I've smoke several in the 1/8th with a 75 shot but the silly gas works better on the short end. Traction is the key. The new 350 suspension is set up for corners not drag launches. They have to feather the clutch at 5-6K to keep it from bogging. Just a little too fast on the clutch and it spins. Its a real balancing act. If you can launch the focus he's toast. Most of the guys running 350s around here are in the low 9 to high 8 range with minor bolt ons in the 1/8.
