Back From The Strip
Ashley and I decided to go to the strip today. We went to Mason Dixon dragway. They were having a T&T day.
This was only my second time drag racing.

Last time, my best time was 16.61.

The only thing we have done to the car since last time is remove the back seats, and spare tire and jack.

This time, my best was 16.21. It's a lot better than last time! I'm still not driving it perfectly. I really need to get my 60 ft times down!!
I'll post up some slips later(dig. camera needs charged up).

We really had a blast! The only problem was the fact that we were the only Focus there! That really sucked!

did you two take one car, or did you both make runs? (if you both made runs, did you let ashley win? lol) [joke]

sounds like fun [thumb]

We only have one Focus. It's both ours.

My fav moment of the day was a 350Z came rolling in. God, I couldn't stop staring at that thing.

Aaron didn't think it would run that good.

It ran a 13.6.

i didnt know if you both had a focus or if you shared, but sharing is cool. (unless its my focus, lol) me and my fiance share my focus. (by the way she registered here and is posting a little under the screenname housecat4ever)

whats up with you and the 350z? yeah, 13.6 is nice. better then what i would have guessed. by the way, where i work, there are 2 350z's. just thought you would like to know....

i dont think they are all that great, id rather a Mach1.... i think they are around the same price anyway......... i bet your having the same problems i think i was having......... TRACTION, stupid stock tires spin all the time while im accelerating, i dont even need to drop the clutch to spin them, just give it some gas[8]

what do you guys have done to your focus?

Chick 03-13-2004 10:47 PM

Look at my profile.

We just don't have the UDP installed yet.

Here's my best slip yet. My 60 ft. times really need some work. I'm on the left.

Sorry about the quality, we don't have a scanner.

Good run, you really need to work on your launch though. You should be running high 15's no problem.

Lil_RedZX3 03-14-2004 12:31 AM

Yeah, I know. The only problem is that the nearest track is 120 miles from here!
