I've been informed by more urban individuals that drug dealers really like them because they can easily run from the cops in them. 2.0 turbo awd cars and all :P

I bought mine this way, but I like the look and the hx40 turbo with a 2.4 hybrid makes for pretty good times at the track. 12.6 @ 105 on street tires and 14psi, will be turning the boost up to 30 very very soon and looking for high 10s

I wouldn't run from the cops and expect to get away in a DSM without it breaking down first.

I don't think 10's are in the cards with that setup unless your GVR4 is stripped down to nothing and you are at sea level with a flawless 7k launch on 4 DRs. Just my opinion.

Cochese,

tell me about the blazer. . . and compare it to your stage II allroad for me.

I also have a stage II allroad and I'm thinking of the SAAB 9-7x aero as a replacement. It's the same as the trailblazer SS with a few better creature comforts and slightly upgraded suspension. BUT I'm afraid I'll miss the allroad when it's gone

I like them both for different reasons. The Aero doesn't come with better suspension or any other options available with a 3SS TBSS. The TBSS has adjustable rear suspension, same engine, available nav, dvd etc. The only difference I can think of are HIDs and fancy Saab cupholders.

My allroad is a different kind of fun to drive. I added Hotchkis sway bars and dropped it via the 402 mod. The SS handles as well, maybe better. The SS brakes better. The SS is about as fast acceleration wise. Both top out around 140-150 mph. The allroad gets better mpg but not by much. They hold the same amount of cargo except the SS doesn't have a roof rack. (I think the Saab does have a rack).

I say keep the allroad and buy a TBSS. Probably 10k cheaper than the Aero.

12.6 with or without the trunk full of drugs?

I have never seen this model, guess they didnt sell it here in Europe. But looking at the data - awd and turbo - I do think it would be a waste of money to just use it for quarter mile races. It would be a very car for a "real" racetrack.

in a perfect world, that's what I'd do, but the allroad is coming up on 200,000 miles this month, and even though I do the repairs myself (mostly) it's getting to the point of costing what it's worth. It's going to need a timing belt again, water pump, diverters, cam seals, etc, etc. . .and the turbos are original.

And there's the fact that we're a 3 car garage with 4 cars and a motorcycle already (and I'm looking at quads for the kids). If the kids were older, I'd keep it for them, but there's 8 years before the oldest gets her license.

That mileage changes my opinion.

If you can find an Aero cheap, go for it. Personally, It'd get a silver TBSS and toss in some HIDs and save 10k.
