    One lap in my WC SRT-4 chasing a racing Viper. This was a SAFE Motorsports event and my first time driving the World Challenge car, the Viper owner is a member of this forum and was showing me the ropes. My best time of the day was 2:33.

    Verrryy nice!! Mine is a Stage III with Three inch pipe from turbo back, no cat/ Long ram air intake, Big intercooler, hardpipes, Darrell Cox racing oiling system and oil flow director, CO2 intercooler sprayer, Toys, and has run on race fuel since I bought her. Runs quite well.

    That setup is similar to our 05 SRT-4 ACR, car dynos 360 to the wheels and is just too much fun to drive. We also run race fuel on every tank.

    Well done and your srt 4 is very nice. Love the Motec read outs too. What is that radar looking device on the wind screen? After watching the video it shows Lou Giglotti in his WC Vette at Sebring kicking some butt. What a driver!!

    Racelogic - PerformanceBox(PBOX) similar to the VBOX. Basically a GPS based DAQ system. I always run a PBOX on track so that I can compare and overlay with other cars. All you need is a 12V power source and the PBOX does the rest. Great little device for $400.

    There was a lady, last name Stout, driving one of these cars this past weekend at Texas World Speeday for Viper Days/NARRA event. That car was moving around the track pretty fast and she was racing with the comp coupes.

    Kathy Stout - yellow SRT-4
    Jim Stout - "plum crazy" WC Comp Coupe

    We ran with them earlier this year at the Sebring NARRA event.

    Yes, that's them. I didn't make it over to see for myself, but I was told that their race trailer looks like mission control at NASA.

    Nice Neon, looks like fun. I wish Dodge still made the Neon SRT-4, although I am sure the caliber makes a fine grocery getter.

    C'mon you big sissy, stay on the gas through Bishop's Bend. :) Kidding. Great run, great lines. Wish I could have made it.

    That PBOX looks great. Camera is clear too, what kind is it?

    Yeah, I am getting killed on lap times all the way from turn 13 to 17. I am planning to run full throttle thru Bishop's Bend next time as the car felt planted, but I may need to cautious lift some(~20% off full) before going over the 2nd rumble strip. This was my 1st time driving the car over 90mph, as our local Gainesville track is slow compared to Sebring. The PBOX is a nice unit, about 6 guys at the Gainesville track use them, my wife has one in her SRT-4 also. The camera is a VIO cam. The video overlay is created in Trackvision using data from the Motec because it includes the throttle, brake, rpm, and gear position data.

    I can confirm that - Nasa Misson Control for sure. Amazingly laid out - his son did all the research and design.

    Kathy blew her engine on Friday. They carry an extra for the Viper and the Neon. Very Nice people and fast drivers and part of the team that now runs Narra.
