the SS s/c does handle as well as a stock foci and handles on par with the svt.

it is def a drivers race with the 2.2...

2nd_to_none: race a 2.4l with intake and tune in a balt...they will pull very well next to you

craze173 I work at a Chevy delearship and after driving them plenty of times on test drives I can honestly say those ers pull. It isn't as nice as the SS (supercharged) version, but still nice. If I didn't like the ZX3's styling so much I would be interested in getting one.

SVT_BMXer They arent bad cars, truthfully I'll say he will probably win or be near even. Im still waiting to find me an SS supercharged to run, im guessing also a close race.

my 5 speed cobalt weighs 2700..
