    anyone raced a Dodge Neon SRT-4 ?

    A guy I work with has a Dodge Neon SRT-4. I pulled up beside him on the interstate and tried to get him to race but he would not bite. Another guy at work swears that the guys Dodge will beat my stock 01 SS, a4. I am not sure what year his is but read some reviews and they say they will run around 99-101 mph in the quarter and limited @ 153 top end. Anybody raced one or have some input ???

    I have a client/friend who owns a Dodge dealership. And yes, I've dealt with those SRT-4s and with the SRT-8s and with the SRT-10 trucks. The SRT-4s are a joke. Way, way slower than me...a serious laugher after all the hype of telling me it would eat me up, etc. The SRT-8s are better, but still slower than my SS. And the SRT-10s did not even put up as much fight as the SRT-8s.

    Those srt-4's are very quick, dont have top end though. Several of my buddies had those and I raced them. We were nose to nose until I hit 3rd gear. For a 4 door 4 cylinder front wheel drive turbo car, that thing kicked some ass. Dont under estimate those things, especially if they are tricked out

    Stock for stock you should win if you can drive. They trap anywhere from 99-103mph.

    Stock they are comparable to an LT1, slightly faster from a roll. What kills their times is the FWD.

    Watch out though, they are VERY easy to mod and respond to mods as well as a Supra. Which is why I bought one

    You can get 260-300whp with bolt-ons (WGA, return-line, tune, etc). That's in a 2900lb car. You do the math

    Pg2 has the quick facts, pg1 if you want to read a short summary of their road test:

    srt-4's can be very quick, just listen to the car, it is easy to tell if they are modded, they sounded pretty vicious. Becareful with them, because they can be very destructive. Still i win though.......so far. I know of a few srt-4's out here that can spank me.

    I have a stock 1999 SS and a buddy of mine has a SRT-4 and he has a fair amount of work done to it, including a 50 trim turbo (whatever that means). In the quarter I generally beat him by a car or two but then he added this turbo and I beat him even worse due to the lag of a larger turbo. From a roll he can hang with me but still doesn't compare to my Camaro.

    if his car is stock there is no way he beats you! i raced one when my z28 was stock and it was my buddies and his srt was completely stock and hes a pretty good driver...by 50mph i started pulling away and it just got worse...but be careful a worked srt4 can be a serious sleeper

    I raced a stage one that my buddy owns. Not sure how much more hp that is over stock mabye 15-20 would be my guess. All I had at the time was a lid and catback. From a 60 roll I eat him alive he got the jump since I was in 3rd and did't downshift to 2nd by the top of 3rd I was flying by him like he was standing still. I could only imagine what I would have done to him if I started in 2nd.

    He talked alot and I mean alot of smack before we raced always leaving little signs around work srt4>ls1 and stupid shit like that. I was very humble and did talk much smack just let the car do all the talking which it did plenty of that. He did't say to much afterwards other than admiting to getting beat pretty good. I did't rub it in to hard since other than he drives a srt-4 he's a pretty cool guy.
