The new SRT-4's best time was made two weeks ago at NHRA's World Finals where it ran 9.34 for the quickest pass ever by a 2000+ Model Neon (in time trials) and later ran 152mph (in a semi-final round lost) for the fastest trap speed by a 2000+ chassis. This car runs an 3 speed automatic trans like the Howell's car uses, but it built in-house by Phatridz.
Len Ayala should get a mention as well. The Hahn Racraft Neon has run the best of 9.44 and 147mph with a 2.4L DOHC engine and 3 spd automatic trans. Len's Neon was the first Neon into the 11s and 10s also without the help of wheelie bars. I should also mention that Len's Neon did 10[email protected] while still a street car that was driven on the weeekends. I should also say that Len's car was contructed on a limited budget and has pretty much remained the same since the 2001 season save for some minor updates/upgrades.
The fastest N/A or All Motor Neon belongs to fellow Team Phatridz member Scott "Mo Daddy" Mohler who took the 2002 NDRA Pro Stock championship in only his second years of racing full-time. He finished second in the defunt NIRA All Motor class championship last year and another second in the IDRC All Motor Class last year. He also has a two year winning streak at Rivercity Raceway in San Antonio, TX (IDRC 01 and 02).
We just started in Rally this year (2002), and to date, the Dodge SRT-4 has won two events on the SCCA circuit and is leading the Manufacturing Championship.

i know i knowThis 1995 automatic, outfitted mainly by Gary Howell but raced by Randy Williamson, ran a 12.401 second quarter mile at 109 mph. The street legal Neon has its stock sheet metal, with a standard stock 2.0 block fitted with custom JE pistons (and necessary modifications to make them fit and work well). The crank has been lightened, with six pounds of counterweights removed, and an ACR DOHC computer replaced the stock SOHC version to get a higher speed limiter without advancing the timing. The head is stock, but ported by Gary, with oversized valves and a Crane 158-0012 cam (using an adjustable cam gear). Howell's own 55 mm throttle body lets more air in, though the stock plastic intake is retained because of its smoothness (the Neon was the first car to use plastic intakes, and they really do work well).
