Bragging "wrights"

Stomped on GTP super charged!
For a 3.8L super charged engine I'm glad I got my SVT. This was the car I was going to get until I drove my SVTF. Actually it was a close race until the first turn. Then it seemed as if he put it in park. Man this car can rip through turns! My buddy made the excuse of his foot slipped off the pedal. I told him "what on to the brake". I almost felt bad for him until I rememberd the last six months of him bragging that his car was so much better than mine.

I would like to see more bragging "wrights" for the SVTF if any are out there.
Thanks, and lets get the rice off the street...

You were really cross shopping. The GTP doesn't hold a candle to the SVT. The SVT is ready for the race track and the GTP is ready for the highway. They're quick as hell for family cars.

Indeed I put a lot of research into what I was buying for the reason that Honda, Accura , Mits, Pont, GM based vehichles have so many upgrades readily asseceable.I owned a SVT Contour Before my SVTF. There where almost no upgrades available for the Contour and when the timing chain tensioner failed and bent all my valves I got a bit pissed with ford in general cause they refused to even look at the car to begin repaires. So buying anything but a ford was at the top of my list.But the I-4 can be rebuilt easely with out ford or svt needing there dick beaters all over my car.
