if i disagree with someones post i'll tell them straight up. i dont take cheap shots.
i was simply stating what i thought is a good setup for all around use. it's what i use and i've had several different setups. with this im comfy taking long trips, driving around town, and strip.
someone used to have a set of rear end locks in design, but nothing ever came of them. simply was a couple heim joints with a link between that bolted to the subframe and lower arm, but as i said, never seen anything more on them.

simply put, we're stuck with what we have on the market to work with. no company has ever really gotten into making parts specifically for drag racing on the focus. most of us judt design and redisign until we find something that works.

well as it sits i don't have any 60' times with the turbo setup. I managed a 13.2 at 112 with a 2.8 60' this was on a really sticky track with falken 615s and fighting wheel hop when i had the procharger on the car and i'm making more power now and I havn't even begun to turn the boost up.

I'm planing on running hoosier DR's but i'm going to have to go with a set for 16's being I can't fit anything over my breaks without buying some prorace 1s or another 15 that will fit over my TCE 11.75" mini BBK
