the menace is a top notch car. just be prepared for some breaks. im not saying they break easy it's just that if your not familier with the field the menace will find all the bumps. and with it being such a quick car they can cartwheel. but other than that there very versitile, they'll go on most surfaces. it's better than the fusion  i think anyway

Its supposed to be 1.9 seconds. Seems like a bit of stretch but here is the link where I got that.
