    Lot of people are not into body kits and mine is a 2001... Running behind, let me put a little dyno video finishing the 20psi tune.

    I do like to see people giving the Mk III more attention, but in the end, 551whp FTW!

    I have not near the power your car, nor the mod list but a lot of that has to do with style differences and the fact it's my second focus build and have only owned it a year. I have no high power car video to post nor would I win if we raced for it like you said. And that doesn't bother me at all.

    I have the utmost respect to the power you are putting down and because of that I also believe your car should win

    Thanks buddy, voting doesn't look that way but is good, have gotten a lot of flame for the body kit since the build started 2 years ago. You really nailed it with the coilovers and wheels, looks super nice an clean, very euro.

    I want that Euro grill!

    I like the Mk3, but I'm biased. The spec sheet of your '01 is extremely impressive though.

    Wow, so I am assuming the EVO5 Body kit nullifies every other part of that mod list or the obvious ridiculous amount of work that was put into the car? Nothing against jholso, the car is clean, but it doesn't push any envelope. Though it could be argued the kit is dated on the mk1 (and not my cup of tea at all), I can definitely recognize someone's commitment in making something special. For heart, build, and what the performance represents for the Focus community, my vote is for Mother Focus.

    The mk3 is purdy

    But the mk1 is bad ass.

    Thanks guys! Jholso's car is really clean, lot of GTI's will die for that look and he achieved it effortlessly, will like to see it with 300-325whp for fun. I'm glad to be even considered for FOTM and be among this year 12 cars. Think it's going to be between Mach Five, Wobb, Jholso or Cedwards.

    Mother Focus has a ton of power mods but that doesn't mean he should automatically win. If power was the only important thing then we wouldn't be driving an ugly sub 200hp econobox, we would all be driving Mustangs or other higher power cars. Obviously appearance matters as well, and that must be showing through in people's voting decision.

    People will always choose who to vote for based on their own criteria. My criteria is simple, it's "which car would I rather own?" In this case owning jholso's car entices me more than Mother Focus' car.

    Is my vote right and yours wrong? Absolutely not! It's what's right for ME. I don't think we should give members a hard time for who they do or don't vote for based on another member's voting criteria. This is all for fun after all.

    I don't like your kit either

    I would however prefer to own your car. Which is also how my vote was decided.

    He voted for you despite his dislike for your body kit, but he also states:

    That means he is criticizing people who voted differently than he did. Once again, people vote based on their own criteria, and that's all that matters. It doesn't make one person's vote more right or wrong than any other.
