Few months back had a kid in a ford focus svt ask to run me.. After a Lil shit talking from my end about not wanting to waste my gas on his car.. I Finally give in too prove A point. Lol
I hit it in 2nd at about 45mph and snap the Passenger side axle. The Dude takes off and never looked back.. Then waiting on side of the road for a tow same focus comes back from where ever honking the horn and waving but never stopped. I Love my neon

Also the good ole Cps issue with our cars has made me duck my head in shame a few times

Well, I was on the highway today, and i was behind someone who was doing about 7 to 10 under. I go to pass and downshift at the same time, my foot accidentally catches the brake pedal....
It was a vigorous ordeal so thankfully no one was close behind me.

Not in my srt but this is back when I had my jetta. I just bought the thing and I was driving it home on this back road out of no where i there was this shake, a sound similar to a boat anchor on concrete and a puff of white smoke from engine bay. Well apparently someone had the trans out and stripped the trans mount bolts because my transmission fell out and dropped out of the car while driving past this house where there were a few girls i went to school with just hanging out in there front yard:/

Pretty sure its says in your Srt4^ anyways like someone mentioned it was when my tps sensor was fudged up and now I have some vac leaks I think so when I'm at stop light ny car revs to 1500-2500 and people just stare and prob think I'm jus keeping my foot on the gas pedal. Also my car holds the rpms at a steady number, during decel sometimes when I'm trying to decel the car it will just keep going or jerk back in fourth because its trying to decel but something is trying to hold it back at the same time.

Showing off what? Bov? Not acceleration, bc it would be slow. 5th gear is a cruising gear. Ill prob never got wot in 5th unless I'm doing ~130

First time I ever took it to the quarter mile, had no idea how to launch it, revved it up to like 4000 and dumped the clutch. Car was stock then except for a typhoon intake that it had on at the time

Hopped harder than a rabbit with its ass on fire and I stalled it out in my panic. I was so embarrassed.
Got back to the pit to find my intake shook apart in the middle, my upper motor mount was mangled and part of the headlight plastic bracket part cracked in half. Got me some solid mounts and LCA bushings pretty quick after that incident

When I first got the car I didn't know how to drive a manual so I probably stalled it several times that day in the middle of traffic.

Most recent, I was on my way home one evening last week, and got off the freeway when some idiot pulled out of a side street in front of me going like 10mph. I downshifted to get around him, and POW, my timing belt snapped. I crawled to a halt.

Then there was the time when I went to a dyno day right after I bought my car and it only pulled 220HP. Come to find out later, that there was a massive hole in my hot side pipe about the size of my thumb.

The first time I took this car to the track, I lined up and waited for the green. I hadn't done this in a while so with my heart pumping, I wasn't paying attention to my RPMs. I dumped the clutch about 4k and snapped the passenger side axle. Didn't even get off the line.
