It can't be that bad for it since cars equipped with sport shifts are the same thing. Like on my car car for example, it's an automatic. But it's got that sport shift mode and paddles that replaces the conventional 1, 2, 3, D. Unless the cars with sport shifts have a differently designed transmission that was made to handle it.

Yeah, it is different. I've heard of people with Focuses tearing up gears doing that. Plus, in my case, it's pointless anyway, haha.

It is dropped, lol!
It looked like a SUV before, but I like my mild drop. The body kit also is kinda high, but it's good for daily driving. The suspension setup is killer though, and I bet I could beat a M3 down an off ramp.

Oh yeah, turns out my rims slowed me down in the quarter I think (My gas tank also had an extra 3 gallons or so from last time). I was .3 seconds slower for some reason...

But I raced against a Roush turbo Focus and it was AWESOME.

I want to get some coil-overs for my Neon. The thing is tall, and cornering becomes more fun too.

Soooooo...
I made it and I'm one of five candidates up for FocusFanatics.com ride of the month. If you guys feel a compelling need to sign up and vote for me...

Nah, I'm happy I just made it in. That tells me I'm doing something right.
