The more I think about it, the more I'm starting to second guess the situation. Well, some of our foci' are creating 300 + WHP, but they're getting to 60 in the mid to low 5's. The Z, particularly the Z with +/- 300 HP will be doing it in the mid to low 5's.
IT'S GONNA BE A DRIVERS RACE BIG TIME.
Mofocus: Practice your launch man. Practice it like you've never practiced anything before. At every red light you come to, practice launching all the way up to the speed limit (maybe a little quicker if you do look over your shoulder
). The Z has about the same gear ratio's as a focus. He'll be doing 32'ish in first, 58'ish in second...so you will have him in the gear ratio department since you can pull probably about 36 in first, 62 in second with the longer gears of the 5 speed focus.
I dunno man. Good luck with the race, but don't be utterly disappointed if it's really really close..or if you get beat by a hair.
