And pinks is more like poker. It's who can BS who the most, and the biggest con usually wins the race.
lol geo metros are 55 hp 3 cylinders:P

I dont think anyone ever answered the question. So as far as I know lengths is when two cars line up to race and if a car asks for 1 length they get a car length head start. So instead of neck and neck they are now front bumper to back bumper. Two car lengths and so on just move the slower car up more so the race is "even" if you will.

Um, yeah, probably the best power to weight ratio of any 4-cylinder out there and with a simple few bolt ons, compares easily to most any other standard production cars. Yep, slow. Oh, wait, how about this and your 4 posts in the forum with the slow ass ZTS (sorry Goat, but yours is faster, remember that), here ya go sport! Boo ya!

I did awhile back, but people choose to not read threads and skip to the end so they can be in on a topic that is over their head.

I drive a trans am there chief, so don't tell me about slow and I am not a hater on 4 cylinder cars in general. I would takea 4g63-t every day of the week over a focus's zetec motor with a turbo on it. They just are very poorly designed in my opinion and the reason I do call you all slow is because I read a kill story where a guy bragged about beating one of those little suzuki cars and acted like he was some tough shit. Wanna see a good kill story....

This is not only a kill story but it also has the video to back it up. And if you don't know what a ford GT is then don't bother watching it.

get off your high horse man " And if you don't know what a ford GT is then don't bother watching it." Are you serious? Do you think just because we drive focus' that we dont know anything? Get a clue man. For one thing, the Zetec is not a poorly designed engine, it wasnt built for high horsepower, so what. Yes I to would rather have a 4g63 engine, they are probably one of the best 4 cyclinder platforms ever made, but what does that have to do with anything? If you have nothing positive to add, stop posting.
