AWD OWNZ U said:I know I am going to take shit for this, but since when is a 14 sec 1/4 mi fast? I'm just wondering what everyone here considers fast? For me, it's 12s.
I was obviously refering to quarter mile, not top speed. :roll: Fast can refer to a quarter mile time, go use a dictionary sometime. Nor did I ever say my car is fast, if I think 12s are fast then obviously my car is not. Whenever anyone asks I just tell them it's slow. Nor did I say the WRX was fast (it's not) I like how people put words in my mouth so they can argue with me. To me it can't be fast if you add a for to your sentence. As in it's fast for under $20k or it's fast for a stock car. I mean honestly guys if you are talking to someone and they say my car runs mid-14s are you gonna go, "damn man that's fast?" I guess if they have an SRT-4 you will. :roll:spcforker said:I thought 143MPH WAS Fast!!???
AKA the car runs out of horsepower at top speed.boostedneonsrt4 said:you have to remember, 143 is fast only if you dont drive a srt-4.............its perfectly ok for a honda or a (gasp!) subie runs 143, but heaven forbid it be possible that a "neon" could run that fast. and by the way the 1/4th isnt the basis oh which to determine if a car is fast, hell all you have to do is change gear ratios.......... i dont know many hondas that can keep going to 143, they just run out of breath........hell the sad thing is, the srt-4 is limited in top speed becasue of WIND DRAG not the computer.....which also means given some better areodynamics this car could possible top 160. all for under 20k........hahahaha if you wanna really fast car go buy a gt-2 or a mclaren f-1, or if you dont feel like selling your soul to get one of those get ya a srt-4 and still have money left over and still be able to go fast
DITTO....some folks are just plain jealous.srt4evah said:I'd say that anything in the 14's is good for a stock vehicle under $30,000. 15's is good for anything under $20,000.
That said, the SRT-4 is FAST, in my opinion. Sure, you can just buy an Viper Venom 900 and get what, 10 second 1/4's, or hell, buy a Russian Mig and have a top speed of Mach 2.0.
It's all relative, and relatively speaking, the SRT-4 is FAST! Okay?
