That was kinda pointless... FJ is full of semi-pro and amateur race drivers and would've called out the haters in a second.

bottom line is a V8 thirdgen, of any year, should have hung with you from start to finish. looking at the video and seeing you put distance on him the whole way down the track MEANS it was a V6

if your friends car is truely an LT1, it would absolutely RAPE a mid 16 sec Focus. no questions asked. theres just no way in hell a near stock Focus is going to beat or come close to a low 14 sec car...
You're basing your argument on the assumption that the Focus ST is a mid-16 second car... which it isn't. I don't know how you calculated, but the ST is a mid-to-low 15 second car in the quarter with a good driver, which the OP clearly is based on the clean launch and fast shifting. There's no question that an '05-'07 Focus ST will kill an LO3 or LG4 V8 thirdgen.
