    That Cobalt wasent simply a staged upgraded car......that was completely gutted and rebuilt by Chevy's race devision. The build up of that car was documented on SPEED Channel. However they did run the stock break calipers.....thats it.......chasis was built from scratch, same as motor,suspension. They did a great job with that thing.

He was about 3 lengths ahead of me and I was pulling, but only by a little bit. This was up until the top of 4th, about 125mph. That Cobalt was really quick! We go through the turn around and on the Northbound side we slow down to 40, and he gives 3 honks and we're off. I started pulling slowly and he missed 4th. There wasnt enough room for another run though. I wanted to see what would happen top end.

    The supercharger was LOUD! The SC whine sounded like a Cobra from one of those videos. It had to have had a pully and other mods. The exhaust looked stock though. I gave him a thumbs up before we parted.

    Boost was set to only 18psi because I cant get my boost controller set correctly to 19. I had about 200lbs of crap in the wagon + a 130lb person in the passenger seat.... At least I didnt get killed my a Cobalt because I wouldnt be able to live with myself.

    cliffnotes: Cobalt SS's are faster than I expected. I'm going to give those cars more respect from now on.
    Well if your car wasn't Hella-slow, you would've smoked him. Might I suggest installing VTEC or installing "TeH fAsTar" in your ride for better performance.

    You know I'm busting your chops. Next time you see him, give him a little taste of "alcohol" and call it a day.
    If you can't run fairly from a dig, take your rolls back to the bakery.

    I had a little encounter with a SS this morning. I was waiting at a light behind one in a merge lane for the expressway. I can see him looking back at my car and am wondering...'Is he that foolish to go hard from a dig????' So he eases away from the light and we merge onto the expressway and he is going really sllooowww looking in the rear view mirror. I am thinking ...buddy, either hit it or get out of the way!! So finally about 80km/h he nails it, gets a little jump so I hit it we both go to the far lane I am having to let off on the gas and then of course miss 4th...he gains a bit then I hit 4th and go into the other lane...was pulling hard but had to shut down earlier due to traffic. I get back into the left lane behind him and he slows right down...In the left lane....Ass...Anyways, my first encounter with an SS...moral of the story WRX stage 2 protuned>SS!!!
