240hp stock? wow
You just found that out?
I dont pay much attention to the Domestic community..
You've never heard of an SRT-4 before ?
I've "heard" of them, didnt know they put out that much power though.. Not exactly the talk of the town you know
Fuck, I'm gonna be embaressed if I lose a race to a neon! lol
Against one of those, as sad as it is to say, you will.....
240 horses with kick my ass! lol
Even at 240hp, they are probably under-rated.
Guys in the states have been dyno-ing them off the showroom floor at around 220-230hp. Stock they'll run with a WRX.
Plus, there are factory Stage 1, 2 and 3 upgrade kits that you can order from your dealer, and keep your warranty.
If it wasn't such a shitty platform, it would make a very nice car.
Yea yea, the motors are strong..blah blah. But there's a jizzload of NVH, and remember, you'd be driving a neon with a ginourmous wing and silly bodykit that STILL looks like a 4X4
Its still a neon though.....lol. Just like once a slut, always a slut
What I did hear though, is that their turbo system is basically all 1 component and cant be replaced by changing "pieces" of it.. dont know how true that is though..
I'll point that out next time Nick's Neon is in the running for FTD at a Solo2.
Im sorry, but the White VTEC neon in Sackville ruined any chance I ever had of even remotely likeing the styling of a Neon.. Its Hideous.. I think he went into crappy tire and maxed out his credit card on garbadge..
I don't doubt that it's a fast car...it'll take my car in a straight line! (not that it makes a difference), and kill alot of much faster stuff. As a solo1/2 car, I would actually seriously consider it, but for an everyday car...pshh...no way. POS
That thing still have the rainbow tint? That car is some fucking ugly I must say..lol
Does this guy live in Rockingham and have like a silver colored Neon with 15's and tint all the way around? Possibly "R Racing" in the window?
Man, you name it, its on the car... Its sickining
Only way I'd consider owning one would be leasing the fucker. Pound the living shit out of it for af ew years while under full warranty then return it when i'm done no questions asked
Nick used to live in Rockingham, but moved to Bedford. Silver-ish Neon coupe, on stock wheels (may be 15"s) and it's tinted. No R-Racing Stickers, but he does have his Atlantic Sports Car Club stickers on it.
Make not mistake, that car is quick. Quick enough in a straight line, but it'll eat up a lot of people in the turns... plus the fact the driver is nuts helps.
Yep, thats the guy.. He's a tool.. He actually parked and sat outside a bank 1 night (in the car) waiting for me to come out with his lights out and followed me out of the parking lot , pulled up beside me and sat at the lights revving a while back.. That was in my SOHC Civic, I've ran into him in the teg once or twice too.. Back then it could BARELY beat the Civic, and both encounters with the Teg proved to be a waste of gas for me.. He's one of those one's that sit's 20 feet back at a light and starts goin when the other light goes yellow..
Er... that doesn't sound like Nick.
He's always been pretty anti-street racing.
Does he have a brother that drives it then? i know its the same guy I see driving it all the time. Used to live in Rockingham right off of Flamingo there..
I fucking HATE peeps that sit back 20 ft or so and start goin as the light is changing and then throw their 4 ways on like 50 ft in front of you.. Ricers..
That's definately not Nick!
Doesn't sound like him. His car is a sand color too...dunno if yer confusing the colors
Yeah, I don't think that is Nick, not his thing I don't think, plus, that Neon would probably hang pretty well against your teg, it not anywhere near stock.
Well Im referring to last summer.. I started the summer with the Civic and ended it with the teg.. It wasnt fast then.. i dont know about now though.. It may not SOUND like him... but it was.. it was definatly the same car.. My buddy knows him too..
Nick did link to my website from his with the description 'A local Hon-DUH site but has good pictures'. That was years ago before he was soloing though.
The SRT-4 for 2004 has an LSD, something it desperately needed for 03. I suspect you'll see it be pretty competent in soloing. Can't say that I'd be looking in its direction if I had $30k burning a hole in my pocket though.
Well, maybe, but things sure don't add up to me.
I don't recall any stickers on the car at all, I don't recognize the car when I see it, he passed me on the highway once, I didn't know it was him, looks like a stock Neon, lowered a bit I guess.
It does move pretty good though, DOHC Neons are 150 stock with a bunch of torque, I believe its cammed with the usual stuff as well.
The tint on all windows and the wheels that were on it identified it to me.. Im thinkin he had BSA's or something like that on it last year.. They were 15's though. There was a sticker in the rear side window, cant remember what it was though.. no biggie.. I was just laughing at his roll on from the lights, haha..
You should show your black ass up to the track and laugh at his lap times
How can you compare lap times to a ricer roll on at a stop light? Thats some shit you'd pull with the SOHC accordian.. Im sure he is a good racer, never said otherwise, but I bet he dosent start 20 ft behind the competition to get a run on to get a better lap time does he?
and yes, thats the car...
that thing tonight in HFX I think...
Who rides that blue neon in car shows anyways?????
a 27k+ tax dollar neon? ouch, fast yes, fast depreciation yes, any sort of interior that is half ass nice, no
