"Focus's are slow period. It takes more work to make afocus fast than it does to make almost any other type of 4 cylinder car fast."
^What about Geo Metro's?

And pinks is more like poker. It's who can BS who the most, and the biggest con usually wins the race.

I watch the show almost every week just for kicks. Sometimes theres good racing sometimes its just funny to see them argue. I even went to see the live taping at my local track, took almost 3 hours to tape 5 races.... alot of bullshit, but some decent racing.

Yes it does seem that things are alwasy breaking on this show.... I find it funny guys can go to the track every friday night and run there cars back to back "hot lapping" there cars and can race every weekend and have the car run constant 9s but these guys cant get there car down the track 5 times with 15-20 min inbetween. Now the other side to this is some of these cars are built in just a few weeks with not alot of testing. I believe one of the mustangs was built the week before going to the show. Alot of these guys do a decent job...

The show was decent the first season, but has continued to go down hill. Everyone just [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] all the time.
Also, why did they do the races with the Honda's. That made no since at all. They need a extra 200hp to catch up from bad FWD launch. Now if they did CRX vs FOcus or SRT-4 or Celica. Maybe then it would make since. But a 600hp Civic gets owned by a 500hp Camaro.

I agree it should be run what you brought with you. But, there in lies the problem. People dont come to loose, they come to win. Even if they are labeled [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] they still came out with the W. Hell, anyone watch Nascar. Take a good look at Jeff Gordon. LOL

The host is just a woman with a sex change. She wanted to look like vin diesel, but when he said he was gay, she was confused. LOL

Who was retarted enough to say Foci are the hardest 4cyl cars to mod. WAKE UP. Your a little bit wrong. In a line yea there not monsterous. The best one I know of runs low 10's. But, take a SVT to the AUTOX and watch everyones JAW drop when you beat them in a GROCERY GETTER. Its not all about straight line speed. If it was we would all drive Stangs, Camaros, and Supras.
