I Was Impressed!

Well, the other night i had some girls in teh back of my car and they wanted me to go fast, so being stupid i did. I didnt know the road at all, well i was going about 90 and this freaking sharp ass turn snuck up on me, my first thought was omg, im going to wreck, i had never really tried to see how well the focus would handle. WEll when i got to the corner i turned as hard as i could, the ass end started slidding, and all 4 tires screached, then i smashed the gas and got traction. I got a huge ass grin on my face. I couldnt believe how well it took the turn. I thought for sure i was going to loose it. I cant believe how well it handled. This car kicks ass at handling. I want to auto x it now haha. The lowering springs and tires really helped me get better traction i guess.

Yea this is talked about a lot. The focus actually is one of the best handling cars out. Now if you could only have awd to go with it.

Tisk Tisk, driving fast in your baby. That's a no no. I always see Focus owners drive a bit too fast. I mean, yeah I know they drive well but man...don't kill someone!

WHo here has taken there focus to the limits, i mean not just taking a corner kinda fast, i mean so fast that all the tires screach, and the ass end slides, and u nail the gas to get going straight again..... Its freaking FUN AS HELL, but dangerous. Remember, this was done in a closed course with a professional driver, please do not try at home :)
