I am just curious what everyone has done against these cars. I have only run up against a 96-98 GT and one 99 and up GT... I beat them both... I wanna know how everyone else is doing... Keep it real. No flaming please.

Haven't had a chance at one yet. But, I hear you guys are pretty quick. I will try hard when I do get a chance. Which SRT-4 are you in (what car)?

I did..


Sorry, no numbers, just on the street. He was quick through 1st, hung throught the first half of second, but then I pulled hard, and continued through 3rd.

They are quick little boogers, though...

I've run a couple... they're quick, but not a problem for 05/06. Can't speak for 99-04, I'd think the mustang would win but it'd be closer. SRT should take a stocker that's older than that.

I timed your avatar... seems he runs about a 2.30... quick little guy

I got beat by one the last time I was at the track. It was far from stock... the thing was running 1.8 60's and was in the mid/low 8s. I think he had drag radials on the front, and it had the loud woosh going on, not sure what all he had but it was fast.

Raced one, 3 rolls. (I took 2 out of 3.) Gotta give'em credit, he took the first one because I took him lightly. He kept up ok until we hit higher speeds where it appears that the motor ran out of breath.

They definitely pack a good punch. They can easily hang with some stock 99-04 GTs, I would get cocky if I was in a "CAI and catback GT." The SRT-4s can raise boost and pick up a few ponies with breathing mods all for fairly cheap. Of course the LS1 puts them in their place :winks

0-1 when i was stock geared. totally blew me away and he was factory stock.

0-2 with the 3.73s, but at least they had to catch me off the line. last one i raced was from a fourth gear roll and he was barely creeping on me and passed me when i let off.

haven't had the pleasure of racing one yet...as long as I don't get caught by surprise I shouldn't have to play catch up. Those cars are tight, I give them respect for being able to take out alot of cars above their class (4 banger vs 8 banger). Would of bought one if the dealer had what I wanted...but the next day I bought my Mach...small world ain't it. Raced a wrx though, and I know they're only slightly faster than them, and I beat him pretty good from a dig so I should do well against an SRT-4.
my streak of not getting killed by a 4 banger was broken yesterday when an STI flew by me like I was standing still...We both punched it and I rode 6th gear up until about 6k rpm and then had to upshift to 5th...well I shifted and we started going down hill and it was like my car was stuck at 130 the whole time we were going downhill so he just flew by me after that...I love turbo 4-bangers...gave him a nod, thumbs up, and a wave as I got off my exit...pretty cool guy...just felt a lil bummed my streak was ended...

Don't like the sound of that one bit! Please say you were in the Ranger.

Thanks for not flaming at all guys. It's nice to hear some stories. Keep em coming. This car is pretty quick. But it's no where near as fast as my mustang. I have a ways to go before I even get close. But it is a fun car to drive around. It just has no torque until you punch it. That's really the only thing that kills me.

Um, Yorchi, have you been drinking....again?:winks


I had an srt-4 take a run at me from a roll. We came through a light onto an open highway at about 40, he had been eyeing me in traffic, but was about 5 car lengths behind me when we finally got clear enough to go. I was watching him in the mirror, and I'd guess we nailed it about the same time. I only dropped it to third and kept my foot down. We ran up to about 90 before he slowed to exit. I might have pulled a little distance on him by that point, but not much. He sure wasn't catching me though.

Oh, that was before my cold air and tune. I think had I nailed second, the gap would have been bigger, but I was impressed. Don't know what mods if any he had.

Zero, zip, nada. Jeez, I guess I probably don't want to. Did take a 350z though.
