I was driving the other night in my Cobalt LT at a casual 8 over the speed limit and I passed this spray painted Cavalier. As I got in front of it I heard their engine rev up so I threw it into 2nd gear and pulled far ahead of them.

My point was proven so after seeing a cluster of oncoming cars on the other side of the road I threw in the clutch at about 60 mph and just coasted. Then a little while later when it was obvious that I was slowing down I saw them pass by going probably 50.

Later on down the road there was construction so the passing/parking lane was blocked off. Because I go about 38 all around town and don't ever get pulled over I casually pulled up close behind them again. Once out of the construction zone they floor it again. I'm thinking to myself, "What are they trying to prove? I already showed them I could pull away from them easy." So I just sat back and watched.

All of a sudden a truck starts turning left off the road and I see those D'bags in the Cavalier slam on their brakes. It was pretty entertaining for me.

sounds like u ran into a 2.2l ohv one. an 03-05 cavalier with the 2.2 ecotec or the 2.4 twin cam (96-02)would've given you a run for your money.

03-05 arnt the only ones with ecotec.....


i have an 02 2.2dohc ecotec ls sport

pretty possitive i would kill any base model cobalt since i can keep up with a stock SS/SC wouldn't beat a SC but i can keep up with them. and for that reason i dont even like the the SS/SC im just gonna buy a SS/TC next year test drove a 09SS/TC this week and all i gotta say is chevy finally did a good job on a sport compact(I4).

to specify base model any cobalt that isn't TC'd or SC'd not trying to talk trash just saying you probably like one of the guys in here earlier said you probably raced a 2.2OHC non ecotec cav and yeh they are slower than me getting up in the morning.

really nothing k&n short ram intake w/ carbon fiber ram air functional hood (turbo sport), denso sparks, eibach sport line springs/ stock shocks, apexi high flow muffler... and i added a cool wing to weigh me down, 300watt kicker amp/ 12'' w3v2 JL sub, and a friend gave me a flash with hp tunner but i doubt it added much..

lol............ forgot to mention i have a 5speed but no.. my idea of keeping up is my bumper up to the SS's door after he leaves 2nd gear.

like i said ill crush any basic model cobalt (LS, LT w/e) and i can keep up with SS/SC (stock) they arnt that fast which is why i didnt by one 3 years ago.. now SS/TC would smoke me. the only car that i would say beat me by 10 cars lol well 3 seconds is my friends sti but that car well is a monster. I base my SS/SC comparison off of 3 drags maybe all 3 of the guys were bad drivers who knows.

only reason im even stating this is because im just debunking topic creator and one of the other posters basically writting the cavalier off as crappy but if they truly believe that the cobalt doesnt fall to far from the tree. having said that i acknowledge the SS/TC but not the SS/SC and i will be buying one probably next year.

idk why youre dogging the ss/sc.

s2 balts are beating tcs. with the new tvs swap, theyre killing the tcs. with a turbo swap on the lsj people are making some GREAT numbers. the lnf is a better engine stock vs stock to the lsj but with the lack of aftermarket support and a 320hp max turbo, im not, nor will i ever be sold on it.

as for you keeping up with ss/sc. are you s/c? you need more than a [email protected], plugs, and a muffler to even keep up with the 2.4 balts.

you most definately raced people that know nothing about driving cars. ss/sc is not the fastest car in the world, but it is no slouch, especially compared to its lesser twin, the cavalier

Hey flash, I don't know what is your deal. I didn't make this thread to dis the Cavalier. I made it because the Category was Cobalt Vs All and I race Vs a Cavalier and proved that I can kick his ass. You can take my words and twist them if you would like but then what does that say about you? I'm just saying...
