anyone go up against the new focus st?

One of my buddys at the shop that I work at just pick one up but he doesn't want to go up against me in a pull but he'll try with anyone else he's already tuned and still won't go up, I've drivin it its got some balls on the low end but top end seems rather sad. Has anyone else got to go up against one or drive them? Really nice in the turns tho I'd have to say.

If you are stock you will win. If you have any upgrades you will destroy it. It weighs more or less the same as us but is way down on power. I have outrun 2 now and I'm pulling throttle and over boosting like mad.
Cobb has entered the game now and produces a tune that put them around 300hp and 380tq so I have read. I have yet to match up against one of those.

He just installed steedas tune and I don't feel the diference even tho the time between the stock drive and the tune drive I really don't think he's pushing anywhere near 300, I need to run him and see if I can take him stock ms1k will be in by the end of next month then it won't even be a challange..

Steedas tune adds around 15hp peak to peak I read and around 30hp and 60tq lower in the powerband so he is closer to 300 then you think. It might be a good match since you are stock.

Bench racing is ghey though so go out there and do it. Take a video no matter what. GL

Re: anyone go up against the new focus st?

I haven't myself but I seen a post about one on the Facebook page recently. From what I remember the CSRT was all stock with only ms1k added and the focus had the Cobb and full Bolton's. Apparently of all the races they were exactly dead even. So in other words it takes 2-3k into a focus to keep up with $500 into our car.

I've seen a couple around town here in Ottawa, but they didn't bother with me

Drive one and if you are like me you will be more then let down, especially once price is included. As for the Fiesta, it's even slower from what has been reported, but still a great drive.

thats pretty much the norm for them stock. The newest issue of car and driver did a drivelines review of the Cobb tuned st and rated it at 300hp and 380tq(I'm sure that's crank HP). They were able to get 5.5s 0-60 and 14.2s@100 in the 1/4. Very under par, IMO for the power. I still like this car a lot but can't justify the price for one.
