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.
I'm glad this discussion has brought someone else in that actually takes a Focus to drag strip and launches it the right way. However, it looks like all of that tire spin has saved your axles and hindered your 60ft times. What 60fts are you hoping to achieve in the Turbo Focus?
