My Other Car... a Dodge Neon!!!

Post by Admin on 6/2/2008, 11:39

This is what I drive when my Catera is in the shop for work... its was my first new car ever, I got it in 2001, and I have had it since then, its one of the best handling subcompacts that I have had my hands on.
I have modified the struts, springs sway bars, bushings and strut braces, it looks high but it handles and outhandles many unsuspecting, sometimes much faster cars...
Love seeing the facial expressions when people with much more expensive and nicer cars see me in the distance on entrance or exit ramps, thinking they can keep up...

The struts are from an ACR, the springs are from an SRT4 with maximum stiffness of 180FR/150RR lbs/in sway bars are a combination of 27/19mm FR/RR upgrade from a 17/14mm FR/RR

Other then that its mostly stock with just a mild exhaust and a KN filter... ohh and a 3spd ATX... here are the pictures.
I just upgraded to a new front bumper, no more fog lights and some new side skirts...
From this 2001 Buble looking bumper to...


To this 2002 Style bumper, sort rare for the Neons... Blue fogs were there just to flas people because I dont have my high beams on my HIDs...

The Neon is sweet man. Do you think it'll take your Cat/Omega?

No that thing has no chance... its only got 120hp, on a good day,

In a straight line the Cat will beat it but in twisty turns, it will spank her and send her home crying.

THat car has Full suspension mods, bushings, springs, shocks, big sway bars, and sticky tires... so its made to turn.
