Thread from the dead. Yeah, I only brought this back because I saw all the crap talking going on...Well, my fiance drives a '99 Chrysler 300M auto 4speed and I ran it a few times at the 1/4 mile track for the hell of it. Only mods were removing the FULL SIZE 17" CHROME SPARE TIRE and the back seat. I ran consistent 15.6's @ 90-91mph. That car would be perfect for bracket because every run was within 3/10ths of each other. You guys are right about the gearing though, first gear goes to like 46mph or something ridiculous. But I don't think most Foci are just gonna stomp on something that runs that quick. I've knocked out my fair share of integras and mazda 6's in the "Corporate Cruiser"

EDIT: However, the newer 300 ...that thing does weigh quite a bit more than the one my fiance drives if I remember correctly.

roflwaffle... 17" is small for a tire.. even on a focus... would look like a skittle on a power wheel if the 300M had that on ...

it is kinda funny that is being talked about because my POS spi gave some getto rich wanabe and his V6 300 a run for its money today. i jumped off the start got in front and took a right hand cruve at about 35-40mph and he laid off he probally would beat me heads up though.
