i think you counted wrong. i can see a 7.2 0-60 but 6.2 is kind of low. What gears do you have? Some Cobalt SS's are a bit slow (the N/A SS and the S/C SS but the turboed SS is pretty darn quick; 260 hp on tap)

Also, depends on the driver your racing. Sometimes its not the car, it depends if they can shift, know when to shift, are in the power band when they start, etc. Alot of people buy fast cars, but cant drive for POOP.

Street racing is completely different. When my trailblazer ss was stock the 0-60 was 5.4 sec, and there were a few cobalt ss's that took me from a roll. From a dig I could take them no problem because I had no traction issues with the awd. But once I got the intake, exhaust and tune. They couldn't touch me. Best time I have had at the strip was a 13.2 @ 106. But I have beat many 12.5 second cars on the street without a problem

if nobody else is going to call BS i will.. i surely dont think you beat a bwm roadster, or a cobalt ss. I had one for 4 months and i'll be damned to believe a BONE STOCK ranger with no tunes beat one. Not to mention the governor, our trucks shut down at 90-92 mph.

govn on mine either doesnt work right or what but i go well over 100 and the roadster and i raced about 1/2 mile we both were already doing 45-50 and ran out of road at about 98 mph. and the colbalt ss is the one thats black with the red strip and the loud ass muffler. ill take a video this monday when im on 380 pa. now the truck cold start first thing its only about 7.5 but after a half hour or so the times are like 6.5 and up and down sightly. never did i have the truck shut off before it was after 110 ive ran online what the gov is and it never made sense y mine doesnt go off on time. my dads truck does but mine doesnt. and who know maybe the guy in the roadster wasnt pushing it all the way down . ive been in stock mustangs that beat corvettes im not saying the truck is faster im just saying i raced them and won.

----------

my brother told me it has superchip in it?
