My buddy goes 10.7 @ 140mph in his SRT4 (pics and video inside) UPDATE: 10.3 @ 147!
 
One of my good friend's that's had his srt since they came out finally accomplished what he's been after for a long time, a 10 second pass in his srt4. For those of you that are on the srtforums, his screename is pumpking (or d-srt currently).

He was having issues with his 1-2 shift (not WOT shifting) which was causing him to lose rpm's and get some turbo lag. On his 10sec pass, he cut a 1.8 60ft and 106mph in the 8th. Earlier in the day he cut a 1.7 60ft and 110mph in the 8th. It's been 2.5 years since he's launched his car from a dig (mostly a freeway racer), so he was definitely a wee bit rusty. They kicked us out after he trapped 140, so we're definitely gonna try to go back (if he gets a cage) to see if he can turn that 10.7 into a low 10 and around a 145-150mph trap.

I know the focus is off in this one, but he wanted a burnout picture

Other than those wheels and the hood, its such a nondescript looking car. Non car people or those less suspecting probably get blown away by its speed. There are plenty of expensive cars that cant even do a quarter mile in 11 seconds. The noise probably gives it away some but such fast little car in a neon disguise

These two things happened on Saturday when we were there. There was and old nova that was running high 11's around 120ish that my buddy FLEW by. the look on the owners face when he came back to the staging lanes was PRICELESS. He definitely gave the car props.

and couldn't agree more. There was a ZL1 there as well that was running mid 12's. He too was blown away by the neon. haha

That's damn impressive. Any idea how much time he shed with the drag slicks? It's almost too bad the car is in great shape, if it were flawed then he could intentionally make it look neglected and like a totally normal Neon. Hard to disguise the exhaust note though.

Not sure I can answer this, since if he was on regular street tires, he would most likely literally spin them all the way down the track. At his power levels, he definitely spins them all the way through third, and a good amount into 4th. Dr's or slicks are a must at his power level.

Yup I remember seeing his thread on the srt forums... I think he was the firs 10 sec SRT in Cali... I have a Stage 3 SRT myself.

yep. he sure was. car's got a lot more left in it too. hopefully he'll be taking it back to the track soon. If he does, I'll be sure to post up some more pics and a new video on here.

haha was the owner's choice for the video. Up here in norcal (bay area), there are A LOT of srt4's. On our local site, there are some pretty big ego's, and the whole "I know more than you, my cars are faster, etc etc" going on. The song was meant for one individual who is always trying to find out what's going on with pumpking's (d-srt on the nationals) car. Was just sent as a mesage to stop tarzaning if you will. haha

thanks man. I got a new lens and a new camera stabilizer, so the next one should be quite a bit better.

and yea. most srt's out here are maxed out stockers, a few stg3's, a few 50t's, and a couple of big boys. this one in the video would be the king of the hill. haha
