  1. Several questions were asked in a thread that was not in the tech section. This is for Gen 1 Dodge\Plymouth neon, 95 to 99. Re posting that information here to help any team interested in running these cars. They can be great cars for teams on a budget, many ex scca IT cars exist and there was once a class specifically for these cars (Spec Neon). Many of these former race cars exist, most with the desirable parts like the SDK option already on them. They lack the fuel capacity of many of the more popular 80's cars and require a motor swap to be reasonable competitive (or turbo). They have hub\bearing issues that need to be addressed or monitored. The engines require attention to detail and some basic mods to be reliable at higher duty cycle in DOHC form. Unless you are a really good car builder, they will be more difficult to push to the front than a BMW (e30/e36). The cost of operation can be much lower and replacement\repair of the chassis is much easier; I have owned several parts cars with $350 being the most I have paid for a driving parts car. So if you are a new team looking for a cheap car, or have a Neon and are looking for basic advise on how to field one, here you go: If you have more questions on a particular area please chime in. Hopefully some of the other car makes will release similar info to at least get new teams up to mid pack speed.
