nastyblacksrt said:Get a WRX. You can get a brand new Rexer for the same price as the cobalt. Expandabilty of the car is greater, aftermarket support is greater, the WRX has a legacy behind it, AWD is a plus, stock motor is capable of almost 500awhp. Oh yeah, when equally powered to a FWD car the WRX will guarantee you an almost 1sec quicker quater mile. Did i mention it was turboed and AWD?
Thats bullshit. plain an simple. Your telling me that equally powered, equally modded 1g talons. The FWD will win in the quater?? No buddy its almost a 1 second difference. The AWD car will be damn near half way down the track while the FWD car is trying to gain traction. I grew up around JDMs, the caribbean is a turbo fanatics dream. I have two friends, 1 has a 420awhp nissan pulsar the other has a 430whp nissan sunny( the american sentra) with a SR20det wap. Both cars are equally powered with the same motor, please give me a logical explanation why the pulsar runs 11.9 all day on street tires and the sunny cant manage to get over 12.6-12.8CoBIZZLE said:1 whole second or a .1 of a second, cause havin AWD will not give a WHOLE second, I have heard of people in older AWD turbo Talons converting them to just FWD and runnin FASTER because of the weight difference!!!
I beg to differ on that one. Among other conditions,drive a WRX in 7 inches of snow and say that. But I do know a lot of research went into the suspension of the Cobalt. It's a win-win situationand dont think just cause the WRX is AWD that it will handle better
