Question..

Had a friend call me a few min ago wanting to race her '06 Fusion ( 2.3 Duratec/5-Speed, Only mods.. 17's ) and myself, '06 Focus (2.0 Duratec/5-Speed ) I know she's a bit heavier then I am. Just wondering who might win. Doubt I'll race her.. just messing around with the idea. Besides, I know the FF decals add atleast 50 hp! Should be an easy win! lol... Thanks for your input

You should beat her easy, but honestly the race is not worth the gas.

I agree there.. It's really not worth the gas. Besides, I can't drive anyway, due to the fact I possibly have torn or somehow damaged my ACL in my left knee. Just tossed the idea around for the fun of it.

Just give her the stats of yours and her car, see the estimated 0-60 and 1/4 that can be found on the net. Stapel them all together, and then give them to her and say "I win".

????? GO RACE HER!!! That's what it's all about.Dynos,power numbers,tests,talk..blah blah blah..it's all worthless.Racing is a real life experience.Man(or woman) and machine against each other.The fastest car does NOT aloways win.The best Combo does....Just do it.Win or lose,it is a HUGE rush.I love it....

you guys need to stop asking if you can win. and just race. its more fun to go to the track or go out with the friends and block off the back roads and just run them and see what happends

he said he can't really run b/c he has a busted up ACL... Not exactly somehting you can actually drive with. Depending on how good of a driver she is and you are once you heal up.. she may give you a run for your money, but my money is on you.
