Well i was on my way to the track when i stopped and got some gas. While i was there i saw a nice silver srt-4. I asked the guy the price on it and he said the one without hte sunroof is like $26000 :eek: , now thats a pretty good price. So i was like cool and went my way. I get to a red light and the srt is in front of me, so my causins are like lets hear the exhaust on it, so i lower me window and we listen. It was ok nottin hot, just sounded a little raspy. So we are driving and i see that the driver is driving hard so i was like what the hell lets try it. I get beside him and as soon as i get near he downshifts and takes off, so i do the same and its pretty close and then i start to pull on him :confused: . So we hit a red and i am behind him. Now i was confused because from what i can tell they trap in the 100-105 range and are rated at like 250whp and 278wtq. So i have a little disscussion with my causins and friend in the car and the light turns green and we go again, this time there was a curve in the street so i took it easy but the srt went hard and he was all over 2 lanes so at this point we figure that he cant drive. Finally we get a small strech of open road and i try to get beside him to signal him to go and give him a :-[ but again he takes off and i do the same and at this point i am about to pass him but he lets off. All in all it was a good experience. I would have loved to run him from a stop but the guy turned off. Those are some fast cars but i still dont think i want a noen @-

they are 230hp and 250tq...and i doubt thats at the wheel
From what i have read, those numbers are very conservative and they are dynoing at about that or more at the wheels...

the fastest all stock SRT time I have seen was a 13.9!!! Most drivers are putting them in the mid to high 14sec range. I don't care how much hp/tq you have, if you can't hook right and can't drive then it doesn't matter.

If you run a 14.3 like the sig says, the bad driving more than makes up for it!!!

That price is for the 04's with more power, LSD and the sunroof. My fiend bought his with tag for just under 21,000. His is an O3 of course and he got the rarest color..........yellow:(

Yea they are fast, I beat my friend by 2 cars though. It was still on break in though and it was only running 8psi. It now runs 11psi....................I NEED TO RUN HIM AGAIN!!!!!:p He also now has and intake. There bypass valves sound so damn good!!!

Shes runnin 18psi BTW;)

i raced an srt-4 and got beat by about a fender. i was a whole car ahead all the way through first and second gear. my best 1/4 time is a 14.5. so i would guess that the driver of the neon i raced is capable of getting at least a 14.4 out of it.

im from the land of oz, and have no idea what an srt-4 is. could someone please give some details and specs on it? i have gathered it is a chrysler neon. is it fwd? what type of turbo, boost, type of motor (size, sohc/dohc, etc) and yeah, just some details on it. this little car sounds interesting.

i wonder why they havent released it here? our performance chrysler is some ugly thing called the crossfire. ive only seen the commercials for it though.

well the srt-4 is a hopped up neon with a dynoed 245hp and 250 tq, the second fastest Chrysler built car, I wonder what the first one is:rolleyes: , they are a 2.4 litre transverse mounted four cylinder turbo. And a guy here in somerset has one with nitrous, yes nitrous, its silver with black wheels, and no, its not that fast. He barely beat the new eclipse v-6...he can't drive for beans...


And everything under the hood is factory warrented;) BUT its still a dodge, and its still a [email protected]

The only thing I dont like about them is there half-ass. The 04 are getting better with LSD, sunroof, rear powered windows, and more power................Im guessing 04.5 they'll add a nice sound system. Maybe they'll throw in some Infinity Sterling or gold speakers and amp??

Yes, the Neons are insanely ugly. They always have been, and a little body work did not change that.

However, I have made fun of Neon drivers since they came out in 95, and now they are running 13's stock.

This SRT-4 is the biggest reason why I want to either a. turbo my car or b. buy a Z06.

I can't stand the idea of losing to a Neon. It's called a "Neon", come on. What says "high school girl" more than that.

I think the MX-6 is one of the best looking cars ever to be produced, but a damn Neon will beat me by over a full second in the 1/4. It is shameful.
