    WRX vs. Ford Focus

    Okay, maybe this wasn't fair, but I couldn't resist. I pulled up next to this "sported" ford focus hatch with a damn cute girl riding shotgun (didn't even see the driver, oops). We're sitting at the stoplight less than a block from my driveway. The light turns green and I start to move, a little faster than normal, but not racing. I notice that the focus is keeping up with me, and I hear the engine starting to wail. So I push the clutch in, revved it up, dropped the clutch and launched the little ford into my rearview mirror. By the time I hit 40mph, the li'l guy (and his cute girlfriend) are focusing (get it?) on my tail lights from 2 car lengths behind. I hit the brakes to turn into my driveway. I wave. He honks. We're both happy. I love this car.

    You know dR, if we did that then our enrollment would skyrocket because they'd have to sign up to fight with you!

    I love the WRX, but I don't think the SVT Focus is a POS...by no means...sure it's only FWD unlike it's WRC counterpart but it's got a potent little engine that has some potential but possibly it's greatest attribute is the Getrag 6 speed box...and we all know how fragile the Suby box is compared to any Getrag. Mind you, the Focus is quite nimble as well.

    also,

    the SVT Focus will cost a few thousand less than the WRX... Lets not forget that... Thats a pretty sizeable chunk o change in this price range...

    Indeed, quite a chuck of change....enough for serious rally-spec suspension or a decent turbo kit, etc.
