You also have to remember that Chevy is more of the low end of GM's models. Also GM is placing Saturn more in the the sporty end of the spectrum along with Pontiac.

The gearing on the Rl and the SS are the same. They were supposed to be different but the trans kept breaking on the SS. I can't wait to find my first SS on the street.

Yeah, the brochures just came into GM yesterday when I went to order my car and that is the weight it lists for the SS. Car and driver had it around 2993lb for some reason....no idea why.

If that is the case, it appears to me that either the car didn't hook up very well @ launch, or it really has some power in third gear.

What makes me think this is that I've read about numerous stock SRT-4's running 13.8-14.1's @ 98mph... (verified with videos)

Let's average here:

Stock SRT-4 1/4 mile: [email protected]
Cobalt SS S/C 1/4 Mile:[email protected]

Someone just said they weigh almost the same..... Same trap speed, a half-second ET difference.

Something just doesn't sound right

Of course, I'm no 1/4 mile pro, but those are my thoughts.

I'd like to see the slip! If someone has the issue, post the 60', 1/8th, 1000' and 1/4 times here please!

Guys... it's the SAME CAR!!!! It has the same short ratio tranny, it has the same supercharger with the same intercooler with the same engine, with the same suspension, with the same wheelbase, with the same equal-length half-shafts, with the same LSD option. If anything makes one faster than the other it's the large wheels vs small wheels. Don't take what most of these mags say. Keep in mind that Sport Compact Car couldn't get the Redline to break a 7 second 0-60, yet C&D did a 6.3. They said the change to 3rd gear was holding it back. Change to 3rd??? How come my Redline dosen't need 3rd to get to 60? The magazines will say that the Redline is not as good as the Cobalt becuase it's a SATURN! If one of you has a stock Cobalt SS at some point, and we run 10 1/4 mile drags, I doubt VERY highly that anyone monitoring the results would be able to tell a difference.

Right on Sp00ner
I think that with the near identical similarities with the cars it is going to be driver.

Wait a tick, same same same right? Does that mean they are going to have the same bolt pattern??

I would assume so, but I'd stick with the 17's....
