Our team built this car for ChumpCar and Lucky Dog Racing League events, and used it from 2013-2017. Over that time, we’ve developed it into a great handling, easy to drive racecar. This is a cheap, well prepared way to go road racing or hill climbing – just add an Accusump and new belts! The cost of the engine and cage alone far exceed the asking price of the car.

The Neon is competitive in LDRL’s “B” Class, where we’ve had two 4th place finishes (ORP 2017 and Ridge 2017). The only thing holding it back from competing for wins in the LDRL “B” class or overall wins in ChumpCar is fuel capacity – an upgrade to a 1996+ fuel tank (+1.5 Gal capacity) or a 15 Gal fuel cell would help to cure this problem. It also did a 2.12 on 200TW street tires at the Knox Mountain Hillclimb last May.


The good:

- Fresh Hawk Blue front pads on new rotors
- Easy to drive, fast car with well sorted suspension
- Car runs very cool – we ran a full data logger (not included in sale) and never saw water temps above 190* or Oil temps above 240* even on hot days
- Heavy duty front ACR hubs (2mm thicker than standard)


It should have an Accusump added (oil pan has no baffles and we are reusing the Accusump in our new build, but are including the filter adapter required to install it), and belts are expired, but otherwise it's ready to go racing!
