they are fairly quick little cars, their gearing is there weak point. I used to work at a chevy dealer and drive them all the time. Got on a few times yea and there would be no contest, focus would stomp one, having never driven a reg zetec tho, i know the 2.3 would easily win tho. Pretty a stock zetec would also. I raced a kid the other with Z24 with all these mods (aka cut off muffler, PVC intake, and pretty wire loom) i smoked him sooooooooo bad it wasnt even funny. And about 30 seconds after i let off...yep you guessed it, loser fly-by. I love it.
