    EVO vs Neon with a TIP...

    Today I was cruisin enjoying the best weather I've scene in almost 5 months when a red neon comes flying up beside me with some sort of SRT-4 sticker prolly got it on ebay or something on the back and haha a small small very very shiny pepp boys muffler tip which had my passenger and I laughing almost violently cause i've never scene such a tiny tip that was so shiny.

    haha bottom line he gets next to me at a light and asks me if I'm ready to lose so i started laughing thinking he was just joking and having a good time. but he was very serious that his mighty NEON was about to take down an EVO. He asks what mods I have and I told him a 700 wet shot of NOS running on a turbo'd straight 6, and at this point just imagine a blank very confused face. Light turns green and he takes off while I just ease off the clutch crank the radio and cruise on down the road laughing at the tip.

    odds are I would of raced him and let him have some fun by putting her in 4th and telling him I've got the peddle to the floor. but by his swerving around and immature driving at 5PM in the middle of the day on the busiest streets in town it was much better that I just cruise.

    but I guess I got beat *sigh freakin neons haha.

    oh yeah this was a straight up SXT with a SRT-4 badge and a really shiny TIP I would never bs like this with a SRT-4 owner I give them mad props. Its just I hate every clown in town with a side ways baseball cap and a tip thinks there car is fast enough to swerve through town and think a legit EVO is going to be like OK your SXT looks crazy fast I better prove to myself I'm faster. Just so tired of it.

    I think the Neon would have owned you. That's the sad truth right there.

    HaHaHa, I rented a compact when I was in San Diego last week and they gave me a Neon SXT. It def. wasn't the WORST thing ever, but it was still pretty bad. It accelerated decently till about 60 then quit. Braking was a disaster too. I stepped on the brakes and the backs were locking up on me!

    I ran one of them last week. A base model Neon with a 4'' fart pipe. He tried to race me twice from a roll. I just played with him up to 80mph or so and then floored the gas. I pulled on him like he was going backwards.
    I guess those exhaust tips add 200+ hp.

    I also raced a new VW Jetta. This guy tried to out run me on the highway? I guess a lot of people don't know what my car is. They just assume its slow?
