SS? its tough since your car already at disadvantage in power and weight, if your TL is AT then I would recommend trying to beat him in first 3 gear I am certain you will lose the race as soon as you shift into 4th. BTW if the chevy is non SS then it not worth your time and gas, also make sure to do this in a safe environment.

It's a bone stock 4 banger that makes half the horsepower I make. It's no competition the cobalt has no mods.

are you serious?
dont waste your time and gas.


you have a high output v6. pushing at least 215hp to the front wheels.

a little tiny cobolt non-turbo is pushing like 96hp at the most.
