    Looking at the SS forums, the best drivers can get into the low 14's at 98-99 mph with a couple at 100. So if a bad driver in an STI runs into the better SS driver, the SS could win.

    As in most cases the driver is potentially the variable to beware of.

    ya and if the STi only has three wheels and the cobalt has a jet pack it could be a close race. if you wanna know which car is actually faster, especially stock, you can't take into acount bad driving / wacky what ifs. but in the real world, yes i suppose a cobalt being driven by none other than vin diesel could stand a chance against a blind man with no limbs driving an STi in reverse.

    The Cobalt guys seem to think that Evo's and STi's are slow. You can't be on a Cobalt forum without a new thread every day about how they're always murdering stock and modded Evo's and STi's. Cobalts, the new SRT-4s minus the horsepower.

    I know the STI will easily win with all things equal, but I think part of the fun at the drag strip is watching faster cars get beat by slower cars with better drivers.

    I thought the fun part of the drag strip was watching bad ass burn outs, and then eating some nachos.
