What year Neon R/T? 98 -99 are easy mid to high 15 sec stock. The Neon should win. The 2001 on up are low to high 16 sec cars. You have good chance of winning. Driver has alot to do with it also.

the R/T will win...i have tested it. If the Neon driver is anything decent, he'll take you...you'll get the jump off the line, but he will come on strong and pass you.

he'll probably bet me then, but i think i can get a jump off him on the start, he likes to spin the tires off the start

Neons did'nt come with a 2.4, they only came with the 2.0, either 130 HP Stock, or 150 in the Neon R/T's. At least, we never had a Neon come in period with anything bigger than a 2.0 until the SRT-4.

I have owned 2 - 98 Neon R/T's Not really last year at the DI Meet. I beat every one off the line until the 1/8 mile. Then i lost power, a lack off gas because. I was running too little gas in the tank. He should catch him at the end of the 1/4 mile.

I would think that the neon would take you off the line because of better power to weight ratio, but once you got going, the neon not have the extra two cylinders would lose.

Depends on how fast you get to.......the Neon will take you off the line with the 5-speed.......and you should be able to pass him depending on how fast you race to.

My Laser will take my Intrepid off the line every time........but by the time the Laser reaches 120MPH, the Intrepid flies by it like the Laser is standing still ;)
