no, it's crap.....focuses are crap, slow as balls........


WELCOME!!!!!! You have arrived to the place that will teach you how to go faster, corner better, and look mean with your lil' focus.

Actually, I had a 2000 Black ZTS sedan, and my first run ever was a 16.63. I only ever ran it 3 times one night. It was totally stock, too. Mine was stick though. I'd say you did fine for a rough estimate. Yeah, I wouldn't be neutral dropping a stock focus......

If you want to mod it more.......start looking into the intake/header/exhaust threads on this page for a start.........

HAPPY MODDING!!!!!!!!!

^^That's definitely my feeling, although I have grown more understanding of other paths to automotive Nirvana is I have grown up too... So do whatever makes you happy!

And no neutral drops. Just brake torque it off the line, and put it in a low gear...
