kylesvt720 ^^ Obviously, the only mention of 05-07 STs was that one guy had one and thought his 12+ pulled harder. (Butt dyno I know.) I'm currently on a 7 day test drive with a Sonic RS. I love everything about it besides the power. Need to ride in a friends that has full exhaust and a Trifecta tune to really get a feel for what it could be.

sleepyboy What the old foci run at certain power levels doesn't necessarily mean the 2012-13's will run the same. They weigh a few hundred pounds more than the previous models.

Albarry I ran a best of a 16.36. with Steeda intake.

_RED_ My local track closed so don't know. Im not the best driver so I wouldn't be the best to ask , I could never get a good launch in any fwd car I've owned.

I owned 2 ST models before this one, and this one is faster . . .
Thanks Captain Obvious, luckily this forum has people from all over the country, July isn't exactly the best time to head to the track in places like FL, TX, etc. As for your 05-07 STs, were they stock?

Yeah, this is my question. To build an ST how I'd like would be about $30k, if I can get an SE quick enough to keep me happy, I'll save a bunch of $$$.

StingRay I dynoed at 175 and took it to the strip this past weekend, good DA but no track prep and I hit consistent 16.2s @ 89mph. If there was prep and/or I had a sticky tire on it I should be closer to mid 15s.

The Prius is built for fuel economy. The Focus is built as a multi-purpose car with both fuel economy and driving dynamics in mind.

I suppose you have a point.
