Have a video that you threw together of your Neon? Post them here. Videos not Neon related should be placed in the Off-Topic Media board.

Yeah I remember that video from a long time ago. If the viper is stock it has 450 hp (since it looks like a first generation gts). You can put over 450 hp in a neon for a lot less than $75,000! :D

Power to weight ratio FTW!
The same reason GM would not put a real engine in the Opel GT.
Only 215 hp (crank) needed to spank any 'vette they currently had at the time. Didn't want ppl buying a cheaper car that went faster. The GT prolly already outhandled the Corvette anyways.

Probably shouldn't listen to anything your penis says, that guy's a dick.
Patience, of course, is a very powerful weapon, but sometimes I start to regret that it is not a firearm.
Too much time spent here is a sign of a bad case of Ownaneonvirus.

I think you're too drunk. If you look closely, you see that the neon ran an 11 something.

Still cool to see a neon smoke a viper.

Yep, that was Len in the Hahn car. Beating a viper isn't all that impressive anymore. On my old setup, I would have beat one from a roll.
