Moving to Kansas City

Post by GT Neon » Wed Jul 27, 2011 9:23 pm

I will be moving to Kansas City in September and I will be leaving all of my car buddies behind so I will be looking to meet new ones. Anyone in Kansas City hang around these boards anymore?

Cool. Sounds like some fun regardless of what kinds of cars are there. I will keep everyone posted on the move.

Update: I drove out there this past Tuesday and found an apartment in Independence. I am looking forward to starting the new job. How far is Omaha from KC?

We have a pretty good group of SRT's that meet up once in a while in the KCM0 area. Great group of friendly guys.

I would be interested to hang out with the local Neon crowd even if I am missing a turbo.

Not quite sure what would be achieve with me doing a dyno run on a stock 2.0L engine that is in need of a rebuild or replacement with a 2.4L engine. So I will pass on the run unless those in attendance really are desperate to see just how little horsepower a 114,000 mile 2.0L makes.

I hear yah man. I was thinking about bringing the R/T out and seeing what it put down for the hell of it. But I would rather spend my $35 else where on that.

I switched to e85 with the SRT-4 and I am VERY curious to see what it puts down with it.

Glad you could make it Dave, aka GT-Neon! I saw those WOT pulls you did outside, sounded good!

Thanks for inviting me. I enjoyed hanging out and talking cars with everyone even though I was remenescing about my old Turbo car...man I miss that thing.

Yeah but it is still mostly stock. Once I replace the motor with the 2.4L then I will have something worth talking about.

Keep me in the loop when the new local SRT website goes online. I would like to join so I can stay in the know about upcoming events. Who knows I might even plan some events in the future since my current endevor with my work car club has essentially fizzled out due to lack of interest from the members. My friend with the CTS-V is the only one that hangs around anymore.

Since my car has been dead for around 10 months I haven't really tried to meet up with fellow Neon owners. I started a facebook page months ago and it seems like some SRT-4 guys are starting to pop up.

Search for "KC SRT-4" on facebook. Send a request. Let me know you are from 2gn.org.

Edit: The page is primarily SRT-4 gus, but if you have a SXT/SE or whatever feel free to join. Must live somewhat close to the KC area too.
