    Do both of yourselves a favor and take it to the dragstrip. If you get pulled over racing I can tell you 2 things. One, if you beet him, he won't pay up. Two, you will end up out the $1000 even if he does pay up. (ticket, insurance premium, and possible impound)

    On a strip a good driver of an SRT4 in bone stock form on street tires can run high 13's. With the mods he is claiming (not sure who the hell actually runs 4inch exhaust on an srt4) On street tires he could possibly run 12.8-13.2 if he's a good driver. A good srt4 driver > traction. Now if he's a crappy driver, he will run 15's all day long.

    sounds like a bunch of what if's to me. take to the track, if he's that desperate for a run. tell him to bring slicks to make up for your awd launch. maybe race for gas or a $20 spot. anything else just sounds like it belongs in the F&TF movies. and is really stupid.

    off topic and totally stupid on my part but 60 to 150 only take about 10 seconds in a highly modded srt, so racing to 150 isn't that insane. ok well it is but not quite as bad as it sounds on paper.

    Tell that to the police after they pull you over.

    ^^^^haha this!

    Seriously though next time he bugs you tell him your not into ridiculous speeds, find a highway and do a 0-75 pull in the middle of nowhere during the day. (never could figure out why people like to race to triple digit speeds, or race at night....its so much easier to get caught at night!)

    Of course he'll blow by you once you shut down at 75, on his way to 100+ and claim he won, but at least you'll know you own him where it matters.

    Just tell him no and that you don't care or reconsider why you care if that is hard to do.

    guess your 1/8 mile racing then and not 1/4. at least go to 100.

    ^^^^ His STI prolly traps around 108 or so. I am guessing from 0 He might still win. Going to 100, is almost a 1/4... slightly less.

    tell this kid to screw off and grow some balls to race you on the 1/4. I love kid that think the only race is a roll from 60 mph.

    Truth is he probably cant even do a proper burn out at the strip, let alone know how to launch a turbo FWD car properly.


    oh and he beats crotch rockets eeeh. Trust me, it will take one bad SRT-4 to knock off any modern 1liter sport bike.

    that reminds me of the time these kids in an srt-4 asked to race me by saying "yo race this srt4 its slow and waste gated" so i asked "internal or external" and they all looked at eachother then looked at me like i had 8 heads. it was a typical mommy and daddy bought srt4 with cat delete and blow off valve.

    Challenge him to see who can pick up the most girls...

    The STI will always win over a skittle... And, really, isn't that a far better measure of awesomeness?
