Second time at the track with the SVT
 
I did pretty damn bad I'd say. I ran 2 16.2's, 2 16.1's, a 16.4 and a 16.6. I was told if I pulled the ABS fuse it would disable the traction control, so I did it, and it didnt help too much. I started just doing higher RPM launches, and it helped a whole lot, though my clutch hates it. I ended up racing my buddy's golf GTI vr6 at the end of the night, and I ran 16.22 and he ran 16.23, so we've been joking about how I beat him by a hundreth of a second. Anyway, I'm not gonna drag race this car too much anymore, it doesnt seem too great for it.

I have a 3 door. I'm trying autox next. I managed a 16.4 in my old zetec zx3.

Drag radials are a real big help....if you have excessive wheel spin. If your clutch is a little weak, hooking the tires up is the last thing you want to do.

I know I repeat myself but.............If you want to drag race...you need a different car. If you want to really love your Focus? go to the twisties. You can run with anybody there.
