We never had a problem yet with the stock axles.

The black turbo focus has stock suspension. I am sure suspension, wider bigger drag slicks, and traction bar would help reduce the 60 foot time.
Cool, my bad. I only saw the times I posted... I even looked on FJ too trying to find it.

I say great. I only saw the 1.94 posted and he corrected me. I'm not trying to start a fight here, so why are you provoking me? I'm trying to get things in this thread back on track.

Never even had the desire to hit the strip with it... why run 1/4 mile every 30 minutes (on a good night ) when you can run flat out for 20-30 minutes at a time (depending on what track you're at...
LOL... this I completely agree with.

We're just trying to help you guys out and all you wnat to do is be a dip shit about everything.

Dont you think somethings wrong where there are alot of other Foci out there with just as much power or more NOT having this issue? Wise the up and take the help and get over your "were the fastest or making the most power: ego trip your on.
Whoa hold on, I'm not trying to be a dipshit about anything. Like I said above, I'm trying to get this thread back on track. It was quickly becoming a pissing contest about who has more experience, and I'm trying to get back to the stock axles. I always read the posts by you, Tom, AND Eric alike with the full knowledge that you all know what you've been doing. Make love, not e-war.

So back on topic, I'm not dismissing the fact that many many people have been running their stock axles with lots of power, but I'm also not dismissing the fact that Dominic did break his, twice.
