A stock SRt4 Dynos at 230 WHP @ 2900Lbs. I am pretty certain it would beat all but the latest M3 stock.

Sorry I tend to disagree stock M3 vs Stock SRT4, the deciding factor would be the driver.

if you think that the driver is losing a second sure, but both of these cars are easy to launch, one has limited slip and one is RWD. If your taking the absolute WORST driver there is and comparing to the BEST, the m3 puts up a fighting chance.

I keep saying this when it comes to street racing there are too many factors.
I’m no slouch when it comes to racing vehicles, well at least in my mind.
I have raced a stock SRT4 with my stock 95M3 and I know to some it’s hard to believe; however I destroyed the SRT4, by the time we hit 100Kmh I was easily 6 or 8 car lengths ahead. Conclusion “Bad Driver”
My wife driving the M3, had an black SRT4 pull up besides her wanting to race, he was revving his engine at the light, when he shifted from 1st to 2nd and to 3rd he grinded his gears every time. Conclusion “Bad Driver” This might have been the same SRT4 that I raced with the 540i.
I raced a late model Dodge Viper who should have raped me, however I won. Conclusion “Scared Driver”

Both the SRT4 and BMW M3 are rated with the same Hp and Torque figures give or take a few numbers. The SRT4 is lighter that should make it much faster, however BMW delivers the power more efficiently then the Dodge. Coming back to weight, the SRT4 is lighter then the M3. Now the question is how does each manufacturer weigh their vehicles. The SRT4 weight is with no fluids or “dry weight”. Most BMW’s weights are with all fluids including full tank of fuel plus they add 175 pounds for the average weight of a driver. This was what I was told about 10 years ago by BMW, I don’t know if info has changed.

Back to my first line “too many factors”
1) Driver experience
2) Lane conditions
3) Engine condition (is it tuned up properly)
4) Overall mechanical condition of the vehicle
5) Tires
-Make of tire
-Worn out tires.
6) Weight of the vehicle
- Driver Weight
- Fuel on board
- Stereo equipment


So when people tell me that they destroyed a lot more powerful vehicle, I tend to believe them.

You don't have to be an excellent driver to launch a naturally aspirated, rear wheel drive car. It does take quite a bit of skill to launch a forced induction, front wheel drive car effectively.

i'm pretty sure the SRT-4 could take an E36 M3 off the line. But what i don't think people realize is that its extremely hard to launch, if you don't know what your doing the whole car will hop off the ground. knowing that i'd put my money on the M3 off the line.

Depending on power rating of the engine.
Example 318Is I used to rev the engine to 5000Rpm and ride the clutch all the way through.
Try that with my 540i. If you are not carefull you will just light up the rear tire.

I was racing my buddy in his Caravan...too much wheelspin and we were neck in neck for the first 50 meters. Then I let up the gas a little and it hooked up...bye bye..
