Hey Folks,

First time posting here and I wanted to come here and pull support for our beloved cars. I'm a veteran of the SRT forums and own a 04 SRT-4. The reason for coming here is to share a joint relationship with you. I have attached a link in the CobaltSS forums and I would like for you all to take a minute and read this very important information. I think it will really open your eyes. By the way I love the Redline as well. Here's the link:

Maybe we should all sit hand in hand and sing Kumbaya My Lord.
I don't know about that, but Super Steve is being completely reasonable, and he's earned my respect. It's a lot better to follow what he is saying than act like a bunch of immature adolescents.

You can't disrespect a whole group of individuals (and their cars) because there are one or two bad apples in the bunch (you all know who I'm talking about).

Sooooo.....you like having trolls, and ignorant people to argue with? I am kinda tired of it myself. I like the idea that he has presented, however I don't think it will ultimately result in much of anything. Especially with pessimitic individuals such as your self. What's the harm in trying? And if you knew me at all, you would realize it's a huge step. I am the kind of guy that will (and has) put people into ditches and gaurd rails when they cut me off.....An olive branch is still better than nothing.....

Agreed. We should band together. I already suggested we sing Kumbaya. But seriously, most of us I think probably considered the SRT-4 and/or the Focus SVT (I did) so I certainly wouldn't mind input from them.

The best way to deal with the trolls is to not even respond to their posts. They are only looking for a rise, so if you don't even respond they will stop posting. . .

I agree.....But did you really consider the focus???!!!?? I test drove the SRT-4, but every time I see a Focus (with the exception of one) I think Festiva....The one is the one that had a 5.0 and a rear drive installed

The focus svt is the best handling car I have ever driven. I was going to buy it and then install a supercharger. But the price on the redline was better which obviously included the supercharger. I have raced them and we are much faster. I loved the gearing on those too. Top speed in first gear was like 45. When merging on the freeway I downshifted to like second. So I did consider it. I like small cars, and the redline is too long for me.

I agree about the length (I wish we were closer to the eclipse) but I just can't get over the whole Festiva thing, sorry.....Are they really that nice in shifting and acceleration?

Good responses guys. Glad to see you guys are viewing my efforts in a good way. I just couldn't stand it any longer. The first stand is my objectives was to bring us together before it gets to far out of hand.

Now as I stated before, we really should bash on anyboby, but to merely remain competitive and respectfull. I'm all about the other guys car, but if he is a complete nimrod, then I just depart my own way...

So let the modding begin and the victories of our achievements prevail. Get some Redline folks...

They do the quarter mile in low 15s stock. The shifter I thought was pretty good. I guess I just thought the ratios were kind of fun--going like 45 in 1st gear is cool. The handling is what sets the focus svt apart from everything.
