Going racing tomorrow... Help!
Going drag racing for the second time tomorrow at lebanon Valley

First trip was rained out for the most part after a couple not so stellar runs

Car 2007 ST FSwerks stage 2 10psi
street tires
stock motor mounts
Few questions for the more experienced guys

where to launch at?

psi for front tires? running dunlop dizzera star specs

any other things to consider?

Roushturboedzx3 06-14-2012 04:32 PM

i would try around 25psi in the tires, you will have to feel out what rpm to launch at on those tires. but just have fun. don't worry to much about your times since this is your first time out.

Thats crazy! Tomorrows my first time running my boostd focus down the track also!! Sorry just had to say something lol

TitanFocus76 06-14-2012 09:51 PM

Haha no biggy. Good luck, im sure we will be the only fwd cars there

avoid the water box and squeal the tires in the vht before staging

limit tire spin as much as possible because with your stock mounts, wheel hop can cause damage

have fun!

Sorry for jacking again but I'm here at the track and I hit an 14.5 was my fastest spinning like crazy. Lol. They right about the wheel hop!!!!

Hmmmm. With a turbo, once you get your motor mounts switched over to Race mounts, I bet you'll really notice a big difference.
