what about jeeps, well there not really SUV's but there pretty awesome to and for a completely stock vehicle you can't get another that can go where they can off road for the price after all thats the point of a SUV to be used like a truck and grocery getter and hauler and play

Alright, let’s not jump to any conclusions. Situations like this happen to the best of us no matter how experienced we are… Lets not all be so judgmental or I might have to get out the big club.

Uhhhh, I don't smoke my tires through the 1/8th mile. If you don't get traction after the 60' back off and get back in it when it hooks. Seems like a dumb move and I think because of the camera angle it looks like more of a sharp turn. The guy was smoking the tires all the way out of the gate, it doesn't take much for the back end to get around on you.

ok you bash a company that puts out a entire line up of performance vehicles because thats what enthusiast want
Well if the sarcastic OP wants to bash how a poor young guy drove his Camaro at the track, then I can bash his POS Charger all I want. And yes, Chrysler makes inferior products. Always have and always will. I don't care if it has a HEMI in it. I'll take my LS3 any day of the week over that garbage. And yes, the HEMI 6.1 does not belong in a Jeep Cherokee. Puhlease. It is like putting an LS7 in a Chevrolet Aveo. Are ya serious? Puhlease. Stick to crappy Chargers and Challengers. Thank God they got rid of those annoying Neon SRT's. Man those fart cans suck.

Sarcastic or not, an SUV can have great power, but come on, why put in a HEMI 6.1? Were the Trailblazer SS's that bad too? I'm not being judgemental. Just figures a Dodge guy would post that video here and call one of us out. The nerve. If you need to, close this thread. Nothing but feeding the troll anyway.

Some may ask why supercharge a Cobalt...cuz that crap makes no sense to me but I don't go off bashing Chevy about it..but anyway this thread is about the guy on the drag strip and his Camaro not SUV's..keep it on topic

ok so a TBSS is a waste to

and i've seen a ls1 in a cavalier converted to rw drive kinda cool, hey man i love GM to but i also like Mopar and thats it when it comes to American so im just happy to see that the companies still know there roots and want to please their loyalist if only the gov didn't get involved but thats a completely diff thing that doesn't need to be discussed here

Well, supercharging the Cobalt and keeping the highway MPG's 30-33 is not bad at all. I get 31 MPG's with my Stage 2 Kit. Instead of increasing the engine size, using a boosted application made sense. The car is much more manageable with the increase in horsepower. Now, taking an SUV with bad gas mileage to begin with and then really making it horrible by adding a HEMI 6.1, now your arguement has NO validity. Compare apples to apples and not apples to oranges. Alright, to keep this on topic, if you want to blow this out further, I'll start a new thread in the General section.
