Please have him remove that wing, and get one of the M3 style lip spoilers off an E46, they are on Ebay cheap, and look WAY WAY better.

I doubt the ST will be as fast at the SS Turbo stock for stock. The SS is a performance bargain for sure. The ST will be much nicer to DD, but in an all out battle, the SS will almost surely outperform it.
A. lighter (probably)
B. more power

Posted via FF Mobile I have to agree, I mean we gotta wait and see the specs, but those cobalt turbos were no joke. Night and day compared to the previous s/c version. They didnt just add a turbo ecotec, they tuned the hell out of the suspension and made the whole thing stiffer. 0-60 in 5.6 seconds, fastest Ive seen was 5.5. It held the title for quickest fwd car on the Nurburgring until a Renult took the crown, but it was pretty much a glorified race car that just made it to street worthy status. The Cobalt you could actually drive day to day. Well have to see what the ST brings out. It might be able to kill the SS in the handling department if they do indeed put a version of revoknuckle on it, I have no doubts the chassie is stiffer then the cobalts either. But what will be the deciding factor besides weight, is how quick will it be. I will be surprised if it does 0-60 in 5.5 seconds, although very happy, but Im going to estimate like 5.9?

BUT thats between you and your boy. In the real industry comparison itll be the ST vs the Cruze SS if it ever comes out...and in that match I think the ST will come out ontop as the better car. The cruze is a FATTY!

I think I read somewhere that the ST should have a 0-60 in at least 6.0 seconds flat. So We'll see, might be even better which would be nice. The handling should be better than the SS and I'm curious if they will come out with a Cruze SS.

As far as I can tell the ST will be more like a mix between the Cobalt SS, MS3, and GTI.
Cobalt because it will genuinely be high performance and have a 2.0T
MS3 because of the size and shape, 6 speed manual, etc...
GTI because it should be very nice quality and more refined than the Chevy or Mazda

It can/should be able to accomodate potential buyers of all kinds of hot performance compact.

RevoKnuckle

This article says it will get the RevoKnuckle.

"The Recaros will be optional. What won’t be optional are the ST’s performance enhancements. A retooled suspension employs new stabilizer bars and more. It’s “much more than just different spring rates,” Hughes said. Ford’s RevoKnuckle suspension technology — integrated into the strut front suspension — allegedly mitigates torque steer, which threatens powerful front-drivers like the Focus ST. We’ve heard a dozen times of some magic bullet for torque steer, so we’ll have to drive one to believe it."
