Normally a E46 M3 beats a stock SRT4 older gens is a toss up.
Agreed there are some freeks... but most don't put down that much...
also... the cars that you heard of doing 13's is probably in the US.. and as we all know, almost every car is faster in the US... for some reason, be it the lower air density or whatnot...
from what I've read.. most trap around 99-101 mph... in that case an M3 "should" be faster (E46).
but then again, my buddies E36 M3 ran 13.4 bone stock, so what can I tell u.. lol
