Test Parameters

Testing was conducted on a 600-foot slalom course and 200-foot skidpad. Both courses were concrete rather than asphalt, and had incongruities inherent in them that would affect the results compared to dedicated testing facilities run on asphalt that were perfectly flat and concentric. In order to determine if the slalom and skidpad were skewing the results, we utilized a '13 Cadillac CTS-V wagon to benchmark against published tests and then adjusted the skidpad numbers to be reflective of a standard course. No adjustments were made to the slalom numbers.
