Funny story (laugh if you agree)
Today a Buddy of mine was given a 2011 Ford F-150 and was taking me for a spin in it. Him and I used to race around a bit when we had other vehicles and we thought it would be fun to see what my 07 compass W CVT could do against his new truck. Oddly enough he had a 2010 mazda 6 sport and with a 40 roll my compass actually beat the mazda (not by much at all but a wins a win) now on to the F-150.... Highway 40 roll: I had a very LITTLE lead from the roll and it seemed like quite a close race, till I hit about 65... he started pulling away quite a bit. Okay so a truck thats pushing 300+ hp beat my 172hp compass. but I was very amazed on how close the race was. Could it be that the CVT in the compass has the upper hand at highway speeds versus vehicles that have more power and WAY better 0-60's? 0-60 of the mazda 6 sport = 7.5 sec. 0-60 of my compass = around 10 seconds. 0-60 of the F-150 = 6.5 sec. now the real question... would intake, exhaust, and plugs give the compass the potential to give these Rigs a good run for their money??
