My wife has an 05 stratus with the dohc 2.7 v-6, redlines around 7000 I know that for sure. Don't know much bout the 4 banger other than its got a huge gawdy mess of plastic for an intake. Always have been told the 4 banger is a turd tho. The 2.7 v-6 is a beast of a motor for as small as it is. It's as fun to drive as a s/c gtp imho. Which motor ?

they are not as strong as people want to think....when people say mopar mini,i assume they mean k car?but the best mopar compacts in my area are late 80s to 90s intrepids,concordes,300m....these are the cars i tend to say are the hard mopar minis.and they are large wheelbase if i remember.
but on topic,i would build it as hard as possible...i just dont see it taking the hits like a w body or equally good starting platform would,if they had the same work.not saying its junk,just saying with the same amount of balls deep building,it might open up a can of shit.that say a w body or something wouldnt.
I bought this 2004 dodge stratus 2.4 auto as my first derby car for $200. the guy before me said he got first in his derby out of 20 cars it was pre ran one time and this was how i bought it ruining and driving welded and all thread thru front and rear.
I then had to cut all the welds and take the all thread out so that i could run a local chain and go derby no bumper swaps allowed other than other fwd unibody bumpers
Had a lot of fun my first run but did not do that great cause the track was very muddy and i overheated then i put new radiator and bumper on the next night and got first
over all i would run another one but try out looping radiator lines because it seemed that i lost the radiator almost right away each time and it liked to over heat pretty fast i also would use the rear more because it was very hard and didn't move very much
