years ago (like 2002) edmunds.com test drove the SVT focus (which i used to have bookmarked but not the article is gone) in putting the car thru the paces and all the normal performance tests, They were surprised to find that the SVT focus could go thru the slalom course (cone weaving) faster than any other car tested that year up to that point including the corvette, m3, and mustang for that year.

The focus wile a great handling car, can hang with the big buys thru just about any turn, will get killed once on the straights. If you take a car from around the early 2000's like yours you could very well beat them thru a corner, but if its a newer car, you most likely won't be able to.
