Auto mazda 2.3
BMW auto (just the cheaper model I think)
Dodge Dakota auto
Audi 1.8t manual
2.0t or 1.8t genesis manual
Hyundai tiburon v6 manual I have yet to beat. Those things move.
These are the cars I've beaten 1/8mile
Are cars are nothing special. But that guy who just spent 10-20 grand and lines up against the focus and gets a run for its money. I'm sure it gets them thinking

Street fun doesn't mean much anyway. I boxed out a mustang gt trying to pass me in the turn lane from a stop in a Camry. I didn't get the jump on him, I'm just convinced it must have been stick, and he couldn't drive for Shit. The point being, there are plenty of idiots on the roads driving nice cars, so not much point in bragging. A rabid monkey could have outrun that Camry in a gt, but the point is beating someone to a light doesn't make your car fast.

Saying most stupidest doesn't make you sound any smarter, and ANY kind of off-road use of a street vehicle CAN in fact void your warranty. If you get into an accident at the track, your insurance won't cover it, if you have a malfunction, even on a warranted part, and you tell your dealership that you were at the track (why you would, I don't know) they probably won't cover it either.

Why should Ford or any manufacturer cover under warranty track racing or any form of street racing? Why warrant illegal activities (street racing) or using the car in a way it wasn't intended to be used (drag racing an econobox)?

The one car I lost too was a Chevrolet Cobalt SS.
This sounds like something that a teenage boy would care about.

In any case, driving an econo car in a straight line is not my idea of excitement.

Can't help but agree here, traded out of my 300whp Mazdaspeed 3 to get away from all of that garbage, it's the furthest thing from my mind in my Focus, lol.
