focusmaniaczx3 automatic foci bone stock usually go around 10.8-11. bolt ons like intake, throttle body, coil pack, wires, header, exhaust, tune, est. basically all the stuff you can just bolt onto the engine you will get around 10 flat-10.2 depending on how you launch the car. its very very bad to do but you will get a better launch revving up in neutral and sticking it in drive. once you get into things like internals, head work, cams, boost, nitrous, things like that its kinda hard to tell.

Zx3Zetec200 2.45 was my 60ft time. my bad i dont know what i was lookin at. 10.7 1/8th mile time. what are some other focus's getting in there 1/8th mile times?

focusmaniaczx3 what are ALL of the mods you have? sry but i seriously doubt you got a sub 2 sec 60ft with a basically stock engine and auto tranny. i have to dump the clutch at 4500rpms with DR's to get sub 2s. ive done 2.085 on 7.5 inch wide street tires and that was about perfect. just one quick chirp, no bog at all and no spin or wheel hop. only time i ever did it just right. there's no doubt in my mind you got the 10.7 but im guessing the 60ft was around 2.4-2.6

i apologize if you really did get that time but you can shut me up easily enough. got time slips?

Zx3Zetec200 i have 00 zx3, 4-2-1 obx header n magnaflow flex back and cone installed onto maf. ran it today and ran a 1.95sec 60 ft, 10.70 1/8th 67mph. stock i was runnin 11.65 at 60 mph. rear seat delete and take out spare gets rid of alot of weight. i get my programmer and tune by tom this week so ill let you know the difference in 60ft and 1/8th mile time with tune.

Cajun Boy876 Heres what I do. Since my car makes enough power to spin the wheels like crazy in Drive I have to manually shift. I drop it into first gear, push brake pedel down and right you want to press the gas untill you feel your car start lurching forward. Then at last yellow lift brake and try to control the gas to keep tires from spinning. Then right around 6,000 shift into 2nd gear and mash down pedal. You shouldnt have to shift into drive since its only 1/8. But do not shift from neutral into drive or any other gear, this will cause you to buy a new tranny.

streetracer in alot of the auto cars ive driven, they did well at launch if you have your foot on the brake, and at the last yellow move your foot from the brake pedal to the gas pedal and punch it. you should get a little wheelspin, minimal though, from that to get your rpms up and then just keep it floored.. but yeah with your mods and the auto tranny your not doin too bad time wise

jerryzx3 your time is pretty good for an auto. You are running closer to a high 18 sec. 1/4 mile. Dont launch by throwing it out of neutral into drive unless you are wanting to buy a new one. Practice launching in a parking lot or empty road by holding down the brake and giving it gas. You want to see how high your revs are when the brakes give. That will be about where you want to launch at. Practice this so you can do it fast because you dont want to burn up your converter. Good luck, let us know how it goes.
