I just like how these chevy guys are coming on here and talking smack. They just can't get over being beat by a Focus.

Are you surprised? Most people have no idea that an SVT or ST even exists. The look on any Evo owner's face is priceless when he's getting tailgated on a road course by a Focus, too.

its not the fact that people cant stand getting beat by a focus, theres always faster cars out there. anything can be made fast with enough $$. this particular case its where a focus running 10.6 in the 1/8 (mid 16 sec 1/4) says he can take out low 14 sec stock LT1s. thats just absurd

BTW, Roushturboedzx3, just cause youve gotta turbo doesnt mean youve automatically got the win against an LT1. i asked what your car ran a few posts earlier and you have yet to respond. 13s? 12s maybe? you realize all it takes for a LT1 fbody to hit those numbers is a few boltons right?

regardless, the OP said he would race a different LT1 fbody to compare to his friends that he claimed he beat. heres his chance to see what one in good tune can do

well, i have nothing else of value to add to the general tech or discussion forums cause i dont own a focus

funny how you took me out of context and didnt quote the rest of my statement, as it would have made my intention and reason for being here alot clearer

the whole point of my posting was to shed some insight on GM performance. due to the fact that a mid-low 16 sec focus said that he beat a low 14 sec LT1, and 95% of the members on this site either believed him or agreed that it could happen consistantly, i felt i had to educate the members here who apparantly are lacking in knowledge of GM cars

Judging the knowledge of 95% of the members here by reading a single thread will only lead to wrong answers.

Let's put this in perspective: you joined here because you saw the 1/8th mile numbers and a Focus badge and presumed we're all wrong. In fact, before you even joined, you presumed that all Focuses are slow and that any V8 thirdgen could beat them.

So after some facts were sorted out, you learned that stock SVTs and STs could run low 15's, and I learned that the OP ran a really shit time for what he is driving. This could easily translate into all the cars at that track that day running shit times, cause that Focus launch doesn't look bad to me. I guess we'll never know unless he runs another V8 thirdgen and we get proof of it.

However, after all of that, you commented that a thirdgen will outrun a Focus in autocross because it was "built for handling." Thirdgens were definitely great handling cars... in 1982. You opened a can of worms on yourself by 1: showing you are still in fact lacking knowledge of these cars, and 2: trying to quote blanket knowledge of thirdgens that is nearly 30 years old. You said you'd put money down that a stock thirdgen would outrun a stock Focus in autocross. What? I will borrow someone's stock Focus and take that bet if you really want to make that happen.

If you feel you need to educate people, you should really learn what you're teaching first. No offense or anything; it's not like I know you personally. But I'm calling it like I see it.
