Would the Focus beat the Mustang? I used to have a NICE black 04 Mustang, but hydroplaned and totaled it out. Now I have the Focus and everyone tells me it'll beat my late Mustang. Is this true?

if its auto maybe and if its mainly stock, but i think in 04 they put out decent power

On a power to weight standpoint you're pretty evenly matched, assuming stock for stock (most mods will yield better gains on a V6.)
The Mustang will hands-down win in straight line with RWD but you'd hammer the Mustang in auto-x unless you're up against a really good driver and give it a run for its money on a road course, at least if the course is evenly split between turn and straight.

*moved to drag racing*

i beat a v6 before...but i think it was one of the 190hp ones. both auto (i know i know) he got me off the line but i took him by at least a car...i dont know if he had any mods but it sounded like he at least had an exhaust.
i destroy all of the 140hp essex v6 ones lol...

2700 pounds vs 3400???
interesting race, and i cant believe the mid 90s v6s only push out 150 hp!!! thats crazy and the v8s only push out 215 hp and 290 of tq at 3300
so whats the chances of a slightly modded focus beating a 97 v8 mustang?

ive beat a couple v6 mustangs i gave a 06 mustang a run for his money. only got him by a bumper. but i think the focus beats the v6

I know something for sure, a 2000+ Gran Prix v6 can easily beat a stock focus, even if a woman is behind the wheel of the Prix. Is not that it happened to me, but once I saw friend of one of my friends doing that lol!!!![grinking]

I feel the same way, all my friends tell me i'd beat this punk's v6 stang(2003 maybe?) but I don't have enough confidence in my car since civics will keep up with me :(
