Have a good kill against someone on the street or did you lose horribly, tell us about it here. <B>1GN.org DOES NOT promote street racing!</B>

if you go hitting 150 on the stock T rated tire your gonna kill yourself

BTW i checked the wiring diagram, there is no BRN/BLK wire
If it was possible I would just change my tires and cut the wires..

But I dont think my Neon will start after I cut those wires...

yes stock VR6 is about the same as my Neon. it really depends on the driver if they can keep up, or even pass me.. if the vr6 is stock, and the driver is good, then he will pass me if I shift to 3rd.

if the driver isn't good enough, he won't pass me at all. and yes I tried this many times, LOTS AND LOTS of vr6's here in holland. (cocky young punks that think they own a supercar)

yes they are pretty heavy, I believe the golf 3 VR6 weighs somewhere around 1200/1250 KG. (Neon = 1085 KG)

so that is a pretty big difference. more than 100 KG

that only like 200 and some pounds difference. drop those 200lbs and you got a decently quick car. same goes for the neon too

if you drop another 200 pounds for the Neon, the Neon is faster again :)
