Roush Focus
 
One of the few cars i had lined up with last weekend...it's a friends Roush Focus Stage II. From what i understand that's interior/exterior mods along with suspension, 155hp and a decent weight reduction. I figured he would of gotten me but i ended up getting him through the launch and all gears ending in a 1/2 win. He's not completely sure what is all done to it because he's a goofy ****er who decided one day to just go buy a new car cuz he was bored, and i'm not very familiar with focus's. Does anybody have alot of experiences with them and what these roush focus's are about?

ROUSH STAGE 2 FOCUS

Like over-the-top styling and handling? This one is for you.

The Stage 2 includes every exterior option, which clearly expresses the theme of the Roush Focus - go big, or go home. From the wide mouth fascia with oversize fog lamps, to the enlarged side skirts, to the unique upper- and mid-wings, you'll have heads turning. Until, that is, you use the specially-designed lowering springs, shocks, struts, and sway bar to tear around the next corner and out of sight.

Of course, for those who like their interiors big as well, a number of options are available to suit you. Gauges too boring? Spice them up with a Performance-series silver trim gauge cluster. Tired of the stock cloth seats? Upgrade to our color-matching sport seating system. Want shorter, crisper shifts? Our short throw shifter base, arm, and ball are the solution.

Big time style, big time performance - the Roush Stage 2 Focus.http://www.roushperf.com/images/focus/stage2_focus.jpg[▼]

A Saleen focus? BOOOO

center exhaust? BOOOO

The Saleen N20 Focus is badass. Except there is a reason why it says "with everything you need to melt the front tires except for a full nitrous bottle, the main hose to the engine and a couple of jumpers to hook up the wiring." Because as soon as you do that, you've voided your warranty. That's why they don't hook it up from the factory. What a scam.

n8r 04-08-2004 12:18 AM

I dont see anything special, its still a focus, and if I were roush, Id "focus" on something else. Maybe a roush lightning?

btw i know boo bad joke, but I liked it, and thats all that matters :D

Laser02 04-08-2004 12:26 AM

Yeah. That. Was a really bad joke.

I don't know if Roush would take an SVT vehicle and modify it? Saleen and Roush just seem to do the factory vehicles.

Dom 04-08-2004 12:36 AM

SVT is a tuner like Saleen/Roush. They just have ties in the factory.

A Roush Lightning would be cool. I can see the side exhaust and big wing now. :D

Laser02 04-08-2004 12:39 AM

Yes. But you don't see tuners taking other tuners cars and modifying/reselling them. An SVT Roush Lightning?........

exactly, there's a film on the bottle where if it's broken (it will be broken if you use it) that's all they have to look for when you bring it in after spraying like a mad man. It's primary purpose on that car is for show. Which is just retarded in itself, if i wanted a "show" nitrous setup i'd go put NOS stickers on my blue air compressor tank and mount it.

saleen/roush need to get on the lightning. now that would be badass

Dom 04-08-2004 12:47 AM

Well, it would have to be a F150 then. :p

Laser02 04-08-2004 12:48 AM
