im talkin a stock for stock race. not your highly modified focus against a stock jeep. someone go test drive one and auto-x it. and dont slack off on it give it all its got and get some lap times. then do the same with a stock svtf. id love to know the outcome.
its funny you assume. because i have driven an SRT8. i know a few guys in socal that have them. they handle awesome for an SUV! but it is just that. an SUV. its hard to compare and SUV with an SVT. no matter how upgraded the brakes and suspension are.
the porsche is completely different story. that has an amazing suspension that is unrivaled by anything that any SUV maker has ever done. its quite a work of modern machinery.
next time before you assume take you head out of your ass first and think about who youre talking to. thanks.
