Pontiac G8 Drag Strip Run

Our Pedderised, ProCharged Corsa equipped G8 make 480 RWHP. The OE Wheels and Tires are bit under size. Running at the strip with the traction control on the car still rips loose on the up shifts -- even when I try to moderate the throttle at the point of the up shift. Our best runs are 12.7 seconds -- even running with a light throttle. We will upgrade the tires and wheels very soon and expect to run very low 12s with street tires.

Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing. Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is outside-the-box styling at its best. Owner: • Mike Artman





Pontiac G8 GT drag racing in car
My Pontiac G8 GT at Cordova Dragway. Runs were made during National G8 meet September 2011. Mods are Volant intake, Vector Motorsports stage 1.5 cam and tune, Kooks headers w/catted midpipe system to stock axleback mufflers. Last run was personal best 12.95 at 109.8 mph on the last run. This was with street tires 285-35-19 Nitto Invo, so not great traction, best 60ft is over 2 seconds. Drag tires should help with that, hopefully. www.G8GONE.com
