Cool love of SVTF

So aside from trash talking svtf, and bitching about our concerns that we know ford does'nt care enough to fix. Simply put, to fix ,is to spend dime one. ford ain't gonna do it. so what does everyone think of their SVTF,My wife has a ZX5 which she loves. I bought my SVTF because I like the way it handles. Its's quick in its stock configuration.. It can be made alot faster, but why, It will already out run most cars in its class. And we all know it will outhandle anything in its price range. its no sluff in the brake tests either.Yeah a srt 4 will beat it in a straight line ,but that car almost hagns with the stang mach 1 in a straight line . take the turbo out and well. the srt-4 will get its ass handed to it By SVTF all freaking day long!!!!POINT IS LETS HEAR THE GOOD IN SVTF> tell me and the rest of the ford fanatics what you love about your perspective rides. It doesn't have to be svt either.Its all about one thing, and if your hobby or love is cars SO BE IT...

Things I love about my SVT:
1) Smoking the living daylights out of Vettes, Camaros, and Mustangs on AutoCross courses.
I've been in 6 races now since I bought the car on March 27th.

2) It keeps running better and better (and keeps getting better mileage to boot) the more miles I put on it.
Sitting at just under 5,000 miles now.

3) Running through 1st, 2nd, and 3rd all the way to red-line getting on the freeway.

4) I just like to look at it, let alone sit in it.

5) This is by far the best (stock) sound system (audiophile 9006) I've ever had in a car.

Here's something from the FAQ.
Go into your USER CP (profile) and EDIT OPTIONS.
At the bottom is a place to upload a custom avatar.
Pick CHANGE AVATAR and it should be self explanatory from there.

OK,
Let's see some more love of the SVTF!

I take Issue with your comment about a SRT-4 smoking a Mach 1 all day. Mach ones a good for low 13's stock. I know my car would show a SRT-4 nothing but tail lights. Now back to why I love the SVTF, its the best handling car you can get with the money, however I feel it is underpowered.

damn good handling stock. Very nice interior styling. Great breaks. Nice sound system. Love the HIDs. The power is a tad less than Id like but it still holds its own.

"Yeah a srt 4 will beat it in a straight line, but that car beats stang mach 1 in a straight line all day"

Not unless its staged up or slightly modded


"take the turbo out and well. the srt-4 will get its ass handed to it By SVTF all freaking day long!!!!"

No it wont, thats already been tried here locally against a modded GS-R. It still pulled slowly. But then again, a turbo motor is built just for that... turbo.

Other than the low torque range, tall first gear and that horrible bog off the line. I love it, I get all excited when I wind her up and let her loose. I shiver with pure pleasure when I hear the intake runners switch over at 5000 rpms..............mmmmmmm yes. I love my SVTF...

BRB...going for a drive....

i like it because of the way it looks. i haven't really had any problems with it besides the quality it was built. nothing 'go-able.' launching from line does suck, but when i hit 2nd, i still get blown away.
