Power Ford in Valencia, CA will give you $6K off of the MSRP, but they only have a Black 5-door SVT left. The salesman was a friend, but he said anyone could get the deal.

Yeah the traction control is a bummer, although if I would just turn it off when I start the car it wouldn't bother me 90% of the time. I think a switch in the cockpit to turn both the ABS and TC would be nice.

Get the latest "Racecar Engineering" magazine (with a yellow Jordan F-1 car on the cover) as there is an article on suspension setup for front wheel drive racecars. I will end up with some suspension mods, probably the H&R Cup kit or Eibach kit of some sort.

Come out to Willow Springs when you get the car hooked up, it would be fun to see the SVTF pass the WRX's on the straights! I was passed going into Turn 8 by an STI with 4 people on board!!! Doh!
