    Sure, let them know that I'll be happy to provide a testing platform for some 3/4ton rear-steer axles.

    Well since you asked..........
    The duramax in the Avalanche, and 'Burb would be awesome but I would settle for just the Allsion behind the 8.1 in those models.
    I want the Quadra-steer in the 8.1l/Duramax equipt. trucks/Sub.
    Could they please please please supercharge the Silverado SS.
    Oh and bring back the RWD Impala SS.
    Thats all I can think of right now but I will wait for your replies.
    One more thing I want them to DESTROY my local GMC dealer, can they do that? Do they have a button or something to just make it like it was never there?

    Damn one more thing, I want a CTS spec-V Can I demo one for like a month or so?? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    duramax sub suggested... allison suggested... rear-steer burb suggested...

    /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    what is mildly cool is that I am sitting on the same floor as the HUMMER folks... they have the original sketches on the walls... and I heard that they have an original model somewhere around here.

    did I mention the auto museum in the basement?

    Bring back the last rendition of the Caprice in a Police Pursuit Package with a top speed of 140.

    Or a Tahoe Pursuit Package with the following things: Tweaked suspension for high speed field runs, 0-60 in 5 seconds, top speed 140 and a fuel range of 400 miles............... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    All I ask is that You tell them to take a look at how The Germans build cars and to catch a fawwking clue. V8's inline 6's and rear drive. Other than the Vett every Chevy car on the road today sucks and that includes the crappy front drive Impala and Malibu /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    welcome back to the age of torque and rear wheel drive... take a good look at Caddy these days and you will get a good idea of where the future of GM is headed. I hate hate hate to sound like I work for them... but I would take an XLR over damn near any other 2-seater out there today... v8's, I-5's, good diesels... GM is slow as hell, but I think they are headed where they need to go. Also check out the quality numbers on the new cars... beating the germans and most of the imports as well, of course I wouldnt drive a car that looks like they do, but that will change in time too. Check the Solstice... rear wheel drive. the Saturn Curve... rear wheel drive. Also check it out... Saturn is going away from plastic bodies that fit like [darn] and are going back to a semi-metal body that fits like its supposed to... want to see the future of GM's ute's check the new little ute (cant remember its name) but its a pretty sweet little ride...
