hey guys i'm from edmonton, alberta, canada. i was wondering if any of u guys have raced a srt4, cause my friend has one but he doesnt want to race it because he is leasing it! i drove it and found it to be really quick off the line but looses a bit of power in the top end of each gear. now this is comming from a guy who has lots of mods on his car so i can't remember what my car is like stock.
thanks

Stock 4 stock the srt has the advantage, but most srt I have seen aren't stock. Is it going to stay that way?? no, I know better. The m62 eaton on the ss should have at least 15-17psi worth of boost, it should make a buttload of more power 250-300whp?? we'll see. The only problem I see with the ss is there's no real performance parts out 4 it, hopefully soon gm will get off it's ass and put out a pulley,injectors, and pcm. That's what I'm waiting for, I don't think I'll be a ss victum any time soon. You never know thou, someone is always willing to set the bar(nitrous), I just wish gm would get the ball rolling. That's coming from a srt owner, who is not stock and is pretty slow. :D

hey guys, I just got my first run-in with a cobalt...... and I wasn't even wanting to do it. I was praising the cobalt and this guy jsut kept talking chit about my SRT like it was some huge pile of crap, I blew that off the first few times, then he started pumping out false #'s, saying he has had it 14hrs so far and already tore another SRT4 a new one.
I kept saying nice ride, it looks good, I like this, like that, but he kept his bitching for no reason. Then his friend walked over and said, "So......do you really think that stupid orange neon is going to have any chance whatsoever against a supercharger?? Go look someone else jr. this is what the big dogs play with, run along now." end quote..... so I jsut turned my back to that guy while saying he had to be the most ignorant uninformed pile of a$$ I have ever heard, stating the Cobalt had more than 260hp to the front wheels, 18" rims made it faster off the line than a car with 17"s, the 2 less doors means its lighter, and the supercharger is larger than my turbo.
I told him that earlier in the week I had just pulled on a friends EVO and an STi from a roll, and to them I was wishing and dreaming lying out my behind and everything else.
We finally lined them up, he wanted from a 20 roll-80 we did this 4 times with the same result, I pulled a few car lengths on him every time and let off at 80 he kept it floored and did the usual flyby then claiming that he beat me2 of the 4 times because "the srt-4 lost torque in the upper rpm's and couldn't keep pulling faster" even though I hit 80, then tapped the brakes every time to let him know..... no I was wrong. This guy is awesome, everyone else around told him to shut his mouth but him and his best friend kept on, then with the lying afterwards. So next time there will definetly be video footage.
I told him about this site and was hoping that he would come in talking trash but I haven't seen him yet.
Oh yeah, he also told me a new Borla exhaust and pulley is going to put him into the low 13's possibly high 12's..... that's all only those mods nothing else. I will point him out once he joins so maybe someone can set him straight so he won't be such a douche. Just I try to tell him what I think he should do with his car, and because I have an SRT and he has owned the SS for 13 hrs. I have no idea what I am talking about and he knows everything.... I love these guys.

so what your saying is, he did not win by continuing to go after you already hit 80 and started slowing down?

lol the fact that it took 4 times for the guy to shutup says it all. and holy crap, a borla exhaust that will take 2.5 seconds off of a 1/4 mile time!! i'll take three


that story deserves to be posted up at www.ricermath.com for sure lmao @ that dude

i really wish the dns servers would update so i could get everyone to that site and get 'er running lol

Seen a few around my area but have yet to run one. Not like it would be very fair anyways but I do think stock for stock the srt-4 should pull up top.

That guy sounds like a butt stain. I love beating the snot out of someone who truely knows nothing about cars, but will tell you otherwise. He will spit out false info and when you prceed to whip his a$$, he will pull something like you stated above. Nice kill, always like to see stupid people lose!

exactly.... and I was trying to give his car some props but he just wouldn't hear it. One of those guys I guess. Soon as I started talking real specs on the two he started getting loud and obnoxious so noone could hear me.

It is nice to have some cool SRT-4 owners on this site. People like Orange Juice and Omega are restoring my faith in SRT owners.....cause there has been some real f__ktards on here. I hope there aren't to many a$$wipes making CSS owners look bad in any SRT forums.

This is an ok forum so far. Not many asshats. CobaltSS.net on the other hand, has at least one SS owner by the name of codyss who just needs to have an ass whoopin. He actually came here too, but hasnt posted much thank god.

Having both cars here, i try to correct misinformation, and show each cars strong points. Some people have thick heads though.

I knew I recongized that signature picture from somewhere :D! I tend to float between both forums but it seems there are a few trouble makers everywhere you go.

As for the original post I'll never get why some people are under the assumption that the SS can destroy an SRT-4, I think they need to look up what "horsepower" and "torque" means and maybe then they'll get a hint ;). A lesson on "turbo" vs "supercharger" might also help them along in realising the inevitable. I like both cars for certain features but when it comes down to pure power numbers the SRT-4 definitely takes the win, but I'm still a Chevy man all the way :p.

I don't understand why everyone just can't get along and enjoy their cars rather than being out to attempt to prove a point. It's nice to hear that you have an open mind and can see the SS for what it is even though you are an SRT-4 owner, we need more people like that around the forums not to mention on the road. I'm with OJ in that I'd rather just check out the car and cruise around in a big happy domestic group rather than bickering back and forth amongst eachother.

Now if only I could get my friend off my kick with his 2003 Neon I'd be in my happy place. I've talked with him about the mods I plan on making to my car and now he's freaking out that it will be running about 245hp (maybe more) and can't seem to live with the fact it'd be faster. I'm looking at doing it to have a customized car not to make mine "better" than his, just so I have something I can call my own...not so I can tear it around the streets of London trying to get myself killed. Apparently buying the LS still can't keep me out of the apparent Dodge vs Chevy battle :D.

Im trying to join you in the Misinformation society... It gets too crazy out there with the bashing. I have worked on SRTs' & I will be in the process of a swap, But I also like the SS, So im trying to push Wifey into it, but its hard to get here away from her Corolla S. If she doesnt give I guess I'll throw in a TRD Supercharger... :D
