Ehh, I wouldn't say drag radials are a must to get into the 14's relatively cheap...Ultegra is at 14.9 and really the only *unique* thing he has is the SVT exhaust (header to tip)...he has some suspension work done to help with his launches, but other than that..all basic bolt-ons, he even has FR stage 1's....so...14's is deff. possible.

Drag radials aren't a must but they are sure worth it. I dropped .2 off my 60' and .3 off my 1/8 with them. I have also stripped the interior

i've watched Foci with boltons+cams+head+chip not break 14's close like 15.0 and 15.1. 14's NA is a task and needs good driving. 2fast4u is right FI is the easiet way to get 14's or faster. Hey but not everyone wants easy :) it's cooler to have a 14sec all motor Focus then a sc or tc

it should be possible to get even into the 13's without having to toss your back seat and what not. a friend of mine has an integra that is runnign consistant 12's and his car is still daily driven, and had no weight reduction done.

2)Get the bolt on and some head work. Mcnews car runs low 13s all motor with NO weight reduction. 12's with the shot.
