    Alpha 6/7 GTR VS Cobalt SS from hell

    My buddy Sythe Snake from Css.net with a 600+whp Cobalt SS. Too many mods to list but i'll tell you he has a BWs259 turbo. Now that is not a cobalt to mess with LOL.



    I've been procrastinating hardcore for putting this story up for like...3-4 weeks almost now. Click here to enlarge So let me get started.

    A buddy calls me up, and he lets me know that there is a guy who has a Alpha 6/7 gtr who wanted to run. I was like, well alright, I'm down. I thought it would be a GREAT test to see where the car is at against a real big boy car. So, I go home and wait for a buddy of mine to drop by, and another buddy to come by with his FP Red Evo X, and we drive up north to meet the guy. Evidently he is a rich guy who goes through cars like underwear. Click here to enlarge

    So we get up north, and we sit down at my buddy's place and have a short drink while we wait for him to come around. Around 30 minutes after I get there, a gray GTR pulls up, sounding rather amazing! Middle aged gentleman gets out and walks up, greets my buddy and we introduce ourselves. He's really nice, shakes hands, etc etc. Then a red integra GSR pulls up and two guys get out, and they introduce themselves and junk too. So there are quite the few people are cars around for the 'event'. Click here to enlarge


    So, we go out to the highway and the GTR takes the hell off like a bat outta hell! I tell the buddy I rode with that he has to get out and ride in one of the now two Evo X's that drove up. Click here to enlarge So we pull over and he does that, and we get rolling again. The GTR...takes off again, doing a sweet little pull. So I slowly creep up to 60mph, as we agreed to do a 60-1XX run.

    That is when the video kicks in Click here to enlarge









    So, to do my usual race descriptions. I honk it off, and he and I both hit it. You can hear that I start to spin, HARD and burn some tire off while pulling with him. Its hard to tell, but he pulls me by about half-3/4ths of a car while I'm spinning. I catch traction soon after and he stops pulling there! The GTR shifts, sounding crisp and clean as I run 3rd gear to my rev limiter. Then I shift my ass off and get into 4th! Still with him with my nose at his door/fender. I continue to wind out 4th, and he shifts, and I'm still with him! Fourth gear is slowly being wound down to an end and I try something I hadn't really done since my race with the Supra, and shifted into 5th to see what happened. The car surprised me and kept pulling, HARD! I look down almost instantly after I shift to 5th and my needle was pinned at 160+ and we were still pulling! the GTR is sitting at the same spot he was at, not pulling a single hair the whole time! So I'm winding out 5th and still not pulling on him, and he isn't going anywhere on me, so I decide that that was enough and let off.

    The GTR slowed down and he had a bewildered look on his face and gave me a huge thumbs up as well! So then we decide to do another one to see. There was 'honk' miscommunication and he took off a second before I did and had about a car roughly on me, and he let off when he figured he left a tad too quickly, but I held that car there too!

    GTRs aren't invincible...formula to beat them is good driver and about 100hp more to overcome the transmission. The GTR trans will only hold off a superior power:weight car to a certain point. This cobalt weighs MUCH less and possibly has more power plus the guy can drive

    Yea, I believe they're around the same hp. Cobalt has the weight advantage while the GTR has the faster tranny shifts.

    Ok, from what I remember Cobalts are incredibly light so that right there can account for the transmission magic of the GT-R's GR6...
    Very sweet setup. That car could be a money maker on the streets.

    Very true, and a RWD car with the same trans will have an advantage on it if it is lighter. I can think of one...

    Good race but would have preferred in car vid of course. Trailing vids don't really show the race all that well.

    Also just realized this GT-R is an Alpha 6 (or 7)....they make less than 600whp. To make 600whp with stock turbos you need E85 and a very strong tune with the turbos maxing out. On pump it is probably 550whp if even. Not taking away from the race. Just saying that the Cobalt definitely had more power than the GT-R. I'm sure the GT-R spools quicker and has a stronger power band and torque curve too.

    Definately fast cars. Not to take away from the Cobalts, but if anyone wants a history lesson of what a lightweight car with insane power and short gears is capable of on the highway - look no further than the honda community, they've been doing this since early 2000's. They just have to be 60-80mph + because of wheelspin lol.

    Yea, I just looked it up. I really thought it would have some bigger turbos but I guess it's just a fully bolted and tuned GTR. Funny tho, never would think to say a cobalt has more power than a GTR haha.

    Yes, definitely in the hondas. Once you see an intercooler on a honda, be ready to be raped usually. I have some long ass gears so not too much wheel spin for me, plus I have a boost ramp so I can actually get traction and put the power down Click here to enlarge

    Eh, just put tie straps under lower control arms to compress the front suspesion and raise the rear of the car as high as possible and put 12k springs in the rear to keep weight transfer over the front wheels. Simple as pie Click here to enlarge
