Stanced SRT- Clayton Best | Dodge Caliber SRT4

I meet Clayton for the first time at a University of South Florida Bi-Weekly meet. It was a coincidence that we were working on his feature around the same time. I must say that this car is simply amazing, I even got to hear it roar. Clayton’s dedication to this car makes me like it even more. Everything has a purpose from the styling, weight reduction, to performance. This is one ride that defines form can equal function. Stanched in the day and burning rubber at night.

Why or when do you find yourself driving slow?
I drive slow to simply enjoy the feeling of driving in style. I find myself driving slow everywhere I go, unless I go to the track where unleash the beast. One reason I love driving slow, is because as I am cruising down the highway, people are breaking their necks looking at the car as they pass me. That alone gives me the feeling that I must be doing something right. I also love driving slow, because not only do I people admiring my car, but I also avoid getting tickets and save gas.

Any Future Plans for your car?
I plan on going big turbo and also upgrading the fuel system to support it. My main plans for the car, is to get more suspension parts so I can stance it out even more.Being that there isn’t much out there for this car and rarely seeing them, my goal was to show that Domestics can roll hard and be different as well.
