ok, well... all i can say is wow. those things are fast as hell. damn. never knew that they were THAT fast. anyhow... we meet up at a carwash by gurnee mills, and we head out on our own way. but, i saw that he was headed towards the same place that i was, so why not, i chased after to get some runs in.
firts run: 35mph roll, i let auto gear box do all the work, hit it, he hits it, get to about 70 and let off, i was still ahead, though we were going around a big curve, so i might just had the advantage.
second run: from about 20mph, i drop it to 1st on my gearbox selector, and wait for the signal, he floors it just a quick milisecond faster than me so he gets automatic half car lead, i pursuit. by the end of 85mph, hes about 2 cars in front of me. damn.
third run: from about 20 mph roll again, i floor at the same time, he starts to pull slowly but being that the gear was in first and i shifted a bit last, 7500rpms, it detonated(?) and he got an extra car length on me just because of that, so i just let off.
fourth run: from a stop, i rev up to about 2600rpms and when it turned green, i got about a carlength and a half on him, but at about 60, i could see that he was behind me and coming up at a decently fast rate, so i just said screw it and let off so he can get ahead of me before the merge.
ok, hes completely stock and im not. but i am automatic. all i know is that this car is fast as heck. i have raced all sorts of cars, especially v8 stangs, and ive beat most of them. i can say that this car is sick.
ok, heres another problem. the guy in the srt-4 was all by himself. i had my brother and my sister in the car, plus a trunk full of school supplies, dog food and cat food, and some stereo stuff that my dad didnt take out of my trunk. all in all, the trunk must have had about 100lbs of stuff in there. and extra passenger weight is about 340lbs... excluding me(but it doesnt matter because im the driver). the extra weight was about 440lbs. another problem is that im pretty sure my boost controller is screwed up, because i have a boostmonkey, and it worked fine in the begining, but now, it seems to boost only at 14psi and when i raise it, it still boosts at 14. so im guessing something is wrong with the controller. does all this things worsen my performance. i know it does, but by a lot or very little to notice?
