Wow, great times. If the 05 comes with 400Hp, do you think that we will see times of 12.9 What does everyone think?

By the way, as far as I know, I think this time may very well be the quickest bone stock time for the 04 GTO/ Holden Monaro/ or HSV GTO ever...Including the ( 300 Kw ) 402 Hp HSV GTS model.

Either Pontiac has done something amazing with this motor, that Holden has overlooked, or you guys over there in the States sure know how to drive cars to the absolute limit.

Lets here it from some of our Aussie friends. Has any body out there posted a quicker time than this, in their stockers? Any model. Lets see some times guys.

13.3 in a car of this weight, with 350 Hp, is truely amazing.

if you have a look at the GTO's major advantage is in the gearing, its uses the close spaced ratio Z06 box, couple that with small 17" rims , and it rockets off the line, i'd love to see it with some 3.9 gears, but wheel spin would be a problem.

the gto is like a holden thats been edited, improved gears , seriously beefy cat back exhaust.

so yes ive seen many aussies pull those times under those conditions , just takes lots of practice.

But then again NickV is no rookie at the drags ... well done dude !!!

scan the time slips !!! :D
