now wait a sec. i go to the track ALOT and its a 1/8th. a few weeks after i bought my zx3 i went to the track with it and was putting down 10.7ish. small bolt on mods and went from stockers to 18s heavy ass rims and still dropped to 10.4ish because i was getting better traction off the line. im down in the 9.8 range now and i can tell ya 100lbs of weight doesnt matter THAT much. when i go i usually strip the interior. back seats, gone. subs, gone. spare tire, tools, jack, hood, sometimes front bumper, gone. but i almost always take my lovely lady friend with me because she likes to ride. my best time was 9.820 with just me in the car. my average with her in the car with me is around 9.9-10.0 and she maby weighs around 130lbs. my GF gonna kill me for this but there it is. something else has to be going on to hold you back that much. there is no way a focus should run over 11 sec in the 1/8th stock even fully loaded with passengers. well fat passengers i would say 11.3
