Infinity M

Don't know what those Infinity M's have in them but they run pretty strong. I was going home in the GS last night when one started frogging me,I don't street race but he messed with the wrong dog last night,bet he won't do that again.

Is that a new GS?!? How long have you had it? Did you trade your other sc'd vette in? Are you going to sc the GS as well??

I'm not sure what those Infinity's have under the hood, but car makers have been making family sedan's fast, and luxury sedan's even faster!

Another reason, why my vette is currently "under the knife"!

There's a version with a 420-hp 5.6-liter V8 with 417 lb-ft of torque. Pretty decent for a 4 door sedan. Maybe he forgot that while HP is close, the vette is a lot lighter in weight...

Yep! They also don't take "gearing" into account as well.

Yea I bought the GS three weeks ago,so far only an Airade intake and some minor cosmetics,I kind of got tired of the blacked out look,love this GS. Way faster than I expected.

I didn't look at ratios, but it has a 7 speed tranny. If left in auto mode, it should have downshifted and been in powerband as soon as the gas was mashed.

With all the 7 and 8 spd tranny's out there, I'm feeling left behind with just 6.



Bucwheat: is your new ride an M6 or A6?
