um no... because my SRT stock has more than double the power of our xB2 and its a low 13 second car while the HHR SS was a 14 second car.
Itd be close, considering it's 15 seconds out of the box

That bottom nut came on contract with something. A big chunk of it is gone. What's left of it is fused to the bolt. Sawed that itch off.

No it wasn't making any sound. That was just part way through pulling it apart.

It feels better already. Anyone who hasn't done it should order them now.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

No pic, but the wife and I both drove our xBs down to Anaheim for the weekend. I competed in the MECA SQ comp at Extreme Autofest and got second in my class.

I don't think I'll ever go to an Extreme Autofest again.

Why wouldn't you do it again? Sounds like it was a successful gig.

The event is not conducive to a sound quality competition. They stacked the SPL cars right on top of the SQ cars which made judging a nightmare. The MECA folks did a great job working with what they were given, but the the conditions provided by EA were not so good.

The organizers were also rude in the very small amount of interaction I had with them. In addition, I had to pay a $10 parking fee to the stadium parking people despite the fact that I had paid $45 to preregister for the show. This was not the case for all attendees. Neither the show organizers, nor the parking people could give me a straight answer about a refund and just placed the blame on the other party.

If the spectator fee wasn't $20 and the food prices weren't completely outrageous I might consider attending the event without showing my car. For SQ comps, I'll stick with the ones not associated with larger shows where they are treated like an afterthought.
