OK, me and my buddy were out on a little thursday night cruise. We were sittin at a stop light when this shiny black Dodge Neon pulls up. :LOL: Yes, a Neon. At least it didn't have hubcaps, and it had a hellova wing on tha back thar. I look over and smile :ninja: and he revs it up and i'm like, this will be fun. OK, we take off and the thing is 2 car lenghts ahead of me by 35-40mph. I let up and my bottom lip starts to quivver as my so called friend starts to make fun of me. :bawl: I was dumbfounded. :insane: We were talkin to some cats in a parkin lot and my loudmouth friend told them what happened. They said it was a SRT? or somethin like that and it has beat several mustang gt's in town. :read: JUST thought i would warn u if a neon pulls up and wants to race, DONT DO IT! :crazy: Jake

word, they run about 14 flat bone stock, and there are turbo upgrades from mopar that have them close to 12s. i thinks its americas way to tell imports not to fuck w/ us, so we beat them at their own game. :ninja: :LOL: :guns:

Same thing happened when the GN came out and GM killed that one since it was spanking GM's fleet machine.

I never realized that the SRT-4 neons were that fast...i know to be careful now...it is pretty badass that some domestic companies are producing quick 4 bangers that will show up the majority of the imports...and for jsut over $20,000 it isn't a bad price.
