As for the having a corvette engine....So. As for being a "Race Car" I do believe the camaro gets 29 mpg on teh highway and about 26 in town straight outta the box from 98 - 02 so correct me if I am wrong but I don't know of the last time a race car got mpg similar to my wifes focus. And as for it being a gm shitbox....I wanna see you get 505 hp and 470 to the rear tires out of a pushrod motor and still have it driveable on the street.
Wow, truly a moronic statement. Gas economy doesn't dictate if a car is built in a "race car" mold. If that was the case, my ST is a
g Ferrari with it's 15mpg right now.
You want answer's on Tom's Focus ask him. Go post in the Focus-Power forum and he'll give you the technical specs on it. Yeah, 505hp that you'd never use on the street. Nice thing to have. Unusable power on as it was stated, a shitbox. Um, Ford Mustang GT500, roughly same numbers, stock, daily drivable. Um, Dodge Viper, 500/500, stock, daily drivable.
You're just mad a Camaro is the Ferrari of white trash, period. Like I said, go blow the guy in the Camaro and maybe that will make you feel better about your ZTS complex. Oh, and as I said, for what that guy spent on it, you could make most any car really go fast. Go cry to the camaro forums then that the Focus guys are making fun of you and your penile defunction when it comes to GM.
It's hilarious you come in here crying Foci are slow, but you bought one, even after a test drive. Car must be like the driver huh? You get home, sit down to dinner and it sank in that the test drive sucked, the car was slow, and what, oh shit, you bought the car anyways? If it's SO slow, then you must be a
g moron to go ahead and buy it regardless just to bitch about it being slow.
Oh, and the point WAS brought up. Explain FACTS to why the Zetec is a SLOW motor. What? Can't? Exactly. Now get the
out and don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, moron.
