  • An SUV that looks like a buggy, but handles like a monster truck.
  • Contrary to its stats, the Sabretooth seems to have an insane grip & mass that defies gravity & physics, making it ideal for off-roading & mountain-climbing.
  • It seems to treat any surface type the same, so there is very little change in its acceleration & handling when transitioning between asphalt, dirt roads or any off-road terrain. This means it's very forgiving in mixed-terrain racing, and is the ideal snow vehicle as it won't spin its wheels while trying to get going or skid all over the place while turning.
  • It can climb 60-degree slopes as if they were nothing, and slopes of a greater magnitude are easily traversed if enough momentum is gained before hand. This also makes cliff-racing a tad more forgiveable as you can literally slide off the cliff road a bit and drive with one side on the edge and the other side off as you regain your footing on the road without completely sliding off the cliff.
  • Its heavier-than-seeming mass also makes it hug terrain like a monster truck, preferring to roll over hills and maintain its momentum instead of catching air and losing it.
  • The main down-side is that turn response is slow, but turn radius is sharp. So, when entering a corner or drift you'll lay on the turn key thinking it's not responding just to find out that when it does start to respond your Sabretooth turns too far very quickly. So, you get stuck laying on the other turn key to try compensate, causing sporadic fish-tailing & swerving all over the place. Also other vehicles can easily beat it in races where pure speed can get leveraged more.
  • While its acceleration seems a tad sluggish, once it gets going it just plows along in an unstoppable fashion (through fences, small junked cars, etc) regardless of where it's going. Takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do the Sabretooth is a force to be reckoned with.
  • Unlike the other SUV's, the Sabretooth's acceleration, hill-climbing torque & engine noise suggest it sports some kind of diesel engine (which are designed more for high torque jobs like pulling, hauling ... or in this case hill climbing)
