No, I have personally seen this car hit triple digits faster than you can blink. The guy's capable of dipping below 10's but doesn't because of all the regulations tracks put on you when you do that. It has an incredibly large turbo, and by the way, it is an Integra.

If you're still set on the fact that Focuses are slow piles of crap then tell it to the huge Harley riding tuner "Turbo Tom" who built a 700whp Focus on the ordinary factory 4-cyl Zetec engine with an auto transmission that he took apart because, and I quote, "It scared him." Of course you can't put all that power down in a 2600 lb FWD car, so it was detuned to 430-something so it could actually run. Ended up running around 10's for same reasons as above.

You see the Focus loses to a RICER. Ok 700Hp, wow people in RX-8`s are pushing over 1000HP. And listen to this bad boy:


Now the Focus is a nice car, but when it comes to racing it is in fact a low piles of crap unless you show me proof.

BTW read the comments on that video. That Focus isn't supercharged, or it's being driven by a grandma.

Do you even know how to read? All he said was that it would keep up in the corners.

And if you want to talk about modding either of them to extremes, you are talking about race cars, which compete on a very even plane in the first place. It's a good car. But like the Focus, it isn't the end-all be-all.

That. I think I proved beyond a doubt it can drag race too, which the car really is designed not to do. Please stop arguing with a racer about this stuff man. I may only have 2 years under my belt, but I know what I'm talking about. I've shown you more proof than I should have. I'm tired.

Drag races dont prove Squat first of all. And dude, a Focus is lighter then a RX-8. Thats it. It isn't built to race. I dont care how you tune it up. I would take the Mazda RX- over the Ford Focus any day. The Focus can not take a RX-8 and I would put money on it.

You're WRONG. The Focus is Ford's flagship WRC car. It's won several events, including the manufacturer's title for two consecutive years. And it's a cheap pile of crap. Listen to CompMan.
