Now that's some crazy stuff-could you imagine lining up, looking over and seeing the guy that rented you the Neon and whats worse is blowing him away.

haha, thats great. i cant believe they more than doubled the stock HP by doing that, and running 13's. Just imagine if you did that to the new Neon SRT-4

I can imagine what would happen if that was done to a Neon SR4...

Turbo + 150+ shot nitrous = KABOOM!!

And more than just a backfire through the airbox.

why not?? I am a very bad culprit in the abusing rental car catagory, but I am sure I am not alone...

there is a reason why rental companies use new fleet car.....WARRANTY

rental costs are so high that I am sure the handful of people like myself who abuse them is outweighed by the good renters and the ridiculously high profit margin is retained

i did that with a 91 taurus wagon 3.8 rental vehicle that actually belonged do my roommate. during the week he had it we did burnouts (well as best we could), i did a reverse-drive bomb a few times and we attempted some e brake turns. on the last day i did 4 or 5 neutral-redline-drive bombs. surprise surprise the transmission gave out as we limped it back to the rental place. fun times.

That's what one of my friends got when his parents' Stratus R/T went in. We did quite a few N drops. Also drove it through a cornfield....ahhh the joys of driving a car that belongs to nobody you care about.
