Default Trans Am vs S R T-4 Caliber vs Mazdaspeed 3

Here are some videos from the past couple of weekends.

First Video
Cars:
S R T-4 Caliber, mods: dont recall, but about 350-360 at the wheels
'99 Trans Am A4(my car), mods: QTP Headers into Moroso Spiralflows dumped, Volant Cold Air Intake, de-baffled WS6 hood, LS6 intake, Ported TB, Untuned
Mazdaspeed 3, Mods: bolt-ons and a bad *** driver mod putting down about 280 at the wheels


First Race: Me and Caliber. Mazdaspeed is camera car. Went from a 50 roll. Caliber spun so only went to about 120. Got him by about a car or so.

Second Race: Me vs Mazdaspeed
Went from 50 to about 110. About 4 cars.

Third Race: Caliber vs Mazdaspeed
Same as above.

Fourth Race: Me vs Caliber Round 2 (Awesome Race)
Mazda is chase car again but cant keep up. Went from 60 to 140. We're even til about 100 then the Caliber puts 3/4 of a car on me. At 120 I start pulling back and get a car by 140.

All in all a fun night. That Caliber is fast.

Good runs. A vendor over on srtforums made over 500fwhp in a caliber srt on an untouched bottom end. They are no slouches when modded.

Completely different engines. Same displacement, but with variable valve timing and a slightly larger stock turbo as well as some other changes.

Well, they do have a n/a version that are powering 99% of the ones you see on the road. However, the srt version is packing a 2.4l turbo making 280hp.

Wasn't the caliber marketed towards manly men? And didn't it end up being the #1 or #2 car most driven by gay men?
