Well I was cruising down the highway last night at like 1am going about 70 mph on a 55 because I needed to get home to sleep for work early then I see these blue halogen headlights come from a distance pretty fast so I was like wow...These lights came up pretty fast and I look at the car that passes me and its a civic si (white) 04...Im like oooh my rival...I speed up but he's like 20 cars ahead already...Im cruising at about 80-85 now and my radar detects a cop on the side and I go back to 60mph...I speed up after passing the cop and actually come up upon the 04 si again...I remember going up side by side and revving then he downshifts and I follow...We go at it pretty long and when I look Im already passing him up very slowly and I actually hit 120mph and I'm like a car ahead of him and let off then he finally flies past me...My mods are NONE and the si had an intake (loud as heck) and a muffler...Im claiming the win of that race and yes I know its dangerous but my detecter saw no sights of cops (escort 8500) and there were no cars out on the highway...Finally I know I can take them civics even on the freeway...I was afraid their Vtecs would top on us...

you would get dusted by either of those without a lot of mods.

tc goes about 15.7 in the quarter mile

srt 4 = about 13.9

evo = 13.5 all wheel drive will kill you at launch

stock srt-4's cant dust Wrx's on the street unless they have way better drivers or going at access speeds of 60+...my friends stock 02 WRX takes srt-4's off launches so easily and also beats them in the low end...In the top end the srt-4's only win by a little if theyre stock...

Also yes the srt-4 was made to destroy the WRX...They're like #1 rivals against eachother...but the WRX sti owns the srt's...

Try again. The EVO VIII and the STi are direct rivals. They compete against each other regularly. WRC never even heard of an SRT Neon.

I was talking about the base model WRX not the STi for being the srt-4's rival...Of course the STi and Evo are rivals...

lol lets not get so serious over something like that. i went to the track today to watch no runs. not many fast cars here tonight only 3 cars only 12s i think. fastest was a turbo fox body mustang like 11.3 or something. all the SRTs there were running low 14s i think everyone was having traction problems. there was a tC there but he hella sucked at driving. his best time was 16.8 and his other run was 17.0 his license plate was "TRBO TC" u guys know him?

Damn right F the SRT. Racing heritage oh wait what Racing heritage does the SRT have thats right NONE. WRX is world famous for being the best WRC car in the latest years. If i didn't get turned down for my loan for a 1999 impreza 2.5 RS with after market turbo (cause they weren't in the states with a turbo) putting 320 Ponies to the ground i wouldn't have a tC right now. But i do and i love the car but my heart is still with Subaru so i plan on keeping my tC and getting a Subaru here in a couple years.

why do you hate the srt4? surely it can't just be because it lacks a racing heritage?

btw: the "its still a neon" argument was already thrown out there.

Oh yeah you guys say its still a neon???...If I didnt get a tC I would be the proud owner of an srt-4...and yeah you guys can diss neons all you want just because their heritage sucks...Can you find any FWD stock in the world as fast as the Srt-4???...Not trying to get mad but yea I love my tC way more then any neon but who cares...neon srt-4's = 13-low 14 sec cars...
