I don't have ABS or traction control EITHER... Learn to apply proper pressure to the pedal...I'm not trying to be cruel, I'm serious. I HATE ABS with a passion, I could have bought my focus wagon with rear disks, but it came with TCS and ABS and I didn't want it. So, I exchanged my drums with a full SVT set-up.

I don't mean to be cocky, but our cars don't stop that hard. You need to work on pedal modulation... I roadraced for 12 years, and when I started to the time I stopped, I learned ALOT. That doesn't mean you need to go racing, but trust me, the focus doesn't need gadgets to make it stop well, all those things are a crutch.
