    Generally I find street racing pretty lame and stupid...particularly straight drags. That is not to say that I don't appreciate spirited driving though. Having said that....I find the SRT4 driver's behaviour childish and typically ego seeking stupid. Incidently, I find it particularly funny that you felt the need to console yourself by posting such a message that 'you had to let him think he won'....

    Additionally, while the SRT may have questionable looks, 'only' FWD, etc etc..... real driving enthusiasts are exclusive to brand, model, etc.....and frankly, the SRT is a rather fast car, good at what is does-and handles rather well contrary to what most people think about FWD vs 4WD vs RWD... the (stock) Impreza doesn't really have all that great chassis grip and handling but rather needs to be steered via the throttle.

    Furthermore, the SRT4 has more torque than the stock Impreza WRX and being that you have an automatic, chances are you would have losted regardless.....

    PS- While I have given testimony to the SRT, I would never want it to replace my own Impreza...

    I only posted it like that because he wanted to race, I didn't, therefore he had some idea that I was and he flashed his hazards thinking he had beat me. I came here to see what my odds would have been against him at a strip, obviously I had no odds against him and would have gotten my ass handed to me, I now know that. I feel no need for consolement, I would have lost, that's cool, I still love my car and would NEVER trade it for an srt-4

    Don't stock SRT's dyno at well over 200whp? I'm thinking that even a Cobb Stage 2 4EAT WRX will get stomped by a well driven SRT-4, especially from a roll. Those little cars are deceptively quick.

    Also, isn't this the wrong forum for this?

    edit:and no, I'd never trade my car for one, either...

    It's no problem; I'm not trying to be a jerk. Usually people compare cars in this manner in the "WRX versus the World" forum.

    many are putting up numbers to the wheels of what dodge is claiming at the crank.

    with basic exhaust stuff you are going to get mid 200's

    What was the point of this thread? Kids in all sorts of cars (yes, even the WRX) do that to me all the time. It's not the car, it's the driver.

    Anyway, nice death! Lol.

    You have a 4EAT right? If so, why not get a better torque converter installed to bump up your stall speed. This will help you off the line... Just a suggestion.

    this is off topic, but my mom got a new 2004 camry with the big V6, its got like 225 hp if im not mistake. Anyways, this car scoots, i swear it could keep up with a stock wrx on the highway. And its the quitest ride ever, sounds like a lexus, so comfy too, i must say im impressed! Sometimes i just take her car out, when i dont want to hear my exhaust. In the lexus I feel like im in a poor mans mercedez.

    I still dont think you could take him, but you never know.

    FWIW, most stock 04 SRT-4 put down 220-230hp and 240-250ft-lbs at the wheels.
