Got into a little tango with a stage 2 SRT-4 last night. I have been looking for this car ever since I got the GTO. I raced him with my GTP and had the low end grunt but he got me top end so I really wanted to see what the goat would do. Well low and behold I meet up with him on a 4 lane highway that NOBODY drives on anymore and we get side by side at about 20. He honks three times and away we went. First race I was only in 2nd gear so he got the jump on me, about 1 car length at first. I hit third and reel him in a little bit, then I hit fourth and just start walking him. By 140 I had about 5 cars on him. Then we shut it down. Turned around and lined up again. This time I didn't look at the speedo but I know he was right where his turbo wasn't gonna lag. I started in first this time and he still got a jump on me but only about a half of a car length. He was shifting right before me and he hit second I gained a little ground then I hit second and was past him. By the end of third I had about 2 cars on him, by the end of fourth I had 5 or 6, and by 150 mph I had about 8. He put up a really good fight. I was surprised with the car. Pretty cool kid, we pulled over and talked a little. He said his car was almost stock but wouldn't go into detail.

Nice kill!!!!

You gotta respect those SRT4's. They can get real wicked fast with little work.

Also nice when you race someone and they aren't a jerk.
