You got some serious weight compared to a Neon, if your really want to compete your going to have spend some money. You may want to visit over at the ptcrew.com they are all about performance. The PT cruiser makes a great cruiser but you will always be at a weight disadvantage when racing other 4 bangers.

Agree. An SRT-4 Neon will whup you, but a non-turbo shouldn't.
