03 V6 Chrysler 300 vs 160whp Focus?
My home boy just picked one up and he already called me out. I still got 8 months on this deployment, so its going to be a while. I think I have the advantage: stock weight, lsd, mtx, 160whp, pretty good driver. Him: auto, lots of weight. He did say he got the car side ways pretty eazy when he first looked at the car. That got me wondering

The V6 300 is heavy as shit......also ugly as hell IMO

V6 300 is a heavy beast for that V6 to push around... You actually might be even, unless he does some mods...

Unless he's modded, you've got him. That's the previous-gen 300, and that 4-speed auto was *NOT* tuned for any kind of performance. Even with 250hp, that car is ~3600lbs, and that's about half a ton more than any FoFo. 0-60 is timed at low to mid-8s, so you should pretty much own him with a ~160whp mtx Focus.

I've already taken down the newer 3.5L 300 model in my bone stock '08 Focus, so you'll have no problem wiping that thing all over the place.

wait does he have the 2.7 or the 3.5?

2.7 200 hp
3.5 250 hp

either way you got him easy.

you will take him HANDS DOWN. those things are slow, assuming of course it is stock.

Ive had a 2007 300 for about 2 weeks now as a rental car...its a turd.

though, it can be powerbraked to provide a fairly decent launch, but after that, it is slow as balls.

not even worth your gas in my opinion.

Just wondering, Ive eaten alot of V6's with my fofo, but some of these new V6's that are out are bad ass.
