Lets Race
 
A little fun topic here to get everyone's minds off all the doom and gloom plaguing this forum.. What cars have you gone head to head with in a 1/4 drag or w/e. win or lose lets hear about it. (I know the focus isn't a sports car by any means but doesn't mean you can't have a little fun once in a while) my '12 is still stock (sadly) and have won against a 2008 Mitsubishi eclipse gs that sports a 2.4L I4 with 162HP, I have also won against a 2006 Hyundai Sonata V6 that sports a 3.3L with 235hp. The one car I lost too was a Chevrolet Cobalt SS.

It's against the forum rules to talk about street racing.

I had some guy trying to give me a run in a MK1 Focus then he got butthurt when I kept pulling away from him. Outside of that I doubt my Focus will see a dragstrip but my STI sees plenty and I beat alot of interesting cars with that.

It voids your warranty to race the car. even 1/4 mile trips

Why would you want to race a car that goes 0-60 in 9 secs? Seems pointless to me! If I wanted to race someone (which I don't), I'd used my Supercharged Benz SLK230. A bit faster then my Focus....

Anyway street racing is dumb and gets people killed....keep it on the track.

How would they be able to tell the difference between a 1/4 mile drag strip run vs accelerating full bore from a standing stop at a redlight onto a freeway entrance ramp which happened to also be exactly 1/4 of a mile long?

I posit that unless it actually was a factor in whatever component failed they would never know the difference in the first place.

You shouldn't race on the streets. And you certainly shouldn't talk about it. If you race on a track, make sure you tell your insurance company first.

Did I say strictly street racing???? NO I said 1/4 drag which can very well mean strip. All u people with ur panties in a bunch calm down.
