DJslurp1200 I ran a best time of 10.62 saturday night out of 3 runs at sunshine speedway in my 05' ST with only a Steeda SRI and a full tank of gas... Ran a 10.92 on the last run with Passenger/Camera man LOL...

That sounds about right for stock cars. Once you mod the ST the "bottom end/top end doesn't matter. It's going to be faster than the SVT. An ST with an intake will pull even or beat an SVT. An ST with intake and exhaust will have no problem beating an SVT. In my D23 PZEV with intake and exhaust i beat bolt on svt focuses several times without issue. The good thing about the ST is that it is NOT expensive to mod. Probably less expensive to mod than the SVT

ehancock I ran my car at the beginning of the season. At the time my performance mods were: cosworth cai, fc tb, cosworth header/flex, borla 2.5" exhaust, 93oct FS tune, and cfm rear dogbone. My clutch slips mega bad so i ran a best of 15.1 @ 95mph. I lost a ton of time due to the clutch slipping. If my clutch wasn't slipping i would have probably been able to hit a mid-high 14.

I have not been to a track before so I can't say anything about any times I'm running but I can say whether you go with EITHER the ST or the SVT you will not be dissapointed because both cars are great and have alot of potential!
The ST yes but the SVT is hopeless in the 1/4 sadly.
