Consider me one of those who was disappointed with RSR's speed and length of the race portion. Indiana Jones, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Matterhorn, Big Thunder, CA Screamin, and TOT are far more thrilling and exciting.
They even toned down RSR's interior scene speed since the grand opening. During the firetruck/sheriff and tractor portions, the car would accelerate around turns and go much faster. Personally I don't see the point of a "race" attraction when you water it down so heavily for 5 year olds.
