    it's been the same argument since day one, but let's face it, although i prefer the WRX, if drag racing's my thing, then the SRT just does it better. you can always build a faster WRX, but it will cost way more money, and who knows how good you will be to your tranny.

    when looking at the overall package, i think the WRX holds its own, and in the end I prefer it. but start giving credit where credit is due, those SRT's are arguably the steal of the century.

    PSIchick beat a Viper at the strip with like $4K in mods...you can do that with a WRX, but it's gonna cost a helluva lot more

    Roll speed matters a lot

    From a 35mph roll I did well, from a 50+ mph roll the Neon pulls and keeps going slowly away. Didn't get to go from a stop.

    I would imagine a stock wrx would pull on my srt from a 35 mph roll. But once I get it to hook up I'd real him in quick.

    But, that's why I like to try and race people from a couple of diff speeds. With different power curves and gearing, the speed you start at can make a huge diff. In my case traction owns me. lol

    There are people on the srt forums that have traction problems in a 3rd gear roll on drag radials. lol With out brake boosting.

    Best answer yet. Could of not said it any better myself.

    Any Neon to me is a disposeable car, let alone is still a POS dodge.

    There is a lot of spite for the SRT4 eh.....

    Ive only had the SRT4 for about a month now and im very satisfied with it. Ive read about how the interior is so much nicer in the WRX and why'll it may be a tad bit true, it's not like the WRX interior is anything to brag about.

    I was in no way shape or form getting rid of the WRX when looking to buy a SRT4, to me that would be a downgrade. I bought it for the wife and now i have something else to tinker with.

    As far as what is faster we all know the answer to that. Who will win off the line is also a no brainer. I cant really compare the cars. I dont expect to go race my woman to find out if my WRX would beat the stock SRT4, and im not letting anyone else drive it. Having driven both i know my WRX pulls harder, but ive also know realized how much turbo lag i really do have after driving the SRT4.

    My srt came with MUCH better tires, and a stiffer suspension. It has alot less body roll, but what do I know I drive a neon. And we wont even get into what the ACR's have. It must suck driveing a car made for the corners, that can't beat a stock neon.

    If I wasn't lazy I'd look for that vid of the srt passing the wrx at the track.

    good to know i can get the 26mm front sway and 19mm rear to combat the body roll. Have you driven a regular SRT4? How does it compare body roll wise to your ACR.

    I admit the SRT4 makes me feel uneasy in turns with a decent amount of speed.

    Your going to talk **** about a dodge, when you clearly know nothing about cars?

    How do you add more PSI to the turbo if needed?

    I may not have been clear, sorry mine is not a acr. I still feel it has less roll to than my wrx did. Although it's deff still there, so the sway bars are a great investment. Some friends of mine have them on there car, made a huge improvement.

    I haven't done anything in the handling department yet, to worried about the power.

    let's just break it down: Neon ACR vs. WRX.

    price: WRX is more expensive.

    drivetrain: AWD is simply awesome, and FWD sucks. however, you can power shift the SRT all day long without any problems. you can baby a WRX tranny, and it'll still have issues.

    engine: boxer engine > all. but again, SRT's engine is so much more durable.

    suspension: slight edge to ACR. both cars inspire lots of confidence, but much less body roll on the ACR.

    steering feel: WRX.

    brakes: ACR.

    my choice: WRX but give credit where credit is due.

    Actually its not that I do not know anything about cars. But yes this is my fost turbo car ever owned.

    I always had luxury. IS300, 3.2TL and G35 all stock.

    I am sure I owned more cars then you had GFs or BF's if you swing that way.
