FINALLY have time slips

My first attempt at the dragstrip w/o the LSD was a disaster! These times are after the install of a Torsen T-2 Diff. BUT still on STREET TIRES!

02 Focus ZX3

ON STREET TIRES (notice the 60ft times!)

1st pass: 13.464 @ 105.65 mph 2.250/ 60 ft.
2nd pass: 13.517 @ 105.12 mph 2.274/ "

276hp/260tq @ 11 psi dynoed in the middle of the summer in hot/humid conditions in south Florida.

Mods:

. Eagle Rods
. JE Pistons
. Crower Cams, springs & retainers
. APR Head Studs
. 42lb/hr injectors
. SCT tune by Steeda (X caliber 2)
. Steeda 65mm t/b
. Custom header by CFT (Central Florida Turbo)
. Custom down pipe 2.5" (CFT)
. Custom exhaust 2.5"
. Custom intercooler piping
. Spearco intercooler
. Turbonetics T3 Turbo (.48)
. Turbonetics Raptor blow off
. Tial wastegate w/open dump
. Steeda poly mounts (all 3)
. Greddy Turbo Timer
. Steeda Shifter
. Fidanza Alum. Flywheel
. Clutchmasters 4 puck clutch
. Steeda springs
. Torsen T-2 Diff (Ford Racing)
. STREET TIRES BF Goodrich Sport Comp?

Obviously, it can and will be a bit quicker with the addition of slicks.
This will be added along with an ET update in February when the dragstrip
reopens.

Yep, the STREET TIRES simply get blown off under full boost in 1st & 2nd gears; that's why the 60' times are so high. Don't know if it will but I'm going to shoot for a 12.999 ET using a set of slicks when the track opens up again in Janurary. Stayed tuned.........
