I love the fact that people look at my car and say "its just a cobalt". i like to drive on the highway a find someone with an old ass neon/civic with a 5 inch ricer exhaust and nothing else that thinks its fast. they are my favorite ones to show my SS badges to as i pull away on them. Just the fact that our cobalts are very under estamated makes beating them that much better. I just went to atco this weekend to settle my grudge with my friend from work, nothing like seeing his mustang with the 302 in it, headers, exhaust, intake, cam, and new gears that he worked on for years lose to me after all the shit talking he did. Any one else have some stories about thier cobalts beating anyone unexcepted?

Hondas suck anyways....

Yeah speaking of "just a Cobalt", how about rolling through town at about 45 and a screaming honda pulls alongside. :rolleyes: You glance over and nod at the jerk and pull away from him... in 4th gear! :D His car is about to explode while hes trying to pull out at about 8 grand, and ol' yeller just keeps goin' west bound and down.... The cobalt has great "holeshot" torque even in the higher gears.

lol im not talking bout srt-4s orlando!!! i have respect for any car that can hang with or beat me like yours. My friend with the 302 ran a shitty 15.5! im not sure but i think he actually is making his car slower or something isnt hooked up right cuz with all the work he has done to it a 15.5 is terriable. My best time is only a 14.8 but i have only had my car for a month, been to the track twice, and am a novice driver. and i still beat him. it dosnt make sense to me

maybe with all his money, he made more show than go! money only makes it faster if it's put together the right way.

WOO HOO!!!! :D 14.8 that sure is blazing fast. I can see how those silly honda & neon drivers would tremble in fear :confused:
come on now, he was just probably excited about his victory, (and he should be)

He was probably referring to the riced out base model neons with the erector set spoilers and unpainted body kits that seem to frequent the roads nowadays.

Also, a 14.8 for a any stock honda would not exactly be a cakewalk. I mean the S2000's could do it, but i don't know many stock civics that hit 14's.

i said i ONLY ran a 14.8 and also admited i was a novice driver. and yeah thats enough to walk over the old POS neons and civics on the highway that sound like shit. sorry for enjoying beating those who waste their time "hooking up" thier old beaters

Wow, I'd make fun of 302 guy too... considering the 400hp neighborhood is reachable with great heads, headers, and different rocker arms... add a cam into that and whatever else, even with mild heads the guy should be right around 400/400

Well good kill. 14.8 is kinda slow in the quarter for the cobalt isn't it? I ran a 14.4 stock @ 99. :)

A 302 with that much work should have beaten you. I think they run mid 15s stock. if he ran a 15.2 with that much work, he's either a horrible driver or something is wrong mechanically.

Yeah i agree, the car stock should have hung with me a lot better. Its not his driving, im friends with the guy and i know he can drive. we have been trying to figure out whats wrong with it, we think its the tuning, his air to fuel ratios are set up like he has a supercharger, but he dosen't. he found a shop that will tune it for him then we can race again and see what happens.
