    My favorite was when I still had my Rs stuff in my car. The Srt4 pretty much just came out. My friend and I were about to leave his house to go to this club my other friend Dj's at. My friend needed ciggs so we went the opposite way we needed to so we could hit up Wawa. This road breaks into two lanes and I see this silver Srt-4 going strait and I'm about to make a right to go into the other entrance. We both pull in and my friend goes in while I stay in my car. I look over at the part of the parking lot where ricers always hang out and that's where he's parked and no one went in the store. My friend comes out and I see this Neon just waiting for me. I pull out and he follows me flooring it on my ass like a tool. I keep telling myself it's not worth it because he should whoop my ass and I'm not a fan of racing on the street. The street breaks into two lanes again. This dude floors it by me then hits the brakes and pulls next to me. I honk it off and from 45-80 I hung. I was right on his bumper. Now this is the great part in the conversation we had.

    me: Nice race man, but you should have murdered me
    him: This is stock
    me: This isn't a wrx
    him: I know it's an Rs
    me: you have probably at least 80 whp more then me
    him: It's not my problem.
    me:

    I look in my rear view and see popo lights flick on. I'm in the left lane so I put on my turn signal on to get over. I pull behind the Srt-4 and he down shifts his car and floors it. The cop goes right around me and follows him. I turn into the shopping center so I can pull a u-bolt. My friend says it's a bad move to do that but I don't care I pull in anyway. As I'm about to exit to go back towards where I came from I look at the top of the parking lot and a different cop was pulling out there go to meet up with the other cop. If I kept driving I would have been screwed. I take some back roads and proceed to go to the club.

    I end up running into this kid at a local car meet and he asks me about my car. He asks me if I know a kid with a blue one. I tell him yeah it's my good friend. He says he raced him. I just laugh and tell him he raced me and asked him how much his ticket was. He said he didn't get any points but had a big fine. I said thank you for getting me out of a ticket and go talk to one of my other friends that just pulled up.

    i have respect for the srt-4 and mostly any other late model turbocharged vehicle...not including diesel trucks

    i have gone up against an SRT-4, and both bone stock, my car has the advantage. i was looking at the SRT-4's for affordability, except that all my american cars have blown up on me. also, its new england here, so snow sucks. i have only had front and rwd cars, and i do have to say: the little i've driven this car in bad weather, it has been so much better than front drive cars

    Where do you get these things??? The SRT-4 with FWD... or most fanbois here refer to as WWD (wrong wheel drive) has the advantage after the launch; weighs less, same or more power, FWD > AWD while rolling

    Might i ask how your stock vs. stock turned out?

    A few years ago while living in SC, I was driving my beloved yellow '88 Fiero Formula with T-Tops. It was a beautiful afternoon, tops off, I'm cruising thru Myrtle with my new g/f. Life was good. All of a sudden a city police car speeds up very quickly right on my ass. I'm like oh great all I need is a ticket! His lights come on, not the blue, but the safety lights, and I realize oh sh!t it's my roommate Bryan. Sure enough, there is he behind the wheel laughing his a$$ off. I flipped the middle finger and sped off!

    I raced my friends turbo focus from-a-roll at his request. I had him by a headlight and he insisted he beat me and told everybody on a local forum that he had 'killed' a stage 2 STi. It turned into a big e-argument till my passenger posted a ****ty camera phone video that showed me winning. He asked for a rematch and I told him the next one had to be from a dig. He refused.

    I'm not quite sure what you are saying/asking here, but a stock 06 WRX is pretty even with a stock SRT-4.

    My cousin used to have one and I have an 06 TR.

    We were pretty much dead even on most 20-80 runs. The higher speed the race started at the more the advantage shifted to the SRT-4 because of the TD04.

    I don't know about the FWD>AWD while rolling comment. It should have more to do with the specs of the engine.

    My stage 2 TR was faster than the SRT-4 but the huge burst down low was quickly made up for in higher RPM ranges.

    Today I'm at a stoplight and a brand new WRX roles up next to me. The driver couldn't have been older than 16 and the car didn't even have plates on it. He starts revving at me and as much as I wanted to I didn't acknowledge him. Light turns green WRX takes off gets about a block ahead and then a cop pulls out and takes off after him. I saw him pull over ahead but I had to take the next turn.
