but it was a good time, It was my first time racing with the Turbo set up, my first pass was terrible slipped clutch in every gear 16.0. After that I had to launch slow and at lower rpms, but my best of the day was a 14.6 @ 98

Around here (Ontario, Canada) we don't have 1/8 mile tracks only 1/4 mile...
I have been drag racing my 5.0 mustang for years, but never my ST.
It's totaly diff... to start off the 5.0 is automatic, so shifting is easy :)
and it's really consistent on the laugh - just press the breaks and gas at the same time and let go of the breaks. The burnout is also easy...
The 5 speed on the st shifts well, but it's not easy to lauch properly... too much rpms (the case on the videos) a lot of spin... not enough and it bogs down at the start... at least it wasn't wheel hoopin it was a straight smooth spin :)

careful with wheelhop!
it kills trannys and axles

This was at sunshine speedway which is a 1/8 mile track only.
my best time was 10.6 and 2.45 was with a passenger and launching at 3,000rpms... I know I could get into the 9's with a cleaner launch cuz I was suffering from wheel hop kinda bad...
There is another event coming up this thursday and I think I'm going to go again after work... Racing ends at like 3am...
Hope to see some more focus's attend out there and running down the track as well!

|djo90||did you do just the 1/8 or did you do a 1/4 mile?|
