A stock zetec can go roughly 16.8 in the 1/4.

Your Rims are bigger, this is not a plus, however you have wider stickier wheels. This is.

I give you a 17.5 roughly First run. Do a few more, and your time will drop. I am going to say after you get warmed up, and accustomed to the tree and drop, 16.5 best, with a probable 16.8 Consistent.

Roll past the line with your front tires some, it will make them a bit more sticky on launch, when the tree drops to the yellow light RIGHT above green, drop and floor. YOu will spin, by the time it turns green you will THEN be leaving the line, and won't red light the system. Do NOT go in the wet box, it's a slightly modified Focus, you don't need it, it won't help you much. And will waste tire.

Other then that, that's my prediction....if i win i so want that paint job.....I WILL drive for it =]

Well my friend you better get to driving. My best time was 17.4. I ran very consitiant at 17.4-17.6. I did about 15 runs I think lol.

My problem is with the launch. I got the hang of the tree pretty much, I just need to launch from a higher RPM, to keep the secondary runner open in the intake. If I do that I think I can get down to a 17.0.

Thats all mute tho, as I'm planning a Zetec swap soon.
