Focus SFE
« on: February 25, 2012, 08:09:47 AM »
Humm...  Lets see which Thunderbirds my Focus can beat in the 1/4 mile!!!

Year Make & Model (0-60) (1/4 Mile)
20121Ford Focus SE 7.6 16.3
1955 Ford Thunderbird 292ci 11.5 18.0
1973 Ford Thunderbird 460ci 9.0 17.4
1980 Ford Thunderbird 302ci 11.1 18.0
1983 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe 9.7 17.1
1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe 8.5 16.3
1991 Ford Thunderbird LX 9.0 16.7
1994 Ford Thunderbird LX V6 8.8 16.4



I would assume that my Focus is slightly faster being an SFE.  After-all it has air dams, wind resistant hub caps and spoilers!!
 >:D
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

We outta add a Scion tC  to the list...

Was driving down the road the other day and a Scion tC was in front of me in traffic.  He was puttzing so when I saw the opportunity I passed him.  The driver decided that he was king of the road and started playing games.  He passed me and the hit his brakes and slowed down while next to a car.  I am not one to take this foolishness so I made sure that I was always in the best position to change lanes when he tried again. 

Sure enough he slowed down enough for me to catch-up and pass him and tried again, I went in the right lane.  He ended up stuck behind a car and I passed him.  He repeatedly attempted to block me and I repeatedly out maneuvered him.  Finally he went in the far right lane and I moved in the left and drove alongside him and gave him a big fat finger pointing you silly boy laugh.  He looked embarrassed and stopped playing the game knowing that he was schooled by a Focus.


NOTE:  the above could be fiction...

Gee...  Does that mean that my wee little Focus is faster than most of Freddies Thunderbirds?   :first:

That would be cool.  Line up all of Fredies T-Birds against one lowly Focus..     :'(

The 2012 Focus was too small for me.  It was designed for small Germans...  If there is such a thing...   ;)


Hurt my back crawling in and out of that tiny machine.  Traded her in for a Fusion SE 3.0L Flex Fuel.  Good bye Focus...   :'(
