09 ss/tc vs 08 tiburon gt

on friday i raced a tiburon gt 3 times, and all three times i burned him. my car is bone stock and the tiburon had a cai from what i could here when we were going. first 2 races were on a main road 40 mph 2nd gear launch and i beat him both times by 2 1/2 cars. third race was on the highway 2nd gear 30mph launch( didn't have a chance to get it to 40 before he started blowing the horn) and he started 1/2 a car ahead. i burned him by 5 car lenghts. i got to 115mph and put the hazards on, there was no point to go any faster i already killed him.

didn't race from a dig. 40 mph launch and i didn't know the roads that well. i didn't know the stats on the tiburon, i always thought they were fast but i was wrong, i looked them up the other day it's only pushin 175 hp. the car is garbage.

not just 175 hp but a 175 hp V6 so its engine is heavier than the ecotec 4cyl and probably has as much hp as a cobalt ls horrible


im not sure the exact specs on the tiburon but ive seen and raced modded ones and they are just trash but yes i agree they do look fast lol but then again so do mustang gt's they are only high to mid 15 sec cars

basically what im trying to say is the cobalt ls is probably faster stock the the tiburon gt due to weight difference alone cause as far as hp they are about the same
