OK guys. I have been reading this board for weeks as I wait for my Black SRT4. I currently own your basic 132hp 2000 Neon. As soon as I heard about the SRT4 I knew I wanted it. I've never raced, never modded anything, but I want this car. Having never raced I would like an experienced racer to describe the best way to launch this car. Any experts out there who can help a complete newbie? 8)

no experience necessary

dude, theres only one way to lauch this car, but YOU will learn how by driving it, pretty simple actually

1. you dont want TOO much wheelspin , even though for a great launch you will have some, just play with it, let out the clutch slow and figure it out on your own........ its more than half the fun to learn it yourelf


2. never just drop the clutch let it out fast but no dumping thats rookie driver skills you do not want to duplicate

SRTdriven, thanks. I'll probably go through a clutch just learning how to launch the car. I will say I have gotten pretty good at it with my 2000 Neon, but I doubt that will help me with this car.

CJ, here is a good page to look at for information on FWD launches, it isnt exactly for a SRT-4 but its pretty much for it's big brother the 1G FWD eclipses, talons, and lasers. Hope it helps.

like the 2000 neon and all 2nd gens stock 1800-2000rpm is all you need to get out of the hole while modulating the clutrch to ensure no wheel spin.
