While that Neon is beyond sickening, I think it's time to give it a rest. They will still bash you no matter what.

PS-They are referring to an average Neon, do you know how much cash is riding under the hood of that thing?

could be a different engine
i really never understood engine swapping
becaus the mounting frame in the engine bay is different and it has to link with th transmission it always seemed costly to me
but hey if it can beat a viper all is possible
notice how the guy yells "IS THAT A NEON??!?"
id yell that too

I don't think any of us ever said the neon had no potential.

I don't think anyone here thinks the SRT4 is a "turd". Personally, I like it.

Just like to point out. While I cant determine whether that was a 12 or 13 second pass (it lokos like the Neon ran a 12.3x or 13.3x). Hard to even count on your own from when they start because the video starts almsot right when they start except it's a bout a half second off.

Either way I can come to this conclusion, if that Neon ran 12.3x then that Viper is slow as hell running a 12.70x/12.80x (it looked like). The GTS Viper stock was a 12.3ish second car (450hp version). And if the neon did in fact go 13.3x then my god the Viper bogged down or launched in 3rd gear, because a high 13 second time is unheard of in ANY Viper.

I respect the fact the SRT-4 has loads of power and handles fairly decently. But I still wouldn't buy it over an RSX-S or new Civic Si. I can't ever own a Neon.

i can understand that
but those are impressive numbers for a neon
SRT-4 is a kickin ride
what it is 220 or 240?
and for your post about the viper being slow thats a possibility
but then again even if it were a little faster its still impressive for a neon to be able to keep up or come close to beating a viper

Takes a lot of balls form any fwd econocar to keep up with a stock Viper.

SRT-4 makes a lot of power (puts down like 210-215fwhp). But I cant get over the still-neon looks.

I know the Viper is slow i nthat video for a Viper. We know it either ran a 12.70ish or 13.70ish run.

The SRT-4 is an excellent performer...but they made a mistake in that it looks almost exactly like a normal Neon. What they should have done is given it a separate look, sort of the like Honda's Civic/Civic Si line, just something to give it it's own identity and separate it more from it's economical sisters.
