    Actually its the other way around in a flatout 1/4-mile as the previous poster stated, who did own a RL, you will probably win, but from a roll you will lose.

    You know what, on my way home last night a girl in a Cobalt SS in that burnt orange color drove passed me. And i have to say, i think i actually found a car that i dislike even more than the SRT-4. I would own an SRT-4 long b4 i would own the SS. It has to be one of the ugliest things on the street, its body looks all bloated and that spoiler. Hold on..........



    ok im back just had to puke in the trash can again... what an ugly car!

    My second car was a 98 Grand Prix GTP coupe, my buddy ronnie has a 05 SS, we raced 3 times I barely beat him all 3 times, they were all to 110~ish. We both had horrible wheel spin.
    I want an STI, but I love my car:

    there's a kid at my school with a black ss. i can beat her from a roll and dig no problem. i'm still learning how to launch, i think that with a better driver it would be a closer race because i've sat in her car when she's floored it and it's got some pep to it.
