focus in Louisiana That beat an SRT 4

I have a friend that drives an black SRT, he is on leave right now in Louisiana . He called back up here a few days ago and said he raced a focus I don't know if it was a sadan, ZX3 or SVT, but he said that it smoked him bad. He said the focus had alot of work done to it, I"m not sure what but he must at least have a turbo. My freind told me the focus driver was impressed with the SRT, and also kind of mad that the SRT was able to hang on his bumper, being an all stock car. I was wondering if it's anyone on this site. He's cool, he never talks down to the focus but you can always see I'm the outcast of the group. When he told me this I was smileing all day long. Go focus!

I've had to get my own respect with this group. After beating a couple of their tegras I was look at a little differnt. Haven't tried the SRT yet but, what the hell I'll still race him just to see him take off. Tried racing an RX8 got smoked but it was still fun watching him pass me like I was out for a sunday drive. LOL. I'm hoping that the focus owner is on this site though. THat would be cool. Who ever it is has put alot of time and money into there focus to beat an SRT

That's for sure. But I'm sure it's true though. I can't think of any reason for my freind to lie. I would think twice if I was him to even mention it. He knows I'm going to give him shit about it. WIth a turbo and the bolt ons I think a Focus could beat an SRT pretty easy.

I seen 4 of them at the track a week ago. All them spun tires like a mo-fo for I don't know how long but they would scoot after that. Fastest one I seen ran a 13.7.
