Wake up earlier. No reason to drive like an asshat weaving through traffic because you're late. If you're late, you're late. If you get a ticket, you're extra late and minus $. If you get an accident, you're not going to work that day and minus lots of $. If you kill someone else doing such, you go to prison. If you die driving aggressively to work because you're late, you fail.


As stated the SRT-8 300 isn't really an impressive car. It drives/feels/handles like trash, and considering how large the engine actually, makes a sad amount of power. Also weighs like 4,200 pounds so wowzers. Chrysler should really end the Hemi. It's a waste of money and time for really - sad engine efficiency. The early CTS-V's aren't impressive comfort-wise (Cadlliacs aren't really that nice - new ones are getting better), but overall are leaps and bounds beyond the 300.

Is it really racing if there is only 1 participant? I think its just speeding with a false sense of success.

well, OP told story about racing and all others are bashing him, setting a good example and showing that we as car enthusiasts don't approve this practice, so this thread serves good purpose. :P

Ok yall need to remember one thing, our foci weigh near to nothing when it comes to power to weight ratio, yes a zx3 or even a svt, with just the littlest mods will add so much and let's think about this most v-8's weigh as much as our front clip from the hood down, so don't be imtimadated by a srt8 or even our big brother the mustang because even our big brother mustang can be smoked by our little but adgile focui, and trust me, I'm on my 8th focus and this one is pushing just under 270hp to the wheels and also haveing an LSD front end helps and its a quiffe if you want to know what I have send me a PM Im not shy about my yellow rocket :-)

Not that I'm saying it's true but there is a youtube video of a 302 ranger out running a SRT10 ram.
