    5.4s is a real time assuming you don't suck as a driver. I guess w/a non-solid launch 6s.

    The fact that a person out there, somewhere, has a grand am and thinks its faster than a WRX hurts me.

    I agree you must have gotten a really bad launch. Rev up to 5k-6k RPM, dump that clutch and you will kick his ass.

    I've seen this car go to 140 mph no problem. It all just depends on how brave you are. I wouldn't do it myself if it is not in a controlled environment though.

    Are you sure it was a Grand Am and not a Grand Prix? At least Grand Prixs have over 200 hp. Grand Am's have like 170 hp max the only way you should have lost is if you pushed on the brake pedal instead of the gas. From a roll you should kill a Grand Am.

    Jesus dude, did you just take off like you were casually driving?

    I beat a GMC RWD truck with a 4.8L V8 (275HP) this weekend and we ran from a stop; I've got a stock '03 5-speed and I probably launched at 2500RPM because I don't like to beat on the tranny.

    If you're having trouble with a Grand Am then you've got a driving issue, heh.
