Re: Check out this focus

Is that just a lucky photograph or is that car RWD??????????? The front wheels are clearly visible, and unless it's a really fast shutter speed (or some other technical thing I don't understand),that means the burnout is happenning at the rear.

Now Ford Racing Performance Parts in the US sells a V8 conversion kit, which includes a Rear Wheel Drive conversion. Has someone imported one? We need answers now!!!!

Nah I reckon that's the Fast Fours rice burner they built, by the lights and the white rims, it's definitely still a fwd, just got extractors and the lot, I think it's putting out near 140kw+ from memory. I heard that thing was modded to within a millimetre of it's life...

Re: Check out this focus

could still be a fwd, depends on if the car has moved from the point of blowing out all that smoke and how the wind is blowing.....

Zetec is right guys... This is the Fast Fours magazine ST170.

We did some work on it for them... same rego plate and everything.. which means it is still FWD. This car hasn't got an LSD, so chances are all that smoke is being made by only one of the front tyres

This is FORD country, where on a quiet day you can hear Holdens rusting

Re: Check out this focus

It has to be returned to Ford after it's stint with the mag, so massive mods like that were out of the question.
