Raced Another Cobalt Today

more or less for shits and giggles up the rural road, it was my Brothers 2.2L LT automatic against my SSN/A 5spd.

I dont know how to race worth squat( I apperently granny shift?) but anywhoo we were doin 40Km/Hr and I did the 3horn beep and I dumped it down to 2nd(I dont really know best gears to drop to I just always drop to the next lowest lol)

anyways I killed him, it was amusing but we just wanted to do it out of curiousity... I heard people saying the 2.4 is a lot like the 2.2 but I outright owned him, and hes an an auto, so no drivers race there, just floor it... and I dont even know how to drive competitively .. oh and no mods to either car.

Yes yes street racing is stupid and I dont do it, but it was late down the 10km long flat raod, we were bored lol and thought I would share

I still would have said "we went to the track" lol, but good stuff. my old cav 2.4 was NO faster than the 2.2 IMO so I can see where the rumor may have come from.

The old 2.4 was only a 150hp and the new one I think is around 175???? I raced a Z-24 cavi with the 2.4 and I won by almost a car length.....
