WATCH - Super Street FF Battle 8 (w/Video)

Episode One of Tuner Battle Week 2016 is a front engine, front-wheel drive all-out assault

Dec 26, 2016
Videographer: BOWLS Films

Building on seven years of fierce, front-wheel drive action, the eighth annual FF Battle took place at Streets of Willow Springs road course in Southern California. Once considered econo-boxes and vehicles suited only for commuting, front-wheel drive cars and technology have come a long way, and FF Battle Presented By Continental Tire puts that progress on display in a time attack format.

Potential competitors submitted their vehicles and were chosen by Super Street’s editors. As with past events, the Honda presence was heavy; however, a brave Ford Focus ST answered the challenge to put up a tough fight. Entrants included turbo and supercharged builds, as well as a rather underpowered single-cam swapped third-gen. Acura Integra that showcased driver skill and a proper suspension setup instead of all-out power. Which front-engine, front wheel drive car took home top honors? Find out right here!
