    My Evo does fine on the drag strip, but the awd and better weight distribution just doesn't compare to rwd with sticky tires.

    Been there, done that.

    Ford never should have gone away from the Terminator style (03/04) Cobra. It was powerful, still fairly light, and had great potential for handling. Now the car is just another product of more power, but more weight.

    STI ftw

    As I said earlier, I miss the S/C Cobra - I drove an '03 one a buddy owned, and it was quite quick and a blast to do donuts in haha

    comparing the mustang and STI is like comparing a knife to a spork.

    In any case - watch this:

    It was never a fair test for the Mustang, the Mustang was doomed from the word go. If I wanted to buy a good drag car with relatively cheap modding, well I wouldn't by a Mustang anyways, but someone would. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who has been noticing the recent trend of the Big 3 to put non-functioning crap on their cars. They're getting to be as bad as your average vinyll happy ricer.

    I honestly think Ford has been worse with it than anyone...lets put a spoiler on a Focus

    Thanks for the link

    I like my 08 much more now that I watched the video... I hope they do a comparison of 07 vs. 08 soon.

    The WRX doesn't need a spoiler anymore than the Focus SVT or Focus RS does.
