Don't ever underestimate SVTFs you can beat them but theyre hard to beat. Theyre FAST
 
My ATX has beaten some SVT's here in Puerto Rico. I haven't spanked them. Ive gone neck and neck racing on the highway against one we were neck and neck and then started moving throgh traffick at about 120 MPH at the end I saw an opening between a 4runner and a semi I took it made it but Svt had no choice but to take his foot of the gas to stay in one peace. He told later that day that I won and that I won because of my driving. We raced again on a straighway about 3 times and we stayed neck and neck. I have some good mods while he only had a CAI but in all 3 races we stayed neck and neck. Those things are fast u can beat 1 but it's not gonna be easy to do it. Don't expect to spank one easily either those things unless the driver is crappy.

Those things are fast I know cause I have raced a few and I have also driven a few. Don't ever underestimate SVTFs theyre full of surprises. That does not mean you can't beat 1. I ve beaten a few and I have lost against a few.

THEYRE FAST and also cool.

SVTF's are quick , not fast. And yup sure enough they are cool, hell my EAP is downright fly [:D]

I like SVTs but it all falls down to one problem. One legged man cannot drive stick everyday...especially in DC!

I feel for ya man! But I'm sure that you are enjoying the hell out of your car, am I right?
Ever since I started mountain biking many a year ago I've been hooked on standard trannies out of love for the precise shift on demand.

To the thread starter, I just wanted to say that I appreciate the manner that you presented this topic. Most people tend to describe the SVTF in an overly negative manner by comparison, so Kudo's to you on that [thumb]

quick in a straight line maybe. But fast in the auto crosses! And slap a JRSC or turbo and they will become fast.
