How much more first hand can my experience be? I've been through the entire build of the car, worked on the car, and driven the car. Does the title of the car have to be in my name for you to believe the videos? As Tom mentioned above, hes seen the car first hand... and I have NOTHING against Tom. I just don't agree with his statement on the first page of this thread, "add the slicks and have fun." Because we took that advice and ended up not having much fun with arranging to have the car towed home twice.

Again, I've said this before and others have agreed with me as well. How many people actually drag race their Focus on a sticky tire and pull 60ft's better than 1.80? Please give me a number or better yet... are you someone who actually drag races their Focus on a real tire?
