    Cobalt SS vs. 06 TR

    Well I was cruising down the boulevard and spotted a Cobalt SS. We're going about 40-45 mph.

    There was a girl driving, she didn't look like she really wanted to race. I paced her a couple times and didn't seem to get any response. I was up so she was at my rear bumper and letting off the throttle to get back to the speed limit when she zoomed past! I was like huh? OH!

    I grabbed 2nd and took off. I wasn't sure if I was going to catch her, I knew those were pretty quick. I reeled her in more quickly than I expected. As I grabbed third, I was passing her. By 80 mph I had a car length. I hit the brakes when I saw the cop car, luckily there was no one in it.

    At the next stop light she gave me a smile. I motioned to go from a stop but she would have none of it. She knew her chances were non-existant.

    Aren't cobalts supposed to be fast?

    I thought SS = supercharged for Cobalts.

    I'm looking at Chevy's website and apparently not. How can you tell them apart? It looks like the spoilers and wheels are different, although I didn't get a good look at either. I know the spoiler was quite large, although she could've always just put the SS supercharged wing on her car. The SS non-supercharged has a much smaller spoiler.

    Although it makes sense. apparently the SS Supercharged has like 205 HP. According to Cobb, the 06 will put down 202 to the wheels, which means I'd win no matter what.

    They make the "SS" and the "SS Supercharged". Look at GM's website. Kinda had me confused too.

    Don't count on it. I thought I read somewhere that they were putting 200-210 down at the wheels, severely underrated like the SRT-4 if true. Plus they are pretty light, probably a couple hundred pounds lighter than your TR, but I am not sure.

    One of them tried racing me while I was driving my brothers 350Z. Ouch, he will not try it again.

    it was a 40mph roll, by the end of 100 I had maybe 12 car lengths


    You can tell he was not good at driving stick. He started it, I ended it.

    It had to be a non supercharged version. The supercharged version (Traps 99mph) would probably give a 350z a good race from a roll.

    Yeah, most dyno's I have seen have them putting down more to the wheels than the manufacturer states to the crank, lol.

    Yeah, 2 different SS's

    They make one with a N/A 2.4ltr engine that puts out 170hp and a 2.0ltr Supercharged version that puts out 205hp.

    A standard WRX should be as quick if not a little quicker than the Supercharged version, especially a 2006 WRX. I don't know why everyone thinks he had to have raced the non-blown model. From what I have heard, the 2.4 is a dog, he would have blown that one away. This race sounded fairly close.

    Well theres 2 things that could've happened.

    It was supercharged or

    It wasn't supercharged and my WRX isn't really a WRX, it's an impreza with a WRX badge, a fake boost gauge and turbo noises, and the "spool up" I feel is subarus VTEC equivalent kicking in. Damn those dealers, fooling me. lol

    It had to be supercharged. It had the wing, and I didn't exactly blow it's doors off. I mean, it was quick, but just not as quick as the 06 TR.

    yeah those ss supercharged cobalts are pretty fast stock, but they dont really compare to a WRX or are even in the same league as the STI. I think the level right below the WRX/Evolution/SRT4 category sounds more like its speed rank.
