    His is an extended cab, I'll run him again after I get a tune, unless he calls me out sooner, then I'll do it for gp.

    I was called out by this random guy at the gas station one night who was in a single cab SRT-10. He asked if I wanna race and I laughed. He said "What you laughing at? This is an SRT-10. I have 10 cylinders to your 8." Of course I wasn't going to let this clown talk smack. So we pulled out on the 4 lane highway & he got more than he bargained for. Pulled an easy 2-3 cars on him. I wasn't stock, but no significant mods either. I believe you can get him if your car is running like it should.

    This post is making me a little nervous. I've gotta race with a srt-10 this spring (single cab and 6 speed). His brother says hes gonna beat me by 3 cars, I told him I'm gonna be out in front by 1.5. I hope the Z is ruunin good that day.

    Wish me luck and I'll post the results when it happens.

    With your mods, you definitely shouldn't have a problem. Is he stock or do you know? I was somewhat intimidated, but its only a race. What have you got to lose? Just drive the piss outta your Z!

    When mine was stock I ran a 2 door m6, I had A4 3.23. We ran on the interstate up to 140 through light traffic, but neither one was pulling. But like they said with 3.73 (i have them) your car will be quicker, you'll feel it.

I've got a lot of things to take care of around the house right now. I asked my buddy if he wanted to run again but he said maybe later, every one was giving him shit for spinning so I humbled myself and told them all that we both spun pretty bad. I guess he didn't notice.
    Dont even waste your time running a stall that small, you will just wish you went with a 3k or bigger later.

    Ive got a 3k stall and 3:70 gears, most of the time when I'm racing, or playing around I wish I would have listened to other people and went with a bigger stall...

    Go with atleast a 3k stall. its still completely streetable at that point. If your going to do it, do it right the 1st time.

    what tires are you running? If there decent a good launch shouldnt be too hard, I mean its an a4.. Through a stall in there, ls6 intake, and some gears (at least one of the three) along with a good set of rubber and you should take him to the cleaners.

    Hes stock, and hopefully I'll have 3.42's in it before we race.

    I figure with the stall and drag radials I will out launch him and he will never catch up.

    I don't know, you might want to drive/ride in a car with a bigger stall first...I have a 3000 stall and if I could trade someone for a 2500 I would definitely do it. Stalls get really annoying on a DD, maybe with a V8 it's different, but I kinda doubt it, I used to have one lol.

    +1 on this

    I have a 3200 stall and it makes the car feel very sluggish during normal driving, but the shop that installed it said as my power increases the stall will feel and perform much better. I hope with a gear swap to 3.42's it will help too.

    I would recommend driving a car with a higher stall so you know what your getting into.

    but I will say at a 25-35mph punch it launches like a rocket.
