Alright. My post concerns the differences between a Focus and a Lancer ES. My friend has a Lancer ES and brags about it all the time saying he could beat my stock ZX3 in a race. We were on the freeway one night around 2 AM and we were racing back in forth, i was going 95 and he couldn't keep up. So, I think Focus is better than a Lancer ES. Please no Evo crap because I know a Evo would kill a stock Focus. My friend just says his is faster because it has the name Lancer branded on his car...and he hates Ford's because they are American and not Japanese BS.

I got a Lancer ES as a free rental when I took my EVO in for it's first oil change.

There is no way in hell that I would take a Lancer ES even over an SPI Focus. After my first minute driving the Lancer, I said I can't believe that my EVO is based upon this, there is no way I could take 15K and make this Lancer into an EVO. The Lancer ES' steering, suspension and interior, and engine power have nothing on a Focus. The Lancer drives like a Kia Sephia and is in no way a "drivers" car.

The Lancer folks over at evolutionm.net put in a lot of money and time just making their vehicles feel like a Focus does right from the Factory. There are quite a few that have made their Lancers better than a Focus, but I would rather start where the Focus is than where the Lancer is.

Demonfire came to the first g2g I went to for evolutionm.net and his focus got so much attention and respect that demonfire, focusownerskid, and I were quite surprised. Most of the Lancer owners there gave his car many


Here were some of the quotes from evolutionm.net:

The Focus with the system that romped on all our systems combined.

I think that was the most noise the Hospital parking lot had seen in a loong time. Thanks for showin' up!
! Props to the guy with the focus, cause that was one hell of a tuned driving machine, incorporating every aspect of what car modifying is made of.......tahnk you for your support.
P.S. The Lancer badge on my EVO was taking off rather quickly after buying the car.
