SVT could be a good drag car if it had enough power to get off the line in first. Often times I find myself flooring it at stoplights while letting the clutch out and STILL having a hard time getting power to make it past 2000 RPMs. It's just not geared right in first gear. With a closer ratio gearbox I'm sure you could break 14's..think about power to weight..2700 pounds and 170+ horsepower? That should be powerful enough to get you in the 14's...but it's not. I blame the GETRAG!
this is bob. bob has bitch tits.
