    SRT-4's, whay the hate and why the love? No between?

    ok so I test drove an SRT-4 and WOW. It's a fast as hell car. The seats were little to less to be appreciate and the handling was very good (but not as good as my friends C6 ) Anyways, so why's there the hate and love but no in between for SRT-4s?

    And whats this thing about their clutches failing alot? Would a new after market clutch relieve this problem? What other problems can occur witht eh SRT-4?

    and yes i might actually consider in buying one

    Any way you slice the cake...its still a neon. Usually its the drivers talking **** to everyone (that gets them a bad rep) because they think they have the fastest d@mn car in the world.

    Hrmm, I've seen better body lines on a Yugo.


    or, if you didn't catch that:

    The SRT-4 looks like sh*t.

    It's the Neon thing. A lot of people dump on em cuz it's a neon, then they drive one. That is when it goes from hate to love. Unless they are just going to be haters no matter what. They are great cars for the money.
    As far as the clutch thing,that is not true. I am very involved in the srt community & the SRT clutches are tough as nails. The ones that slip are for 2 reasons: 16 year old driver trying to do 5krmp launches or the car is pushing over 350whp. I have over 70k miles on my srt & have been over 350whp for 20k miles. The clutch held until 68k miles. It is just now starting to slip & only when I am launching. Not during regular driving.
    The SRT is a great car. Yes, there are nicer cars, but you can't get anything else even close for that kind of money. If you have any questions on the car & want to get the right answers, just PM me.

    if your going to have that much power, it probably shouldn't be in a front wheel drive car... my honda could keep up with srt-4's and wasn't a neon so i'd just assume go with something like that.

    srt4 owners seem to be cocky as hell which just makes them more fun to beat because they always have an excuse.

    im not going to say their a bad car, ill just say there are better alternatives. with that said i might consider buying one if it was RWD

    You must have one bad *** honda. Nice!
    Also, every car group is cocky as hell unless it's your car group. That is what I have learned owning several different cars. It's all relative.

    Yeah there are quite a few srt-4 guys that cant shutup about how their car is soooooo much better than anything else. I've had 2 try to race me in my lowly 120hp Lancer. 1 in the middle of the day.

    It really isn't a bad car at all and there aren't any significantly better alternatives NEW in that price range. That is why they are popular. That said, I'd take any year Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX over that thing any day of the week.

    Yes a civic most likely but easily could be something crazy like an EF with K20 swap.

    youve got a good point... most the people around here i see with them are 16-19 and their parents bought them... just annoying


    as to my car 96 2door accord
    No interior, no spare.
    EuroR Intake Manifold
    Golden Eagle Sleves
    Mandrel Bent KTeller Exhaust 3in"
    Magnaflow ES Oval Style Muffler 2.5"
    Peakboost kit (towards the very end of its life)
    with the Peakboost kit i was pushing out around 320 whp.

    my friend did most the work for me (walked me through some of it to). The tranny blew out (syncros) and someone hit me so i got it fixed and my parents are currenly working on selling it (im paying them 10% of whatever they sell it for as a result) while im about 4 hours away. still needs some body work, but its their problem now.
