Got her out on the course for the first time. Vettes and Mustangs were easy but those damned Cooper S's!!! HH

HH,

they are great looking cars. When they first came out I took one on a test ride and thought that they were "under powered". I don't remember if it was the Saturn or the Pontiac, have they made any changes in the drivetrain since their debut?

Yes:
Solstice GXP and Sky Redline = 260hp Turbo ecotec 4 cylinder.

Quite right. The stock Sky and Solstice is around 170hp. Mine's a Redline and with the intake and exhaust it should be good for about 270. My best (and I'm far from a professional driver) is 0-60 in 5.7 seconds and I'm at 6000 feet. It should do around 5.3 at sea level. HH
