From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.

Zetec S is 118bhp but only has a 0-60 of 9.6seconds, not sure what they have done there.

I do hope the new ST is better, or they make an RS!!!!!

to be honest i wouldnt why it wasnt quicker because its lighter than the older fiesta and with the extra bhp i thought there would be a bigger difference, maybe its the gear ratio with all this eco driving of today

Cheaper insurance band attempt maybe? My 6 is Grp15 partly because when they did the test, it was 3 up with a full tank etc, so it's 8.5 on the book, though in reality it's around 7.4 secs.

The new ZS is uber lightweight IIRC!...

Yeah it is very light, must be the gearbox... WHY!!!!!!

As said if ford wasn't so far behind I may have bought the zetec s instead of the C2.. they where just too late.

9.3 seconds mate, did a timed run in my bog standard red Zetec S (Ford Fair) on paper :)

New Fiesta Zetec S weighs 940kg, old one weighed 1120kg

New chassis made stronger but lighter by ford helped drop the pounds :thumbsup:

Pumaspeed one is pushing about 150bhp atm, absoloutely flies

And apparantly the mountune upgrade offered through Ford dealers (like old fiesta) apparantly gives ST performance, one online does 0-60 in under 8 seconds

Should of kept mine but hard times called for hard decisions

And that picture i :lolz: :lolz: big time my god Ryan trust you! :doh: :lol:
