Trannies are stout, havent heard of any problems with them even at 450+ whp. The axles tend to snap at that power level though.lightspeed240 said:With a little brake-boosting, it looks like the neon would have won all the races. Its hard to beat that initial kick of a big-cube V8.
What the record power and 1/4 mile et/mph for a stock motor neon? Thats pretty impressive for a stock 2.4 liter. How strong are the trannies?
Very cool ride. Good luck!silverscooby said:Trannies are stout, havent heard of any problems with them even at 450+ whp. The axles tend to snap at that power level though.
I have since gone to DSS Stage 5 axles and actually converted my car over to a Darrell Cox 3 speed (with a lockup converter) automatic. Has a 3600 stall. Weight reduction, cage, slicks and skinnies. Going for 10's on the stock unopened motor with no juice.
