2004SVTAutoXer not only are you wrong on every point you've made except 1st gear being tall, but they've already been discussed and disproven had you bothered to read any of the 7 pages before posting. since you're new here i'll give you the benefit of the doubt, but in the future please read prior to posting. and for new ideas that come up, do a forum search prior to posting.

SilverZXIII A modded N/A Zetec has a very good chance against a stock SVT.

First of all the SVT is heavier by a few hundred pounds.
Then theres the gears. 1st and 2nd gear are very tall while 3rd and 4th are very short. If you can get a big enough lead from the launch through 1st-2nd gear theres a good chance he won't catch back up.

The normal zetec and the SVT zetec have their strengths. The normal zetec is good for short from a dig races as the low end torque gets it going rather quickly, while the svt zetec is better for a top end race.

understandable...wonder how well the car would perform mounted to a built MTX-75.

03OrangeSVT Once you get out of 1st the car stays in the "powerband" quite well

Spec3VR6 not necessarily. 1st gear is taller...but if theres more power to get there, it doesnt matter. Less time taken up shifting. Once the SVT is in its power band, when shifting at full throttle, the gears dont seem that long at all.

kenpokid arnt the gears really tall on the SVT? so it would take longer anyway to get up to redline...

the SVT 7200-7600 redline would over-rule any transmission deficiencies
