    SRT 4 talks crap, does nothing.

    I was sitting at a stoplight, and I hear a very loud BOV whistling several times behind me, and an obviously aftermarket exhaust, revving like crazy. I look to see a totally blacked out SRT-4. I immediately knew this was going to be fun. We were both in the interstate lane, so the timing was perfect. As we proceed, he is jumping up and backing off, many times. We hit the ramp, I nail it around the turn, and heard all 4 tires screaming at me. I didn't listen to them, and just kept in it. I know enough about the neons to know that I needed a curvy road or a standstill to be competetive. He fell several car lengths, and by the time we were to hit the interstate, I had a few cars. He let off at about 80-85, still behind me. I was like WTF? All that revving and stuff, and then no go? I slow down and wait, ready to go, and nothing. I slow waaay down, and he eases by, all black car, all black windows, barely going the limit? His license plate read slw4dr. Cool plate, actually. I exit at mine, confused. Oh well, maybe he didn't want to waste gas on a stock looking WRX?

    I have been doing basic bolt ons initially. B&M short shift, which I am still not sure I like, HKS SSQV, not a performance mod, but fun and I like it, The wife hates it. Various small things. I was just wondering if this guy thought I was a complete waste of gas after all that noise, or what? His car looks very nice, and it does sound good, but I was willing to go, even expecting a loss, just for the fun of it. It is all about fun, after all.

    I think he prolly saw the stock exhaust and figured why bother? at least thats my educated guess. I don't instigate if they're using stock components, but if they start teasing me, stock or not, I follow suit.

    now that i said that... some merkur xr4ti is gonna come by with a stock exhaust, and a huge turbo and lay waste to me.
