cobalt needs what to beat an evo mr???

What do you guys think it would take to beat a stock Evo mr with a cobalt ss/sc from a dead stop? Would a stage 2 kit get you close?

i think stage 2 and a tourque damper would be all you need to beat one. it would all depend on how well you launch. if its from a roll all he will see are your taillights

You'll need more than stage 2 to take an MR from a dig.

don't believe what everyone says on the internet especially when that has to do with "kills". also, a 5mph roll is a lot different than a straight up dig.

Ok not bashing your car but it will take alot. When I ran stage 2 in my srt-4 the only way I could edge out an EVO or STI was to run on slicks. Their all wheel drive launch is very tough to beat. Get the GM stage 2, full exhaust, Intake, torque dampers. Find some 15 inch steel wheels and get a set of Micky Thompsons. This should be enough to outrun a stock EVO from a Dig but if it's got mods, well you can't win em all.

Thats what I was thinking also, same as an STi, the awd launch is almost immediate. Compared to our fwd and weight transfer which = wheelhop and traction loss, we may walk it down, but take off would have to be immaculate.

i raced an STI from a dig ( yes it was an STI) and he got a huge jump on me off the launch... but we knew that would happen but after i got into 2nd gear he was still pulling on me but it wasnt anything crazy. i lost by about 5 cars and more then half of that came right off the luanch i think if i had stg2 i could have ran him down. now i kno evos are faster then sti's but i would think stage 2 would at least keep him close if he got a good luanch
