    From a dig he's done for. From a roll he might get you. Is he modded?

    from a dig you should win, there very hard to launch. if hes stock from a roll he should have a slight advantage. but mostly a drivers race. but they respond very well to light mods and can easily pick up 50whp.

    From everything I've read so far, the Caliber SRT-4 has a 0-60 of only 6.2-6.4 ...I thought it'd at least hit high 5s. I guess people aren't exaggerating when they say they're hell to hook with...

    Could this be part of the reason they're like an endangered species in my area? I've seen all of ONE since they released.

    A protuned stage 2 would walk him from any speed if its stock. If he had mods and a tune would come down to driver from a 50 or 60 roll. Theres vids on youtube of modded jeep srt8s beating lambos and all kinds of stuff. Highly modded, mind you. Pretty wild to watch a jeep walk away from a v12 turbo though.

    i've seen less than 10 in my area. limited production. not even sure if they still make it. add in the fact it was a pos. the motor highly derived from the new evox is great. just in a very poor platform

    My friend and I constantly race at the 1/8 mile, were tied 3 and 3 so far. He has a 05 srt-4 and their no joke; itís all about the launch. The quarter mile I wonít even bother racing him because he always ends up pulling away.

    if he has a 05 its a neon. 06+ are calibers which is what the op it talking about.

    dunno about yours/his mods but if the srt is on street tires you should always take him in the 1/8mile.

    Yeah itís the neon style. He has a cb, cold air intake, and is on summer street tires; I just have a cb and am on all seasons.

    If he spins too much off the line I have no problem taking him, but if he gets a good launch he takes me by around 0.1 sec. Just throwing it out there for reference to the op.
