The stock cobalt ss that i have seen race only hits hi 14s with street tires. You may be able to beat him off the line, but after the 60ft mark you are toast. but you can always make fun of the guy and say, "witch one of your parents paid for that ride". That one always gets them pissed because 9 times out of 10 thats how they got the car.
that's how my buddy got his s2000.... :/

I know we had a member on here that raced a SS/TC with a boosted SVT and beat him by a length, but a stock SES, not happening.

no, it would be a drivers race. the standard ss package is just for looks, it has 140hp the same as the focus.

yes cobalt ss N/A is a 2.4L with 171hp quite quick..
05-08 ss supercharged 205 hp ( I own one of these along with my boosted zx3)
08+ is turbo ss with 260 hp Also comes stock with no lift shift and launch control.

Stock focus Including the svt should lose to a supercharged cobalt everytime.

ps. Most supercharged cobaltsare gm stage 2 now days. 550 dollars makes your 205hp cobalt 240hp

Yea, no way an SES beats the S/C Cobalt. It might hang with the N/A version. I have beat 2 of the S/C ones rather easily but have yet to run a turbo, that would be fun.

I only beet the ss off the line, but i destroy the regular one. All i have added is the steeda air intake. I also have a 5 speed and that gives me 5-10 hp on the automatic. and all of this really depends on the driver, not always the car.
