While browsing Putfile I found this:
http://media.putfile.com/Pontiac-Bonneville-GXP-0-125

I hope it'* not a repost, but I just thought the V8 sounded really cool. Maybe I haven't heard any GXP'* before

Relatively fast but the wheelspin isn't helping matters.

It dissapoints me when hardly anyone knows how to utilize the P.A.*. (performance algorythim shifting) I don't know if the Northstar in the GXP has it, but I'm sure it does if it'* just a down-tuned version of the one'* used in STS'*.

"PAS (Performance Algorithim Shifting) is a transmission algorithm that looks at lateral acceleration, throttle, and vehicle deceleration activity to determine if the vehicle is being driven in a competitive manner. If the algorithm recognizes these conditions, it can force downshifts and hold lower gears for optimized vehicle performance."


I'm sure you've heard of it before. Many automatic driven cars are starting to utilize this technology today. Damn near everyone I've seen driving these cars hard doesn't use it when going in a straight line.

A GXP barking 2nd? I'd have to see that to believe it (assuming dry pavement, right?)

It has a N* correct? Then it'* using the same 4 speed automatic transmission as the STS'* right (4t80-E)? All of which have P.A.*. Maybe they didn't put the same technology in the GXP as they did the STS'*, SLS'* STS-V etc., but every N* powered car I've driven to date will bark into second if you manually go through the gears accordingly.
