LOL!...different people have different likings for different cars! Not all people like just muscle cars. Neons were the pocket rocket back then! Anyways, I don't think they make that body.

I don't really prefer muscle bodies, they just look too old school...although they are fast in real life. The reason why people like the so called "ricers" is because if tuned and modded right, you can go way faster than muscle cars. The point of "ricers" is a project, not just stock muscle car bodies that make the owner look "uncreative". Not starting an argument...but just wanted to state that "ricers" are more popular than muscle cars in this era.

lol sorry not to get off topic, but if you really think that then your on crack. maby on a VERY long track or in corners, but off the line in a drag...not a chance in hell. a suped up muscle car will smoke just about anything out there in a straight up drag. nothing can push the same torque.

the reason "ricers" are so popular is because they are inexpensive to buy, and much like R/C, its the modding them that makes it fun. Muscle cars arent very "hop-up" friendly. with a ricer, the owner is able to customize their car in many different areas.

drag...like you said, on long tracks and corners..."ricers" have way better handling than muscle cars. Long tracks, drifting, and other non-drag racing sports already make "ricers" faster than muscles 3:1...and I doubt a muscle car can drift either...

my point is though, is that ricers dont out "speed" muscle cars, but moreover, they out corner so i guess it was just a matter of what you define as "fast" and to tell you the truth im not even sure a ricer would win over long distance either as long as the muscle car was geared right.

its kind of like comparing apples to oranges though, they are two different beasts. personally im not a fan of ricers because you base car is a pile of junk. unless you consider a modded M3 bmw to be a ricer. i guess its open to debate on what is considered in each catagory as well heh.

no to get back on toic, the neon will prolly be a hard body to find if at all. body companies tend to make bodies of what each manufacturer is known for so for dodge is will be the viper.

PS: drifting is not racing and your right, no self respecting muscle car owner would consider drifting their nice car

I really want to try making a body by myself, maybe you can try making the neon. If it works, you could share the secret! Another person started a thread on ther****rming lexan, and he already made molds with sculpey. You can try that if you're really willing to spend the time. You MUST have patience though...or you'll end up with a screwed up body that you will regret forever...

A few years ago, I was looking for the same thing and found a second gen Neon RC body 3D printer program design that another Neon fan created and allowed others to download free although it wasn't an SRT 4, maybe an SE or SXT. I do not remember the site as it was years ago but it wasn't 1/10 scale. It was designed for 1/5 scale large touring RCs, maybe could be scaled down a bit if you know what you are doing with a 3D printer. Another issue is that the program he used to design it didn't allow the design to come out smooth and the plastic body would come out a bit thick and possibly a bit heavy so, it would have required some sanding down to smooth it out before painting. This is as close as I ever found but hey, it was a Neon and it received multiple downloads and generous praise because of that. I am not sure if that is still floating around the Internet but you may get lucky if you search for 3D printer Dodge Neon RC body design. My current RC now is a VIPER TA drift car. I pirated the body from my Blue XQ toy Viper TA and fit it on my Redcat Lightning EPX Drift car. It has Blue halo headlights and working Tail lights and is a blast to drift especially when it gets dark outside.

I know this comment is old now but, these days, muscle cars, even Vipers can drift, it takes the right car setup and the right driver.

Originally in Japan, drifting was done by teenagers escaping the pressures of Japanese teen life as they are expected to work hard all the time at school and at home, it was an underground counter culture that started as an artform and grew to the point that there were uphill and downhill drift races where they'd drift corners and the first to the finish won. some of the best might have been able to get lucky to be discovered for pro Japanese circuit racing but on touring car circuits and they'd have to relearn how to race on that level. However there was no BS point systems for drifts like there is in modern pro U.S. drift circuits as it was just a simple, I win, you loose.

Lilcurtis, I think you had the actual definition of a ricer confused. A ricer is a crazy body modified car that has little to nothing done under the hood to justify it. There are people out there that have done plenty under the hood of their Hondas and can do over 100 MPH on the highway easy. I have rode to work once with one such guy and he did 125 MPH from Belvidere, IL to Elgin, IL without the car breaking a sweat (turbo boosted V Tech '90s Honda Accord with no crazy body work, not much traffic at the time to worry about, and thank God no cops or we wouldn't have made it to work that night ) Those lean more to being a race car than a ricer. However, even though that ride was fun this isn't the path for me, for I am a Dodge guy and I really don't condone speeding on the highways either as the posted speed limit was 65.
