hi, im new here. im a v8 guy but i do like the cabalt ss and do see it becoming as popular as the talons. awd would help it a bit. i saw a cobalt fresh off the showrrom floor at a local track, tht was far from nice, runnin 14.8's spinning horribly. ill be following build ups and what not and wouldnt mind having one as a nice 12sec daily that gets 40mpg.
