theres always a chance of things like that. but i seriously doubt it. supposedly the reasoning behind the srt4 not having the AWD system fromt he r/t model is due to the fact that the AWD system can supposedly not handle the power. its quite possible this is true, and dodge just didnt want to spend the money for R&D for a better AWD unit. Keeping the cost down.Lord Plye Wood said:Was the decision not to offer AWD in the SRT-4 Caliber part of a "non-competitive" agreement between Mitsubishi and Daimler/Chrysler, to avoid the possibility of draining sales from the upcoming Mitsubishi EVO X?
Not only that, but when you get the SS version with a S/C, the displacement of the engine is smaller.leakslikasieve said:the cobalt is a really nice car.. but with the sc its not as easy as just turning up the boost controller. turbos are easier in that sense. but the ss does handle awesome.. the steering is very numb though, you dont really get a sense of where the wheels are pointing. still handles though.
OK, why does that matter? Who the hell takes off with no hands on the wheel?srtman said:thats the only thing cobalt has up on the srt4 is handling which is a big thing. both slicks cars! and and the cobalt keeps a straighten path on tak off with hands off the wheel.
On paper, the magazines put the Cobalt very very close the the SRT-4, but in real life, from people that have raced them, it's not even close.Nytmare said:Anybody know what an SS does in comparison to an SRT-4 in the 1/8th or in the 1/4
I haven't done any research, but a friend of mine told me that the SS gets the SRT-4 down low, but then the SRT-4 takes over up top.
Having driven many SRT-4's and few Cobalts the Cobalt is not even close. Don't get me wrong the Cobalt is a nice car but as far as brute strength goes the SRT-4 rules.dommo_g said:On paper, the magazines put the Cobalt very very close the the SRT-4, but in real life, from people that have raced them, it's not even close.
