Even the TE isn't slow. Let them drive a 1.6 VW for a week. That's what I do.. I switch back and forth between the slow car and the slower car... it makes the slow car seem really quick!

Indeed. When I had a 240 as a daily driver my 300 felt like a rocket.

The person making the claims would not surrender the made/model of his car.


Sources close to him tell me that he owns a Dodge Neon SRT-4.

Cute. I spank those with a stock US Spec 560SEL nearly once a day! Now those Cobalt SS's... now those you have to worry about.
