How come nobody wants to post racing on youtube?

With all the beefed up focuses on here there are hardly any Focus or SVT VS blah car videos on youtube. I know there are guys on here that have over 300hp (like the 300hp club). Anybody reading this who has a beefed up focus post your ride drag racing against another car on youtube. I love watching these cars beat imports. The only videos I see are focuses with turbos getting dynoed or watching there speedometer. I did see this one SVT on a track with an EVO and I thought that was pretty cool.

Us Focus guys gotta represent. When I get my car fixed up I'm gonna post alot on youtube.

TBH in doesn't take much to beat a Focus, even an SVT in the straights if it's all motor, unless it's a modded duratec!

if you're talking about track type vids, they are hard to find, but they're out there. try searching for phrases like "ford focus track" or "autocross" or something. there are quite a bit of auto-x vids. If you're talking street racing, I'm pretty sure the mods would lock that up pretty quick. They don't quite condone the street racing stuff here.

What's duratec have to do with it? What does the integra type R Have that the focus doesn't? Why is their engine more efficient? I know the Japanese have used 4 cylinders a lot longer cuz fuel for them has always been more expensive but I'm sure with the proper upgrades we should be able to make our engines efficient. Weather it's duratec or Z-tech, lets see videos of beefed up focuses burning rice burners!

This site has a lot of active members, that means that a lot of people still have foci. Post up good drag racing videos of some bad ass focuses. If the imports can do it so can we. I don't believe that a ford focus cannot beat an import in a drag race.

Those guys don't even put what each car has for mods. Just beef up a focus and race it against an import pt it on youtube and call it a day.

From what I can tell, the Hondas seem to make more HP. I don't know the details, but my guess is that everything is much lighter than the Focus, crank, rods, chassis etc.

I have a hard time keeping up with prepared Civics/Integras, but I have watched many of them pop an engine.

Since the duratec was used in the Ranger pickup, and is also used in the Escape, I'm guessing it's just a bigger heavier engine. And the Focus weighs too much overall.

I hate Hondas, but they do build a light and powerful car.

If you want to see my videos, just search FSP505 on youtube. I've posted about 9 of them. It's only recently that I've modified my car and developed better driving skills that are putting me in striking distance of the average Honda at the track.

I just love being the underdog.......

Some people don't for a very good reason! SLEEPER! Some people don't like the world to know they have a 300hp focus cause then the secret's out and you no longer have the advantage of being "just a focus." That's probably why alot of people don't post it.
