    yea im pretty sure any car can beat any car if given the right conditions...our advantage is being able to launch pretty well and the ability to drive quickly on loose surfaces. other cars have different advantages. i got destroyed by stock miatas and honda fits before because the course was as tight and technical as they come. they are the perfect cars for the environment.

    he may have beat you as far as highway monster status but that just makes him a one trick pony....get him to race you in various conditions and see if he truly has a better "race" car.
    If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you.

    the Cobalt will spank you from 30. I've gathered that a 2009 Cobalt SS stg II will trap around 107+ MPH with a good launch and proper tires. I hate to say it, but even in the bendies, the Cobalt SS should take you. The car may be a POS, but when it performs, it performs. I have driven one and can tell you personally, they are THAT GOOD. Too bad I've been spoiled by AWD

    I can agree with you 100%. They would be awesome cars, if they didnt look like a cobalt.

    Oh i know the new balt is a beast, i came from the ecotec family before i had my wrx... granted my ion redline was faster (From a roll) the wrx seems so much more usable in the low end.

    having 260+whp i ran a best time and trap of 14.1 @ 103mph at 4900' altitude... i'm positive my wrx can beat that time, not the trap speed but definitely the ET.

    I love AWD, and the fit and finish of this car is so much better than the ION could have ever dreamed to be.

    The WRX 4000#s doesnt help things either.


    I nearly crapped myself when I saw the GVW on my 04.

    dude, the GVW is the weight of the car plus the total amount of cargo it can carry. The curb weight of the WRX (weight of the unladen car + fluids) is around 3050 pounds.

    Don't worry, your car doesn't weigh more than a BMW M5 lol

    WRX is still a pig.

    As for the "newb" comments, cut me some slack, I took a 3 year break from playing with cars, just need to get back into the groove.
