it goes on the car like this:



The two pieces on the drivers side come up under the headlight (you might have to do some trimming)

I don't mean to sound dumb, but how would a Focus deal with 500hp? I mean traction?

500whp? there is not really much dealing there unless you have slicks. 1st gear is a joke, 2nd gear is a joke, 3rd gear is a joke, and 4th gear is still pretty funny. it is my understanding that traction is pretty much a thing of the past once you push your way past 300whp in the focus. now if you feather it just right you COULD hook up 3rd pretty well on some good DOT radials and maybe even 2nd gear too a little bit but shifting from gear to gear and going strait to WOT there is no way you would do anything but blow the tires off with that kind of power.
