Driving the Neon today to work north bound 169 by hwy 81. I stop at the stop light in the left lane. Stopping next to me is a 1998 Durango with a V-8 the light turns green and he takes off like a big bird. I floor it and he has a 3/4 of a car length on me by 40mph it is 1/4 of a car length and by 60 mph i had a 1/4 of a car length on him. The next light at 89th ave was red so we both stop at the light. I know this time to hit it hard when the light turns green. The light turns and i can hear him spin the tires on the Durango.I floor the little Neon for all she worth by 30 mph i have him by a 1/2 a car length and by 65 mph by a full car length. after that he gave up. Man i was shocked the Neon won it is a 3 speed auto and the only thing i have done to it was 8.5 mm wires and KN drop iin filter and anti foam in the tranny. I thought for sure he would of smoked me. The wifes new Stratus SE is a lot faster than the Neon. I hope the roads are dry this weekend so i can play with it a little, it turned over 1,000 miles today the wife told me. The only time i get to drive it is on the weekends.
