Lets see the honesty in here shall we?

How many of you would let a freakin' Dodge Neon punk you out if one pulled up on you? Internet high-horse stampede begin!

I hope that everyone involved in that accident will be O.K.

You're right, I would totally slam into the back of him hard enough total my own car, push him into the median, and flip him over.

I would never get punked like that and let him walk away from it.

Subaru fo life yo! Yolo!

Stap someone to the rocket sled at Holloman air force base and let her rip, bet they would explode.

That last line got me
If i was a closet Streetracer, i would not admit to it on NASIOC. I dont encourage Streetracing, as its not something people should get into. But what i do on my own time, is my own business. as for the last line, i shouldve said if they "feel the need". i dont believe anyone needs to Street Race.

That would be the acceleration Gs killing them, not the velocity.

Unfortunately you are mistaken.

The issue here isn't the ability to "handle" fast cars. It's the ability to think, period.

A Dodge Neon... AHEM I mean Dart... can handle 130 MPH without falling to cheap plastic pieces? THAT'S A SURPRISE! LOL I'd chose an annoying FWD only Honda Civic SI any day over a cheap Neon, I mean Dart SRT. ;D

Not sure why you keep referring to the Neon as a Dart. Other than being in the same place in the Dodge lineup they don't share anything. The Dart is built from a Fiat platform, and doesn't really feel like a cheap car like a Neon. Other than an underpowered engine and a questionable transmission (yes I know the two most important parts) the Dart is a pretty nice car.

Normal for the market they are targeting, looks nice but performance is never what it can be.

Couple months back, a 16 year old that lived a couple towns away from me was given a brand new sti from his parents. Ended up wrapped around a tree on the parkway, killed all 4 of his passengers because he was doing 100+.
