3.94 trans. w .81 5th gear------Sport also has 3.94's
Dohc motor----nothing special, like 45% of prodution neons came with a dohc
quick ratio steering rack---check
stiffer springs----check
Seats-----check
Leather steering wheel/shift knob---cool until they wear out and look like shit?
ECU has higher speed limiter-----wtf? who cares....lol
4 wheel disc brakes w ABS-----cool
Rear sway bar stock-----cool
Functional wing stock----functional? lol, stock surf boards came on Sports and Expresso's to I believe
Many more creature comforts----not really, any sport model basically has everything you mentioned.

I could keep going, but my point is valid. Not trying to ruin mahifish's thread just stating the obvious that is looked over so much.
The part your missing is this. I'd like to have an r/t, but its not a big deal. R/T's are nothing special in the neon world anymore and havent been in a while. They are getting harder to come by for sure, but most of us have neons b/c we either cant afford a nicer car right now or they are our little w/e racers cuz they are fun as hell. An r/t doesnt make either of those purposes any better.


Oh and btw, A Neon Is A Neon.

It is obvious that the people that argue this are mad because they dont have an R/T or acr.
Maybe some people need to read up on there neons.

The first generation Neon was introduced in January 1994 and manufactured until 1999. It was available as a four-door sedan or two-door coupe. It was powered by either a 132 hp (98 kW) @ 6000 rpm and 129 ft (39 m)·lbf (175 N•m) @ 5000 rpm SAE 2.0 L SOHC or a 150 hp (112 kW) @ 6500 rpm (R/T DOHC model) and 133 ft·lbf (180 N•m) @ 5600 rpm SAE 2.0 L DOHC four-cylinder engine. The first generation Neon was available with a three-speed automatic transmission or a five-speed manual transmission and was sold as a Dodge and Plymouth in the United States and Canada, and as the Chrysler Neon outside of the United States.

The Neon had more standard power when compared to competitor cars of similar vintage - the Civic DX at 102 hp (76 kW), the Civic EX at 125 hp (93 kW), the Sentra at 115hp, the Escort ZX2 at 130 hp (97 kW), the Corolla at 115 hp (86 kW), etc.

At the Neon's release, then chairman of Chrysler Corporation Robert Lutz said, "There's an old saying in Detroit: 'Good, fast, or cheap. Pick any two.' We refuse to accept that."

First-generation Neons were competitive in SCCA Solo autocross.[1] Available with both the SOHC (sedan) or DOHC (coupe) the ACR was competitive in its class, and featured four-wheel disc brakes, Arvin non-adjustable struts for 1995–1996 models and Koni adjustable dampers for 1997–1999 models, thicker anti-sway bars, fast-ratio steering, heavy-duty front wheel hubs, and a five-speed manual transmission with a numerically higher .81 fifth gear and final drive ratio of 3.94 for quicker acceleration. 1995 through 1997 models featured adjustable camber. The computer-controlled speed limiter was removed from 1995 ACR models, and raised from the standard 190 km/h (118 mph) to 210 km/h (130 mph) for subsequent years. The ACR offers no badging to distinguish it from other Neon models; the only visible differences are a bumper with fog light holes, but no fog lights and a lack of side mouldings. In 1995, the ACR was only offered to SCCA members, but in subsequent years it was available to the general public. The name "ACR" was initially the internal ordering code for the "Competition Package", as it was termed in dealer materials; however, as knowledge of the model spread, the ACR name stuck, and backronyms such as "American Club Racer" were given to it by fans.[who?]

The R/T model (Road/Track) debuted in the 1998 model year. Offered only with a 5 speed DOHC configuration, the R/T featured many of the ACR's mechanical upgrades including the numerically higher ratio 3.94 5 speed manual transmission, with the .81 5th gear. The R/T, however, was intended for the street, with more comfort and convenience features standard or available, and specialized parts like the adjustable dampers removed, although the dampers found on R/T models were slightly stiffer, offering an advantage over standard model Neons. R/Ts featured optional stripes over the top of the car, silver "R/T" badging on the front door panels and the right side of the trunk deck lid, and a functional wing. The "Stripe Delete" option was available from the factory, but with no credit to the Neons MSRP. All striped R/Ts (Black,Red,Blue) had silver colored stripes, with the exception of the White R/Ts, which came with dark blue colored stripes.

Who gives a shit about an r/t or acr. There is nothing too special about them. I would like one but I really dont feel like spending $3000 on a neon thats 10 years old. Im happy getting a plane jane neon for $800 and spending the other $2200 I would of spent on the acr or r/t and making it wicked fast and look nice.

This. At this point with neons for us, a better idea is buying a clean $800 sport or base coupe and modding up. R/t's and ACR's go for $3k if people know what they are. Thats over $2k in mods, ie...rims, motor, seats, etc... When they first came out, yea R/t's and ACR's were a huge deal but now they are just another 10 year old neon that cost $2k more. 1gnR/T, your making yourself look dumber with every post. We know our neons, but you realize these arent brand new cars right?

It has alot to do with jealousy it sounds like, and if people are too poor to even spend 2k on an R/T or acr then you dont deserve to be adding mods to your car at all, you should instead be looking to buy a house or find a better job so you can support your hobby. Somebody said that an R/T is 3k? haha, then you are a sucker, when i was looking for a R/T i found like 5 real nice cars just in WI, the best one was a 99 intense blue R/T with all the options sunroof ect. for 3k. BTW I picked up my R/T for $2200 in mint condition with 91k on the odometer, so far ive spent $1500 in mods so that brings the grand total to $3700, thats not that bad considering i would drag most of you up and down the quarter mile and around the auto x, all you have to do is take your time and look for the right car not just jump at the first 800buck beater thats going to drain your wallet because it breaks down all the time.

The definition of a NEON
A great domestic compact car whose rapidly disappearing taillights are most typically seen through the windshields of Honda Civics, Chevy Cavaliers, and other assorted shitboxes.

there is nothing special about the r/t. the only difference is the tranny, the suspension and the stripes. you do know there are 5psd dohc coupes that are not r/t's. like everyone else said I rather buy a $800 neon and fixed it up. 2,200 dollars in mods can go a long way.
