My first run with the Focus today...

I have a buddy with a '98 Nissan 240sx SE. I thought that his car was a tad faster, b/c I drove it. We ran three different lights, and whoever got the better launch won by about 1/2 a car length. Felt pretty good about that....

I've actually had both, and I think my SVT has more fun, although you can't argue with the 1.9 sec 60' times of the 240.

Hmmm when it comes to Fun to drive its between the SVTF and the Subaru WRX for me but anyway the 240 would be a good car to race against along with civics. preludes. and minis
