Are you stock? Was it from a start or from a roll?

Because there is no stock Rex that can beat a stock SRT-4.

Hey, what a way to make an entrance to the forum!!

IMHO, in the 1/4 mile, it is a drivers race. If the race is to, say 130ish, the *stock* SRT-4 will beat a *stock* WRX. When the two cars are modded, then it comes down to who has the deeper pockets.

If your stock, I'll spank you. If your modded, say TXS stage 3 or 4, you'll hand me my ass. I always say run what you brung, and if you lose, then you need more mods!!

And NO, this not your Grandma's neon!

drizze99 does you stock exhaust pop when your engine is coming down from hi revs???? Cause I was right up next to one of these cars in traffic and his exhaust was so poppy. I was curious if this was aftermarket or not...

P.s. He gave me the thumbs up and I returned one too!!! Cool guy.

Yea, it's real poppy on deceleration. It's even more poppier (<--- is that a word?) with the stage 1 kit in it. The car runs like a rich little piggy. I can't wait till we have a piggy back for this PCM!!

I think it is cool that both cars are real close in the 1/4. I hope to get next to one at a light soon. I still haven't even seen one on the road.

I don't bother quoting magazine quarter mile times. When it comes down to both driver's being equal, the SRT-4 will beat a WRX from a stop and a roll. In the real world, I've seen more 14.0-14.1s out of stock SRT-4s broken in or not compared to stock WRXs. Most stock WRX owners run 14.3-5s. Some stock SRT-4 owners have even run 13.8-9s on stock tires. Like I said, both driver's being equally skilled, the SRT-4 will win from a stop and rape from a roll.

Two phatty cars nonetheless.

Hey man, it's all good. :D I like this forum because it is NOT like any other WRX forum out there. I have been accepted into this community for the most part. I hope you stick around cause then you'll see how nice it is around here. I have even met a bunch of the guys on here that are local to me and it was all good times.

It sounds like you have a really nice car there on your hands. How much are you putting down to the wheels? How much psi are you runnin?

Right now I am running about 16.5 psi and I have no idea what im runnin at the wheels because I have not had it dynoed yet. I am looking at getting either a unichip or utec so i can get those custom tuned when i go to the dyno. right now i am running the cobb tuning stage 2 reflash. anyway, looking forward to gaining some respect round here.

drizze99 I don't know if you know this, but since you have a mopar you might know... were the Neon R/T's fast? I saw one of these on the freeway while I was in my daily driver and caught up to it thinking it was an SRT-4 but it only said R/T on the back...

In stock trim no. They have a 2.0 SOHC with 150/132 crank. They can be modded though. They have the normal bolt ons and Hahn has a turbo kit for them. I had one, and with 2.5" catback, it ran a 16 flat.

Hey nice SRT-4! I almost bought a yellow one as well, but the salesman was a total dumb a$$. N-E-Wayz I bought a yellow WRX (hince the name YeloFvr:p ). I'm glad there is a car out there that can give my WRX some comp....I'm tired of dusting off civics with expensive body kits and stickers:D
