hahahahaha...funny BlkZX3
That car is incredible. I posted it a while back, and someone else probably posted it before me. I like the quarter panels they put on, but I don't like the spoiler protruding out of the back window. It's still FWD, so it's unnecissary, but they do need something for sideways drift though. That's MEGA turbo charged!!

that focus is a drag car, it doesn't drift. that focus is FWD, it doesn't drift. and if you knew how fast that thing goes (it's in the 7s) you would understand that it actually does need a spoiler. at that point, they don't put something large and bulky for show. if it's on there, you can bet your buttons it has a function.

I got 200WHP just by putting one of those 12VDC portable frigs in my engine bay and used a 200amp vacuum cleaner motor to force the cold air from the frig to the throttle body. Anything is possible if you try...

I am sorry but you are all wrong.

First off, the car never went faster than an 8 second ET.

Second, it is real and made more than 800 horsepower.

Third that car is no longer around, it was dismantled and sold for parts. Because shaun carlson the driver went to mopar to run an SRT-4 drag car. Apparently ford stopped backing sport compact drag racing, thats why there is no Hoyos racing focus, AEBS focus or Meguiars focus.
