so i was driving along 460 here in blacksburg today and i saw this redline coming up behind me pretty quick....i slow down to about 30 and he gets over in to the left lane and slows down beside me....i figure that the car has to be pretty slow becuase he was scared to make eye contact with me...well anyway at the third beep we take off...but here is the kicker...i went from 3rd gear and he went from second becuase i could hear his tiny ass motor winding...well to make a long story short...i shifted at 4 grand until i was 4 car lengths on him in 5th...not a very stout car...

Hmmmm.....I find it hard to believe that your FIRST kill was a Redline considering the rarity of them and the fact that driving an SRT-4 is gonna get you a lot of challenges.

Yes, we know the SRT-4's are currently faster than us so you're not hurting anyone's feelings.

Hey, I think I found a picture of you on the net.




Yep, that's you alright.

Neon's Suck

Neon's suck bad, You will only kill yourself when your turbo breaks in a year.

Get a life and stick to your neon forums. At least there you can post to the majority female drivers

Hmm...Where to start...ok, tiny ass motor? Yah 2.0L is small but what is 2.4L? Your engine is like 2 beer cans bigger than ours, oh no! Plus in the Redline's looong ass second gear, 30 mph is nothing. Thats about 3000 RPMs. If that driver were any good he shoulda clutched into first. And then lets see here...4000 RPMs on a Srt-4 = 175 horsepower at the wheels according to a dyno on google. And if the Redline were actually racing he would be getting roughly 200 at the WHEELS. Add that to a car that weighs roughly 400 pounds less. I don't see your logic. Either you're lying or you're hallucinating, cuz that wasn't a Redline.

Well first of all I would agree that neon's suck, However we don't drive neon's we drive SRT-4's and I think, I definitely have more than a year on my turbo and besides when I get my T3/T4 turbo it won't much matter. Maybe I'll put my stock turbo on ebay and then you can make some real HP.

Redline86 yeah I think 1badsrt was exaggerating a little but it seems to me that every one here has exaggerated about there so called "kills" and last but not least your cars have no balls, when one of your cars puts down 400+ HP on stock internals then I'll give the RL some respect.

Don't be so quick to mock. The 2.0 EcoTec is perfectly capable of handling 400 HP with its stock internals.

And don't worry, soon there will be some that are doing just that.

It's not because our cars are lame that we can't put down 400 hp, it's because we have no support yet, our engine is brand spankin new in terms of cars. But I could be gay and say that our cars have already put down 1000 hp or so. Damn...I can't find the article in my pile of SportCompact Car magazines but they took a 2.0L Ecotec engine made a bunch of hp and did like 240 in the salt flats or something. I know that doesn't really count but its still the same engine.

Well it's true that our engines have been around since about 1998 in the form of a turbo status in Mexico. Also I believe that our engine powered the roadster that holds the land speed record for a 4 cylinder roadster, as well as the speed record for a 4 cylinder car with out body alterations and it was putting out 950+ HP.

I really don't think that Virginia Tech counts as the west, and I really don't think the trip would be worth my time.

12 psi. Soon to be 18 with a bit of aftermarket help.

Oh, you were being a smart ass weren't you. You sly dog, you. :rolleyes:

Now run back to your SRT-4 forum and boast about shit talking here.
