Even though their actual test of the FS wasn't quite up to par, still ...

Not a fan of them anymore. Ever since they did a video on the acceleration of a Focus ST (or Fiesta - I can't remember) and loaded it up with 4 280lb dudes and really complained how slow it was. Like no **** lol

I've done courses with 5 people in the car, it was still fun in the FS, and it still felt fast.

Regarding their less than stellar testing of the Fusion Sport:
a) they didn't put the transmission into Sport Mode (car only shifted at 6,000 rpm)
b) they didn't use 93 octane fuel (wasn't available in Colorado, so either get octane booster or have someone bring in a 5 gallon jug of 93)
c) they brake torqued it for 5 full seconds during the 0-60 test (computer no doubt said "sorry, not playing")

Luckily the 2 guys were big and the chick was short.

The instructor was driving and I told him brake boost it to 2k for 1 second and let her rip. I guess he was thinking it was a normal Fusion based on his reaction as he struggled to get a good line thru the first cone.

Agreed. What I did at the drag strip was wait to until the tree started counting down before power braking it.

You don't have a ton of time once the first yellow lights up, but enough to get it done.

That’s my plan. Try to time it as the first light goes out, and start power braking then.
