This is me at Englishtown back in October '10. SVT Focus with JRSC and all-season tires.
1/8mi: 9.515s @ 77.55mph...
1/4mi: 14.463s @ 99.21mph...
If I can get the launch right with some good tires, MAYBE I can get 13.9's. We'll see.
The other car was a Tiburon GT with Exhaust and who knows what else.
2015 Subaru WRX vs 2014 Ford Focus ST! Head 2 Head Ep. 50
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman gets his hands on the
all-new, 2015 Subaru WRX, as well as one of Motor Trend's favorite pocket
rockets, the Ford Focus ST. Each car costs about $30,000, sports a
2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder
engine with similar power outputs, and features a 6-speed manual
transmission. The Subaru of course features a sporty version of the brand's
"symmetrical AWD" while the Focus makes due with just the front wheels
driven. However, since it first appeared, the Focus ST has wowed the Motor
Trend staff with ability to dance around corners and, generally, not drive
and feel like a front-wheel driver. We like the Focus ST so much that we
invited it to last year's Best Driver's Car. But does the Ford have what it
takes to beat the latest street-tamed rally baby from Subaru? You're going
to have to watch and find out.
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Westridge Buick 2003 Ford Focus SVT
Westridge is excited to present this 2003 Ford Focus SVT
APPEARANCE: The SVT Focus takes an understated European
approach to contemporary sport compact styling, with no lurid
graphics or giant wings. Stealth is good. At a glance, it appears to
be just another Focus hatchback. Look closer to see the flat ``air
dam'' front fascia, with inset foglamps, and smoked headlight
coverings at the front. Flared rocker panels are found at the sides of
the three-door model, but not the five-door. Both have a ``diffuser-
look'' rear fascia, an oversize Exhaust tip, and a small ducktail
spoiler at the rear edge of the roof.
COMFORT: Like the regular ZX3 or ZX5, the SVT Focus has a
remarkable amount of interior for its small size. Four normal people
will fit, more easily in the five-door, with its better rear-seat access.
The SVT interior is of the same basic design as that of a ZX3 or
ZX5, but upgraded. It's made for driving, with the correct position
easily attainable by drivers of any size. The supportive front sports
seats have a grippy cloth center section and leather-trimmed side
bolsters, the steering wheel has a thick, contoured, comfortably
graspable rim and is adjustable for both tilt and reach. The pedals
have contemporary aluminum and rubber trim; more importantly,
they are correctly placed for easy heel-and-toe shifting. Shift action
is slick and smooth. The instrument panel features black-on-silver
instruments with SVT badging. The rear seat has the same cloth as
the front, but vinyl replaces leather. It is split 60/40 for extra cargo
ability, but the trunk area, protected from view by an integrated
cover, is larger than that of some other popular hatchbacks.
SAFETY: The SVT Focus has Ford's ``Personal Safety
System''(tm), which includes an electronic crash severity sensor,
dual-stage front air bags, and front safety belt sensors and energy
ROADABILITY: SVT has increased the spring rates 10 percent at
the front and 20 percent at the rear compared to the standard
Focus, retuned the shocks for better roll damping, and increased the
diameter of the front stabilizer bar. The result is agile handling with
good turn-in and grip, and good ride comfort even with 215/45
WR17 tires. Only the most hard-core enthusiast or serious
autocrosser would want to stiffen it further.
PERFORMANCE: Tuning 1A: The 2.0-liter Zetec block gets
improved gas flow, stiffer valve springs, variable valve timing on
the intake camshaft, and a dual-stage intake manifold. Lightweight,
high-compression pistons further increase power, while forged steel
connecting rods help ensure engine integrity. The result is peak 170
hp at 7,000 rpm and 145 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm, but raw specs
don't even begin to tell the story. This little gem has major torque,
unlike many of its competitors. It's good right off idle and very,
very strong in the midrange, right where it is most useful in any sort
of driving from city traffic to competition. That, and the smooth
six-speed gearbox, mean that the SVT Focus is easy and fun to
drive just about anywhere. As a bonus, fuel economy is good and
emissions are low.
CONCLUSIONS: Ford's SVT tuning wizards have taken the
already enjoyable Focus hatchback and made into a true pocket
rocket, with no loss of civilized comfort or everyday usability.
