Ever have one of those weeks were everything goes just right? A buddy I work with just bought an new 06 Cobalt SS/SC. He was real excited and had to have me drive it. It was a nice car. Bright red, nice interior, loaded! Well we're cruizing an happen on a Volkwagen GTI. Young guy was driving, maybe late teens early 20's. Anyway he must have thought he had something special, because he's looking over at us and starts reving! My buddy asks me if I thought I could take him? I say it's your car what do you think? He says lets find out. I throw the GTI a few revs back and we line up for the 30 MPH roll. He guns it's before I can get the first honk in. So now I have to play catch up. By the time we hit 80 it looks like the farfignugen has run out of the GTI. We fly by him like he hit the breaks. We get a couple bus lenths on him and shut down. Well the kids not done yet he want's to go from a dig now! He doen't have a clue. We honk 3 times and I nail a perfect 2000 RPM launch! The GTI drivers nails a perfect 5000 RPM launch LOL. He spins so bad it wasn't even a race. I shut it down after I get 5 bus lenths on him. He pulls up and laughs & asks what we got in that thing. I point over to my budy and say I have 240 pounds of extra dead weight in it and thats it. We pull over and bullsh*t for 20 minutes about cars. He was shocked it was a brand new car with no mods. Needless to say my buddy is happy with his new car and we have a great story to tell at work!

Actually I was impressed. This was the first time i've ever driven a Cobalt. Bone stock it was fast. It didn't just beat out the other car it destroyed it and it was still green.

Yeah that's impressive. A little driver mod stage 10 doesn't hurt either.

That's the other thing that's surprising. It was still brand new!

Pretty impressive that your first time launching the Balt was perfect. Good kill.

The Cobalt launches like my srt-4 for the most part. The wheels and tires on the SS might be even more silly for drag racing than on an srt-4. Most people I think want to just drop the clutch and go but to get a competive advantage feed the car RPM's as you slip the clutch to the point of wheel spin but don't let the tires break loose. There's guys (and girls. had to throw that in since PSI chick has started visiting this forum:) )That can run with more powerful cars like mustangs because they've learned to launch their car.

If the aftermarket would get in gear it would be very possiable. I hear there is a twin screw supercharger on the way that would make over 300hp. and i've even hear of a kit that would convert the supercharged engine to turbo charged.
