escort with 200HP should be just as fast if not faster than a CLS due to weight difference

Maybe your Double Decker wing gave you an extra 200 HP. I mean that mod is serious business.

I wonder why some people even take their cars to the track and waste their money. That escort is a perfect example.

If your car can't break the 15 second barrier, they should have everyone at the finish line pointing at you and laughing till you leave.

In no way am I saying my CL-S is fast compared to other cars at the track, but against the average car on the road it is slightly above average.

What a lame comment!

People have to start somewhere. And the track is a lot safer! A 16 to 17second car will still kill people.

Who said anything about safety? I didn't say that if they didn't go to the track that they should race on the road instead.

Cars running a 16.5 and trying to find their starting point isn't going to accomplish much. How much time can they really cut off without going FI? Only option to get their times much lower is to go FI, then the base 16.5 time is pointless because that is on just all engine.

Perhaps my comment is lame, but in this economy, people who can only afford an escort should save their $50 at the track and put it towards paying off their car because it's a fine practical car but not a speed racer unless you want to drop a lot of money.

I took my beater volvo to the track a few months ago, and I was by far the slowest one there I still had a great time and plan on doing it again. Doesn't matter if you want to take your 10 second gutted charger or a 76 moped, either way, your racing and still having a great time doing it.
