you should be ok with the 04

I know magazine racing pisses some people off, but the best I've seen for the SVT is 15.8. I think it was Motor Trend. The car isn't a straight line beast, but hopefully that is not why your girlfriend is buying the car. The SVT has amazing handling though, and great brakes. That alone makes up for the slower straight line speed. Any stock car that can pull .90G's on the skidpad for $21,000 is okay in my book.

i ran a best time of 17.1 with o horrible launch here in pueblo, co. i plan on taking to a track in texas next time i go home to see the difference. i will be running up here again next month with the new intake to see the difference here. also have a steeda short, so i'm not sure how much that will help. just curious if i read right....does it help to pull the fuse on the traction control? and if so, is it easy to find? i am lazy, i know......

ask Euro about that CO air, not good for focus times, when you come down here you should go to Redline some time in Caddo Mills

nah, she's not looking for a straight line beast (shes got a 72 Camaro w/ a 361 smallblock for that) . She just wants something thats fun to drive. She owned an Escape and after she drove my car a few times she started falling in love with the feel and handling of hatchbacks. So she started looking at the SVT since she works for Ford and can use her Escape as a trade in. Just trying to get some more facts on the car so I can convince her its a good choice.
