Racing for money is kinda stupid especially if it is on the road and just betting not an official thing. You could get killed or hurt, hurt someone else, or get your ass handed to ya. The Focus is quick but if you really want to race it, you might want to mod it a little.

LOL....haha
I beat a Lambo Diablo the other night. Smoked him from the start. I hate when that happens.
Seriously, street racing is stupid. In the words of Ultegra, take it to the track[:D]

i have a svt do i stand a chance against a 1.8t jetta? assuming we both are stock?
Only a slight chance, the 1.8T Jetta makes a hell of a lot of power in the low end where the SVT makes most if it in the high end. It would be pretty close though.

I beat a yenko nova and a shelby cobra... but the cobra only had a 327... no surprise... Seriously though... go to your local drag strip i know around here we can make runs all day for like 20 bucks on special weekends.. i don't care what anyone says, but we have all done a half at race at least, wethere it was that cocky kid in his '88 civic with a rice can or something else we all have... but it is stupid because one jerk of a wheel and your life is over.

A bit of topic but, answer this for me. Why do people in sport compacts want to race me on my motorcycle? I would never put my Focus up against a motorcycle that looks like it could break the sound barrier! I could do one of those V-8 swaps with an SVT Cobra motor, and still be embarrased by a 1.0 litre, 160hp, 400lb motorcycle.
