ReviewI finaly went out and drove the SRT-4 yesterday and was more than pleasantly supprised. Understeer was very minimal with considerable wheelspin on slower corners. But when I expected understeer the car clung to its line and glided exactly where I wanted it. High speed cornering was a little less impresive with the car seeming to wobble around and not want to keep a set but overall balance was excellent for a car in this class. Compared to the nissan spec-V the dodge has much less understeer on slower cornering and accelerated with a punch that the nissan didn't have. However on the high speed corners the SER seemed more set and planted at the limit. all in all I had a smile on my face.
Best Featuresshifter felt great and side support on the seats was excellent. the front of the car looks mean and has the power to back it up. pedal placement is good for heel toe and steering has just the right amount of resistance. and my favorite part- Minimal understeer and almost no torque steer
Worst Featuresstiffer spring ratios would help on the high speed corners. the car did not hold a set well and wobbled around all mushy like on its suspension. If the body was a little more stiffly sprung it might cut down on this. I would also like to see more adjustment on the seat to improve driving position
