2003 Neon SRT-4's didn't have limited slip differentials. The only reason the Z won is that the Neon couldn't get traction off the line, and the Z cheated, oops, I mean sprayed, later.

Why is it unfair? It seems to be a fair advantage to anyone who wishes to use it, same as adding performance exhaust or a turbo. Just another way to get power to the wheels.

You're in a foot race carrying a lead weight. A live bomb would be a lot lighter, and if your opponent had one you will probably lose. Does that make it okay to carry?

Basically I see it as cheating because it's so volatile. The unfairness comes in with the fact that those who are smarter will not (or cannot) use it because they want their car to survive. It's not an equal opportunity mod.

i know quite a few people running nitrouse with no ill affects...granted it's not a slapped on dry setup.....but they gained LOTS of power and don't have ANY problems.

Why would they both need it? In that case whenever two people race they need to compare mods and be sure all are the same. Nitrous is a mod like anything else, turbos are cheating

If it was unfair to have nitrous then unhook the nitrous, then take off the turbo, then race....nitrous is just as available to one person as it is to others. Its just like bolting on a turbo or supercharger. I have raced a stock srt4 first hand! and i will say, a STOCK NA, will pull 1 car length, or more, depending no driver, from a 20mph punch, 40, and 60! I did not race from a dead stop though.
