Actually I think he was praising them for working with what they were given.Northern Rider said:I find it odd that you are choosing to flame the SRT crew specifically and the LX platform in general. You offer no credentials to substantiate your claims.
You say you can out- engineer thes guys? How so? Can you out-engineer the entire Mercedes E-class computerized suspension/steering/brakes system on the platform?
Even the 300C (non-SRT8) is a very competent performance car at speed. This 4 door family sedan (competitor to the Buick Park Avenue) manages to get around road circuits just fine. Case in point:
NR's 300C Devastates Competition at the Track - Almost!
This experience is being repeated over and over again this summer by other drivers. And you can't argue with the results from ONE LAP OF AMERICA.
DCX has never claimed these vehicles to be all-out performance cars (like the Viper). But the results speak for themselves. The 300C SRT8 is simply the best $70,000 car that $45,000.00 will buy you on today's market.
Re-read the comments again and you'll see that the SRT Engineers were able to achieve great results even when saddled with poor sourcing decisions or conflicted requirments.
But, back to my question....anyone (beside LB22) upgraded the springs to reduce the fenderwell gap???
