You have heard correctly. And from what I hear, those transmissions have trouble getting alot of that power from the engine to the wheels.

They weren't able t launch the SVT right either so that makes sense...

Damn this is an old thread and it's been discussed before, I know I posted in those threads too. Yes I have raced a Tibby GT with a Jet chip, exhaust, and Injen CAI. Dusted him fairly well and we ran multiple times as it was a fellow that I worked for that had it. He was pissed but so goes life.

Anywho, I still think that the GT is an awesome performance bargain with an incredible amount of potential. I really do think I would have no problem with purchasing one. Of course I did spend the past year in Korea with the Tuscani's (same thing pretty much) and the stuff that they have for the cars aftermarket like turbos, body kits, etc. is mind blowing and I am envious to some degree. I have to admit that the single most outstanding car that I have ever seen with a body kit was a Tuscani with an insane black & red theme going on. Didn't have a camera that day but if I did you would all know exactly what I mean. There is also the video on the "internets" that clearly displays the power potential of the car in the form of an S/C Tibby pulling like a freight train on a tuned SRT-4

Tibby GT....that car is hella cool with me
