Default R33 GTR vs Focus ST

On my way home from the gym I noticed a silver R33 GTR with an aftermarket exhaust. Caught up to him and we went for a run from about 30 to 100. To my surprise for all 3 runs I was ahead by about a car. He followed me to the gas station and told me how my little Focus surprised the hell out of him. Congratulated me the win and went off on his merry way.

Not sure if there was something going on with his car and he just didn't say anything but he let me have my moment of glory.

R33 GTR stock except exhaust

Focus ST: Intake, exhaust, tune, solid motor mounts (yayyyy no wheel hop)

How are you finding the ST compared to the Skyline in general?

IIRC R33 GTRs should be about mid to high 12 second cars so that's rather impressive for your Focus for sure!

My guess is the GTR had a boost leak or something going wrong.
