Postby alltracst185 » Wed Mar 26, 2008 9:19 pm

so like the tittle says i was on my way back from maine from visiting my parents when a srt-4 pulled behind me, iknew why he pulled up behind me so he got in the next lane( we were on 495). i was just cruising in 5th gear and when he got beside me he took off thinking i would'nt catch him so i down shifted only too 4th and caught up quickly and flew past him like he was standing still!!! he could'nt beleive he just got owned by a celica i guess because the expression on his face was priceless. so we did it again and he got owned again!! i can't wait till i get my ems :D i wqs only at 10 lbs too

Nigel's loving every moment of his car (I have yet to hear it with his new toys he got for it) But IMO he'll probably take me. I'll take him off the line for sure, but he'll catch up and pass me. We wont know for sure until we actually 'try' it. Though, I am not all up for street racing, I'm more of a mountain pass person.

On topic:
Great job! It really depends on whats really done to a car though, Ive taken on a fully stock SRT4 before, while I have a larger turbo, straight intake, and a DP :P (not much but it does me well).
Aloha,
Evan

^from experience yes they do. i drove my buddy's srt4 on many occasions from when he had it stock all the way up to when he had it stage3+ everything (he ran 11.7 in the 1/4, daily driver!)

i think a trac would need a minimum of an upgraded ct26, intake, exhaust, intercooler, boost controller.... haha thats kind of alot just to keep up with a "stock" srt4... but thats what it take to keep up with a car that has more hp and is alot lighter right off the bat... you can basically piss on the car and it'll make more hp, so if they have any sort of mods dont get your hopes up too much... but trust me its worth it to see the shock and disbelief when you are keeping up and/or pulling away on them... i would like to try my chances with one again esp now since i have water injection and the ct27, but gas is too high and my time is scarce to go out patrolling the highway haha...

if i were you i would try to mess with one b/c you're going to put up a bigger fight then they would expect anyway, plus you'll have an idea where you stand against other cars on the road...

I drove with Nigel on windy roads the other night, though I am sure he could have sped up on a couple turns I stayed by his tail the whole way, that is, until it got to a straight, thats when my lag kicked in and he got away :oops:

It was fun though, I would do it again.

just wait until you get a fm intercooler, exhaust, some way to tune it and raise the boost then i think he'll be in trouble :smokes:

I also just had a race with an SRT4. Only mod apparent on the SRT4 was exhaust. My car, power-wise, is bone stock except for a 3inch exhaust from the downpipe back. Anyhow I was loaded down with my brother and myself(400lbs between the two of us) and pulled behind this SRT4 that I noticed had been speeding like crazy down the road earlier. We were in a two lane left turn onto the freeway...and our lane ended shortly after the turn so we had to merge to the left lane before coming onto the freeway. The light turned green and he punched it and I did the same. Just before all this happened I was telling my bro how the "neon" is going to leave us behind and they are fairly quick cars. Anyhow I stuck right on his ass through first, second and halfway through third when I let off as I was speeding too much. Needless to say I was suprised because I assumed we would have been left behind. Can't wait til I get the SB46 turbo kit installed...then I'll be able to play a bit harder. :shoots:
