you know what I do when I see someone trying to race me in and out of traffic? I call the cops.

People that pull those stunts are just trying to kill someone. Sure, you might assure proper clearance before you cut in front and between cars, but you piss people off and scare others when you do that, which in turn, has a habit of causing accidents. But I guess you'd just count me as another "SVT Kill", huh?

Now, let's see if you can take me from a stoplight, or beat my time on an autocross course.

People like you cause people like me to have to pay more for car insurance. Ass.

BTW...my SVT is the best thing since the introduction of the gasoline engine and no one is going to convince me otherwise :)
revamp is online now

(you know what I do when I see someone trying to race me in and out of traffic? I call the cops.)

If that's what u do then fine. But as for many people u should know that street racers like danger. I have never met a street racer who doesn't like it. I myself like danger. I know what I do is illegal and dangerous to myself and others. YET. Ive done it since im 16. Ive been racing for 3 years now and racing in the highway is not the kind of thing you do everyday. Every once in a while I go out with a girl or some friends and sometimes this car teases you ebough to make you floor it. I do it a lot but I try not to over do it while im driving. In the highway a mistake u or some1 makes is bad to others. Anyway if I don't floor it on the highway Im on the quater mile or wait for an open track day. It's no biggy. But sometimes u like going fast and every chance u get u like to put the pedal to the metal. Im like that. Dont know about the rest of ya. But if you're into cars sometimes you just wanna floor it and get a thrill out of it.

By the by.
SVT's are not slow dude. They can be really quick and tricky bastards. So don't underestimate them. Trust me. I know what Im talking about here. Ive driven some and raced some. I know for facts. Yet it's true ZX3's have more performance options that an SVT but here in P.R. we like messing with our cars. If we dont find the part we build if possible. FACT most 60% of the cars in our club are ATX and they race just as hard as MTX. All the focus' in our clu are fast and hot.

this thread has been painful to read. Focus racer, are u sure the svt was racing? Either that or that guy didn't know how to drive that car. You can make an auto quick i know but u won't be able to beat an svt. Your also probably one of the dumbest people on this page. Street racing in traffic? are you retarded? your the reason street racing is so frowned upon. you ruin it forte rest of us. Good job, keep living in your fast and furious world

Very funny! I knew the guy and yes he told me he was racing. We basiclly swithced lanes until we one of us got outrunned. And I dont frown street racing.
The highway is just one of many places to race. Yes it was a little irresponsable but yet and still Street Racing is dangerous to anyone no matter were you do it.

I thought it would kind of weird if they did. So I emailed the contact on the SVT website and asked them if they had ever sold the SVT Focus in Puerto Rico.

The answer...





....no

I guess a lot of people must import SVT's down there.
Hmm what can i say, if you don't lived here, don't talk s@#t!! Coz, probably your SVT website partner, doen't know a crap!! There are more than 6 exclusive ford dealer in Puerto rico, and all sales Focus SVT, and all came with the stupid US winter package!!!! be cool dude ;)
