don't race neon SRT4 turbo's

Last night was interesting. i was on my way home from work stopped at a red light turning left on to a main road. cars that are going straight on road that i am turning on have a red light too. just as my light turns green, dodge neon SRT4's light was red (obviously). did he slow down? nope. ran the light. next stop light we line up at, light turns green, pedal to the floor, i had about a 2 sec lead on him until he shifted into 3rd and i heard the hiss of his turbo and he pulled away from me. the fer ! now i really need a cai and cat back exhaust so i can have more of a chance.

The SRT-4's that I've seen are running deep into the 12's. I don't even try.

almost all SRT-4's will beat our cars, even some of the slowest run mid 14's. You need a pretty heavily modded fofo to give one a run for its money.

if you think that just those 2 mods are gonna give them a run for there money maybe u should just stop driving. lol no j/k SRT's have a lot of power man unless your boosted or sucking on a bottle u cant match them in power at all

SRT-4s are beasts. I have a hard time hanging with a stock one, mod them and not many things will hang....they are sick.

keep the racing on the track...

you'll win in 2 ways racing at a track.. 1... you'll save your life... the other racer's life and the on-lookers life... 2... the fofo will beat any srt-4 if you give it a few curves to carve while the rental car with a turbo slides all over the place.

and by track i mean road course not the 1/4
