dont go blaming the SVT's poor track skills on the gearing now. the only thing that holds it back is 1st gear being so tall. this doesnt hurt much if you are spinning anyway. other than that the SVT has close ratio gears which is better for drag than the mtx. LOL at spotting the cop in the back tho

Second, those numbers for the 1/4 mile times are kind of darker than the rest of the numbers on the slip and the MPH on the right lane are unreadable but everything else is. Third, I run all the time at the orlando track were he is from, and that slip is not from Orlando Speed World unless he ran somewhere else. Something sound fisshhhhhyyyyyy... Fourth, I ran a 14.3 @ 98 with a 2.3060ft my last time out, a 1.8 60ft at the speed he claims would have been at least very low 14s if not high 13s.
dude just look at the slip again. there is no way he won, when the losing car had faster times at every point in the track, and not to mention a higher mph thru the traps.

Ya true thats why the focus no matter svt or zx3 kills the hondas and acuras in the first couple gears, having more torque is diffinitly something i like to have....ive read builds on 300 hp s2000's and the tq they produce is still far less than you would think it would be. Im not a hater on honda's or acura's im just saying the power band is completly different.

That's just track security, the boys drive better cars than that. I thought the shifter carts in the background was more interesting.
