according to road tests posted online, the manual version is good for low 14's at about 100mph in the 1/4. it would eat your car

its automatic with heavy chrome 20s.. he got me pretty good the other day. about 3 car lengths.

No u wont... A 350z hr pulls about a car and 1/2 on it till 60ish. A 350z hr pulls busses on my svt...

Those modd u listed are good for what? 8-11whp? So if he pulled 3 on u already expect him to pull 2ish now...

Imo u do the honking till 3 then pull on the 2nd honk ;) hell prob catch up anyways

^^^^ this, hahaha. i like the pull on second idea. the driver is also a tad new to driving this thing. im gonna still try, do the mods listed, and prob gut the car first and see how close. i can beat him in the E30, but i really wanna put him down with the focus. it would be alot more embarassing for him.

You need boost.. Or a 50shot

i wish i could afford boost. i have other projects that take the boost money away from the focus.

I have those mods you listed on my D20 & my car does 15.9, so if it has heavy rims and an auto, it could be a driver's race. A header and a motor mount might get you even with him.

I doubt it would account for a whole second.. Unless he's missing shifts it's not going to be pretty... Our cars aren't meant for straight line racing.. The design don't fit it... Sure you can make it a 10sec car with money and lots of boost but if you really want to unleash the potential.. Autocross is where it's at.. Now if your hell bent on straight racing... Save 1000 bucks.. Get a nitrous kit and tune... That will eat him up.. I know you want to beat him right now... But the only way ull win.. It's if he is a piss poor driver.... And oh yea.. Keep it on the track peeps!
