    Hey guys,

    The Impala SS/Caprice platform can be made to handle very well as you have all pointed out. Handling is neutral and believe it or not I can drift my car very easily around interstate off ramps, controlling the 4400 lbs. with minor steering input and judicious application of the gas.

    Power from the LT1 engine is a lot in stock form, though not outstanding, at 260 HP/330 TQ, good for high 14's or low 15's totally stock, but bolt-ons will get guys into the high 13's. Guys running 12's are commonplace, fewer run in the 11's and there are a handful that are in the 10's, the fastest of which is 10.02@138.

    And to top it off, these cars are very well-mannered and nice daily drivers to boot.

    I've always admired the WRX for it's looks and performance. And the sound....how do you get such a cool sound from 4 cylinders? Some sound just plain MEAN! Really unique for such engine displacement.

    I'm thinking the AUTO-Xer with the Impala SS & WRX is Ed Runnion, a well-known and respected member of the SS community.

    Most of you guys here would probably hand me my a$$ in a race, but it's all in fun. Each car has it's strong points and should be respected in it's own regard. I appreciate the kind comments about the SS in this thread.

    Eric
