Last Friday I had a challenge from my homey. He sead "I just got a car and I want to know what it can do" He has a 90' Mazda Miata. Any way he told me that he was racing a 2004 Yellow SRT4 Neon 1st. And I told him lets just go at it all at once. So we did.
They both had the take off on me I got a real bad take off the tires didn't want to hook up at all but as soon as they did and I was 2nd gear it was all over make that 2 more kills for the MK2 Supra!!!

sorry no, you lose.

unless you're turboed, there's no physical way you could touch even a stock SRT-4.

the normal neon looks almost exactly the same, the hood scoop is the only obvious difference (bumpers too if you know the differnce between the 2)

Other than the big ass FMIC and the mean growl from the exhaust? If you beat that Neon it wasn't an SRT-4 or he wasn't racing.

I saw the car about 30 min ago It did have a hoodscoop in the middle tord the front! And as far as badges there where none that I could see. I talked to the guy and tryd to convince him to show me what he had under the hood and told me "NO". I wanted to race him but its raining at the moment, :( My homey in the Mazda told me that he has something "NEW" under the hood I think its NOS maybe? Any way thats it.

OK, for all you who don't know what the SRT-4 is

http://www.caranddriver.com/article.asp?section_id=39&article_id=1868&page_number=1

I've talked to a salesman at Whitnell Dodge (Salem), and from what I've heard (and this guy seemed pretty honest for a car salesman), it would school any Mk II unless it was running forced induction or a 6M with nitrous. If only they would make an AWD model, that would be worth thinking about...

I saw one racing on the local street racing strip here in central CT. It was yellow and had the hood scoop and a big ass intercooler up front and a ricey wing. It was really fast for sure, I would never stand a chance in my MKII, but, when that neon is 18 years old lets see how it looks and runs! That thing will be falling apart in a year the way this kid was abusing it! Plus it's a Dodge in the first place. Too bad what has happened to mopar over the years. :cry:

People people, we're forgetting the most important thing. Regardless of what cars lost, THEY STILL LOST. I look at it as, hey, a supra beat 2 more cars... just my $0.02
