I went up against one of those monsters just a couple weekends ago at the local track here called 75-80. I'm currently running cobb apv2 stage 2 maps on my sti and the first run I finished a tenth of a second faster then the srt-8 STOCK. Those cars are monstrous, you dont even need to use the tiptronic. Just leave that ***** in automatic and slam the gas. The second time we got matched up together he actually beat me because I had a bad launch, it was pretty embarrassing lol.

I knew this one guy with an srt8 one time ...

I don't think I'd have to much problem with one. Doesn't seem that fast really.
I had a hard time finding STi's beating the Jeeps. That is why i posted this thread, to see who has had experiences beating one, etc.
I'm sorry I didn't research it enough to know those were modded Jeeps, my bad.
But honestly, 2.0, I would like to see you race a stock SRT8, then get back with me/us. I don't mean it in an offensive way, but seriously man those Jeeps are not slow by any means. Do you think you could beat one? Seriously?
Do me a favor please, find me all the posts by me where I come up with this "weird" scenarios of cars losing to others? What other stories are you thinking of, besides the issue with Audi's S4, S6, etc etc? And also, I am obviously not considering my car in any type of race whatsoever as currently I am only a weak Stage 1, nothing to write home about. I don't have the massive power you do...

lundholm, dont worry about it. He's speaking out his ass. I own an sti with many of the exact same supporting mods as he does and I'm telling you that those cars are fast as ****. I'm actually not sure whether the srt-8 I raced at the track was in fact stock. He could have had headers n exhaust work done that I didnt know about but his car was by no means slow. Sure I beat him off the line but man once we started going through gears he started pulling like a mother ****er.
