Me being a Zetec guy, i understand what they're saying and i understand what you're saying. With a good driver, which this guy in question was not, a 2.3 duratec can run with an SVT. Keep in mind that the SVT isn't a 1/4 mile Monster. It's gearing and power band make it an Auto X Killing Machine. Depending on where the cars are located can also effect 1/4 times as well.

Basically, what's being said in the post is that a guy in a Saleen Focus stop by, thought he was the Sh!t, took off and trying to show off and made a a$$ of himself. From what the poster was sayin, is that he can't drive and can loose to a ATX Saturn Ion.

What LastRites is stating is that he hasn't run up against a Focus 2.3 Duratec yet to get a good opinion yet, but he's modded. So up against a pretty much stock Duratec, he should win no problem......

In all actually, the Focus is a generally slow car. Come on 15+ second 1/4 mile? That's nothing. Break into the 13's then there's something to talk about. Just my .02
