neojen just go to an old back road with a straight away and practice launchs and shifting if you cant afford to practice at the track.. Ive practiced launching my little crx on an old back road with a nice straight away.. its fun, but Ive gotta back off right as I hit 4th.. because the straights gone..though it handles great, just cant get through that turn in 4th, gotta slow and hit it in 3rd..

maybe with the SVT, but I just saw in a new MM&FF mag a bone-stock looking focus just broke into the 11's with a Vortech and the Focus next to that had 14.xx as its estimated time.

But yeah, for the SVT, its meant to be on an autox course, hopefully Jessica and I will be able to take both our cars out to one soon.

Diffenately work on your launches man, you should easily get into the 15's

racerdan Drag radials are a real big help....if you have excessive wheel spin. If your clutch is a little weak, hooking the tires up is the last thing you want to do.
