I have been getting messed with by every SRT-4 owner in DE and PA lately. I finally got a chance to race a modded one. At 60mph we did a 3-4 gear run and I had him by over a car and a half. I waited til he caught up to get on it again once in 4th and pulled away again. Came to redlight down the road and talked briefly over our exhausts somewhat. He was stage1 from dealer but added tbe catless(they have no muffler stock, just cats and resonator) boost control and a few other things I couldn't hear. I'm fully catless w/VF30+tmi(txs stage4+). He says to me not to race here(at light) because he just got pulled over on this busy road we're on.(This was at 11pm and not busy now) Light turns green and he dumps the clutch. I get the clutch out slowly(he's still next to me spinning) and I mash it and bye bye Neon. Short shifted into 3rd, to let him fly by so I could hear his car. Man they do sound good when they are catless. Pops and craclkes with "loud" turbo sound. This one had the stupid RT stripes on it(black w/white stripes). Now I just need to find the guy w/ st.2 and a super loud BOV who blows it off every time he sees me coming in opposite direction. The only time I could of raced this one, I was TXS st.3 and had a bad oil seal in my td-o4. Smoking like crazy. So I let it go. The one I raced on Thur. night had a passenger in car, but still got spanked. He had the best, funniest, vanity tag. Let's just say he's not timid about driving a POS. That's the only hint you're getting.
Cool little cars they are.
