Good morning everyone. I’ve decided to take my first stab here at blogging – first time user, long time listener I guess.
So it’s 7:45 am and I just arrived at the Spring Mountain Raceway/Compound… This place is quite a facility! Made it quickly through check-in, signed about 7 pages if waivers – who knows what I signed away – picked out tonight’s meal (a bit early for me to decide, but whatever) & fitted myself to a helmet.
Intro about to begin… More later.
So after the 40 of us (or so) have been split into 4 groups, we’ve loaded up into 15 pass vans & now I find myself in a classroom setting, w/6 Stingrays in various colors.
So with me – is Jessup Service Director and neo-pro Race Car driver, Dennis Silvers. We felt it was extremely important to have a service contact knowledgable and experienced in everything Stingray. Because we are your Stingray dealer before, during and after delivery.
Lots of questions about the two seat packages available on the 2014 Stingray — here they are up close and personal. It’s easy to see why the Competitive Seat is a racer-ready seat, with it’s cut outs for the 3-point racing harness and it’s increased bolster depth and supporting sides.

2013 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan Palm Springs
The 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan is designed for great road-holding performance, while maintaining the poise of a luxury car in average driving conditions. Perfect for day trips to Joshua Tree or cruising the night life of Palm Springs, the CTS-V is ideal for Southern California. Using Cadillac’s landmark Magnetic Ride Control, the world’s fastest-reacting suspension technology, the CTS-V uses shocks controlled by advanced magneto-rheological technology, rather than mechanical valves, to greatly accelerate response time and precision. Electronic sensors on all four wheels quite literally “read the road” every millisecond, making constant adjustments to damping to create virtually instantaneous and extremely precise control of body motions.
The Magnetic Ride shocks also enable a broader range of damping control to optimize the ride and handling for all driving conditions. An extra measure of control is offered, with two selectable modes (Tour and Sport), enabling the driver to tailor the suspension for grand touring or more spirited
performance driving. The CTS-V Sedan also incorporates sophisticated braking and tire systems, in partnership with Brembo and Michelin: two companies renowned for high-performance technology. Brembo brakes are at all four corners and include powerful, six-piston calipers in the front and four-piston calipers in the rear. Large, two-piece vented rotors enable strong initial braking force while optimizing heat resistance and eliminating fade. The two-piece design is also lighter and offers enhanced cooling during high-performance driving.
Michelin partnered with Cadillac engineers to develop an exclusive Pilot Sport PS2 tire specifically engineered for the CTS-V. The tires support high levels of grip in track conditions, while also affording excellent performance on the road. Additional chassis and suspension features include an independent short/long arm (SLA) front suspension system that features low-mass aluminum for the upper and lower control arms, as well as the knuckles, a multi-link rear suspension with a fully isolated subframe, a limited-slip differential, and a power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system. AStabiliTrak electronic chassis control system is integrated with Cadillac’s standard four-channel ABS with the full-function traction control, as well as the hydraulic brake assist and engine control systems.
Rated at 556 horsepower and 551 lb-ft of torque, The CTS-V Sedan’s 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine is the most powerful engine in Cadillac’s history. The engine features an intercooled Eaton Twin Vortices Series (TVS) supercharger, which employs twin four-lobe rotors that are twisted 160 degrees. Typical superchargers feature three lobes twisted 60 degrees. The fourth lobe and greater helix profile, when combined with unique air inlet and outlet ports, create smoother and more efficient airflow into the engine. In addition to improved overall efficiency, this supercharger has superior noise and vibration characteristics compared to more ordinary designs.
Two types of six-speed transmissions are offered in the CTS-V Sedan. A Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual with a dual-disc clutch, and a Hydra-Matic 6L90 six-speed automatic with steering wheel-mounted shift controls add an entirely new element to the CTS-V Sedan. The steering wheel-mounted controls require no shift lever movement and allow immediate tap up/tap down gear selection.
Performance Algorithm Shifting provides the automotive transmission with a performance-oriented shift pattern during sustained high-performance driving. As with many Cadillac models, a driver needs only to slide the shifter into the manual “gate” to put the transmission into a performance mode. Torque is channeled through the six-speed transmissions to a high-performance rear axle that features a limited-slip rear differential within a cast iron housing for greater thermal management and asymmetrical half-shafts to smoothly manage the supercharged engine’s incredible torque. The unique design includes alternately sized half-shafts that also help dynamically balance the oscillation of torque from side to side, all but eliminating “power hop.”
The 2013 CTS-V Sedan interior features streamlined instrumentation, LED lighting and hand-cut-and-sewn accents. Including performance seats featuring perforated suede microfiber inserts designed to hold the driver and front passenger in place during cornering. Recaro performance driving seats are optional and provide excellent support during performance driving. These 14-way adjustable performance seats include pneumatic bolster controls in the seat cushions and backrests. Cornering and handling combined with Cadillac’s record of luxury and refinement will make for an amazing driving experience all through Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley.
