Just how quick is a Focus RS, chipped and decatted?

Im going to Awesome over Christmas for a RR session with a friend, one
of his mates is tagging along in his RS as he also wants to go on the
rollers.

Am I going to get my ass handed to me on a plate on the way there and back??

He reckons its 270bhp, not sure of the weight though but I would imagine they have remapped LCR performance.

I have yet to have a ride in one, should put that right over Christmas though.

I think it may be a little quicker, but not to much that you would notice on the road

They were fast out of the box.. I know you have done a lot to your car, but I think the Focus might just be quicker

Thats what Im thinking Kev, the only thing thats giving me hope is that
there was nothing between my car and a Revo Stage 2 Leon Cupra R.

Have a look at his turbo glowing on his last RR day!!!

270+ shouldn't be a problem for a chip and decat.

Expect to see flames
I use to get flames all the time on my old Escort RS Turbo (don't laugh it was over 7 years ago)

and my Cosworth was crazy... I had the turbo glowing a few times after hard runs...[:D] plus flames on the limit (no I did not have a flamer kit..LOL...LOL)

As for that turbo - PINK

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA how gay
LOL...LOL..LOL.... I've seen red hot turbos but never Pink..... I'm sure the pink colour would mean that it's hotter than a red hot turbo....[:|]

They are fast in the standard form, in a line I got whooped by one from 40 - 100 [:(] I think you could be in trouble Gary [:p]

I've got Evo in front of me - 0-60 in 5.9 and 0-100 in 14.9, stock obviously, so urm, bloody quick is your answer!

My old man's got one, great cars, when the turbo kicks in the drama in the car is fantastic!

Gary, I know your cars quick But I think the Focus may have it, but not
only that the focus will kill you on the corners even though its
standard (they handle amazingly well), I think your best bet may be
some high ocatane fuel and show him some monster brakeing manouvres.
