I thought this car was amazing, but it has a ton of turbo lag. It handles like charm in the twisties, but in a straight line, it falls on its face at the top end. I have been seen Cobra, STi, Camaro SS, and even lowly SRT-4 models that are faster. Don't get me wrong this car is awesome for what it made for---rally; it turns like it's on rails.
Upgrade the turbo to a fast-spoolin one. I think that the one it has now, is too big.
