times way down with nitrous!!!!
 
ok, so i went to the track on fri. the 14th and ran my car with no nos and it was also my first at the strip with the focus and i ran a 15.9, then i went back with the nitrous and my first pass was a 14.839 and the second pass was 14.535,

......the Saleen is soppust to run a 14.00 from stock....Do you guys think thats a good pass?????.....



Mods:

It will probably take a few tries to learn how to drive a 14 second quarter. That doesn't sound too bad for the first time out...

Front drive,nitous, and a stick has got to be tricky to launch. What was your mph at the end?

And your 60'?

i actually lounched with out nitrous, i had it kick-in in second gear.....my mph was 96.43...and my 60 foot was 2.29

This is a 2.0 right.

SALEEN_N2O 12-24-2007 09:45 AM

2.0 IS CORRECT[hihi]

It doesn't sound to far off to me. The Saleen body kit adds weight. If you had some sticky tires and start using the nitrous part of he way through first will make a difference. Also tradck condition make a big difference. My Mustang went 14.4 on Fri night test and tune. Then on Sat. night grudge match it went 14.0.

whoever said a sleen focus is supposed to run 14's stock?

it is hardly modified at all from the factory. and sinse you have an 04 saleen(old bodystyle, you should have the 2.3)

remember this also, your car is an 04, its been around for 4 years now roughly, its not a young lad anymore, its gonna be alittle slower than when it was first built and really kickin.
