    Plus it beat the Audi....which runs mid 13's @ +100... I would have guessed the Audi to catch up towards the end......
    Its all in the LAUNCH.
    Its all about the driver.

    You know what I find funny? On the srt4 forums when some other car besides an srt4 makes a lot of power they are like bs blah blah blah and all this junk, but when we hear about other cars besides wrx's having a lot of power on here most of us are like "wow what does that car have done to it?". And what I love is that it seems every srt4 on that forum has like 600whp or more I don't believe every srt4 on there has 600whp or more.

    Someone mentioned this a few replies ago how one of the guys on that thread said "it must suck to go into the negative's at 100mph" these fools are seriously stupid. Then one guy said "the boost doesn't come on till 6000 rpms" there wasn't even rpm's on the thing so they are even making stuff up hahahaha. They remind me of the guys in the VTAC video and the VTEC Mustang video hahahaha.

    I am also getting a headache as well reading the thread on the srt forum but I find it hard not to read all the way to the end because it's funny how they write stuff like "I raced an evo this morning from 0-130 and I am only running 9psi and I beat him" I bet any amount of money that from 0-105 the evo was winning than because he has 2wd he got to 130 faster when they shouldnt have even gone to that speed unless they are both running like 10's or faster.

    Then the Cobra guy jumps in and is like "my cobra is a lot faster than an evo stock" well it might be faster but it's not "a lot" faster. I am a fan of Cobras and other mustangs and I even considered buying an old school stang or maybe even a new one but how some of these guys talk **** makes you start to hate the car even when you should only hate the person. But yeah I am gonna finish reading that thread, I am on page 11 or 12 I hope there isn't a lot more to read.

    1st off, SRT-4 is a kids car. Its $20,000. of cheap fun with some head room for up grades.
    2nd, To this day I have never come across one with more then
    350whp. and they are all FWD.

    WRX, STi, Audi, GSX, and EVOs are a higher performance and tuning class car!
    If I was building a 450WHP and up car, the AWD platform is the car of choice. (WRX, STi, Audi, GSX, or EVO)
    What good is Big Power if you get it to the ground to go faster?
    Don't break the tires loose! Break the finish line!

    Just ask Mr. Cobra guy if he wants to run after a light rain, summer shower, or any chilly morning with a little moisture on the road.

    If I was to choose a tuning car. It would be RWD. It would most likely be mid engine too.

    Thumbs down Srt-4's

    Its funny about those SRT-4 guys how much bull$h!t they talk!! Theres a yellow one in orlando that posted at www.orlandoforums.com under the drag racing forum(SRT vs All!). You guys should read that, he called out everyone to race him b/c he says he is "stock" yeah right!! and said he could take anyone. Funny b/c my two friends literally SPANKED his SRT-4 real bad that same day at night, then he came with the excuse that his spark plugs were bad!! He wanted to race my EVO but backed out when i said lets go from a dig, his excuse was that his tires were gone . Im in the process of moding my EVO so i can spank that SRT-4 from a dig, roll or what ever it is.

    Sorry, NO pics of my NEW SUBY yet
    My point is the SRT-4, my GS-T, and 3G are FWD cars.
    The (WRX, STi, Audi, GSX, VR-4 or EVO)... are AWD cars.
    Its like comparing Apples to Oranges.

    I have the Quaife Limited Slip Differentials in both my FWDs,
    But its still NO substitute for AWD

    I've beaten an EVO since my friend owns one and we race all the time. I can beat him but I know not for long.. once he gets a TBE/cams/reflash I'm toast.

    I've raced 4 Evos and beaten them all. These were all freeway runs. I never try 2 race people, but alot of people pick on me. Anyways, I think most were stock or didn't know how to drive. I usually let off around the 120 mark if they haven't caught up. I've had them anywhere from 2-8 cars depending on the driver.

    BTW, I have a 02 wrx w/ VF22 on 18psi (all supporting mods), full exhaust, headers, etc.
