I hope that this new ST has a forged crank and additional oil squirters like the SVT has.
That is a good point I forgot to add. It seems that with Team RS, and SVT working this thing, you would think internals would be one of the primary missions.
Truthfully, the only person I really trust to work on my cars is me. I know when I do something right and I know when I do something wrong...
