since you calmed down and stopped flaming and making inappropriate comments, it has gotten better. 3 weeks til the neon comes? do you have mods yet for it or are you going to learn the car first?

just curious, but it's still FWD correct? is the drivetrain beefed up, or can you not run DR's or slicks? what gears do they come with?

the car doesnt grip too well obviously from a dig ill have LSD on my 04 which will help but it will still suck. THe car isnt a first gear car anyways 2nd gear hits and boost climbs and thats when its bye bye time. And from a roll its even quicker.

that's too bad it's FWD. get the manual man! i guess for a FWD car taking off the front sway bar could actually hurt you instead of helping like it does on RWD cars. or do FWD cars with a limited slip and sticky tire tug fine without a sway bar? one day i'd like to have an import just because it's so different from what i'm used to to mess around with and has as a daily driver. good luck on seeking out GT's, it's possible, i've seen it happen. quite sad, but oh well. i'm more of a mustang guy myself. if you ever got the money a RWD conversion would earn you better times and respect if nothing else! are they given IRS or are they still horrible handlers?

1. not sure about hte suspension. 2.The car only comes in 5 speed so. 3.Sway bar needs to stay on. 4. Its not an import. 5. I will smoke GT's bone stock so it wont really be seeking it out. 6. Not really gonna worry about a RWD conversion. Quite a few guys r running 12's now and thats without many mods and being it as my daily driver 12's would be more then enough speed for me.

eh, you're right, it's not an import. i'd blame it on something, but i'm under no influences right now. i guess i just think small compact FWD cars and i think import. do you have some track experience, you're speaking pretty bold words for someoe that doesn't yet even own the car.

i have no track exp or skill driving a 5 speed yet. This will all come in time of course. My driving skills and my srt wont equal much for awhile till i get it down pat. But then again im not gonna be hot rodding it around for the first 500 miles anyways. hopefully by late summer ill be good to go. You can call it a "tuner" car. I think thats the best general term for a turbo 4 cyl

goodl uck learning a 5 spd, it's fun. if you could learn on an old truck or jeep, you'd save your new car from the torment. i had to learn on my stang when i got her home. heck, my dad drove her home even! automatics just aren't fun unless you have an ungodly amount of power. vettes are fun autos because they don't have inherently crappy auto trannies like mustangs do. it's all good though, you'll see once you start learning. try starting her off in second gear at first!

Well, go ahead an order a new clutch.

Get in your driveway and drive forward a litle bit and then back up. Best way learn how to get it rolling without roasting your tires or burning the clutch out.

And don't let the clutch grab and the give it a little gas on a hill. Use the brake. That is the garunteed fastest way to burn the clutch out.

uh you can try learning in your driveway, but if i had done that, i'd have stalled out and plowed into my driveway.

yeah, if you live somewhere hilly, use the brakes all the time, don't even downshift unless you're going from a fast zone to a slower zoned road.

i dunno those have potential too. From a dig stock for stock i dont see that lil SRT getting any traction. I spose it could depend on lots of factors but just generally thinking youll beat every stock car stock for stock in every race case doesnt make sense. The majority of times yes, but theres going to be slip ups too. As far as anyones concerned... a win is a win

your forgetting why turbo 4's are so quick. Their topend is better than that of a v8.

The GT will own it off the line but once the turbo spools that neon will catch up and pass a stock GT.

If Monkey can pull mid 13's consistantly, no stock GT will touch him. The best stock/1-2 mods GT's I've seen runs 13.5-6 at BEST.

off the line a GT would prb get me good ive already said that. But once the turbo spools up if i drive well im not really gonna fear too many GT's in stock form. Especially the 94-98's. But ya thats stock. Mods r mods so who knows whats gonna happen when that comes into play. Im still gonna duck from LS1's tho

No replacement for displacement. Live by it. Fear it. Respect it.

I watched an LS1 go 35 to 145 in nothing. Auto too. They are beasts. :yes:

If you mean the rims are worth more twice as much as the car itself, then yes, they are ALL pimp.

LS1's run low-mid 13s bone stock.

If monkey can run mid-high 13s bone stock he wont be too far behind.
