Which will be faster stock, Cobalt SS or ION Red Line?

Recently there has been some debate about which vehicle will be faster from the factory. The lighter weight ION Red Line, or the Cobalt SS.

What do you think?

I do not think the weight will have that big of a difference and i thought that the Cobalt SS has a stiffer suspention so that will take car of the weight difference.

Only time will tell.

However apart of me hopes the SS performs better.

anyone know the actual weight of the redline yet? even if it was a 200lb. diference that's only about .2 in the 1/4 mile. But it will affect it more in the turns as the front will possibly have more push.

Our SRT-4 weighs in between 2964-2998 depending on what we have in it and thats with the driver in it. So in actuality the SRT-4 weighs in at about 2830 lbs.

But I think it was motor trend that trapped 98mph...but we coul;d never go by street measurement tools...lol

The Car and Driver article says the Cobalt has a new close ratio tranny and should be quicker than the ion redline.
