^ why can't it be done? But I do like the negativity the focus world brings out. "Nope can't be done so we will just give up" nothing is impossible just people like you make it seem impossible, take the easy way out and quit.

So there's video and pictures of a full frame focus, minus flares for slicks, going 10.09.

"Yep it definitely can't be done. Totally impossible. It's just a focus right?"

I will go find both videos of the full frame fwd foci going 10.19 a few years ago and the one last fall going 10.09.

Here ya go big guy.

10.19 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtgD_uUE3zA

10.09 - http://www.dragtimes.com/Ford-Focus-Timeslip-22253.html

Here are some pics of the focus that ran the 10.09. For some reason they do not have the video up any more. They were talking about going into the 9's so that may be the reason but whatever.

And I underestimated it, it's 687whp and 782wtq.

Joe with the Focus wagon ran 9`s didnt he ? altho it was with the 2.3 lima engine was still a focus
Enough money , time and know how and anything can be done

He would only need to loose 1 sec off my 10.95 times I did on DOT tires , slicks would drop that a good bit , take out some weight and with enough money spent $20,000+ I can see it happening

That wagon is rwd too which helps out.

I'm not even spending $20k for my whole build, suspension, slicks, clutch, fuel system. Mine will be at $8-9k if that.
