I am typically 3-6 secs behind our local specSi National contender(s). The RE-01's will kill us right there, and if they are shaved the better!

What makes your car STS? What motor do you have 2.0 or 2.3? Getting a set of adj. shocks & dampers would make a great improvement, and then a designated set of racing tires will also shave some time off. The list is like never-ending.

But your car is most likely heavier then a SVT, definitely stock for stock won't handle as well as a SVT and possibly never will, so don't get discouraged! You probably have 500;bs. + on a SpecSi... In STS that equates to death.

If you want to be competitive drop back to HS or move up to FSP... IMHO a Focus has no place in STS. -flame away-
