I have never heard of these until I got home and read about it. I stopped at a light and this matrix pulls up next to me and then the light went green and I took off normal not wanting to waste my gas on a matrix. He took off quick and I noticed he was shifting hard so it was a manual, that's when I saw the XRS. Well this bothered me that the guy thought he was fast in a Matrix, came to the next light and noticed that my lane was going to end, so I know he was going to go and I was going to get in front of him. Well light goes green and then we both floor it and he is at my door through first. I was stunned that he was still there, I thought maybe I wasn't getting the pedal all the way to the floor. I shifted to second and then got enough on him to get over and then stopped because I accomplished my goal. I was still dumbfounded that a matrix could keep up with me. Found out they are six speed, 180hp, but don't hit most of there power until after 6,000rpms. Still thats crazy a Matrix has 180 hp, I can't get over it.
