yes thats the way a typical person would think about an atx focus after driving only a standard, but after driving an atx u learn differnt tricks such as flashing the converter or clickin the o/d button at certain rpm ranged theres alot more then just mashin down the gas, cause accutally with some atx if u mash down the gas its gunna acctually bog down then go, no w the beating an is300 or a hemi on the hwy...thats bs they wasnt racin u just thought they were they prolly just pressed the gas a lil more ive beetn a hemi b4 but thats with headers exhuast plugs wires nitrous and couple other thingsand that was also at 90+mph ive also raced a few svt focus with nitrous i can beet one but i have 2 do a double shot take one hit and when it wears off take another, thats the only way u really gunna beet one cause once that second stage of the intake kicks in on those it makes it a hell of a lot harder to keep up with.
