    Ya, that cobalt won overall. This is old news guys :)

    The Evo's did pretty well in AWD classes. :)

    that's a completely different thing. the thing with the skyline and cobalt and jetta was on the speed channel.

    I contend that the only reason the cobalt was that fast was because John Heinricy was driving it.

    The only reason John Heinricy was driving it was because of GM's backing.

    They had to do something impressive so the cobalt could break into the "tuner market".

    There is no way it hung with them in the straights though.

    yeah maybe thats the problem
    the test was biased
    REAL performance is measured in a straight line

    I think the problem was that it was an 05. If it had been a 2000-2002, it would have come in 0th, because not even 1st would have been good enough.

    i'm going out on a limb here, but i'm pretty sure it was the supercharged K24 that was in hondatuning or something a while back

    EDIT* http://www.hasport.com/News/Projects/1988%20CRX.htm

    and oh yeah, looks like the gm performance division guys know what they're doing :mrgreen:


    EDIT AGAIN* http://forums.superstreetonline.com/photo/...oto=898&cat=548
    the engine is sticking out of the hood. definitely a k, possibly the super k24.
    i think i have the mag that car is in.....
