HAPPYHANDS Nice. My focus only does 10.3s on a good day in the 8th. Im wanting to hook some spray up, but I burnt up my clutch the last time i went to the track. So i need to get one before i do that step. Next time i go to Maxton Mile in April you should come and bring you car. It also when HotRod does there Top Speed Event. Its a good time, and as long as you have the governor taken off you can see what it can do in a mile. Alot of people say "oh my car does this in a mile", but have no proof to show. At least when i say mine did 115.01mph i have papers showing. Many people cant say they have run a full mile. So its cool to be able to. Well atleast for me it is.

focusmaniaczx3 man ill tell ya, its a hoot and a half. the focus at the drag strip is always fun but you cant expect to really beat much of anything unless you have something up your sleeve like boost or a fairly large shot of giggle gas. i already have the latter which isnt even hooked up and im about to lay hands on a JRSC. i plan on doing some piggybacking if you catch my meaning. anyhow i still like dragging the focus for the hell of it even though i usually dont do much better than 10.0 if even that well. i dont know when lawn mower racing will be in mooresville next but ill be sure to let you know. its a pretty well spent day to go to the drag strip and then go watch lawn mower racing afterwards. nothing like watching a freaking lawn mower drift around a track

HAPPYHANDS I got those tire because of auto-x i do. The ECU was messed with by my tuner and me with a SCt tuner.I could of hurt the tune a little wiht me messing with it. I was trying to get more top end out of the car. The tune is more taward me having better topend. Im working on a record Maxton Mile. Thats why i went with the F2 header. people said it was good for top end power. The car really isnt good for 8th mile. I want to see 9s in the 8th. Im also looking for 120mph at Maxton Mile.

etayman Little bit off topic but with a stock zetec and a good driver wahat kind of 60' should you be pulling? My best was 2.49 but it was the first fime ever at the track and I never made it back with out any mods.

Bwinkelsas "ecu has been played with" how so? 205/50/15 is like a 23inch tall tire id try slipping the clutch from about 4000ish rpm to work on getting that 60' down, seat time is the most important thing to make your car faster.

HAPPYHANDS 2.3 is the 60 foot.....I wouldnt say it if it wasnt true and i didnt have the proof....If I post a time or speed i will have the slip to show...I have run that same time twice with my car. That was before the header and exhaust. Now with the header and exhaust the best i can get is a 10.4s I do understand you questioning it. I have looked at other times on here with close to the same mods as me and it seems i run a little faster than most. I thinking its where the tracks at maybe?

etayman That sound a little off cause my 03 with Flexback,CAI,Dogbone and strutbar ran a 10.68 in the best run with those mods, and to be honest it was 95 out street tires 40psi and the tires spun barked and hoped half way through 2nd gear. So i would say if your 60' was any better then mine i should be blowing my 8th out the water no problem. What was the 60'?
