pocus02x3 well as it sits i don't have any 60' times with the turbo setup. I managed a 13.2 at 112 with a 2.8 60' this was on a really sticky track with falken 615s and fighting wheel hop when i had the procharger on the car and i'm making more power now and I havn't even begun to turn the boost up.

I'm planing on running hoosier DR's but i'm going to have to go with a set for 16's being I can't fit anything over my breaks without buying some prorace 1s or another 15 that will fit over my TCE 11.75" mini BBK

goinloco1 if i disagree with someones post i'll tell them straight up. i dont take cheap shots.
i was simply stating what i thought is a good setup for all around use. it's what i use and i've had several different setups. with this im comfy taking long trips, driving around town, and strip.
someone used to have a set of rear end locks in design, but nothing ever came of them. simply was a couple heim joints with a link between that bolted to the subframe and lower arm, but as i said, never seen anything more on them.

simply put, we're stuck with what we have on the market to work with. no company has ever really gotten into making parts specifically for drag racing on the focus. most of us judt design and redisign until we find something that works.

Cmon man don't play dumb, the "anyways..." was a pretty obvious shot at his lengthy but informative post that you disagreed with. Own up.

Yea wtf???

He disses you and then goes on to recommend an eibach kit and swaybar???? LOL a swaybar imparts ZERO damping when both sides move equally, and the eibach kit is basically a stock svt setup with better manners.

pwned him though by posting a pic of drag radials on your car - thats the hotness.

Plus i'll be able to adjust it for regular driving.
Since its sounds like you already have quite a few improvements over stock your best bet is to get a decent tire on there and hit the strip. Establishing a basline will help you determine what future modifications should be made. I recommend the new Hoosier Drag Radials in 225-50-15. They have been stable enough to drive to the track on and Honda guys have been getting them well into the 1.7's. They fit really well on a Focus without any rubbing. Heres a pic on my SVTF.
