Today's car is the Focus FR200. This is a Focus made by Ford to test aftermarket add-ons that might someday make it into production.

This car makes about 301 hp and 286 lbs-ft of torque, as opposed to the WRC Focus' 300 hp and 405 lbs-ft of torque. The FR200 is a FWD car of course, this allows more parts to be tested in relation to the street-produced Focii. Some of the parts on this car include a monster ball-bearing turbocharger that boosts up to 15 psi and has an air-to-air intercooler. It's got a custom computer that increases the output of the fuel pump when needed and it has bigger fuel injectors. It's also got the brakes from the Mustang Cobra. So think about the effect of brakes made for a car weighing 3500 pounds on a car that weighs 2500. Pretty effective.

oh yeah

I forgot to mention yesterday... we had speeches and no lecture in speech, so our teacher didn't have a chance to say anything notably stupid. Just wait till next week though.
