G8 GONE Bracket win
This was the winning round during the 2012 G8 GONE interNational G8 meet. I had the right lane with a dial in of 12.70 and ran 12.75 @ 111 mph. Left lane had a dial in 12.25 and actually beat me to the line, but broke out running a 12.14. Thanks to everyone that raced the event! http://www.g8gone.com/
The car is a 2008 Pontiac G8 GT 6.0L with cam & headers (and a pig rich tune).
Blast! Track Day - Pontiac G8 GT at Autobahn Country Club
To preface: no helmets were required for this event so I was not quite racing as my top speed was severely limited by the mostly stock RX-8 pace car (lowered suspension, upgraded brakes and tires, lightbar, and decals). That said, I was able to push most conrners fairly hard once the track started to dry. That said, the pace car was taking very "compromised" racing lines to avoid putting our qroup through the standing water sideways. So, it was closer to a parade lap than anything. Still, not bad for $50. Also, this is the last 15 min of a 24 min session, which was my second session of the day. I only paid for one session, but due to the extremely wet conditions of the earlier session, it wasn't exactly fun (I was in 4th and 5th gear for the whole first run) Both of the SS-R trucks in front of me were having traction issues and the 'Vette behind me actually spun out. Fortunately, I had no such issues. This is the second run (comp'd due to earlier track conditions). Anyhow, enjoy!

supercharged G8 GT
This is my first time using my gopro and using a video editor so dont beat me up to hard. This is my 2008 Pontiac G8 GT. I have put alot of work into this car over the years, from starting out wanting to be all motor with the stock 6.0 L76, which ended up getting up to 449 RWHP without touching the heads, to deciding to add some Boost by adding a Procharger D1SC. ended up making 610 RWHP on the STOCK 4.1 pulley. Hoping to swap the pulley out soon and break 700 HP at the wheels. Hope yall enjoy and comment!
Pontiac G8 test drive
Behind the wheel of the Pontiac G8, Holden's latest export to the United States.
The 2008 Pontiac G8 lineup will offer two models: G8 and G8 GT. Each will come with a host of standard performance, convenience and safety features, including:
Four-wheel independent suspension
Four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and traction control
Electronic stability control
18-inch aluminum wheels (19-inch wheels available with sport package)
Seat-mounted thorax air bags and dual-stage frontal air bags for front passengers, with automatic passenger sensing system
Roof rail side-impact air bags for both seating rows
XM Satellite Radio
Power-adjustable front seats
Chrome Exhaust tips
Rear lip spoiler
A sport package will be available for both models and adds features such as specific wheels including 19-inch aluminum wheels and performance tires on GT a rear wing spoiler, leather shift knob, leather-wrapped steering wheel and alloy pedals.
Distinctive elements include hood scoops and front fender vents, as well as projector-beam headlamps housed in crystal-clear lenses. At the rear, jewel-like taillamps also are mounted in housings and feature bright detail work surrounding the red lighting elements. G8 models have red taillamp lenses and twin chrome Exhaust outlets, while G8 GT models feature clear taillamp lenses and quad chrome Exhaust tips. All models have an antenna mounted at the rear of the roof.
The base G8 model receives a 3.6L DOHC V-6 with variable valve timing, rated at 261 horsepower (194 kW). It is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode.
The G8 GT is powered by a uniquely configured 6.0L small-block V-8, rated at 362 horsepower (270 kW) and 391 lb.-ft. of torque (530 Nm). A six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode is standard and features the fuel-saving Active Fuel Management system, which enhances fuel economy by alternating between eight- and four-cylinder power. An optional six-speed manual transmission will be available soon after launch.
A limited-slip rear differential is standard with GT models.
A 114.8-inch (2915 mm) wheelbase, wide front ( 62.7 inches / 1592 mm) and rear ( 63.3 inches / 1608 mm) tracks, and a fully adjustable, four-wheel independent suspension system combine to give the G8 a confident, sharp driving experience.
The four-wheel independent suspension system employs a MacPherson strut design in the front and a four-link coil-over-shock design in the rear. Tuning is specific between the base and GT models, but both models use a direct-acting front stabilizer bar, decoupled rear stabilizer bar and lateral ball joints on the rear suspension. This system delivers increased lateral stiffness for enhanced handling.
The front suspension features fully adjustable caster, camber and toe; the rear suspension has fully adjustable camber and toe, which enables more precise, tailored suspension tuning.
A four-wheel disc brake system includes standard anti-lock and traction control features and is partnered with a standard electronic stability control system. Both the base and GT models feature vented front and rear disc rotors, with twin-piston alloy calipers in front; the rear brakes feature alloy calipers with single-piston actuation. The brakes are approximately one-inch larger on the higher-performance GT model.
Designed to meld form and function with world-class fit and finish, the G8's interior delivers both comfort and convenience, packaged in a level of sophistication not often found in its price range. A driver-oriented instrument cluster positions the gauges for easy, direct line of sight; an electronic driver information center is located between the large, round tachometer and speedometer.
Attention to detail includes jewel-like instruments, selective use of satin and chrome trim and rich-feeling, grained textures throughout. The instrument cluster glows with crisp, white light on the primary instruments and Pontiac 's signature red lighting illuminates the rest of the instrument panel cluster.
The seats offer firm support to hold occupants in place during aggressive cornering; all seats were designed to deliver excellent comfort during long drives. Cloth seating surfaces are standard, with heated leather seating available. G8 GT models will also offer an optional two-tone cloth or leather combination that pairs black with either red or blue inserts and color-matched instrument faces on certain exterior color combinations.
Turbo 240sx vs Maxima vs G8
Good race between a turbo 240sx on 4-5lbs of Boost a stage 2 maxima and a Pontiac G8 with intake and Exhaust. The Maxima lost to the 240sx by 3/4 of a car. This is a much better race between the G8 and 240sx in the last video the 240sx started in the wrong gear and the out come is much different.
