I own a 05 Red SRT-4 and have come across only 2 Redlines up here in Maryland...I have to say that u guys/gals with the Redline have a nice platform to work with. I love the SRT-4 but it just gives me too much unwanted attention from cops, ricers (however you want to take that) SUV's that think its just a bodykited neon and the likes. But the Redline and Cobalt SS have some nice body styles...sleeper maybe? I don't know but I think you guys can really put some people to shame if there not up to date on their cars. Just wanted to know if you guys came across any SRT-4 yet? Oh well....maybe I'll actually go to the the stealership and see about test driving the Redlines and Cobalt.

I hung with one in cat and mouse but I don't think he was maxing it out due to being on the interstate in late rush hour traffic. But we both had a little fun and he was impressed. I'm not sure if he was stock but it was an SRT4.

I agree with that a great deal. A few people I've run into think it's simply a kitted stock Ion with a trim package.

I raced a SRT-4 on the way to Key West in 3rd gear from 60 to 100 it was dead even. I think he was impressed or maybe pissed because he was looking at all of his gauges trying to figure out why this Stock Saturn was keeping up with him.

I just got walked by one from 55 mph to 100 this morning. Fast freakin' little cars.

It was the first I've ever encountered on the road.

I saw a silver SRT-4 on the road for the first time last night. It was in the middle of rush hour traffic so no fun, but the driver had a big grin on his face when he noticed that I was checking out his car. :cool:

I live in MD and have a black RL. Where in MD are you? Are you the SRT-4 that ate me for lunch on 695 last weekend??

I have yet to see a SRT-4 in my area, only neons.
There's a couple of fast ones in the south metro. There is a guy that lives down a few blocks from me that has one. I can hear him going to work in the morning, blow off valve and all. I love turbo cars so it is a nice way to start the morning :D

I'm not sure it was me.....if you saw the back of the SRT-4 did it have temp tags on it....if so then it was me, LOL. But now I got tints on my window so just give me a honk if any of u guys see me. Anyways I was on ritchie highway the other night and man....the SRT-4 did some pretty takedowns on some hondas and stock GT mustangs, But when the big boys came out I had to get out of the way for reals. My boy with a Syclone (still stock) was out racing some guy with a 12sec Camero, i tried to go against a Older black mustang with a BIG supercharger on it, even the red mustang had a damn roll cage in it..but you'd never see it with the tints. And all but not least.....a 500+ hp Honda S2000 that sounded mean as shit. But my big win was against a Caddy CTS on 695 around 2am which was clear for about 4 miles out. He'd take me all the way up to 90, after that I started to catch up..then i just walked away around 120. If any of u guys get together down here in Maryland I'll come to chat with you guys...shit maybe someone can give me ride while i video tape... :D

It did have temp tags on it. It was over by Bel Air road headed towards Towson.

Yeah...I think it was me. I got on the beltway coming from route 1 heading towards Randallstown (going towards Towson) on the beltway on the fast (left hand) lane.

I don't think it was the V series cause I think they have a LS1 or LS6 in it (not exactly sure). It might have been since the regular one has a V6 I think, either way I still couldn't touch it till i got past 90+mph.

The V series for Caddy's don't come out until later this year, do they?? I thought summer/fall 2005 was the release dates on those. If I had the cash I would love an STS-V.....*DRROOOOOL*
