I'm not a huge fan of Dodge, but the SRT-4's are quick cars, I would love to make the focus that fast. Good luck with your new car.

Its a great car especially for its money and is a speed demon, but after driving the focus I would not touch the SRT with the 10 foot pole due to its poor handling.

well i guess you didn't notice that it runs the slalom at 69+mph and runs a .85-.87 on the skidpad...if this doesn't handle then no focus handles either.
