    Cobalt SS

    Finally got the opportunity to race this kid with the SC SS, he has a pulley kit and exhaust and thinks it's the fastest car in town. So we line 'em up on a quiet highway and I let him launch first, just so he can't have an excuse for losing. So after he launches I stomp on the gas pedal, bust out sideways and pass him while I'm spinning, I fly by him and he gets farther and farther back in my mirror. I stopped around 130 and had a demanding lead. Right after that my buddy raced him with his 94 Z28 and stomped him pretty well, sad day for the cobalt, not to mention his car smelled like shit after we raced and was smoking badly.

    Got one here in my town, with the same jackass attitude. As it usually ends, I raped him from a 40 shifting at 5 grand...(I knew there was no challenge)

    My friend's brother has one and we just put the Stage 1 and Stage 2 GMPP kit on it last night. All it needs now is to be tuned at a dealership and it should be pretty quick. A match for a modded F-Body though?

    Cobalt SS is far from any competition for a LS1..even w/ mods

    That's exactly what I was thinking, but the funny thing was, everybody who was there thought it was going to be a close race. Except my buddy with the '94 z28 and myself of course.

    The Cobalt is a great car for what it was designed for, but it's not competition for the LT1/LS1. I think that's only because of the choice of poweradder. The 2008 model should get the turbocharged Ecotec that is used in the Solstice GXP. Then things will get interesting. A turbo swap and you are dealing with a totally different animal. The little Eaton is not much of a threat compared to a GT30 or GT35R turbo.

    00 camaro ss

    why do you guys pick on your little brother. I have both cars, 00 camaro and an 06 sc ss cobalt. The cobalt is quick but runs a low 14 from the factory. The camaro ran a mid 13 from the factory.

    It sounds like this kid that you raced didnt know how to drive. Because with his mods, you shouldnt have stomped him as bad as you did. Well wait a minute what are your mods???
    00 ss camaro, 6.0 liter iron block, 4" callies crank, 4" Mahle pistons, Howards rods, Comp cam .598/.598, ported polished heads, Fast 90mm intake and tb flp headers and y pipe, lingenfelter muffler and tips, Maf, injectors, frame connectors.

    I raced my cousins Cobalt SS Supercharged with the stage II kit. My 98 T/A only has filter and exhaust and I have the 273 gears. I pulled hard on him from a dead stop, and kept pulling past 100 mph. from a roll it was about the same. No chance for him...

    I would love to have a Cobalt SS S/C (minus the ridiculous wing) to zip around town in. I'm sure it would get better fuel economy than my LS1, and its a hell of a lot smaller and more nimble.

    They are by no means competition for an LS1 though, at least not stock anyway.

    once again the kid obviously couldnt drive his car, because with the stage kit he should be running high 13's. And his 60' times should be better than yours. I can launch the shit out of my cobalt against ls1's. but where the lag is, is in 2nd gear.

    Dont get me wrong, you should beat him in the quarter, but not that bad.
