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.
