Was thinking of buying a GTO (untill)

I saw an SRT-4 pull away from one here in Bloomington Illinois...... I figured the GTO would walk one of those...... The GTO was yellow and the SRT4 was red. Am I crazy, dreaming.......both?

Yea man stock for stock STR-4 skittles dominate us left and right. Raced one and he took me by MANY bus lenghts, Ofcoarse I was pulled over buying some food, but I guess it still counts.

a SRT-4 with a stage 3 kit is pretty fun to drive and is pretty fast, but still it has no chance against a goat. I didn't get a chance to race one on a roll, I just race one from stoplight to stoplight when my 05 gto was stock and I had him by a car length, no telling how much if we had more room to play on.

However we had to do it like 5 times cause he had a harder time getting traction than i did at the light.

SRT-4 is defiantly a fun, sleeper car and is fast but no match for the gto even with the stage 3 toys.

From looking around a stage 3 srt-4 would take a GTO over and over again....
