Dude, I really hope you didn't take that seriously.


Oh crap, not anymore.
I thought you were making a straight line power comparison to the AT.
I have to stop reading these threads so fast.

How did that list of muscle cars compare in the quarter mile?
I bet it would be a good race - stock SRT-4 vs. one of them.
They're just hella noisier!!

too much flaming. boooooo!

i do maintain the mentality that everyone's entitled to their opinion.
the SRT4 is the fastest car under 20K.
stock 15lbs of boost, and it's really easy to turn up.

despite the fact that it's a "neon", the bumper is quite nice (IMO)
maybe you'll even fool some ricers.
i know my "turbo celica" does.
that's all it is to most.
they have no idea there's a "AWD turbo celica"

and maybe comparing some driving characteristics between the two will be like apples/oranges. they just weren't DESiGNED for such things.

yes, i am quite fond of the SRT4. wouldn't mind having one at all.
but wait! before you hate me...AWD still reigns supreme.

this should be a thread all on it's own. how many times have people come up to you and been blown away by a turbo AWD celica?

This thread, most likely needs to be in o/t, alltrac owners should not bite alltrac owners.

We have kept this forum peaceful for many years. We are a small community, there are not enough of us for us to raise a hand against thy bretherin. Us alltrac brothers got to stay together.

neon:SRT4
many people don't realize there's a turbo neon.

Yeah there was a thread. It got to be pretty long too.

The topic was about stupid things that were said or asked about your alltrac. There were some really good ones

I girl from Toronto I know, Dana Young, has a new 05 blue SRT4. We had a FWD Mopar drag day at St Thomas last August, and I was staged next to her. I couldn't believe how fast her car went, bone stock, on street tires, 2 weeks old.

My 13.12 @ 105 MPH, to her 13.70 @ 102 MPH....pretty fast for a stock, under warranty 4 banger with AC!

After the launch, when I got the jump on her, she remained less than a car length behing the entire length of the track-she was so close I could see her in my peripheral vision when I looked up at the EGT's.

that's about right, for an SRT4. my friend layed down some low-mid 14's here, and in hawaii, the times are consistantly about half a second slower than the maindland. i suppose i'd blame it on track condition. low funds. tracks closed now, too. lame. just after i bought my car. haha.

unless you're on the street. :evil: but yeah, there was only one officially (hawaii raceway park) and that closed down because their lease was up (for the 4th time or something like that)...there've been lots of people looking to get it up and running again, though. *crosses fingers emoticon).

That's terrible. After street racing incidents double, I'm sure the local government will lend a hand.
