Re: Rental Car: Chrysler Neon - 13.82 Sec Qtr

I love this bit in the first paragraph,

His motor + your nitrous system = no problem. Experience the thrill of nitrous, totally uninhibited. No longer will you feel the urge to back off because you're afraid of scattering YOUR dollars along the side of the road or at the strip. It's like hot fudge sundaes without the guilt. Mopar Action's staff, the same people who brought you the Rental Car Nats and the famous "push-o-war" (nose-to-nose burnouts)


Rental Car Nats

hahahahha, if I were you Mal I wouldnt tell too many people when. Somehow having 50 or 60 people hanging off the fences waiting for your "super" run could be a bit of a put off. One thing I found about drags is that it take 10 or 20 runs to get everything just right. There are many really quick cars out there that run times far slower than what they are capable of because the driver needs to learn how to get it all together.

I found even with the auto it was hard to be consistantly quick. Getting the launch just right and finding the 1st-2nd and 2nd-3rd sweet spots was not as easy as flooring it and away I went. From the first run I did to the best run I did I managed to cut a full second off my times and have been consistantly quicker. Now if I can get the launch perfect I think I'd drop another .5 second. It really is so much harder than it looks.
