The Focus doesn't look that bad. The wing flows pretty well, but the one thing that gets me on it is the mesh at the bottom of the bumper. It looks like a lip kit that and it looks crooked. I have no clue what CPT means for the Explorer, so I'm lost on that.

Somehow I would think Compton would be a stupid place to rep, what with CRASH hooking people up for simple affiliation(not that Anyone associates Compton with gangs or anything, lol).

if you really want to et technical about it in 68 pontiac did that for their gto. its was an option called voe (vaccum operated exhaust) it was a lever on teh dash that controled two vacum motors, one for each muffler that when pulled opened a door that dumped the exhaust befiore teh rear wheels. making hte car insanely loud. needless to say this option didnt last very long.

But in Nissan's case it's more widespread and electronically controlled. No levers or switches to flick. Just mash the gas and go!!
