    Link on my post's Title...
    More like driver error than a problem with the SS. The article admits the driver couldn't launch the SS properly. Also, the article listed a 98 lb. weight advantage for the WS6 Formula (interestingly, they list the SS's weight as 28 lbs. heavier than my loaded 2000 when stock--but then again, they were testing 1999 models). Nevertheless, that weight difference shouldn't have made as much difference as the article's test results. Perhaps they used their fat driver in the SS? What many of those magazine articles don't write is that they do not use the same drivers for all their tests.

    Regardless, The Rookie does have a cool girlfriend! My wife nearly freaks out if I drive much harder than "babying" it.

    correct the 1le strippers are the lightest F-body you could get. There is a guy in my area that used to post here that had one. sucker was light and fast.

    Any weight advantage would of been taken away by you having a passenger, also Formula Firehawks have the best Power to Weight ratio of all the cars... i'm a lucky sob... but I did add a trans am spoiler on the car, damn 12 pounds heavier now :P
