Limit Pushing - Chrysler 300m Top Speed Test (Almost hit a truck)
(Limited: 111 mph)
If you watch the end of the video, you get to see us almost hit a truck while driving at about 100 mph.
The Chrysler 300M:
The Chrysler 300M was produced from 1999 to 2004 after Chrysler's revival of the 300 name. Chrysler's goal of the 300M was to compete with similar sporty sedan imports which was a market not yet probed by other American auto makers. This time the 300 would be FWD with a 255 hp V6 engine car in the LH platform. This engine would be the only one available for the 300M. It was shared with the Plymouth Prowler and a limited edition R/T variant of the second-generation Dodge Intrepid. Rated at 253 HP, and 255 lb-ft of torque, it was connected to the 42LE, a four-speed automatic transmission with Autostick, which allowed manual selection of gears. The 300M was much more of a luxury car as opposed the older Chrysler letter cars.
Limit Pushing - Chrysler 300c Hemi Top Speed Test
130 MPH was what we were expecting, but we just couldn't get that needle to
move any further. It is pretty damn fast considering the thing is shaped
like a brick. The 300C is limited at 130 MPH.
The 300C comes with a 5.7 L Hemi V8. At full power, the 300C creates 340 hp
and 390 lbs of torque. This engine runs on four cylinders when less power
is needed to reduce fuel consumption. Even with this energy saving mode,
the 300C runs at 15 mpg city, 23 mpg highway. All 300Cs use a 5-speed
automatic transmission and standard 18 inch chrome-clad alloy wheels.
The Heritage Edition 300C comes with the 5.7 L Hemi engine and many of the
SRT-8's exterior modification, added chrome, special tires on 18 inch
wheels, and SmartBeam headlights.
Special SRT Packages:
In 2007 the SRT Design group created a package for non-SRT 300C's that
includes performance suspension, SRT 20 inch polished aluminum wheels, a
high speed engine controller with revised tuning for 5.7 L HEMI that brings
the power to 350 HP, high flow air cleaner system, and performance Exhaust.
The SRT-8 version of the 300 includes a 6.1 L Hemi V8 which produces 425
hp. This engine produces 0-60 mph times of 5.1 seconds. The SRT-8 includes
leather SRT-8 performance seats, 20 inch polished aluminum wheels, Brembo
brakes, and rear lip spoiler.
Limit Pushing - Cadillac Escalade Top Speed Test
Cadillac Escalade High Speed Test (Top Speed Limited: 106 mph)
403 @ 5700
417 @ 4400
Premium Large Sport-utility Vehicle
In 1998 Ford launched the Lincoln Navigator into the automotive market. GM
quickly devised a response to the Navigator and in 1999 GM introduced the
first generation of the Escalade. The original Escalade was launched with
the 5.7 L Vortec 5700 V8 at 255 hp engine and Autotrac selectable 4x4. Over
the years the Escalade became infamous for having almost identical designs
as the Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Yukon Denali. GM did not produce a
2001 Escalade but instead redesigned the SUV for the 2002 model year. In
2004 the Escalade received many different changes to the luxury of the
vehicle including optional 20 inch rims, XM satellite radio, second-row
bucket seats, and a tire pressure monitoring system. In 2005 a Platinum
edition of the Escalade was introduced. The Platinum edition featured
heated and cooled cup holders, 20 inch chrome wheels, moon roof, three DVD
screens, and chrome accents on the steering wheel and grille.
In 2007 the Escalade underwent another remodeling. The 2007 Escalade's
engine is an all-aluminum 6.2 L Vortec V8. This pushrod engine includes
variable valve timing, a first in a mass-produced non-overhead cam engine.
The engine produces 403 hp (23 hp more than the GMC Yukon Denali) and 417
lbs of torque. The Escalade comes with a six-speed 6L80 automatic
Limit Pushing - Turbo LS2 GTO Base Line Dyno Test
We're back! Sorry to keep you all waiting, but life has been a bit busy.
Our turbo LS2 GTO has been around for a
while now running on a simple street tune. We will get a more efficient
tune on the Dyno soon,
but until then, we wanted to see what kind of numbers it could put down.
Turns out it makes quite a bit over stock, but there will be more to come.
Our more expert audience will most likely notice the odd power curve. This
is a result of the timing being pulled to promote the longevity of the
engine before a Dyno
tune could be performed.
The Pontiac GTO:
The Pontiac GTO was built by Pontiac Division of General Motors in the
United States from 1964 to 1974, and by GM subsidiary Holden in Australia
from 2004 to 2006 as the Holden Monaro. It is considered to be one of the
most innovative classic muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s. The GTO came at
a time when General Motors had banned the divisions from involvement in
auto racing. At the time, Pontiac's marketing was heavily based on
performance. This change in GM's policy forced Pontiac to turn its
attention to street performance.
The GTO was born from a redesign of the Tempest which was to be called the
"Super Tempest" with the larger 6.4 L Pontiac V8 engine from the full-sized
Pontiac Catalina and Bonneville in place of the standard 5.3 L Tempest V8.
The big-engine Tempest was badged the GTO for "Gran Turismo Omologato"
after the Ferrari 250 GTO. The GTO escaped the violation of GM policy by
becoming an option package for the Pontiac Tempest LeMans. The GTO package
had sold 10,000 units before the beginning of 1964 followed by total sales
of 32,450 GTOs. 75,342 were sold by 1965. This optional $ 296 package
included a 6.4 L V8 that produced 348 hp with a single Carter AFB
four-barrel carburetor and dual Exhaust, chromed valve covers and air cleaner, 7
blade clutch fan, a floor-shifted three-speed manual transmission with
Hurst shifter, stiffer springs, larger diameter front sway bar, wider
wheels with 7.50 x 14 redline tires, hood scoops, and GTO badges. The
original GTO's was clocked about 5.6 seconds for the 0--60 test and a
standing quarter mile time of 14.8 seconds.
As time went on, sales increased to almost 100,000 GTOs a year. Pontiac
pushed for the GTO to be called the "GTO Tiger" in advertising, but it
eventually became known in the youth market as the "Goat." The late 60's
saw the creation of the ram air engines and the birth of the Judge. Power
increased over the 60's from 348 hp to 375 hp in the best ram air
applications. The best equipped GTOs could get from 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds
and perform a standing quarter mile in 11.5 seconds.
As the 70's rolled in, sales of the GTO plummeted. By 1973 GTO sales were
down to 4,806 cars and the energy crisis was beginning to emerge. In 1974
Pontiac moved the GTO option to the compact Pontiac Ventura, also known as
the Chevrolet Nova. This was done in an effort to become part of the
compact muscle market which already included the Plymouth Duster 360, Ford
Maverick Grabber and AMC Hornet X. The 1974 GTO was tested a with the
four-speed transmission and achieved a 0-60 time of 7.7 seconds and a
quarter mile at 15.72 seconds. Sales improved in 74 to over 7,000 cars, but
1974 would be the last model year for the original GTO.
In 1999, the Detroit Auto Show beheld a GTO concept car. The 1999 concept
was never produced but in 2004 Pontiac re-launched the GTO under the
Holden Monoro platform. The new GTO was equipped with the Corvette's 350 hp
LS1 engine in 2004 and the 400 hp LS2 engine for 2005 and 2006 with a
choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. The GTO was
sold in the UK as the Vauxhall Monaro and in the Middle East as a Chevrolet
Lumina SS. The new GTO was never as popular in the U.S. due to the styling
which was obviously not aimed towards GTO heritage or the car's performance
(even with GM's frantic decision to add sporty hood scoops), and GM's
failure to use a traditional American built car. The 2005 and 2006 models
were virtually the same mechanically. Both made good use of the 400 hp LS2
engine and could go from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and could execute a standing
quarter mile in 13 seconds. The 2006 model drew the GTO to a close once
again with the end of GM's 3 year GTO revival plan.
