So slow. It was way faster on track than the M4 on German tests. Weird

I’m a little surprised. Had expected it to go a bit faster. That precious M4 time must have been on cup2s.

Im surpised as well, I expected it to be a few tenths faster then the CTSV, Given its slow n hard turns i figured the Awd would help out more, But i guess the overall great handling of the Cadillacs trumped them.

But its LS, So im not really surprised since this track has huge differences with others.

Also the M4 was on MPSS, The GTS were on those.
