2013 Ford Focus ST: I Have No Idea What I'm Doing

November 23, 2012

By the time you read this, The Focus ST and I will have already gone through tech and might very well be on course in our LT auto-x challenge-shoot-out-death-match, at California Speedway.

Mark jumped on the FR-S bandwagon and thinks that it will turn the better time in our highly unscientific testing. I, on the other hand, picked the Focus ST, just to be a pain in the ass.

I do have my reasons (it has a huge power advantage, a linear power delivery, a willing chassis and it' quick on it' feet), but I do have my reservations (it' front wheel drive, it' heavy, it' front wheel drive and it' heavy) with the ST but I'm going to give it my best.

My best, however, might be a bit lacking. See that fool in the photo above? Yeah, that' me auto-xing my old 1994 TransAm. At some point I thought that would be a good idea, too. I guess I never learn.

Stay tuned for the results.
