Yeah I agree. It's not like he came on here and said "the Focus sucks ass! I whupped it with my awesome Elantra. Hyundai owns you all!!" I still haven't bothered to look up the weight of the Elantra but if it is light enough, and perhaps combined with the SVT having traction control annoyances, I can see it happening. The SVT isn't that fast, after all.

yeah it could be the t/c cause i allways beat him on the launch then hed wed stay about the same distance apart for the rest of the race, and yes my tires are crap, even though my freind blamed hi half worn stockers for the loss LOL. Ill tell him to launch from 3200 rpms and see what happens. THe only reason i doubt traction control is because he broke loose everytime, he ripped rubber for a good .25-.5 seconds. Again, if anyone wants to race who lives near 818 im down:)

vassili95 you know you could be right, cause its not that hard to get a SVT badge. But you can also get a valve cover with the SVT logo on it also. I dunno makes me wonder if this is the result of a Focus badged and turned into a look a like SVTF. Hmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder, its very possible.

Will an SVT valve cover really fit a ZX3? I thought it wouldent because they have different heads right?

Hmmmm I never thought those cars were that fast. I would think the ZX3 would still out run it. It would be a good race but the ZX3 should come out on top. Let me drive the SVT, then lets race. lol. Sh!t I would race you with my ZX3 if I was close enough
