Infra-Red SVT TORQUE my friend it's what makes the car leave. Our little SVTs don't have a whole lot of torque. The gearing doesn't help either. It's got nothing to do because it's a 4 banger or a 2.0L.

svtpete the reason our cars do not do as good compared to other imports is simply because of first gear.Our first gear is super tall. Its hits almost 40. In an rsx or gsr first only hits 25. That enables them to get better sixty foot times. The first 60 ft of the quarter mile are everything. Our first gear is super tall because thats what you would want on a roadcourse or auto cross. Just my .02

svt medic Why is the svtf not a 1/4 mile car.......Lets start with the painfully obviouse, ITS A FREAKING 4 BANGER. Front drive painfully slow and ,OH its not forced induction. you want 1/4 mile car, then get the mustang cobra 04, or wait for the 06 cobra. Being an svt owner you get first dibbs on the incoming 06 's. Come see thru my eyes my svtf brothers and sisters. The car is a 20,000 dollar or so. The neon is 23 or so ,the mustang gt is 25 or so ,and the cobra starts at 32 or so coupe. or 40 convertable. coupe is faster because of weight. I bought mine because it's an extremly affordable car. at least for me. It is not and never will be fast, however it is quick. And think, it has as much displacment as a 2 litre of coke, thats the major thing.

Muzzy I don't understand why anyone would want to make an SVT-F a drag car, that takes most of the fun out of owning one. If you want a cheap drag car, get an AWD DSM, or an old fox body Mustang.

AFIRM GOOD BUDDY, I GOT THE NEW FIVE SPOKE ONES WITH WINTER TIRES. WORKS WONDERS IN SNOW, Unfortunatly i got this wheel/tire package after i slid and rearened some guy with a big ass trailer hitch. 2 months later i got my car back. For all of you out there who drive trucks: take off your huge ass trailer hitch that sticks out like 4 feet, my headers didn't enjoy the contact with your 2 inch ball. LOL. everythime i see one now i cringe.
