well i went to get snow tires today and when i got to the place, this guy from a dodge dealership next door came over to see if i wanted to race "his" "stock" srt-4. he was about 25 and selling cars, but i guess the owner of the dealership thought that racing the srt-4 would make me want one, so he let the guy leave to go race me
so anyway, he let me look under the hood and i didn't notice any mods, but i'm not that familiar with srt-4's. we pulled out onto the street, got next to each other at about 20, and took off from a roll. he got his rear bumper to my front by the end of first, then probly 1/2 car to a car by the end of second, then just kept pulling from there. we slowed at about 75 and he had almost two cars on me. then we turned around to try again, from more like 10 or 15 mph this time, and i stayed ahead of him through first gear (which isn't saying much), then he just proceeded to waste me again.
i went back to talk to the guy, and he told me that he filled up on race gas last week (which of course was completely gone by now, for sure) and he has an air filter. also, he had very high performance tires. i'm running 91 octane. right now i'm in wyoming (going to wyotech) so we're at 7000+ feet.
i think i should have won.... are those things really that fast stock? my mods should be in my profile.
