This was my first real engagement with another similarly quick car.
545AM on my way to work, 2 lane road. I am approaching a red light maybe 3 blocks up.
I saw a black car with non OEM HID's (maybe 8K color). Clean black SRT-4. Light turns green with me still approaching. I called up 2nd gear anticipating him to nail it.
SRT driver gooses it a second before me (with me starting 3 cars back).
My balt briskly walked right up to his rear bumper, i didnt even NLS third gear. I shut it down mid way through 3rd, SRT driver kept going, but its deer rut season around here, and on a 2 lane road. (triple digits + 6 point buck = no thanks)
We came up to another light and he launches pretty well, but I again cant leave at the same time or id rear end him. Top of second im on him already. I quit at speed limit, made my point already
He had to have been pretty stock, His exhuast was not sooty, and he didnt smell catless. I still love those neons. I recieved a few beatings from SRT-4's while i had my stage 2 WRX (2003) so it being able to pull him definetly made me smile.
