I know it's just a drag race, but it's clever marketing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvqDx6kgNM4

I'm actually impressed by what the Fiesta did. It's also wicked cool that you can call Ford Racing and buy either one of those cars to race.

God bless you Jav, but you can't buy that fiesta that Foust has.

The Cobra Jet, sure.

But the best I find on the Ford Racing webstite (http://www.fordracingparts.com/), is that you can order a Cobra Jet here- http://www.fordracingparts.com/cobrajet/default.asp, and get a Fiesta R2 conversion kit here- http://www.fordracingparts.com/fiesta/ which ain't the RWD car that Foust has.

Damn that Cobra Jet is fast.

Really? Damn! I figured they'd have a kit for the rally guys by now.

Edit: Darn it all, the Ford Racing Fiesta section has a whole page dedicated to Block's Fiesta, and then when you go to buy the complete car the R2 is the only option, and while badass, it's just a FWD plain Rally America one. Surely they could hook you up with the right place if you called with enough cubic (energy drink) dollars?

Bouncing off the limiter for a good 200', too! That MPH is not correct for that ET FYI. I'd love to see that car re-geared for a 1/4 mile, put on 4 drag slicks, and then let loose again. 9.90's should doable.

I didn't know Roy was pregnant. Isn't he a little old to be having a baby?

Ha, that was fun. I wish you could get a fiesta like that.....

Ummm . . . the Cobra Jet is quick. Might be even faster without "power winders" and 100lbs less driver ballast. Oh, and looks like Foust had a faster RT.

You'll soon be able to buy the Fiesta R5 for approx $250k which is built for, funnily enough the R5 class in WRC2. In WRC trim it has a 32mm restrictor, you can have a bigger restrictor in Rally America

Or Olsbergs MSE in Sweden.

$400,000 for a rallycross-spec Fiesta Supercar. Or, you can try out a Supercar Lite (sort of a tube-framed, baby Fiesta Supercar) for only $185,000!
