Those cars are definitely beasts. I'm more of 1/4 mile guy so handling always comes a close second. Don't get me wrong, I love a car that handles great but 1/4 mile racing is what I do the most. I noticed a new Roush Mustang on the road the other day, we had some fun at low speeds so I didn't have a problem keeping up. 50+MPH and he would have had my ass. I hate teh WRX top end.
Edit: I just looked up the new Roush stages. Very similar to the past stages, this dude was most likely Stage 1 or 2 based on me keeping up with him in 3rd. For the price though, this Roush stuff doesn't seem very worth it...
- Stage 1 = $9,000+ for rims, body kit and some other plastic
- Stage 2 = $11,600+ for Stage 1 plus more plastic and suspension
- Stage 3 = $21,000 for 430hp and previous stages
The list goes on, might as well get a GT500 and find a good aftermarket suspension. I know the Roush Mustangs handle good, but those are some pricey packages.
