Sad thing is, they still can barely get out of their way. They're only fast once you modify them some, they cost a lot, and yeah. Great Idea, and fun as hell to drive, but not an SS contender by anymeans.

It'* perfectly acceptable for me to say that. That kinda power in that car car should move much better. I read up on them all the time when they came out, and the only one that impressed me had a vortec csc on it.

your forgetting that the car weighs 4200 lbs, for a 4200 lb sedan it moves pretty darn good (14.7-15.3 is pretty good for 300 hp in a 4200 lb car)

Not sure about the quarter, but the Marauder goes from 0-60mph in 7.5 sec., which is a second slower than the old 94-96 Impala SS.

Keep looking and eventually you will find the one you want. It just takes time sometimes. Good luck with the search.
