    You’re right, my apologies. I thought the headlights were Focus.

    Oh I understand the point you are trying to make. You don't understand mine. I'm done addressing you.

    Didn’t Top Gear do a test and Focus RS beat a 2015 Mustang GT? 2018 looks like an improvement.

    Ah, suck at conversation then. Gotcha.

    Protip(that you should learn in high school english): If a person can't get your point, then you are not clearly stating it.

    If you don't know how to state your point and not be a vague troll, then dont waste my time.

    I used to also think UAmach1’s posts were trolling, but they’ve become more entertaining now that I think of him as the Mustang GT model ambassador.

    ITT:
    People amazed their much more expensive car beat a cheaper one.
    Person pointing out, yeah, no shit.
    People still feeling need to defend their purchase for no reason.

    Should I act equally amazed the GT beat the Fiestas? Then act insulted when it's pointed out I should have expected that result?

    People act more childish in this sub than they do on CivicX.com or FocusRS.org

    Yes, I thought they did actually touch.

    If the Mustang GT hadn't nudged the GT350R off the track at the last bend, I'm sure the GT350R's lap time would have been even better, by at at least a few tenths, maybe more...
