    No more driving against Bob Loltz, now they have to contend with a real racer. :hsughno:

    I think Henricy was the guy who drove a supercharged Cobalt SS at a time attack event a few years back. He beat a ton of people with Evos, and everyone got butthurt. "They're factory, they're factory!" :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    I saw some CTS Sport Wagons at the texas state fair. I think that car is pretty neat.

    Personally i think the CTS-V's styling "enhancements" from the CTS make it less classy and handome.

    Some people were getting serious about this, judging from what they said about applicants. They may have been bringing pretty seasoned drivers as well.

    I remember questioning the idea of driving against Bob Loltz before, but everyone insisted that he'd be fine, even though he's old. :o

    The previous CTS-V was still pretty subtle. The new one? Not so much. :sad2:

    Bob Lulz can drive and all, but I just questioned the idea of making him go against drivers who would almost certainly be younger and likely more talented.

    yeah. The regular CTS redesign was such a success that making it look all tough and boy-racer just doesn't work.

    I do wish they had kept the CTS small and continued to target the 3-series. They could have done a nice and subtle CTS-V based on that and gone after the M3.

    imo the CTS is more of a tweener between the the 3-series and the 5-series.
    They are developing the soon-to-be released ATS to be a 3-series fighter.

    They need to ship over one of the new FQ-400s. :o
