so pull up to an A6 at a light.. from a stop pulled him off the line then fucked up my second gear shift so he beat me.. so then we pull onto the highway...from about an 80 mph roll in 3rd gear we go again.. and i pulled away from about 80-110 no problems... how.. when a stock A6 is a V6 pushin 255 hp.. compared to my stock 180 haha...

guess it would depend on what year because so far from what i have been lookin into,the A6's are 16 second cars. They are nothing to brag about lol

More than likely he was a Quattro, meaning AWD... meaning that his 255bhp turns into 191AWHP... then tack on the fact that they weigh just over 4000lbs. Then you have the Formula for a slow car.

And then he simply could have added, "How does it feel to drive that Shitty GM Econobox?"

A6's aren't made for Speed. They are made for Luxury. ;) And lemme tell you, they are GOOD at what they do.

Not like it's anything but i kept up with a caddy cts In my 2.2L. Ok I was at a traffic light when this black cts with a mesh grills pulls up but i guess he wasn't sure he could beat me so he pulled up a little farther than me, so the light turns I take off and so does he and he didn't gain any ground on me but since he pulled ahead of me at the light he was ahead when the lanes murged into one now is that possible?

That made my head hurt.

And its a Cadillac... not a Corvette. They are made with the purpose of being luxurious, not speed demons (well, before the CTS-V, that was the case).

You can't be serious a cts still has more horse power than my 2.2liter. Regardless of what its made for it still has a bigger motor than the g5. You can't use that excuse for everything.

yes and it easily weighs twice as much as your car. Remember power isnt everything, go race a semi truck, they got huge motors with tons of torque. Or a freight train, they have 4300hp.

agreed A6= Luxury, G5=economy car, it's like trying to compare apples and oranges


and for the rest, I bite my tongue :)

with this one post, you've made yourself seem like you know nothing about cars. hp isn't everything. and in the end, you still drive a base economy car from gm, while he's relaxing in his cadillac. now you tell me who has the 'last laugh'.

i'm beginning to dread coming into this section more and more.

Oh, I forgot... weight plays no roll on Mother Earth... what am I thinking! http://smiliesftw.com/x/pat.gif

Seriously though... that Cadi probably weighs in closer to 4000lbs where as your base model Cobalt weighs in at just under 3000lbs. Weight makes a HUGE difference.

i know some one who test drove a cts.

they said it had a lot of power but didnt get off the line very fast.

one of the reasons he didnt get it....another...its overpriced

congrats on the win anyways. a win is a win

as long as it has a motor

You're cool. We aren't arguing. We're straightening out the facts. ;)

yea man...

i can believe that our cars beat it.

and i understand how you might have thought it wasnt possible because even i get caught up sometimes in thinking that its all about the motor. VERY wrong though lol.

How do you think I feel when a shitty looking 200whp Honda Hatch runs almost side by side with me??? Haha

Weight can do just as much damage as Horsepower can.
