I wasn't aware that anyone on NASIOC has driven the FXT with it's 250hp/255lb-ft powerplant. That's the same hp as the ST (less 15lb-ft) and they both weigh approximately the same... ~3200lbs. As I said, tune, tires, and the new FXT will leave a lot of the ST fanboys going
in a straight line. Only the FXT doesn't have a 20s timer on its power/torque output like the ST.
By the way, how would the STs numbers look if it had skinny 215s instead of 235s?
From what I hear, the reviews of the CVT "gear box" are great.
