You will laugh at this....

I went to the Ford dealership today to buy my thermostat housing and saw this kid I know. He has a ZX2 Escort....I noticed the dealership has a 2004 Silver SVT Focus and asked him if he saw it. He told me that he did and that he drove it.

This is the funny part....

Then he told me that his ZX2 is much faster than it...I laughed at him.....I asked him if he was talking about the same car as I was....He pointed right at the SVT....I just shook my head and walked away.

HAHA thats funny. Same thing happened with my car. the night i brought it home i was showing it off to some friends parked at a lot where lots of cars gather. One guy came and looked at it and told me that he had test driven it a week before. he said he didnt take it because it wasnt fast enough for him. i noticed he was driving a Neon (( lmao)) I told him, " the svt focus wasnt fast enough for you, so you bought a neon ?? " he says it will be much faster once he gets the " turbo stuff" in that he ordered from the internet. roflmao, wut a tool

Yeah that's a bit odd..... I know the ZX2 did have a special edition, not sure which kind but it had an intake and a bunch of other stuff done to it and it was quick but even still, the SVTF is alot faster.....

from a road test....
Weighing in at just under 2,500 pounds, the ZX2 accelerates from 0-60 mph in slightly less than 8 seconds.
...i remember somebody tested one and got a mid seven second 60 run....the cars were no slouch...and this is stock.
