    First race First loss

    I was driving home from a party tonight when i pull up behind an SRT-4 with a Mopar Stage 2 badge on the back. I pull beside him and he starts dancing, and im just about ready to downshift and have at it, when the light ahead of us turns red. I roll down my window and shout "nice car", he seemed like a cool guy after all, and he nods in agreement. Well, i got a poor launch (im new to this, i'll learn) but still pull ahead of him to where he's just behind my rear bumper (i <3 AWD). After i hit about 40 he pulled hard and just plain raped me from there. I shut down 'round 70 and we parted ways.

    Didn't expect to win, and actaully preformed better than i thought i might. Good fun.
    thank you/sorry to whoever i swiped the avatar from.

    Im guessing youre stock. If you are stock you had no chance in hell even a stock SRT would leave you in dust.

    EDIT checked your profile. Even if youre stage 1 you have no chance with stock SRTs.

    Yeah, because we all know interiors win races!
    BTW. SRT-4's are slow!!! I used to love beating up on them.

    FANBOYS huh...... Ne way.... I usually donīt indulge in this Brand vs Brand banter, but I hope you are not implying Dodge or for that matter ANY US car manufacturer started the whole turbo 4 cyl thing.... If so you need to do some research. FHI hence Subaru has been using turbine apps pretty much since they stopped building Zero fighter planes, and building 4 cyl engines while Dodge and all other US manufacturers were into 6&8 cylinder big displacement cars way before the 80s. So no offence to Neons (SRT is a cool car) but dodge did jump BACK on the 4 cyl sports sedan with the SRT AFTER the WRX caught on....
