Re: 2003 SRT DD

nice way to block the rust out haha. Looks like its coming out of that boost clip area on the inside. Unless it is rubbing on that mound of grease over your control arm. Hopefully that wasn't there before you installed the new half shaft

Re: Help me to pick a new car

Looks like the same color as your Neon in your sig. Congrats on the new car. They look nice. I personally would stay away from a VW unless it had a warranty which yours does. Did you end up trading the Civic in? You will always get more money selling a car privately. What year is that? Here is one l...

Re: Midnight_Rider's progress log

Not trying to pry, but why do you stop driving it in October? You are in Indiana, the weather stays pretty good out there in October :?: Is it just routine to stop driving it a certain day? Ever think about buying another used SRT-4 to drive during the poor weather months to hold you over?

Re: Midnight_Rider's progress log

When was the last time you drove your car midnight? Not sure how you can go so long without driving it! Just about 2 weeks here and I miss it already. Having a cover over it in the garage and not going in the garage helps though. So I forget about it.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

Aaaaaand now the car is vibrating during acceleration. Surefire sign of a bad axle. It's minor, but it's noticeable. Maybe these Trakmotive axles aren't so good after all. Fuck. Damn that sucks.

Not much new going on with the Neon. We got about 8 inches of snow on Friday night. I luckily got to drive it a couple times to work prior to the storm since I knew bad weather was coming. Its all cleaned up and under the car cover in the garage with the battery disconnected. Will probably be a whil...

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I edited. I meant front STRUT bar not SWAY bar. Yeah wouldn't fit, same DC one too. I made a thread on srtforums on it a while back.

You plan on dipping your RPF1's another color? Yeah, can't go wrong with the factory silver. Do that boost leak test! :)

Re: 2003 SRT DD

I'm pretty sure it's the FPR. Premium gas only. Aside from the hard start (which is mostly better if I let the pump prime before cranking it over) things seem pretty normal. The bad mileage is probably because my drive is all back roads with lots of stop lights. I highly recommend these Continental...
