I went back through the scca national event archives and it looks like the folks that were running an SVTF back in 03, 04 and 05 were not top drivers, just one time national participants. Without data from top drivers in the SVTF, I think it's hard too say how well the car could do at nationals.

Case in point, the Shelby GT was the car to have in FS this year. It placed both 1st and 18th in FS. The 07 Mustang GT placed 2nd and dead last. The driver certainly makes a difference.

I don't know that the SVTF could ever win GS at nationals, but I think it could be a stronger contender than the results from past years would suggest.
