Nah, I get it, its all about the humor and the power of sarcasm.

I am a fan of sarcasm, but it can be hard to tell with me when I'm being serious or sarcastic in text/ writing/ typing....

I ran the svt, I'll post the sheet when I get to it.


Numbers where 159 WHP and 152 TQ. Not bad for being 170 HP and 145 crank stock

Those were the ones I really liked. But only 17x9. I think that's too wide.

From the LT manual sedan to the LTZ the range for the sonic at base curb weight was around 2727 to just over 2800 at the base level. I don't know as I haven't been around long enough yet to know if you have the sedan or the hatch, but the hatch weighs slightly less to start from 2690 lb for the LS manual to 2776 for the LTZ manual.

The Cruze is over 3100 lbs though, so it is still a fair margin smaller weight wise. Close to 10% lighter than the cruze.
It's 2,745lbs just looked it up, Internet is always right...so yeah.

I have a sedan because the hatch is gross.

The width isn't really the issue, it's the shitty offset.
