i was at a stop light and a neon r/t pulled up next to me, i have an auto i decided to power shift, he wanted to race me , so when the light turned green i gave her a rip i was like three car lenghts ahead of him before he was anywhere away from the stop light, it sounded like a stick also. those cars are slow.

What year 6 do you have? If you have the 2nd gen. V6 of course you beat him. I have a 1st gen... now that would be a bad @ss kill! I think that, that would be a good race.

I dont know about those cars performance wise, but i did watch one do the sickest f&cking burnout i have ever seen in my life. He was smoking them in first and then he shifted to second and got them going. He said his speedo said about 50mph, he was bouncing on the rev limiter the whole time. His car was bone stock too. The only thing he did to it was solid motor mounts. That was a sick neon.

I just finnished up turbo charging a neon.
used a Hahn Racecraft kit supposedly put it up to 245 hp, and man does that sucker pull, hard!! haven't raced it in the 6, but if those are correct #'s, it would be interesting

well powershifting is basically shifting your car manually thus turning it into a manual car and manual cars basically go .5 seconds seconds faster than an auto in the 1/4 mile so its not that much.. im guessing if u have a car length powershifting, you prob would be tied if you didnt power shift... 1 or 1.5 car lenghts is the difference in a race... not much and definetly not worth 3g's... take it ez

power shifting is pressing over drive button and driving lieka a manual, going from first to second then third and then over drive again.
