There was a huge cruise this weekend 30+ cars. 5 Neons from the Chicago land SRT-4 club came down to race the Bloomington/Normal areas fastest imports.
They all got owned, there 2 fastest ones got beat badly by a 500AWHP stealth and a 500whp 300z. They both pulled 10 car lengths on there fastest one. Which was stage 3 on race gas with NOS. All of these runs were done from 60+mph.
I'm AP stage 2 with stock catback and IC hoses/short shifter. I raced a SRT-4 from a roll with CAI and catback and pulled 2 cars on him from 60-100mph 3 times in a row.
I raced a stage 1 SRT-4 with a few other bolt on and he pulled maybe a quarter car on me from a roll.
I raced 2 SRT-4 from a dig-80mph, one of them was stage 3 with a open DP that sounded like a shotgun going off. I pulled 2 car lengths on the stage 3 to 80mph but he was catching and 4+ on the other one. I only launched at 3.5k.
Next up was a EVO it had CAI, catback and the guy wasn't sure what else it had but claimed it was stock boost. He bought it 2 days before, First 2 runs we start in 2nd at 50mph 4.5k or so and I pulled almost a full car each time to 80-90mph. Then we went again in 2nd at a lower speed 40mph at around 3.5k and he pulled about the same on me both times. I guess gearing or having it at the right rpm played a big factor here.
Then I raced a AP stage 2 WRX wagon a 05 mine is a 03. We went from 60mph to 110mph and I pulled 2 cars. The black stage 3 Neon ran with us and pulled 3-4 cars on me.
Then I raced a 16g 1g DSM which is fast when it runs right and beat me by 4 cars from 50-120mph.
Overall a fun night and a great cruise loads of fast cars.
