    Thumbs up REAL SRT-4 dyno numbers and 1/4 mile timeslip

    These are REAL dyno numbers and a REAL 1/4 mile time slip.

    I really could care less if its a "Neon". This car has major potential. Stick some drag radials on this car and your seeing 13.7s STOCK.

    14.1 at 99mph with a 2.1 60ft and only 700 miles on the clock. The more miles on this car the quicker it will get. Other sources have also seen the SRT-4 run 102-103mph trap times. That's freakin awesome. I'm sure all the REAL enthusiasts will appreciate this car.

    1. Throw that spoiler in the garbage

    2. Invest in a boost controller and drag radials.

    3. Take it to the track and run 13.3's all day

    Definitely a sweet performance car. Especially for the price. Wonder how long it'll take to gain some respect from people, if it ever does.
    Too bad I couldn't afford a WRX, but life goes on........hopefully......

    It's got my respect. I've always been a muscle car guy, and they've always been "lightweight, no luxuries, cheap" (hemi dart, hi-po Mustang, etc. etc.) - the Neon is the latest in a long line of Detroit flexing.

    True true, but I was talking more along the lines of the "it's still a neon" comments. Granted it's not the nicest car, but performance was it's goal to start off with, and people should say "damn that neon's fast" instead of "damn that fast car has a horrible interior". Just my opinion.

    Reading that thread makes me what to go out and buy an LS1 Fbody.

    I do miss my LS1. You know you can pick up a low mileage LS1 for pretty cheap.
    A couple of the comments that were mentioned by the LS1 guys is that the Neon SRT-4 is a "cute car" and they wouldn't want to be seen in one.
    I agree. I still think it looks like a girls car or maybe a 16 year olds car. But when they start running 12s at the track with simple mods I may change my mind.

    I said the same thing about that wing but they claim its "fully functional" not to mention it needs to be dropped a little, mainly in the back.

    Shaitiger,

    Thanks for sharing that info. That is truly amazing for a $20k car. I believe those are about the same numbers by '96 LT1 M6 was putting to the wheels.

    It's still a Neon!


    But I'd buy one if they didn't sell Rexes and Evos in the USA.

    If all you have is $20k for a new car, the Neon is your only choice.

    If you have the $25k+ for a WRX or $30k+ for an Evo or STi, then obviously you don't care what is being sold at the $20k level.

    That sounds fine, but I didn't start this thread to compare it to other cars or what they cost. Its about what the SRT-4 is capable of. Thanks

    Very impressive! I look forward to test-driving one (but especially the SRT-10...drool). I hope, for Daimler-Chrysler's sake, that the reliability is better than it has been on lesser Neons and other D/M's. I've honestly never thought highly of Neons, but maybe this will change things if it holds up. Yeah, I know it's not technically a Neon, but you know what I mean.

    Also, is anyone else concerned about what will happen to all the testosterone-drunk high school kids when they get their hands on a 215+hp FWD car? It seems like a potential disaster in the making! I mean, at least AWD can save your butt once in a while.

    All in all, I'm glad there's more competition with the Rex out there. It will only help us consumers in the end. Let the hp/torque/traction wars begin (err...continue).

    The one problem I ever had with this car is why didnt they make it rwd. I have absolutly no desire to drive a 300hp fwd car open differential or not and I know alot of people that feel that way too.
