One little note though, the AT focus make considerably less at the wheels, those #'s are for the MT versions. Also, even mild turbo cars clear 200 whp w/ ease.

I wouldn't say I'm beating a lot of cars though. I got my butt handed to me by a Dodge Ram Diesel that night too. Looked bone stock but he cut an 8.20 . A lot of winning in the 1/8 (or 1/4) is driver skill and how good you are at getting off of the line. A good driver with a slower car will beat a bad driver w/ a faster one (within reason). Maybe there are just more "good drivers" in Foci.
