In all seriousness though. it wasnt a bad motor per say, but it wasnt built for triple-digit speeds. In truth, the whole focus platform wasnt really made for 100+. Its a commuter car, not a race-car. Even the SVTF became unstable past 100.
That i definitely agree with. The stock suspension simply cannot safely handle those high speeds. Especially after ten years of wear and tear.
