update, scion wins

just got back from racing, my boy is sitting right here. the scion definitely boogies, we already have tested the limits and are beginning to assess the first upgrade,,,handling. the car is tight but ona slight turn has some body roll while in fifth gear and high speed. a downshift corrects the issue, but sawy bars and a lower height will definitely add an advantage. my focus on the other hand is good through turns, ok on pick up but top end is not there. i kept up with the scion, but would have never passed him, not with my atx and light mods. once i beef it up and blah blah,,,i should take him, but by then he will have a turbo too.


in short it was fun, we will do it again, especially as the cars grow,,,,,scion 1: focus 0
