You need upgraded engine mounts. You're getting wheel hop and shaking in the front when launching, right? The stock engine mounts on our Focus are ridiculously soft. But like what mac.mogul said, it's because it's a passenger car. Upgrade the rear motor mount, most of us are use one from a Mazdaspeed 3, and then hope someone comes out with at least some inserts for the others very soon!
