Stock GXP times?

What's the fastest stock GXP time? Quickest one I've found was a 12.9

Stock means as is, off the assembly line...stock tune, stock exhaust, stock wheels...

You are "replacing" the old tune with a new one that wasn't from the factory and is done by aftermarket companies or different people outside of GM.

It is also not stock by removing parts. That is modification, and when it's modified it is not stock.

No its not. You're increasing the output of the engine, how could that be considered stock?

I didn't see a timeslip for the 12.9 you claimed either (don't bother finding it). But their fastlist rules say that a timeslip needs to be shown. So either his post with the slip was deleted, he sent it via PM/email/moderator saw it in person (both from Maryland), or the moderator in charge of that thread put him on there without any proof for some unknown reason.

I'm not going to buy into a conspiracy on this though, there are a few timeslips in our own fast list that are missing but Junkie has verified all of them. I trust the same holds true at G8 Boards. If you want to exclude it, go ahead. Or join up at their forum and ask the guy yourself.

i realize people liked it. but an equal amount of people disliked it.

even my GM fanboy friends didnt like it. they said it was ugly and a glorified Grand Prix.

in my opinion the SHO looks better

That simply doesn't make sense to me. While there are many that don't care about it, few called it ugly. More often it was described as bland, boring, blobish, etc. But for all those that didn't like the styling there were an equal number that consider it a very good looking car, well proportioned with clean lines and so on. And I don't know of any that didn't like the performance of the V8 versions, except for those who were upset it was faster than their car of choice.

By the way, it is a Grand Prix. G8 = Grand Prix, 8th generation (its one of two G# cars that actually stood for anything, G6 is the other).

Maybe a little, but a timeslip doesn't prove he was stock anyway. At any rate, if I hadn't gone through our own fast list trying to link the names to their post (and slip) I wouldn't have known stuff like that happens and would probably be pretty suspicious of it myself. But I did, so I'm not. So, does anyone know of another, faster stock time (preferably with a time-slip)?
