My Dodge Neon in Autocross Trim   


Whats been modified

I have begun the move to the STS class of SCCA's Solo II. These rules allow for some modifications.

I have replaced the struts with new KYB GR2's

Which are really direct replacements of the stock strut but they had 78K on them.

A home made CAI that you can check out here

I have replaced the 16mm rear sway bar with a Mopar Performance 22mm.

Falken Azenis tires 205/50 on steel 15" rims.

Moved the Battery to the trunk, this made a bunch of room for a homemade CAI that I have yet to make.

Mopar High Rate springs finally installed and they make quite a difference.

The Prothane bushings have finally made it on to the car (Thankyou Sam!!). They took all of the harshness out of the suspension but it still has a very firm feel to it. Plus all of the wheel shake is GONE!!!!

Mobil 1 synthetic oil.
