    WRX and Neon doing 100+ on I-95 N (Philly area) last night at 2:30 am...?

    Just figured I'd post to see if the guy is on here who flew by me in a WRX, with a Neon not far behind him. I'm not sure of the color of the WRX, but I dont think it was a light color. The Neon was white. I was driving back from the bars with my friends and they flew by... 120 mph maybe? Anyways, post up if that was you...

    It wasn't me, but I've had my 1997 Neon SOHC over 115mph.

    Josh, you've ridden in my Neon. It is an excellent handling car. The brakes are the real problem with going over 100mph. Once I was booking down the NE extension at well over 100mph and the brakes we badly warped by the time I reached the tollbooths.

    Doing the NE Extension at well over 100 mph?

    Didn't you learn from the first time that happened in the WRX?
