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.340duster said: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.
interesting...the one I ran, i had the jump, but by about 60 or so, he had me beatSPOOK R/T said:I have owned 2 - 98 Neon R/T's Not really last year at the DI Meet.

you also have a 3.5.Avenger said: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
look....I TESTED IT. I HAVE RACED NEON R/Ts in my 3.2. A 3.2 doesnt even hold up next to an Neon SXT with a manual. You need to learn that Intrepids ARE NOT the fastest cars on the face of the earth. My friend's SXT trashed the Intrepid, not even close...we both gteched the cars during the run, his 0-60 was 7.79, mine was 8.16. Thats just an SXT with 132 hp...the R/T has 150 and usually puts about 132 to the wheels. You need to realize that Intrepids dont beat everything.Avenger said:I seriously doubt that........we're talking V6 vs 4-cyl......the 6 has WAY more ooomph at top end when air resistance is beating that 4-cyl down.
On a side note......I test drove a 2001 Neon R/T when car shopping for my Intrepid R/T.......I was pretty dissappointed at the performance when comparing it to the Intrepid I eventually ended up buying.
