Hows the car anything new besides the high voltage? Is it faster, slower, anything break, race any cars hopefully not leaving the club (I did'nt say anybody was drinking; why I never drink in a club, earlier post by somebody else) I never really understood if you could get siris to work in Frenchie land, if you did how is it. I guess what I'm trying to say is how about an update for us underclassman who have yet to grad e ate to mopar status yet.
I've got a little over 1100 km's on it now in the month I've had it. No problems whatsoever with the car other than black gets dirty fast. I've always had black vehicles so this is nothing new to me. Anyone not into washing cars shouldn't buy black. The roads up here are terrible. I hit a pot hole while excellerating from a traffic light and heard a really load bang from the right rear wheel area. At first I didn't know what it was then I realized the pot hole was one of those that always hit you bad. There's no use swerving to avoid it 'cause there's another one beside it.
Not that I'm really into it, BUT
I can't seem to find anyone who wants to take me on. I did have a guy in a Grand Prix try, but it was so pathetic it wasn't worth my effort. I just want to see how fast it is to some real competition. A guy in a 5.0L Mustang GT raced me a little a couple of weeks ago. He had no idea what I was driving. He rolled his window down at the next lights and asked if I thought I could take him, all the while looking at my front wheel. That's a tell tale sign as they see the big wheels and brake calipers. I said I thought I could and proved it. Then a Viper pulled up along side his doors, geared down and left him in the dust. The Viper pulled along side me and we both smiled and drove on.
I'm sure up here a lot of people don't even know what type of car this is, let alone that it's an SRT8. There seems to be only a handfull of 300's here that I've spotted, and believe me, I've been looking. There must be more but I just haven't seen too many. I've gotten some thumbs up and nods by the kind of people that look like drug dealers or pimps to me. I think it's just because they think it looks cool. It would make a great pimpmobile though. One thing for sure, it seems to appeal to women of all ages. You can just tell by the "look" they give it. I know my pompus assed bank manager next door neighbour likes it. I catch him looking at it from the corner of his eye as he's pulling out in his Ford station wagon or Honda minivan loaded with 4 snot nosed kids and a snooty pregnant wife. I think he's breeding the next generation of mini bank managers.
Hey, careful on the "Frenchy" land. I'm from Ontario!
Kind of a touchy subject to some. I took a year long French course in Quebec and after speaking nothing but French 8 hours a day, you get a little sick of it. Our professors didn't speak any English so it was quite difficult at first. If you're in any kind of federal government employment up here, it's pretty much a necessity to become functionally bilingual these days. If the CRTC ever gets off its bureaucratic ass, maybe we'll get Siris satellite radio some day. Same goes for our limited GSM cell phone network system.
