|Was no Contour SE.
On-road impressions were colored by the Contour's sportier feel. Surprisingly, with its slightly firmer, more-controlled suspension action, the Ford actually feels tighter and more composed on mountain swervery, and the high level of grip provided by its Firestone Firehawk GTA tires makes elevated cornering speeds feel unintimidating. The Stratus, on the other hand, has the demeanor of a conventional modern sedan, which is to say, it's quite good. The ride is comfortable (softer than the Ford's) and the steering, though secure and linear, lacks the Ford's nimble feel. The other main connection to the machinery, the driver's seat, is superior in the Ford camp. The Contour's front buckets are firm and supportive (like the better import seats), while the Stratus' seats are softer and, most notably, lumpier.

I wouldn't count this one. The only thing it shares with the Stratus is the name. That's what's starting to suck about RC racing. The cars no longer share a resemblance to the vehicles they're supposed to emulate.
