105 versus 110 is why in the quarter

Those numbers do not lie sir.

That 6 speed auto is nasty though.

Thought GM, as well as most other testers, stated that the auto was slightly quicker in the 0-60 by like .1 or .2 secs and the LS3 in the 1/4 by like .1 or .2 secs.

Some of those times are really high. I ran a 12.9 1/4 in my '05 GTO with slicks a couple times. Some of those were like 13.8 and 13.9

You can't compare different cars and drivers.

Slicks can easily knock off a .3-.5 in a 1/4 though

Alot of the guys on here have a problem spinning the tires , but once I turn everything off and hit it I spin just fine. I must have gotten a strong L99. Have about 1600 miles on it so far. Dealer said it wouldn't be near full power until like 3000 or so.

yeah slicks is the difference in a 2.2 60' and a 1.8 60'

and as a rule of thumb for every .1 off 60' it takes .2 off your et

Well guys, I better try and sleep for a few hours. Gotta be up at 9am. Looks like my wife got held up at work so hopefully she will call later. Sorry again for all that crap earlier, didn't mean it. I know sorry is not quite enough, but I'll keep saying it anyways. Hope to talk to you guys again sometime.
