The SVT competes with the SRT 4. The srt4 isn't in a different class because its faster. Its in the same class because it handles like a turd. The RS wouldn't compete with the SRT4, it would be in a different class and it would cost more. I don't think the RS would do very well because it doesn't have redneck appeal (its quarter mile-to-price ratio isn't very good). However I think the Cosworth would do awesome because it would dominate the EVO & STI. The Cos has more power than the EVO & STI so I think it would be a winner.
I'd pay $24,000 for an RS & $33,000 for a Cosworth.
