    SRT-4 and me

    The other day I was bored as sh*t. So my buddy and I decide to go test drive some cars. First stop of the day was at the local dodge dealership. Where we talked our way into driving an SRT. My buddy hops in the pass seat as I am in the driver. The salesman hopps in the back "I have to go with you". He also quoted "This thing is really fast", "it handles like no other", and "it stops on a dime". So I decided to see how correct he was. While getting myself ready to drive this little pos he claims "95% of the drivers cant put this car to its limits" and "I notice you have a quick car (STi), so I dont need to inform you how to drive this". I pull out of the dealership and head to the highway. Get on to the on ramp and punch it. I keep on the little red neon all the way up to 105mph. The salesman is squiggling around in the back very nervous, as my buddy is laughing. We come up to the exit ramp and I through it in neutral, waiting to brake untill the last moment. "See it has very nice brakes." I then get back on the highway and am doin around 90mph. I get off and there is a long sharp right hand 30mph curve for the exit ramp. I am pushing this car through the curve, squealing the tires. Then another lane is added on the right with a left hand turn then a traffic light. Well a semi is in the right lane around this turn, so I speed up and take the inside lane real fast, go in-front of the semi, drop the car to 2nd gear (w/o brakes) and fly around this right hand turn. Pull into the dealership with my buddy laughing histarically and the salesman saying that "you are in that 5% of people". I left, and didnt call them back.

    So basically what you are saying is you did stupid and dangerous things that put you, your friend, and a salesman in danger not to mention anyone else on the road or walking near by.

    Of course, it all sounds like BS to me.

    I got a laugh out of this. Of course I wasn't the one in the car with you. I feel kinda bad for the sales guy and the guy that buys that car.

    While I can see why you are all hopped up on this, it was a very brash and not too intelligent move to risk two other lives in the car (not to mention those in traffic around you) in a car you dont even own.

    Think before you do something like that again.

    The highway stuff was a little dangerous and over kill for a test drive.

    I'm all in favor of a good test drive. I went 100% (full out) when test driving a few LS1's back in 1999. The salesman actually like what I did. Straight line speed with no traffic around.
    But I definately wouldn't mess with traffic in my car or someone elses.
