Other guy got in before I posted this. Don't know how with the lecture he just copy and pasted from google.
I didn't copy and paste anything, I wrote that out long hand.

We did discuss the benefits of various power train combinations in university, but I will admit to not knowing absolutely everything about combustion theory. Just enough of the basics to be dangerous.

For those that didn't see it on Facebook, I had the Sonic on Johnny's mustang dyno today.

Put down 162/216.

I am perfectly relaxed at the moment. Who's to say I wasn't pretending to be "defensive" out of sarcasm? It did take a while to type up though, so to say that it was just copied and pasted off of the internet is a little bit strange, but anyway.

What else is news on this slow saturday afternoon.

That thing aught to be quick, what does it weigh, like 2600 lbs vs the 3300 for the same engine in the Cruze? That's not so bad after all.

2800ish is not quite as good as I would have hoped from the size of the car, but considering it shares much of its platform and development with the larger cruze it might not be quite as light as it should be based on the external size.

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.
