Nothing too major, sorry if my experience is disappointing but anyway. I was traveling south on 75 in Dallas coming home to Arlington. I noticed some headlights in the rear view come on me kinda quick, and then back off a little. Not thinking much of it, when it was convenient for me I got over. You can always kinda tell by the headlights if its worth messing with, know what I mean? I thought it might've been a neon but wasn't for sure.

So as I got over he pulled up next to me quickly. His BOV confirmed it was an SRT4 before I made a visual. So as soon as I heard that I got in behind him, right behind him. He got a jump on me and was slowly pulling away. I'm not gonna make exscuses, I'm ceartain he would've left me if not for us approaching traffic and slowing down.

This wouldn't happen again. Being right behind him I could see when the lanes would open again and shifted into 3rd. We were off again only this time he didn't gain much. Maybe he wasn't trying as hard, I don't know. But in the end when slowed by traffic he got over, rolled down his window, and gave me the elusive thumbs up. :cool:. He was impressed with the car and I with his dimeanor.

nice. the srt4 with a good person shifting the gears will make our cars look slow. Not bad just slow. Good games man keep it up.

Cool. I haven't had an SRT-4 bite yet. I've encountered three of them so far and none wanted to play.

I havent had a run in with one yet (redline). I drive an srt-4. I saw one in my rearview one day but i was parked eating a cheese burger. He circled back around but did not stop. I wasnt trying to race i wanted to meet the person.

I see the same red SRT-4 every morning going the opposite way on highway 93. One day I am going to flip a bitch and run him.

I finally got to race an SRT-4 this morning. We started at about a 55 mph roll and I stayed with him for a few seconds and then he walked me to a 100. I just let off at that point. Next light I gave him a big thumbs up.

Damn, I hope our aftermarket will allow us to compete with these cars because at this point, we cannot.

you must remember stock with a bosot controler they can run up the HP number like crazy. A few minor mods like injectors and wastegate better tubing and watch the bigger number roll around. We dont have much room to grow on the current supercharger. So untill we see a m90 or m112 adapted its unlikly to keep up in terms of mods. there is a 03 srt-4 in my area I can own though. His buddy make me feel like an ass though. his friend has a blue 04 with 4++ to the tires that is insane. Its like us racing a semi.

I am more than happy to run anyone in the Seattle area. I love the styling of the redline just not the dash. Anyway good run.

You're lucky then. All of the SRT-4's here in houston want a piece of a Red Line. It's like a rite of passage or something.
