You're name says Kyle so I'm going to say Civic.
Then again, I'm strongly of the opinion that Neon's belong in trailer parks driven by trashy meth head chicks.

99 Civic vs 99 neon
for stock classes

picking up a new car

what are these "stock classes" of which you speak?

seriously, unless you're putting out "FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE" bragging about your latest win in Class X [leaving out the important detail where the only other entry in Class X was a blind man on a 3-legged horse], the only class that matters (for this discussion at least) is "2wd".

based on my reasearch...

--- '99 civic ---
+ "cheap-ish" gearsets from Gear-X, MFactory, even more options if you're willing to spend more
+ "cheap-ish" final drives from Gear-X, MFactory, even more options if you're willing to spend more
+ "cheap-ish" LSDs from MFactory, Kaaz, Gripper
+ every engine swap under the sun has already been done
~ low torque unless you're swapping engines
~ double a-arms should have *enough* travel, but not as strong as struts
- rear suspension is goofy

--- neon ---
+ struts F/R
+ should have more torques?
~ no idea on availablity/cost of gearsets, final drives, LSDs

"cheap-ish" = $1000/gearset, $500/FD, $900/LSD

(measurements aren't going to be exactly the same for a '99, but should give you an idea - http://www.rallyanarchy.com/phorum/read.php?5,76139,76139#msg-76139 )

So does Doug Shepard, Jon Conley, Kris Marciniak, Matt Bradenburg, Lauchlin O'Sullivan and probably a few other drivers I'm forgetting.
Yeah, they make a fine enough rally car. But that doesn't change my opinion of them. It's like the Forester XT. Sure they may be fine cars, but they belong in the hands of 50 year old lesbians. Who cares if it's got STI parts and 450 hp...
