Default Pontiac Bonneville GXP 0-123

On a closed road. I cant figure out a way to get a good running start plus the fact I was on a slight incline. Exhaust was really roaring though. let me say I would not trust those brakes to slowdown for a while after that run.

No power braking here....I just mashed the gas after pressing the record button on the camera.

OOO I got lost in lounge and came out of reply in lounge and saw locked. I thought timing from wheel spin was more like 6.5 seconds to 60 mph. And a 100 just under 15. Everybody get their stop watchs out and try it Ya the brakes get warm. It will go to 140...trust me. Are you going to quater mile car? I think the club member in Germany had his to 146. Mine just hit 140, but just over 1100 miles on odometer and it hasnt opened up all the way yet. Very cool post Shadow. i bet if you get rid of your wheel spin you could do a low 15(edited as I actually got out a stop watch) ......Stock

And I use blinkers at all speeds roflmao

Thansk GXP...yeah I did not like the braking perfomance at all. I didnt slam them but they felt very weak. I know I can best 6.5 seconds if I really tried but this is my first vid of anything like this. And like you said before...the exhaust is good so I am not pessing with it. Now I just need that supercharger whine...
